PDF will not print

I have a 16 page PDF i am trying to print.. I've tried multi printers (all different printers and from 2 other workstations). Windows 7 Pro 64bit is the OS...  Attached is the output of the print job... . Any help with this would be awsome.

I've also turned off the security options in adobe reader XI

Usually printing issues are based on two common problems:
1. Spooling issues (run out of memory etc.)
1. Document rendering issues (font embedded but licensing restrictions prevent it from printing)

First thing to get you out of trouble is to go to Print dialog CTRL+P, click on 'Advanced' and select 'Print as Image'

If it is a Printer issue, it will still not print, but if it is a PDF problem it should spool and print no problem.

If this is an isolated issue just with this PDF this may be a solution, if it happens one more files then it may be worth checking with whoever created the file what his source application and PDF settings are, especially any font or embedded object info and we can diagnose from there.

Did you try printing from a different computer (not printing to a printer on a different computer, but moving the document to a different computer). Does it work on a different computer?  If no, the document may be corrupted. Can you retrieve the document from a backup?

Is the document composed of pure text, or are there images? If images, is your Printer's driver setup to print images or only text?

Just text

So please answer my question above. Just text PDF is zero problem and if the PDF will not print on any computer, then the PDF is corrupted.

I assume at least Adobe version 8 or higher to do the printing.

John... I state what your asking in my original question and also the version of adobe.

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Sorry about the version - I should have gone back to check.

Your question was not abundantly clear on using a different computer. I thought you meant different printer.

So the file is corrupt and needs to be restored from backup or recreated.

Wouldn't a corrupted file show some other sign other than not able to print properly.

Can you maybe attach just a page of the file?

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Hard to say. It might or might not. But almost any PDF that is text and 100% of all PDF's I have tried will print with no issue.  Since the document is a problem on any computer, then it is a bad document.

I can't.. It's a Court Case file.

It is probably secured but that should not cause it not to print. I print secured audit files without issue.

You need to retrieve the document again somehow.

Have you tried setting Acrobat to "Print as image"? In the Print dialogue box, click the Advanced button and select "Print as Image"

Have you tried a different PDF reader?
