Sometimes, i can't print pdf file to HP 3600 color laser printer from my Mac O/S.

From time to time, i could not print from my adobe reader on my Mac compter. The print queue just stops there.

Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

Can't say for sure. I have had similar problems printing large pdf files to a Brother networked laser printer, but could print the same file to an inkjet printer, so I presumed the problem is that there was insufficient memory in the Brother (but it has only 8 Megs of memory). The other alternative is that the Mac is choking on trying to convert the PDF file to postscript to send to the network printer.

Try looking at the logs in Console.app found in the applications/utilities folder to see if there are any clues there.

Possibly your printer does not have enough memory for large pdf files. What model printer do you have?

I checked the printer manual, it has a 32 MB ram in it, i think it's large enough for an ordinary file. Is this the real problem?

Do you have any other idea?

Thank you.
