Why is my HP Designjet z5400 only processing a PDF but will not print it without an error message coming up?


First of all, can your so called pdf open in Adobe Acrobat Reader, if not, then you need to first convert your JPG into a PDF. You need a program to do this. But if you can open it in Reader, then you need to print it from there. Try one of these solutions.

My HP Designjet T790 report "Error 21.2.:13, restart, if problem persists call support" i restarted but still can't print. Can you help me? Thanks


This is a service station error. One of the more common causes I have come across is a piece of paper or foreign object jammed in the service station. It is located on the right hand side of the carriage. Unplug the plotter. Plug it in and the minute that you hear the print head move, unplug the power. Then open the window, move the head out of the way and look for a foreign object stuck in the service station.

Prints PDF documents VERY slowly (4-5) per page


The actual issue you will find that its not so much the actual printing part of the process that is slow, its actually the spooling to the printer that takes the time.
Does your printer support PostScript printing ? (PostScript is a printing & imaging standard used by many printers) To find out if your printer does indeed support this either refer to your manufacturers documentation or perform a test page and look to see if you have a PostScript enabled option.
If your printer does support PostScript, make sure you are using its PostScript printer driver, most of the time we generally use PCL drivers, so simply change this.

Regards....
If you find your printer does not support PostScript there are a few other tweaks we can implement to increase printing speed.

Firstly we can force PDF files to be printed as graphics as opposed to text, to do this launch your chosen PDF viewer, select Print > Advanced > Print as image
Lower the print resolution, if we lower the print resolution most of the time the difference is very small, but it can reduce the actual print size of the document by up to 300%, which can greatly decrease printing times.
Make sure you are using the latest version of any print drivers or your chosen PDF printing program, normally Adobe Acrobat.
If the printer only has a small amount of memory if possible add more, if possible install a PostScript SIMM.
Check the amount of ram your computer currently has, check memory usage from task manager when printing to ascertain usage

When printing large powerpoint presentations half way through it will give a pcl xl error missingdata readimage


too much data or not enough memory in your printer to support the job.

Also possibly corrupted data in your powerpoint doc.

if you are using PCL version of the driver, download and setup the PS (PostScript) driver from HP.

There are conflicts with printing PDF/Powerpoint docs using PCL driver.

let us know if this helps. Another thing you can try if possible, convert the Powerpoint into a PDF file and then try printing, but select "Print as Image" in the Advanced section of the print options.

Pdf file too large: 1-2 pages about 1 MG.


Try and print the document 1 page at a time, upgrade the memory in the printer if you can, and most importantly; make sure that this is not a false error because the PDF requires postscript fonts to be installed you don't have installed on your printer. You can do this as follows.

Their are 3 standards for postscript, go to the manufacturers website and download the newest version of the postscript driver, not PCL. Many printers go nuts if running on an installed PCL driver and asked to print a PDF. If all else fails, this typically gives a lot of false errors.

Problems printing pdf files with an hp officejet pro 8500


You can try installing the PostScript driver rather than the default PCL driver for the printer. You may also have a faulty USB cable which is causing data errors when printing complex jobs such as PDFs.

You probably have Adobe reader which will allow you to read an Adobe document but not write a pdf file. For that you have to buy Adobe Acrobat. There are, however, free packages that will convert a file into pdf format. Try googling for "convert a file into pdf" or something similar.

HP Printer 1320 PCL XL error


hi,


I'd suggest downloading and installing the PS (PostScript) driver from HP here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=410624&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=410622&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

Then use the PS driver when you're printing .pdf files. Use your existing PCL driver when printing all other types.

i hope it would help you...
