Printer Performance degrades on large print jobs during the last few pages.
Posted on 2007-11-29
Current System - XP SP2, Intel 945 express chipset, 3 ghz Pentium D, 2 gbytes Ram. Print spooler on Sata Raid Drive in temp directory dedictated to spooler, 100 gbytes free, 66 gbytes of unfragmented free space .
When printing 100 page plus document, the printer will slow down on the last 10 or so pages. It will pause and then print in cycles. It always completes the print job without errors. This only occurs on the second or third 100 page print job. The first one or two jobs print ok. The printer is an Epson Stylus Photo R800. I have it set to economy portrait. I also have a Espon R1800 photo printer installed.
