I have a CLJ 3700N connected directly to my PC via Parrallel Cable. I have a color, photo quality page that I need to print, but when I print to the 3700 it takes more than 5 minutes to begin printing. I can see the job spool to the printer, the file size in the print queue is huge (around 86MB), but even after it shows 86/86 as being transmitted it, the printer shows as "processing job" for 5 mins after that. I'm able to print the same page on a lower quality DeskJet without any delays. Is there anything I can do to make this faster? I assume it's the file size that it's choking on, what is making it so big for only this printer?
I also tried using a plain "Color Laser Jet" driver, to print to the same printer. The file size was much smaller (around 25mb) but if it was any faster at all, it was negligible.
