color laserjet pro MFP M477fdw printing very slow

color laserjet pro MFP M477fdw
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I bought a color laserjet pro MFP M477fdw around 2 months ago and from the beginning every print needs very long time to come out. For PDFs around 10 minutes and for pictures directly from Photoshop or Preview it takes sometimes more then 20 minutes. It seems the computer is sending every pixel separate to the printer. Printer response never before 5-7 minutes after clicking print button.
I am not printing much, but every time I do it is so annoying.

It is only a stupid fix, but if you power the printer OFF and ON, the document will probably print.

Until the next time it delays.

Thank you for that suggestion. This helps sometimes but not always. A sustainable fix would be good. It might be the driver. I always had good experiences with HP but I am not very happy with this purchase.

Has anyone had any luck fixing this issue?  My printer is doing the same thing - it takes about 4 hours to print 60 single sided pages!

No luck so far. Turning off and on works for once, but is not a satisfying and sustainable solution.

I recently purchased a HP Color Laser Jet Pro MFP M477fdw and my printer takes forever to print. I am getting ready to send back. Does anybody have the fix for this problem? Would appreciate. Thanks

We're having the same issue here.  Simple PDF's are taking way too long to print.  Looking for a fix/recommendation.  Please advise.

Why when you scan on MFP M477fdw the image is not centered? Very aggravating.

Hi, I am having the same problem. Powerpoint presentations, PDFs and sometimes Excel takes too long to print.

Hope HP can do something for us!
