Re: Does not print pdf files

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.

Print queue stops document and will not resume


Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

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.

    Hp1020 won't print pdf files

    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.
