Re: HP Laserjet 1320 - Acrobat problem in XP

OK, have this printer at work, it is pretty good, not top of the line but economical. Had an issue with PDF files printing VERY VERY SLOWLY from my XP machine. I spent probably a total of 3 hours troubleshooting, and figured out the following...

Open a PDF doc, and when you go to print it, make sure under Advanced that the box beside print as image is NOT marked. This slows down the printing time A LOT. Some printers need to have the "print as image" box checked - we have a large all in one machine that will not print PDFs unless the box is checked. But not this monster... I also had to reinstall my driver and use the PCL6 driver.... hope this helps anyone that may be pulling their hair out over this.

My hp laserjet 1320 printing is printing too slow

If you're running a Mac, when you try to install the LaserJet 1320, it may suggest that you use the driver set for "HP LaserJet 1320 Foomatic/pxlmono." Do not use those settings. I had to reinstall my 1320 recently and since it said that was the recommended choice, I selected it. If I printed just text, it worked fine, but even a tiny 50KB image would take 5 minutes to print. When I reinstalled it again, I selected the option "HP LaserJet 1320 series," and everything works just fine now.

If you are printing PDF coupons, that is probably the case, you need to upgrade the memory on the printer if you want faster printing on those types of documents.

My HP 3015P will no longer print PDF files. This is a new issue. Anyone have a solution?

I'm having the same problem with three networked P3015 printers on a Windows 2003 server. They stopped printing PDF files last week. The universal PS driver from HP works, but it's a pretty ugly solution. I'd like to know why the PCL driver just stopped working.
Btw, we're printing from Acrobat 9.4.2. Word, Excel, and other office printing is fine still.

Printing problem (local and network) only with pdf

PDF files are designed to be small on the computer and are uncompressed when sent to the printer. The size of the PDF is filling up the memory on the print server causing it to crash.

make sure you have the latest printer drivers.

heres a work around if the drivers didn't fix it. check "print as an image" from within printing options in Adobe Acrobat (you gotta go to "advanced" to find that check box), and then it works fine.

My hp 1320 prints only one copy

Windows may have eaten its baby again- that is, the driver for that printer.
Open the Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes, delete any listing for that model of printer, make sure the printer is on and connected, then reboot your system. This will force Win to 'find' the printer and install an uncorrupted driver for it.

HP 1320 duplex printing paper jam

Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.

Not working on window 2003 server as a network printer

I have had a similar issue with both laserjet 3005N and 1320N machines setup as network printers on a windows 2003 print server. Both machines install correctly and print test pages but once you push to much of a print job to it (in my case it was a 12mb pdf file) the printer stops printing and never prints again for some reason. After a quick reboot a test page will print but what gives?? Buffer issues? Not enough ram? None of this makes sense since the printer displays nothing and just stops printNo test pages or anything. I tried re-installing it and rebooting it. Nothing.
