I print maps from a remote printer. The maps are sent to me on Adobe Reader PDF. One or two maps will print fabulously and then the next one will abort after printing only the first inch onto the page. Doesn't seem to make any difference with the amount of graphics on the page because I have printed out maps with a lot more graphics than those that abort the print.
Only seems to be a problem with Adobe Reader PDF.
Hope you can help me

Re: Printer Aborts during printing
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

The file you sent to printer is broken/damaged. Clean out the print queue. Draw the network plug off the printer. Reboot printer.
It may also be a broken pdf by Adobe Acrobat. Use another for instance Foxit Reader and try to print out by that program.
get rid of adobe reader and try foxit pdf reader instead. thats my ideal reader and print from program. or google free pdf to print software..or if you dont mind pirated software a link to foxit here no bugs ,viruses, surveys.. its the one i use. i'm not promoting piracy. but i do believe all the on the internet should be free. owe internet providers should pay not the users. https://www.4shared.com/rar/DfVxVnNkca/Foxit_Advanced_PDF_Editor.html
Adobe PDF reader tends to print webdings/wingdings in its version 8 incarnation. Download FOXIT reader free from filehippo.com and try to print your document from that instead of Adobe. This nearly always fixes the problem. antosarmy
Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes. But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options: 1. Printer properties 2. Print preferences 3. Default print setup. The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different). It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.
If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.
You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.
Hi - I had a similar problem except my Brother printer wouldn't print any PDFs. I had Adobe Reader 11 installed at the time. I uninstalled then reinstalled a previous version - Adobe Reader 9 and that worked a treat!
A customer called me with the same msg. Let me explain first what the problem was..they had a Graphic PDF that on the HD was 20 MB but when extracted was well over 200 MB..first I had thought the pdf was exeeding the Printers memory but after testing it was not. The customer was printing the document using adobe PRO I had him print the document in reader 8.1 and made sure the print as image under advanced was selected and the document printed..
