PDF Printing Problems

If the printer doesn’t print a document, the first thing to do is to double-check whether the connections function properly. So, you should unplug the printer cable from the USB hub and plug it directly on the USB port of your computer before troubleshooting problems related to PDF files. Turn the printer off and reboot it 30 seconds later to retry printing of the PDF file.

Besides, make sure that the driver and software of the printer are current. If not, download the latest printer and Adobe website updates and restore the PC afterward. If, despite trying the above steps, you can not print a PDF document, please follow the steps below to fix the problems with PDF printing.
