Will not print pdf files

When I try to print a pdf file - even ones that have printed many times in the past - it prints one line then shoots out 4 blank pages and is done. I have restarted both computer and printer 2x and tried old pdf as well as new one.

Cannot print pdf file on x1270

If all else prints fine except when printing PDF files, try to update your Adobe Acrobat. Then, after the update is successful, try to print your PDF file again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP780. It won't print except

If you can print the nozzle test then that proves most of the electronics, it could be the driver is screwed.
Since you can get something out that is intelligent e.g. the larger font lettering then it is processing the file sent to it.
By that I mean rasterising it, converting it to dots of ink, so it can print onto the page as the heads moves back and forth.
Why not try another computer and connect your printer to that one, or try a different file, or even send it a file you've printed successfully in the past before you started to have this problem.

Printer LCD says Cartridge Problem - Tri-Color. Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot.

Before you can troubleshoot the problem, you need to determine its cause.
To determine the cause of the printing problem:
1. Print another PDF file, such as the first page of Acrobat Help:
-- If that file prints correctly, the PDF file that doesn't print correctly may be damaged. See "Resolve problems printing a specific PDF file from an Acrobat product" in this document.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a .txt file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad):
-- If that file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Acrobat product. However, the way Acrobat interacts with the system may affect printing performance. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDF files. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF file:
-- If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory, and then turn it back on and print a PDF file:
-- If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer:
-- If the file prints correctly, the computer you first tried to print from may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Contact your network administrator or consult your network documentation.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF file to another printer:
-- If the file prints correctly, the computer you first tried to print from may be unable to connect to the original printer because of a communication, hardware, or memory problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly, and then run a self-test on it to make sure that it's working correctly. For instructions, see the documentation that came with the printer. You may want to contact your network administrator for assistance.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Resolve problems printing any file from any application" in this document.
you can try these option and then try to resolve them and you can find the solution on follwing link==

Won's print pdf files

Trouble with the HP Laserjet printed output may be solved by using the following settings (or similarly named ones): "Use raster Graphics" (instead of "Use vector graphics"). This may fix the problem of "reversed" text (white on black background) not printing, as well as other problems. "Download TrueType Fonts as bitmap soft fonts" (select "bitmap" instead of "outline" or "graphics"). This may remove the overlapping of text on the printed document. "Graphics dithering" select "coarse" or "fine" (instead of "none"). This selection may improve the quality of images contained in the document. You can find all these settings in your printer properties. Go to File, Print, click Preferences, in Printing Preferences, click one by one all the top options, and change one of the top solutions, one at the time, checking your printing output. Always check if you have the latest version of Adobe Reader Program. If not download the latest version from Adobe, it's free. Is this the first time that you have the problem? or with the same printer (HP 4si), did you were able to print PDF files in the past?
