PCL X Error - Adobe Reader


Here are the specs of the computer in question.

Make: HP
Model: DX2000 MT
OS: Windows XP
CPU: Intel Celeron
Memory: 256 MB
Hard Drive: 40GB

Everytime it wants to print a .pdf document it comes up with a PCL X error.

Any ideas?

No ThinPrint.

I forgot to add that it can print .pdf documents.

Since I'm the IT Assistant at a Law Firm, they're trying to print off A3 plans using Adobe Reader.

Other documents print correctly, however it's only when trying to print A3 plans it shows that message.

They have another reader and what I'd try next.

FOXIT, I'll try that.

In reply to: Try FOXIT

Thanks Bob for the reply.

I'll give it a try, I hope there's a fix for it somewhere.

It does seem pretty odd.

If you see anything, can you contact me or something?

But I was taking a shot at this error GUESSING what printer you have. The PCL X error on google seemed to point to printer driver settings.

If you want to be contacted when a post is made here, TRACK THIS THREAD.

Sorry, mindgap there.

In reply to: Sorry.

I knew about tracking, don't know what I was going on about with the contacting.

Seeing as tracking will let me know when there's a future update.

Haha, thanks anyway.
