Printing Slowdown

Using Lexmark Z12.& Windows XP.
I am experiencing a long delay between pressing Print and the printer actually starting to print.
This has occurred only recently.

As always any suggestions greatly appreciated.

You may may a print spooling problem.
Quick fix: Use System Restore to roll back to when it was normal, or unintall then reinstall the printer.

Thank you for your suggestion. In looking to uninstall I noticed I had two Z12 listed so decided to transfer the default to the unused one.
It seems to have done the trick.

Check the ink and settings.

Thank you for your suggestion.

As you will see, I seem to have solved the problem by changing the Z12 default.
