C7770B - Trouble Printing PDF files

I've got a PDF file that I cannot seem to print to my 36" HP Plotter (C7770B). When I send the file to the printer from Adobe Acrobat Standard, I get a progress window for about 15-20 minutes. Finally, it disappears but nothing comes out of the printer, nor is there anything in the queue. The map I am trying to print is 36" by 80", and 4MB.

In the printing options, click on the Advanced button and choose the option for "Print as Image".

See if that works...

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, the option to "Print as Image" is not among the choices in my Advanced tab. I've attached a screen shot of my options. Is there another Designjet 500 driver I should use?

The option is not in the printer properties, but in the Adobe print window.

when you first hit print, down the bottom left you should see Printing Tips, and Advanced. That is the one you want.

Acutally you can just about see it on your screen shot...

Did you ever find a resolution to this problem. We continue to experience the same problem from our designjet 500 ps

Thank you in advance
