We are trying to print a large format 11 X 18 document to the 5000. It is a client project done in Illustrator. It won't print any where. Error message is 79.00.   This is the message from our teacher.  I have seen the 79.00 error before.  I feel certain that it is not a hardware issue alone.  I think it has to do with the graphics.  Since I'm not familiar with Illustrator, do you have any helpful ideas?

Hi,

 A 79 error is a print error not an Illustrator error I think.

What printer are you sending the job to? Are you on a netowrk?

Check the knowledge base on your printer website for 79 errors. That should assist you.

It could be the print driver (PPD) is corrupt which would explain why you can print it on another mac

If it can be done from another Mac then like Bong states it could be a driver problem, but as I stated before it's likely to be a network problem. 79 usually is I recall.

Again, what printer is it please and what type of network? Experts can assist better if we can see the whole picture :)

It is an HP 4550c and it is shared with ip address.  The printer is installed on a Novell Network.

The problem occurred when student changed size of paper and had large graphics.  I'm puzzled as to why the many macs in the room are not having the same issue.  Everyone else is printing.  If it is a driver issue, would they be able to print?
