Question about HP LaserJet 4si Printer

Won's print pdf files

If printing a regular text file, I have no issues. However, in trying to print a pdf file that has a picture on it, the entire page comes out pitch black. Any ideas?

    Well, I tried all that, and nothing. Then I noticed that the entire time, I had "Print color as black" selected. I hadn't payed attention as the page was writing with black outline sketches around it. I tried printing with that deselected and it printed fine.

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?

How to solve the problem of undesired changing size of printing only in PDF file formats?


If you're saying this happens to PDF's you download from web sites the only thing I can suggest is to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Acrobat, as something has gone horribly wrong with it. PDF stands for portable document format, it's sole purpose is to transmit documents in a way that always prints the same. If it's not doing that, it's broken.

If these are PDF's you are creating, by "printing" to a virtual printer that generates PDF, there's some issue with that virtual printer software's settings. Without knowing what it is, I couldn't guess. Try PDFMachine by Broadbear Software, it's excellent.

Unable to print text documents


Some times image/picture files are very big files. That big size, in mega-bytes, some times conflicts with your amount of available memory. It could effect the print que or ram. Try running the file through a picture editing program edit the files then rename and save them. You can check the file size prior and then after you run the file through the program. If the file size is lowered it should print.
