Canon iR Advance C5051 intermittently print jobs are timing out

Canon iR Advance C5051 print jobs are intermittently timing out, is mapped 'local', and seems to be specific to .pdf files. Anybody ran across this, considering this is a relatively new copier?

Which printer drivers are you using?
UFRII, PS, PCL, etc.

What do you mean local, do you have a Parallel/USB connection into the printer?
Or is it using a locally configured TCP/IP port?  Does the timeout relate to the size of the document you are printing. i.e. your printer configuration may be to either start immediately or spool all prior to sending.
i.e. if you have a 2 page pdf, it prints, if you have a 30 page pdf it runs into this issue. Does it occur if you do two sided printing versus a single side?

I was able to finally see a problem with an ip address conflict. The machine was manually assigned an IP by the printer tech, while DHCP simultaneously assumed the same IP address to a mobile device on the network. This was causing the printer to hang jobs intermittenly while the mobile device was in use.

I would say I see this quite often, and then it's not related to ip adress conflicts.
It is settings in Adobe Reader, try, when in the File -> Print section, press Advanced and then select "Send by Page" or "Print as Image".

This is usually caused by very large spool files.

A PDF can be 5 mb in size on the desktop, while in spooled format it can be 50 gb.
