only half my pdf prints.

[ Edited ]

 I just installed HP4280, trying to print pdf but it won't print the whole page.  I have tried just printing and using the HP Smart Web Print  -  getting the same result.   Any ideas on how to fix this?   I am  running Windows 7, using dlink shareport to connect to printer.

Thanks.

Re: only half my pdf prints.

thanks for responding.   it is a Deskjet F4280 All-in-One.    It is not just pdfs, trying to print a page (that is supposed to be printable) from a website has the same problem.

I have also tried using SnagIt to copy and then print and have tried pasting into a Word document and printing.  Same thing happens.

So does it basically fail to print any complex pages with graphics?  I would probably try temporarily connecting the printer with USB just to check the printer operation.  If this works fine then I would look into the print server as an area for investigation.
