G7020 Printing Delay

New Contributor

So, I thought I did all the research I needed to do to find the printer for me.  I was wrong.


Firstly, this printer (G7020) does not perform duplex scanning (aka double-sided scanning, dual scanning, scanning both sides).  Any post anywhere that says otherwise is completely lying.  I saw them too and fell for it hook, line, and sinker.


Secondly (current post target), I experiencing severe delays every time I try to print a document.  Duplex printing is not the issue.  I cannot tell it to print multiple files back to back.  My settings are: Standard mode, Economy quality, Black ink only or Gray scale because the are invoices for mailing.  I have to actually wait for it to finish printing the first file, wait about 8 sec for a message to pop up saying "print quality may deteriorate", accept that I do in fact want to print black only, and then wait for it to finish printing before I have to do this all over again.  When the reviews said slow printer, I expected it to mean something very different, such as it just takes a while for one page to come one.  I did not expect to literally have to print one page at a time.


Please help me if this is just a simple setting issue.


Thank you!
