Cannot print pdf file on x1270


If all else prints fine except when printing PDF files, try to update your Adobe Acrobat. Then, after the update is successful, try to print your PDF file again to verify that the problem is fixed.

HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One Printer prints gibberish when printing pdf's


Hp has an excellent online support site, with troubleshooting and articles specific to your model printer. which can be accessed here.
Please see in particular this article relating to pdf printing problems.
Make sure you have the latest version of adobe reader, (x), and make sure you have downloaded and installed the most recent drivers and or software updates for your printer, which are available at the hp site.
Here is a list of search results for pdf printing, but in general I can say that my experience shows pdf printing can be problematic and sometimes difficult to troubleshoot. You can try saving the pdf file as as image and printing the image file, if you have no luck elsewhere...Here is a link from adobe with instructions on how to do so.
.I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Page isnt prining out Have new ink in printer


Hi,

Before you can troubleshoot the problem, determine its cause. Do the following steps in order:
1. Print another PDF, such as the first page of Acrobat Help.
  • If a separate PDF file prints correctly, the PDF that doesn't print correctly could be damaged. See "Can't print a specific PDF file" later in this document.
  • If the separate file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a plain text file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad).
  • If that other type of file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Adobe Reader or Acrobat product. However, the problem could come from Reader or Acrobat interacts with the system. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
  • If that other type of file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDFs. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory. Then turn it back on and print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full or had become corrupt.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer.
  • If the file prints correctly from another computer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Consult your network documentation or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF to another printer.
  • If the file prints correctly to a different printer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the original printer. Communication, hardware, or memory problems can cause this kind of connection problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly. Then run a self-test on the printer to make sure that it's working correctly. Consult your printer documentation for self-test instructions or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Can't print any file from any application" later in this document.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Hello, the printer will not print out forms either from a adobe pdf file or from the internet; it leaves the page blank or just prints out the grids but no text.Please can you help?


Hi. Try turning off the image sharpening in the print settings.
For Windows, open the file and go to File > Print > Preferences/Properties in the Print window> Image Enhancement tab in the Lexmark 4500 Series Printing Preferences > choose None for Image Sharpening. Hit ok. Click Apply to save settings. Hit print to start printing. For Macintosh, open the file > go to File > Print > Print Settings > Advanced Settings > Image Sharpening > adjust setting to None. Try to print. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Prints gibberish


You need to ensure you have the correct drivers for your computer. Adobe uses PostScript drivers to print out .pdf files. Some drivers are Printer Control Language (PCL) and do not work well with .pdf.
