Trying to print a PDF (not public). Prints a few lines, then ejects the paper, then continues on this pattern forever. Occasionally, after a few trials, it works.
Also, I would gladly welcome any explanation at the highest technical level possible why this happens and if happens on other printers, in terms of protocols, timings, or any other reason?
You are missing: details of any updates or patches on your system
Standard MacOSX, updated to 10.6.8 when it was released. No other additions.
how long this has been
Since I first bought it, but occasionally.
if it was like this out of the box;
No, not immediately, but I can't associate the beginning of the behavior to any operation I took. I don't print often, though.
if another printer works fine
I don't own two printers, nor I plan to buy a new one to check if it works. In any case, printing to pdf works fine.
if this happens with another computer
I can't test this either, but I noticed however that when the printing was successful, the resulting printout had occasional hiccups, like the border of a frame repeated a few lines below, and characters half translated horizontally.
What I don't understand is if this can happen due to the pdf being corrupt, although it shows properly in Preview, and I have no problems in generating a new pdf out of it that looks absolutely fine.
