Color image CLASS MF642Cdw slow and prints one file at a time

New Contributor



I am using it for my home-based business. I have a Brother printer black and white printer. And Epson ink printer for colour printing. Last year, I decided to buy the Color image CLASS MF642Cdw. I am happy with the scanning speed but the printing sucks. It's very slow in response and prints one file at I time. If I have 5 pdf files with 1 document page only and print them. I have to wait until the page is printed. Then you can command print on the next file. The file will be lost in the printing job. Just soo frustrating.  


Hope this can be resolved soon.


Thank you.
