Unable to print from CS

I'm using mac and when I try to print from Illustrator CS, a window which shows status and name of documents appears, says 'media out or not loaded correctly'. I saved the document and opened it with preview (application) then it print out fine. I found a person having almost same problem as I do in another website but couldn't find a solution. Is there any way to print straight out from CS?

Samsung SCX-4500W restore wireless printing on cryptic error

For those having trouble wirelessly printing to their Samsung SCX-4500W printer from a Windows computer, I have this "easy" 13-step process that usually fixes my most common printing problem:

The symptom:
You haven't used your printer in a couple of days and have just hit the print button in an application you wish to print a document from. Instead of your printed document gracefully emerging from your printer, a Samsung status window appears on your computer above the task tray, cryptically announcing "The current printer port is not supported for the current printer status". You scratch your head in complete confusion.

The solution:
  1. Go into the room where your printer is. Observe that it has dropped its wifi connection and not reconnected automatically - the blue light indicating wifi is no longer illuminated.
  2. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
  3. Rebooting always causes a blank page to be ejected - how annoying! Open up the tray and reinsert the blank sheet.
  4. Wait for the blue wifi light to come on.
  5. Return to your computer and open the printer job queue window. Locate your document in this window with "Error" status next to it: right-click on it and select restart so its status changes to "Printing".
  6. After a while, notice the status has changed to "Error - Printing" or "Error - Sent to printer". Since restarting the job was not successful, right-click and select cancel. Press the OK button in the confirmation dialog. You may have to do this a second time before the job clears.
  7. Return to the application you printed from and re-print the document.
  8. Double-click on the blue Samsung "S" icon in the task tray. A window titled Samsung SX-4500W Series will appear in the lower right. Observe the status first says "Please wait..." then show the same cryptic message "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Grrrr.
  9. Check if your computer really can access the printer by opening web browser and typing its ip address. For me, it is Alternatively, click the "Printer Setting" button in the window of step 8. Observe that the printer reports it is alive and ready for action. This is good.
  10. Check if any other Samsung software is able to use the printer: Open SmarThru 4 software, select "Scan To", "Folder", then hit "Scan" button. Observe that scanning from the printer works absolutely fine. Close SmarThru. So the problem is just the crappy printer driver.
  11. Close any Samsung windows you have open. Navigate the start menu to Samsung SCX-4500W Series->Maintenance. The installer will run in maintenance mode and find your printer on the network (and show its ip address), as well as an option to use it on "Local Port". Select the printer on network and click Next. Select "Samsung SCX-4500W Series printer driver" to repair and hit Next. The driver will re-install. Click Finish when done.
  12. Return to your application you wish to print from and activate the printing of the document again.
  13. The Samsung status window will once again appear in the lower right proclaiming "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Ignore this stupid message and close the window. Go to the room with your printer and with any luck, you will find your printed document waiting for you!

Once you are well practiced at this, and can fully appreciate how useless Samsung's software developers are, you can just do steps 1,2,3,4, 5, 6,11,12, and 13.

You should update your printers firmware and reload both Mac and windows drivers for the same printer. I look at this as more of a driver problem. Firmware and drivers can be located here. If problem persists, try to approach this instance by using the elimination method. remove pc from network, test with only macs connected. then remove macs and test with only PC connected. then finnaly, install this printer directly to pc and test the performance and then directly on one of the macs and test.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner

To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.

Slow Printing under Adobe CS3 in OS X 10.4 environment

I had the same issue with 3 users and was able to solve it with a really easy fix. Set the dock to hide itself. I know it sounds weird, but there's a new print progress bar added to the CS3 icons, and that seems to be where the problem is caused. I'm assuming you have an Intel Mac?
