Delayed Print Spooling
Posted: 10-06-2006, 12:23 AM
w/Windows XP Pro. When I send a print job to the printer (the 1st one),
spools and prints quickly. Then when I send another print job to the printer,
(the 2nd, 3rd, etc. print job), it is put into the printer queue and then a
long delay occurs. The 1st print job is still in the queue with the status as
"printing" even tho it has finished. It takes approx. 6 minutes for the print
job to be cleared out of queue and then the next job will print. Then we wait
again for the next in queue another 6 minutes.
When I connect the USB cable directly to my laptop. Printing works fine, one
print job after another... smooth as silk.
After many consults with tech at Canon and many uninstalls/re-installs, they
said that this has happened before when there is something in XP Spooling is
messed up. That I should contact MS... but MS won't support because this is
OEM version of XP.
Anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks very much,
