Slow PDF printing on Canon imageRunner C3200 on Windows 7
Posted on 2010-01-07
We are currently using a Canon imageRunner 3200 multifunction printer/copier in my office. From day one we've had issues printing PDF's to the machine from a Windows client. The status on the copier displays "Processing" for anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes plus before it will actually print. Even on very small PDF files with no graphics it takes this long.
Our previous support rep recommended that we install UFR (Ultra Fast Rendering) drivers on our Windows clients instead of the PS3 driver. After doing this, we were able to print PDF's normally and without a delay on our XP & Vista workstations.
Now, however, we have upgraded three workstations to Windows 7 and are experiencing the slow PDF printing issue again. I have not been able to find a UFR driver that will work on a Windows 7 workstation, however. I've searched the Canon website top to bottom and have found nothing. Google searches galore returned nada, as well.
Does anyone know of any other solutions or workarounds that will get PDF's printing normally on a Win7 machine? Or of a UFR driver that will work on Win7? We have both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors running, but I'd settle for just getting the 32-bit workstations up to speed if a 64-bit solution isn't available.
Any suggestions, help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!
