Sounds like a tough one, perhaps driver related. Talk to oki about support for adobe cs5? Have you upgraded your operating system too? Some printers spit the dummy trying to separate out spot/pms colours, if you have spots in your job try converting to process.
I just upgraded to the latest OKI drivers PS and PCL. I'm printing in PS mode, as always. Colors are process CMYK. This is very unusual. I am running Vista-64 bit, over 3 years, printer being used for over 2 years. I just started having problems with CS5
Are you opening 'old' CS3 or 4 files in CS5 and trying to print them? I tried resaving and they wouldn't print - had to print from pdf files.
-helpful advice from this forum said to try creating a new document in CS5 and then copy/paste the old doc into it and then try and print. It works for me...
good luck. I HATE printing problems.
I just created a new file, saved as CS5. I then copied the text and design from the old file into the new one. Saved and printed. Same issue. First sheet prints with partial text and full design. Next sheet prints with the stack error, Syntax error binary token Type=138 unexpected error=premature end STACK: (now a list of minus number errors) This is very frustrating. No problems with other programs except CS5 components. Acorbat seems to work fine. I wonder if it could possibly be a MS update that was installed, Vista 64bit, Home Premium
Do you want to tell us about your system, printer and network and any really pertinent info so someone might actually be able to assist you.
Some really good info might help.
Hardware. HP Desktop Vista 64-bit with latest SP. Okidata C6150 directly attached to the Desktop via USB port. Drivers from OKI for PS and PCL are Date Posted: 10/21/2009, Version: PPD 1.0,Language(s): English (US).
I installed the new drivers after I started having the issue. I use the PS Driver to print, not PCL.
So far printing is not working properly with Illustrator CS5 and InDesign CS5. I have to save/print to a PDF file and print from Acrobat 9.
The file prints partially, usually the some of the text is missing but the design portion prints fully. First the partially printed sheet spits out, and then another blank sheet with only the error messages.
Here is the latest error message.
OFFENDING COMMAND: binary token, type=138, unexpected error=premature end
6.23926 and a bunch of these strange numbers
(jari Chocolate Macaroons) THIS IS THE TEXT THAT DIDN'T PRINT ON THE FIRST SHEET. THE FULL WORDING WAS Manjari Chocolate Macaroons, only the Man printed out
If you need more info I can send it.
What happens if you just copy the text "Manjari Chocolate Macaroons" in new document and print, if you still get the error, then post the document in this thread. Also you can try Type > Create Outlines for the text object in the document to find out if the problem is due to Font.
I changed the fonts to outlines and all printed out well from AI. FYI I do not change the fonts to outlines when I save it to a PDF and it prints fine. I have about 3 files experiencing this issue. NOW for the interesting part.
I reinstalled Illustrator CS3. Created a new file, copied all the text and design from the CS5 files. Guess what prints perfectly. NO ERRORS! Apparently it's not my printer.
Go to print
Then in dialog box choose Graphic
Then under Option
in Data Format make sure ASCII is selected and not Binary
I was just using Illustrator CS5 (15.0.2) and I was printing a page using the PostScript3 drivers and I got the following error:
OFFENDING COMMAND: binary token, type=138
I was able to solve the problem with moxie1924's fix above (selecting ASCII and not Binary under Data Fomat). Thanks Moxie!
Like others said, I did not have this problem in other software, just Illustrator CS5.
Is this something Adobe is fixing in an update?
Moxie 1924's fix worked for me as well (selecting ASCII and not Binary under Data Fomat).
