My printer won't print PDF files.

I have HP photosmart c4580 that I am using wireless. It prints word and excel files but won't print PDF files. I hit print and the files disappear.

From Adobe Reader, click File > Print.

Click Advanced.

Check the Print as Image option.

 

Now try printing and check for any change.

No it didn't work.  To go to print, I need to pull up a document to print, then when I press print the document and screen disappear. I can't get o advanced.

Re: My printer won't print PDF files.

I have the same problem with my Photosmart C7280 All In One, in fact since swapping laptops and now using Windows 7, I am continually having printing problems where I have to uninstall and reinstall the online software and drivers (previously used CD for Win XP).  Hitting File > Print doesn't give me the option of Advanced, it just makes the file disappear.

Re: My printer won't print PDF files.

I have the same problem, after just setting up my printer for wireless on new laptop.   Prints wireless from word, excel.  Press print on PDF and screen goes blank (Internet) or file disappears (saved file).  Running windows 7.

Wow Thanks...Your solution check "Print as Image" in Adobe reader solved my problem! I was looking all over the internet for an answer to my problem the last couple weeks and that did it.
