Why does my printer stop before it's finished?

I am attempting to print large graphic files; 16" x 20", 600dpi 340mb.

After printing about 78% of the image (15.75" of 20") it stops printing, drops to the end of the canvas and prints a small line (1/8") 6.75" long in the bottom left corner.

I'm running Win2K Pro on an AMD Athelon 1.4 with 1,000mgs ram. Page file is set at 1,200mb.

Printer is Epson Stylus 3000. I'm trying to print out of Photoshop 7.0

It does this little trick on both the Epson RIP and the Postscript. However, I also have Adobe Pressready, and it prints perfectly when I use that.

Size of file does make a difference. I can print 11" x 14" or smaller with no problem. It's only when I try to print the large file that this happens.

I desperately need to use the Epson RIP. I lack the ready cash to purchase a better RIP and need access to the color adjustments in the Epson software.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

It may not be able to handle the file, for many reasons. Most likely it's the size -- when you spool printer files that huge, they take up tons and tons and TONS of space and use up ENORMOUS amounts of RAM. Photoshop also uses up tons of disk space. You probably don't have enough free disk space or RAM, or both.  I've had similar things happen. If Pressready works, use that.

Make the color adjustments in Photoshop. I suspect Pressready also has adjustment capabilities -- probably better ones than the Epson RIP has.
