Hi, I get this message when I try to print a .psd file (I printed this file earlier without any problem on the same computer with the same printer!). The strange thing is that I can have one file open that allows me to print fine and another open that would only return this error. I tried to copy the layers to a new file and save (overwriting the old file) but this didn't work. For me, this had NOTHING to do with printer drivers (re-installed but no improvement) or the preference file (deleted and new one made, once again no improvement). It just seems as thought certain files that have been either created or re-saved in CS4 were corrupt with regard to printing, but fine otherwise.
First update PS CS4 11.0 to 11.0.1
Also try setting the default printer to something other then the printer you use. This has fixed a lot of printing issues. Then when your ready to print select the printer you want to use.
Thanks for your reply dec9 but I downloaded and installed the update and this didn't help.
I also tried to set another printer as my default printer but I still can't print. I get this message instantly when I give the print command.
Thanks a lot!
Go to another photo program like GIMP or Paint Shop Pro X2, open the file and save it as a copy (ensure the file is flattened first). Then go back into Photoshop and give it another try. This has worked for some files in the past.
I don't have GIMP or Paint Shop Pro installed on my computer.
I did print the document by saving it as a PDF and opening it in Adobe Acrobat and printing from there.
I had found the Adobe article too but as you can see, they don't come up with a true solution to this problem (I tried almost every possible solution suggested here).
I suppose this is a bug that can only be fixed by Adobe itself in a new update...
I do would like to thank you for thinking with me!
