I have an Epson R3000 that I've used sporadically over the past few months (got busy and didn't have much time for prints). I'm making some prints now for a project, and the R3000 is taking a long time to print. More specifically, it takes a long time to *start* printing once the command is sent from the computer. I hear all kinds of clicking and whirring noises as it goes through prep; this can take as long as 2-3 minutes. I used to associate that with maybe the first time I print after switching from matte to photo black, but it's doing that regularly now.
Once it actually starts printing, it prints well and at a normal speed. It's just the incredibly long "prep" period that has me scratching my head.
Is this normal? If not, what might be causing the problem?
