Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 7450 Laser Printer

Open Question

I am unable to print Illustrator CS3 files on my Magicolor 7450

I have just updated my Mac to an iMac and since then I have been unable to print illustrator files from my iMac to my printer. I have a message box come up saying "The PPD file for the current printer does not match the PPD file used by the Print dialog your output  ay be clipped or faint to print properly." Basically nothing prints. I can print Quark files and Photoshop and also Encourage and Word. Any help as this is causing me a nightmare – my old G4 prints to the printer fine.
Any help would be appreciate Jacquie Moore

    Yep, me too, I've got a MacBookPro, with CS3. Every other program works fine, just not Illustrator. I keep having to save my dociments as pdfs and print them thru Preview, which is a pain in the ****. Some people in my office have the same issue and others dont.

    When I go to print, its sends the file, then the printer either says its a calibrating, or just doesn't print it.

SOURCE: Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W -- Only Prints on Reboot!

I've had that problem before too, and found out that there were copies of the printer that had somehow installed themselves on my computer. All I needed to do was to choose to print with "konica minolta copy 1" instead of the one that I *thought* was installed and it worked. I then deleted the original printer and just stuck with the copy.

SOURCE: "Print to File" WTF is this?

put the hammer down and step away from the printer lol. The problem you are having is directly related to the computer not "seeing" or recognizing the the printer. Sure you installed the software and drivers probably not the right ones. With Vista you have to use Vista specific drivers.

The unfortunate thing is that after reviewing your make and model of product at the Konica Minolta global site there are no available Vista Drivers for down load. Check here for your self

This leave only 2 options - contact Konica Customr service and see if there are driver available by some other means ( althought they will prob tell you to download them) or Upgrade to a new printer.

Sorry for your luck :(

SOURCE: I have a problem with the message "Output File name" what should i put?

OK, download the new driver from the website and install. Next, go to control panel and go to printer. Right click on printer and select "properties" Click the tab that says "ports".... uncheck where it says "print to file" and then check the box that says "USB"... this is what i did and it worked. Good luck!

I'm trying to print 11x17 from Illustrator and every time it would only print half of the 11x17. WHY? any help please?

May be you forgot the Page Setup. If it is: open, copy all (ctrl+A then ctrl+C), File|New, set page to 11x17, paste and re-position.
May be Print Setup is incorrectly configured. Check it by activate the Show Page Tilling option on the menu.

Printer keeps processing - nothing happens - no print

Not really sure about Mac, but if this happens on a PC, I would first uninstall the printer (software-wise) then download the latest drivers and install.

Imac / illustrator10

According to something I read in another forum:
Use migration assistant (in utilities) to copy over Illustrator 10 via firewire from your G4 to your imac. This is the only thing that might work without upgrading to a newer version of Illustrator. 

I'm planning on trying it with both Illustrator 10 and Indesign 2.0 - Photoshop 7 won't go at all no matter what one tries according to what I've read. I'll be upgrading to CS3 for Photoshop. No choice.

Won't print when text on the page

Export the page as a jpeg, 150 dpi, high quality, then delete all the items on that page in the indesign document (text & images), then import the jpeg to that page it will fit exactly.
This works most times!
