HP Color LaserJet 4650... SLOW!

I have a Color LaserJet 4650 that all of a sudden whenever I print photographs it's taking forever... say 13 pages, 4 pics to a page... the first 3-4 pages print out w/ in the first 3-4 minutes... which is really slow for this machine. Then each additional page takes 2-3 minutes to spit out one page. This just started w/in the last 2 weeks or so. It was find up until then.

This is connected directly to my pc, win xp sp2, 768MB RAM. It is shared out over the network, and does the same thing no matter which machine tries to print to it. I would think it was the size of the pics... but I've printed pics off the same camera... 30-40 pages worth w/o this problem.

Of course when I call HP they tell me it's out of warranty.

I have a ton to print and at this rate it's going to take the rest of the week... PLEASE help! Oh and by the way... I resized all the photos down hoping that it was spooling too much, no luck!

TIA!

Have you tried the basic troubleshooting, i.e. turning off the printer, waiting a few minutes, then turning it back on?  Is the driver the most up to date, as well?  These can both affect the speed.

Printers are so nitpicky! I had to resize all the graphics, because the group of them was so large the printer was choking on it... then I had to restart EVERYTHING before it would accept the changes, AND I had to change to automatic instead of best quality in the printer setup

I agree with you...I had to deal with several of them that were acting up yesterday.  One of them kept coming up with an error about the wrong paper size.  It turns out that when the paper was cut it was off by a millimeter from the standard size.  So, is it working now?
