Open Question

Printer says "Error in print queue" while printing pdf, inconsistent issue.

My LaserJet 3390 is having problems printing PDF files. Sometimes when I go to print a PDF, nothing happens with the computer and the printer just says "Error in print queue". I'm on Windows XP Pro. On a side note, this printer has been upgraded to the max with 192MB RAM. I can't figure anything out with the error the printer is giving me, help!

SOURCE: Slow printing of Acrobat pdf files on HP Laserjet 1300

Hey look, sorry for all the BS you've been given. Its an issue here.

How much ram does your laser jet hold right now?

This would be the choke point on an HP laser jet.

A typical PDF file in high res can be many many megabytes in size and the HP Laser treats these documents as an image file, same in true in Windows, but uses local ram not printer ram like an Apple.

So, if you have a 256K chip, its possible, on your printer and the file is 4-6 MBs in size, you could be looking at a 16-20 minute print job.

I'm not familiar with any tricks to get your printer to use local ram as a cache. If you have Boot Camp, you might consider starting that emulator up and printing from that interface. No real hope for a difference but its worth the try.

Hope that give you some real thoughts to chew over.

Regards,
Worldvet

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 1200 prints pdf documents slow

pdf documents are historically slow, they usually depend on how they are created and how many attachments or upgrades have been added to the document. this accounts for some of the variations of speed the documents are printed.

SOURCE: hp laserjet 3600 PCL XL error when printing a PDF

This is a known issue with 'host-based' printers like the 3600. You need the PCL5 driver, which this printer will not work with. You need a different printer, such as the HP 3520.

This page will explain it all.

HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    49.2f9d error hp laserjet 3005dn how to solve the problem


    Most times a 49.xxxx error on an HP printer is caused by either the print driver, firmware or the print job itself.

    If it happens when printing a PDF file try sending the file to the printer as an image.

    Upgrade the print driver and the firmware.

    You may need to disconnect the printer from the pc or network, power it off and pull the plug for a couple of minutes to clear the error.
    If it's a network printer it would be a good idea to check the printer queue for any jobs still in it and delete them before powering the printer up again.

    Turn the printer off for a few minutes and then back on. If that does not fix the problem, try to have the print queue cleared and tray again. Most of the time it's a PDF file that causes this problem. If that does not fix it, it may need a new Jetdirect card.

    If you are using a PS (post script) print driver, delete it and install the PCL driver (PCL5 or PCL6 if available). May help, not positive. I have seen lots of pdf printing problems with PS or incorrect model drivers.

    When printing .pdf's to HP 8500N ..I get a stackdump sse more inf


    I find most PDF printing issues are due to the print Driver. Your print driver should be a Post Script driver they offer the best support for PDF files.

    The issue your having is most likely due to the print driver. First step would be to replace your driver.

    Print the document again.

    If it does the same thing, then it could be caused by the actual PDF file your printing.

    Print other PDF documents does it do this with all PDF's?

    If so your Acrobat Software has an issue. Reinstall Acrobat.

    Print PDF's again.

    If the problem remains then it becomes a issue most likely caused by your Operating Sys of your computer.

    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.
