When I select this printer for output, all seems fine: When I click the Print Settings button in the CS6 print dialog window, I am taken to the HP driver and can make all my selections. But when I come back to the CS6 print dialog window and click Print -- the dialog window closes and nothing goes to the printer.
I can print to my color laser as expected.
System: Win XP SP3
HP DesignJet Z3200 44in Photo (non-Postscript version)
HP driver version 184.108.40.206
One unusual thing about this printer: The driver has a preview function. When I print from Photoshop CS2 (and all other apps), sending a file to the printer launches the preview application. The image is displayed on screen, giving me a final chance to approve or reject it. When I print from CS6, the preview application doesn't launch.
My workaround is to save the file and print it from Photoshop CS2.
I have not checked if the problem goes away if I disable the preview function. Nor have I traced a print job to see when it shows up in the spooler, when the preview application launches -- and if those answers change with CS6. Let me know if you need more information.
Sounds like something is off with the driver.
Try disabling the preview. Also check for driver updates.
And if possible, you probably want to upgrade to Windows 7: XP is barely supported these days.
We're printing almost every day to Z2100 and Z3100 printers here, but don't have a Z3200 to test with.
Hi OC Photoworx,
Have you tried updating the Printer driver yet?
I see an updated version on the HP site:
Release date: 16 Mar 2011
See if downloading that driver can help out!
If not, let us know here!
