Computers hang when printing on new printer
Posted on 2008-06-16
I just replaced a HP4200 with a HP4250. Since doing so, several people's machines seem to hang for several minutes trying to either pull up the print dialog box or print preview. I installed the printer on the server, drivers only, and then shared it on the network as I notmally do. My own computer started doing this, deleting and reconnecting the printer worked for me, however not working on several others. I used the PCL5 driver. Also noticed the greyscales and other graphics are not printed as well as on the old 4200.
Any thoughts? It's a pain to reinstall the printer on the server and reconnect eveyone each time so best I ask before spending a day on reconnecting everyone's printer again!
