430 prints black bars 1/2 to 1 inch wide randomly across plot

HP Recommended
430 designjet
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

 I am trying to plot a PDF file I received from architect.

When I try to plot it starts to print properly and then injects a random solid black bar across the plot and then resummes plotting.  It then injects a random width at an unprescribed distance down the plot.

when iI open the file it shows abdobe acrobat reader 2 in header.

I can plot other PDF files with no errors.they plot to scale as verified by a scale ruler.

I have tried to adjust all setting on the print screen to no avail.

Plots all files accurately from my softplan design program.

I really need to get this to plot as it is aproject I am starting and need to be able to produce multiple drawing sections as the project proceeds

Could be something in the file. What I do first is open the file in my adobe program and then use the save as from the drop down and save it under a different name and then try to print the newly named file.
