    Will not even print a single page pd file

  • olse1949 Sep 08, 2008

    Attempting to print a PDF file such as a document of a "meal plan" at PSU Altoona Campus, the application is visible on my desktop, but impossible to print. I can envision the document,and when selecting to print, the HP print page does not appear that would permit me to print the document. Checking my printer for any indication that the command to print would show that it was in the process of printing.....However there was nothing showing that the print command had actually been sent to the printer.

    Thanks for the opportunity to get some feedback. Olse!

It sounds like it is a printer memory issue. That printer comes with just 64MB of memory and PDF files are complicated for most printers. Try printing a few pages at a time for that PDF file and see if that works. If so than it is a memory issue.

How do I cancel documents in a queue

Cheers james heron

To cancel a queued document, there are several ways, it is best to go to printing devices and open what is printing the printer you want to cancel, click Cancel and disappear the document.
In many cases this does not help then you click cancel, the document continues to appear, that's when it works best to turn off the computer and turn it on again.
Another thing you can do to disappear a file from the print queue, disconnect the printer's USB cable and connect it again, for it can do so from your computer or from the same printer.

Another way that can work is, turn the printer off and turn it on again, you should always look the team to lose the memory of what is printed, in order to begin again.

Printer prints PDF but pulls page back in a few inches

Try this: Go to print a pdf file by clicking file/print. When the print properties box appears, click on the Advanced button on the bottom. Check the Print as Image box and click OK, then print your pdf file. If it still does not work, update, or delete and reinstall your print driver.

I have tried several times to print a PDF file. The file gets sent to the queue, and then disappears without printing. I would appreciate any help or advice. Thank you.

This most often caused by a postscript error or insufficient memory in the printer.
You could try too see what happens if you instruct acrobat reader to print as image.
This setting is usually found in the printer selection screen under advanced options.
Note this setting is available for windows, for apple I'm not sure this option exists.

Hp officejet pro won't print pdf files

In order to print PDF file format grab CutePDF.
  • Visit . Click "Free Download." A box will appear asking, "Do you want to run or save this file?" Answer with "Save." The download will begin. Download Ghostscript (see link in Resources). Look for "You Can Get the Free GPL Ghostscript 8.15 Here" sentence and click "Here." This download is required for the CutePDF program. Save the GPL Ghostscript file to your desktop.
  • Double click the "CuteWriter" icon on your desktop once your downloads are complete. Click "Next" on the Setup - CutePDF Writer screen. Click "I Accept the Agreement" on the License Agreement screen. Click "Install." The CutePDF setup will run. Click "No" to the CutePDF Writer Setup box that appears next that asks "Would You Like to Download the Converter?" You have already downloaded the converter. Once the setup is complete, a Readme.htm file will appear in your Internet browser. Read this file or print it.
  • Double click the "Converter" icon on your desktop (it will have a black "G" as its icon). Click "Setup" on the right side of the WinZip Self-Extractor converter.exe box. Another box will appear and then disappear. The setup is complete, and CutePDF is ready for use. CutePDF installs itself as a printer, and this allows any Windows program to create a PDF.
  • Open any Windows application like Microsoft Word or Excel. Open any document you would like to convert to a PDF file.

  • Click File > Print. Select "CutePDF Writer" from the Name List in the printer box. Click "Properties." Choose your "Layout" and decided how you want your page to print. Click "Paper / Quality" and "Color."
  • Click Advanced > Page Size. Click "Print Quality" and change the DPI. The bigger the DPI, the larger the file size of the PDF will be. If you are creating a PDF to be emailed, choose 72 DPI or 144 DPI. If you are printing this PDF, choose 300 or 600 DPI. If sending the file to a commercial printer, choose 600 or 1,200 DPI. For most applications, just adjust the DPI setting and leave the other settings alone.

  • Click OK > OK > OK. A "Save As" box will appear. Enter a filename for your PDF file and select the directory you would like to save the file to. Click "Save." Your PDF is done.

    Cannot duplex print pdf files. No problem for over 2 years until now. Word docs OK have tried changing printing settings and default but problem persists. Advice would be really appreciated. Thanks

    Printing PDF files without special software can be a problem, if you print a lot of files of different formats and need to deal with a few printers.

    Total PDF Printer from Coolutils is a program features a lot of printing modes and adjustable parameters that will help to optimize the process of printing PDF files. To save the paper, it offers ability to print PDF files in duplex mode, i.e. print PDF pages from both sides of paper sheet.

    You do not need to turn each sheet by your hands, as the program changes printer settings so that this process is automated.

    Total PDF Printer is a perfect suit for personal or professional use for printing PDF files. It automatically connects to all printers enabled in the system and redirects printing tasks to the trays you specify.

    I can't print pdf files from the internet, I have to "save as"1st

    Sometimes the file name assigned to a pdf is not compatible with our printer's memory. For example, if the file name includes brackets [ ] or other punctuation, or is very long, the printer won't recognize it. One print job that stalls will hold up the entire print queue, so delete your job from the queue.
    First, look at the file name displayed in the print server's list of print jobs. The same file name also appears in the top blue bar of your Acrobat pdf display. Are there brackets, per cent signs, or other punctuation marks in the file name?

    Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of...

    Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
    But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
    1. Printer properties
    2. Print preferences
    3. Default print setup.
    The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
    It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

    If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

    You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

    Good luck :)

    The 1020 Has Known issues printing PDF files. The HP LJ 1020 is a HOST printer with NO SUPPORT for PS (post script) or PLC commands. Most users end up printing the PDFs as images. That was not a solution for us and we trashed our 1020 and went with another brand. Good luck.
