Am having some issues getting my Phaser 6600 to print multi copies of larger A4 PDFs.
Some docs are 20MB+. The printer accepts the print job but then stops printing after 1 copy.
It takes ages to think about each page, as it does with other docs, which it normally prints through page by slow page and then once a full copy is done it spits out the remaining copies in quick succession.
Any tips? Any driver or setting adjustments that can be made? Or is it just a memory issue?
Any tips gratefully received.

It's a memory issue, best bet is to simply use Print as image
That should make the PS file that gets printed drastically smaller by flattening the pdf and eliminating the unprintable like transparencies.

Many thanks for this. Not tried it on the full multi-copy issue files.
But where tried the results are noticeably washed-out and paler than earlier copies.

That would mean you would need to redesign the file to use this method and have it created with the proper printer color profile.
If at all possible, try saving the file as PDF/x and print that, it should embed the profile and eliminate the transparencies, it is the best method, but since you need paid applications and I don't know what you use, it makes it hard to guide through it.
