Software issue - .pdf's not printing properly

Our HL2700CN will print word docs fine, but when we try to print .pdf's, the print outs look terrible.


We think it is a software issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

We had the same problem. Ended up using the "print as image" option in Acrobat print dialog, then they came out OK.

When printing from word the paper jams in printer.. works fine in all other programs


I work at a printing center at my college, sometimes this happens to the students that print. When printing it could be the word document itself: the file could be too big, or the printer could be reading the file wrong. Try saving the word document to a PDF (Print, Print as PDF), then try printing it. That way the printer reads it as a sort of image and not a .doc file, or .wrd file.

Printing PDF on 8400 - example 265K PDF created from Acrobat 9 spools over USB over 22Meg and never prints. Any other files, Doc, XLS, we've tested print fine and fast.


I've ran across this a few times and the only thing that ever seemed to help was turning of print spooling so it would print direct to the printer. It ties up the computer while it prints but it does work. Usually in other programs when you see this kind of error the proper printer hasn't been selected or the paper size is wrong or the file being printed is corupt.

Go to Word>>

Type following with Big font size, their respective colour

Secondly, go to Notepad and try printing somthing from that.

This seems like a print driver problem. You may have to get an updated driver for your printer for Msoffice 2007.

Printing black squares in word.doc


It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at www.preclick.com. It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.
