Canon MX922 takes a long time to start printing

I bought this printer over the holidays and the setup was a breeze. All in all I love this printer. I have it on my wired network and its accessible through all gadgets at home and there are plenty of them. Our printing needs are not that great. Occasional homework projects for kids or a copy scan here and there. I have left the printer powerd on and it stays online but what I have noticed is that if I don't print for over a day or two, and then send a job, the printer takes forever to start printing. It looks like it gets the job immediately as the lcd lights up but it takes clost to 5 minutes to process it. In those 5 minutes I keep hearing something going on inside the printer. But once it starts printing it does a great job of keep going. Why does it take so long to start after a few days?

 

I have set it up for primary use from my Windows 10 desktop which is on the wired network as well.

Hello.

 

If the unit has been powered on recently or has been left idle for a while, it will go through a brief warmup process before printing.

 

However, subsequent printouts should come out quickly.

Thanks for the reply. Isn't there a way for the printer to warm up occasionally by itself if not printing for a while? How long it has to stay idle for this warm up process to kick in when a job is sent?

The MX922 is the worst Canon printer I have owned.  It take MINUTES to power on.  I am not a heavy user of this device so it is left off.  But when I turn it on I need wait seeral mintues for it to power on.  It is ridiculous.

I have this exact same problem. The printer just whirrs and clunks and humms for about 5 minutes when I first turn it on and tell it to print. What in the world is it doing that takes so long? Some kind of calibration? Or cleaning ink nozzles?

 

This is always stressful because I am never sure if it is eventually going to start working.

 

So, Canon, is there some firmware fix?

 

It also seems to use a lot of ink to print just a few dozen pages.

 

In the meantime, I'm going to give this printer a mediocre review on Amazon. I had a very reliable eight-year-old HP printer, but HP never updated the software driver to work with my current Macintosh. That is why I got the new Canon. Just because it had software that worked with my current Mac OS.
