PDFs won't print

I am using an HP Laserjet 2605dtn and for some reason it just refuses to print pdfs. I have downloaded the latest drivers but it still won't play ball. All other documents it prints with no problems at all.

that the printer settings haven't defaulted to the pdf printer (instead of ur normal printer), which sometimes happens.

I have made sure that this is the default printer.

What program are you using to read the pdf's - and does that program need updating perhaps.

Following on from Technotiger`s post - Tell us the Operating System (Vista?) and your default PDF Viewer (Adobe Reader or another program)

I am using Windows XP SP2 and have tried using Adobe Reader versions 6, 7 and 8.

Have you previously been able to print pdf's, if so, perhaps a System Restore back to when you could?

I have been able to print them using other printers but never with the HP 2605dtn.

Hmm, I have had a look via Google, it seems others have the same problem with yours and other similar printers. SO I am afraid I can't suggest a remedy, other than to put the problem to HP's on-line support.

are good.

I thought my printer was goosed, but they told me (owing to the parked position of the cartridge when I lifted the lid in relation to the smiley faces, which I had never noticed before) that my ink cartridge was empty!!

Embarrassingly for me, they were right.

Thanks for that Technotiger/Marko, I will get on to them and see if they can help.

Thanks again.
