Why does my printer stop before it's finished?
Posted on 2002-05-21
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?
