Well - essentially I have a network printer on a Std. TCP/IP port which has been working flawlessly for the last 6 months or so. Recently though it's been (randomly) failing when trying to print large documents (in terms of MB/Page count, not physical size). Say for example, I print a 30 page PDF (roughly 150MB in size say), the document spools fine, as I have watched it, and in Event Viewer, it shows it has submitted the job successfully. Right - Windows job complete, at least how I view it.
The printer then just doesn't print it - whatsoever, it doesn't even show any signs of life. It's the same with all document types, PDF, .doc etc. I can print test pages though, and small documents fine.
So, if Windows can spool the document fine, and Event Viewer shows Windows has done it's part of the job successfully - would that straight away indicate a printer hardware fault (memory perhaps), or could there be more to this?
