Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer has stopped printing .pdf files

I have a printer plugged (via usb port) into my desktop pc (running xp professional) and wirelessly connected to my laptop (running vista home premium) via a home network. It has been working just fine until this morning. I tried to print a .pdf file and it appears as though it is being sent to the printer but when I went into the other room to get the files the printer had not printed them. The printer did print .pdf files on Wednesday which was the last time I had the pc or printer turned on. What has happened and how do I fix this problem? Nothing has been changed on either machine since I used it last on Wednesday. (the printer will print the .pdf file if I copy it to the desktop machine and then try to print it.)
The printer is printing regular word documents with no problems.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Can't print to 1410 after I upgraded to Leopard

I believe I had a similar problem. Try this:
Go to System Preferences > Print & Fax > '+'
Select the Epson 1410 and then under Print Using go to Select a driver to use the Epson Styls Phot 1410 - Gutenprint v5.1.3

I hope it helps.

unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.
