    Konica Minolta bizhub C280 Taking ages to print

    Hi all

    i will try the best i can to explain this:

    I just updated the driver on our 2003 print server. (added both 32 & 64bit driver)

    Now it just seem to take forever to send the job to the printer. Any program (Office 2007, 2D Design) will go to a crash like state untill it done which takes around 30 secs now.

    Before i updated the driver it used to take a second to do this.

    Any ideas before i throw it out of the window.

    Thanks

    I have a C280 running on 2008R2 with the 360SeriesPCL driver 3.2.0.0 without issue, in Isolated mode.

    Does it make a difference if you go to a machine and manually clean up the drivers?
    Which driver are you using?
    And is there a compelling reason to upgrade the driver?

    Whats the difference with th isolated mode?

    No difference. Seems to be happening more with windows 7 than xp.

    Running driver 3.6.0.0 PCL on Server 2003. (hopefully will have 2008rc2 print server during the summer.

    The reason i updaed the driver as it keeps printing from Tray 1 all the time. it wouldnt print from tray 2 or bypass.

    We had a slow printing issue here with our C280, solution was to put the printer's IP in the proxy bypass setting in IE. Don't know why, maybe something to do with how it connects for authentication I don't know.

    I was smashing my head for days before figuring it out.

    Hope it helps,

    Dan

    Edit ----
    More info: This issue suddenly arose when our ISP (YHGfL) moved to a new filter system. Worked fine before, took ages after.

    It prevents one print driver from messing with another print driver (if you suspect you have an iffy driver). Small overhead on print server, but negligible.

    Can do it on clients too (certain things it's handy, mainly exotica (lasers, 3d printers, plasma cutters) for ease of troubleshooting.

    Had a similar issue last year. Set printer ports to RAW rather than LPR and appears to have sorted the issue.

    We had some of these but it ended up being the controller on the copier that was faulty. I really hated the fiery stuff.
