When we give a print but signals are going to printer but output nil

First I'm not a printer tech, but I have similar problems with my new wireless Cannon Ink jet printer MG3022 (purchased 2018)
* It takes a lot (I mean a LONG) time for the CPU to process each page to be printed. I believe the printer has to have an image created for each page. Yeah, EACH page! That means if you want 5 copies of the same item. the computer will have to create 5 images and send them wire less to the printer. BUT, it won't print the first page until all the image processing is done. This is a real pain if your in a hurry. Best solution is to print one page, Prof read it (as it may have errors and you have to start all over again.). Once approved and time willing, go ahead and process multiple copies.
* Do Not load up the print queue as this will make the print processing times even worse as it still won't print the first page unless all the processing is done.
* Don't forget to clear the print queue if your cancelling the print as it's taking too long and you walk away from the printer. It will keep processing the images at a later date and slow down the computer as it works on it in the background. Many times I've wondered what slows down the computer only to find 20 pages being process and not properly cancelled from the queue. (mostly kids homework...humm.. if they did not print it. How did they turn it in?)
* Keep an eye on the printer options; Draft mode and Monochrome is the fastest setting on most printers. If this quality is adequate for your use then use it if your hurried for time. (it also saves on ink)
* Wire less printers are finiky about having a good connection. Note that the signals are usually sent to the router and then back to the printer. I have my laptop (Lenovo purchased 2018) right next to the printer but if the router is slow (too many kids on the router) then signals get delayed and sometimes the computer will error on time out for slow connection. Suppositly there is a direct wireless connection but I've found that if the router is down or slow the printer won't work.
* FYI, I had to get a new laptop (this one) in order to get the printer (new cannon) to work as my original Epson printer got a "printer too old" error. (and I had that one for 5 years with refillable ink wells too!) Now stuck with buying new ink packs every month.
* I know this is not a real answer but I hope by keeping the copies to minimum (and using a real copy machine to make copies.). Using the lowest quality print required. This may help you reduce your wait times.

PS on the off chance everything is connected, processed, and printer is fully filled with new ink, cleaned, Head aligned, good to print. Then you may have a bad; Computer(wireless section bad though unlikely), No wireless LAN connection(or wrong LAN system, as office buildings have multiple systems ans lots of printers.), or just a bad printer. Get help from IT tech to identify the clogged line or bad equipment. If your using a home set up, try to delete the printer and reload the driver and install the printer again to the computer and LAN set up.

What does "100 %" stacked mean?

it means that the printing order for the memory for the printer is full
go to control panel , go to printers and hardware , click on printer right click and it will show a section see what is printing
high light each line and delete that takes away the priority of the stack until there is nothing left to print and the printer should again print at the next selection you make
How the program works is this
there is a small memory in the printer and a large one in the pc
when you have data that is to be printed, the pc sends the data until the printer memory is full at which stage the printer starts to print. new data is sent as memory space becomes available until the document is printed
when different data is requested to be printed or there is a hiccup in the process the pc looses the priority in the print list ( page number or new document)and so backs up that memory and becomes blocked
by going into the pc in the printer hard ware and deleting the printing waiting to be processed your are unblocking the process and allowing the pc to again move data to be printed

Why would someone need a paper jogger?

paper joggers are mostly used in places where you would be handling a lot of papers like a printing press and businesses that deal with a lot of paper. If you are say writing a book and have the manuscript on many pages that aren't held together you could use a paper jogger to square off all the pages so they look nicely stacked before you give them to your editor.

Takes 1hr to do 5 copies


From what you describe, I'd be leaning toward too much resolution. Try reducing it.

For example, a copy and print at 150 dpi, is four times faster than the same copy and print at 300 dpi (Horizontal x Vertical resolution). If the settings are at 1200 dpi, yes, the process could become quite slow.

Try it. The difference should be notable and immediate.

Why am I receiving this message?

Not a problem with printer, is more likely the computer, the print driver or the dicument you are trying to print, print a windows test page via printer icon to test, if this works ok it is the document, if it dont then it is either your operating system or driver, reinstall driver to elimate this being the most likly issue, to conform it is not the printer, unplug the usb from it and print a self test, I think it is online held down whilst powering up, but I'm not sure on that, anyway do a local copy or any print from printer operations panel and this will prove to you it is not a printer issue..

stack overflow means the program has encounted an error in the data it is trying to process.

Bizhub 250 slow to print files

When you ask to print the page are you asking for more the one copy? If you are there is a collate check button next to the requested sets box, in the print dialog box. Make sure its not check. Collating the print means your PC sends a copy of the file for each requested copy. IE: you print one page and ask for six copies, your PC sends the file six times, one copy of the file for each print requested.

Also because your printing from a windows application IE: Excel you should be using the PCL print driver as apposed to a PostScript print driver. The time it takes to convert the file into PostScript for the printer to process it is time consuming.

Extremely slow copying

Cartridges may give a very slow printing if internally damaged, or :
When using colored paper in the all-in-one, printing or copying is slow.This issue is a result of the automatic paper type sensor misreading the colored paper as photo paper. The print out takes longer because the unit is printing in Best mode instead of Normal mode.
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
  2. Double-click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is: select Plain Paper . This sets the default paper type setting to Plain Paper.
Hope this helps.
