Printing: Laser printers and Inkjet printers process their information differently. A laser printer, which is also known as a "page printer", takes the information for an entire document all in one gulp. Because of this, it can sometimes have memory problems when it comes to processing and printing that information. This can occur with some Adobe Acrobat PDF documents that are larger in size. An ink jet printer processes the information for a document in sections and prints them out that way, which is why most anything will print with an inkjet.


If you're trying to print an Adobe Acrobat PDF document and your printer just blinks at you, it may be a conflict in the setup of the file. You may be feeding PS level II code to a PS level I printer. Check the Print dialog settings in Acrobat and check `PS level I only'.

Another option you can adjust is the Windows Timeout:
1. Go to Start, Settings, Printers
2. In the Printers window, find the icon for the printer you are using.
3. Click on it with your Right Mouse Button and from the fly-down menu, select Properties.
3. Click the Details tab and increase the Transmission Retry to 999 seconds (or higher).
4. Click Apply, then click OK.
