OK this one is doing my nut. I have a networked HP LJ1320tn on a W2003 Server which prints PDF's fine however, try printing PDF's from an XP workstation and it hangs up Acrobat.
Have tried both the PCL6 and PS drivers but cannot resolve.
Anyone had this issue?
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.

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.
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.

The standard port settings used when setting up a Printer Port is Port 9100 (TCP) when normally communicating with the Jet direct / LaserJet 4 plus printer. However when using the Emulex Card it s default is Port 2501 (UDP). So within XP change the Port setting to 2501 and it then will communicate correctly.
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.
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.
