Color Laserjet Pro MPF M281fdw prints many documents successfully except when certain images cause it to fail with an 1 page error.   This occurs only on certain documents sent from iOS or Mac via AirPrint, including emails that contain certain images. Examples include printing email confirmations from airlines, turbo tax return copies (stops half way when an image is included), and PDF documents with images.  It seems like a software or driver error.  I have already reset the driver and made sure the latest driver is installed (20200612). 

 

The error page that's printed is as below:

POSTSCRIPT Warning

  Subsystem: PARSER

  Warning: InternalError 00

  File Name: PDFSender_Interp.c

  Line Number: 1789

  Error Information:  Reported by PDL, undefinedfilename

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

What kind of images or documents are you trying to print?

Any file that has a certain PDF will not print and result in this error.   I would say 1/3 of PDFs will not print.   The file that includes the PDF image can be an email, word file, or of course the pdf file sent to the printer directly.  It does not matter if the file is sent from Mac or from iPhone/IPad via Airprint.   If you can email me at tak203@**bleep**, I can send you a sample file that will not print.   Really appreciate your help.

Certain type of PDFs, whether in email, word file or on it's own from Mac or iPhone/iPad over AirPrint.  For example, I just took a screenshot using my Mac (Big Sur 11.6), exported it as pdf on desktop, selected to print, and it will result in the error page printed. @Sandytechy20

Try updating Adobe Reader

Refer to this document to know how.

 

Alternatively, try printing the PDF file as an image. Click here to know how.

 

If the issue persists, reinstall the app.

 

Let me know how it goes.

If this helps, please mark the public post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.

Unfortunately, this happens when printing from iPhone, iPad, and Mac where Adobe is not even installed.  Creating a picture is the only workaround, but it's not practical when we have multiple pages, as it requires multiple jpeg files to be created just to print.  It happens from common software like TurboTax, where on certain pages where there is a pdf image included in the PDF, it will stop printing and ends with this 1789 error page being printed.  Is there any way to revert back to the original firmware as this did not happen when I first bought the printer?  It's hard now to pin point which firmware update this started happening but that's all I can think of.   Thank you for any additional advice you may have.
