I have 2 HP LaserJet 1200 series printers in my office. One for my PC, and one for my secretary's PC. I am having trouble printing PDFs (especially large ones) to my HP LaserJet 1200.

I dont believe it is the printer itself, because i traded it with the secretaries, and she is able to print fine on it from her computer. I have since switched them back again.

It must be some setting on my PC? Or do i need to reinstall Adobe Reader?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What "trouble" are you having? You might also want to edit your question and supply some more details, like which exact Operating System, how you connect the printers, which drivers you have, etc. – slhck Jul 8 '11 at 10:07

If your secretary can print fine (the same document to both printers), then we have obviously isolated the issue to your machine.

I doubt it is Acrobat reader itself, but, it can never hurt to upgrade when having issues like this.

I think the most probable reason is bad printer drivers and I would recommend you try to update these.
