My Copy Machine Takes Too Long To Warm Up

The answer has to do with how printers operate.   Slow warming printers are typically the result of the fuser taking its time to heat to manufacturers temperature requirements.  The fuser is used to melt carbon powder onto the printing paper; also explaining the reason why fresh copies come out of the printer feeling warm to the touch.
Fusers that take a while to warm up indicate that it is wearing out.  Sunrise Office Systems recommends that fusers be checked regularly for faulty operation.  Further, if it’s power source is delivering low power, it significantly delays a fuser’s warm-up time.

The Electronic Panel Display Takes Forever to Appear

On a printer, the electronic display might takes a while to appear before you can begin to press commands.  This is caused by the time taken by the printer to make a static charge on the printing paper and the data to be printed. When the charge is made on the printing paper, the toner propels onto to the paper. Slow heating of the fuser slows the melting of toner thus delaying electronic display.

Weak Internet Connection Delays Response Time 


Weak wireless connections for printers may delay the response time. Wrong router configuration settings or poor internet connection affects the consistency of data sent to the printer and therefore a delay or error occur during the response.  A strong internet connection is required in order for a wireless printer to operate effectively.
