Problems Printing PostScript Data

Problem:

The printer only prints text, no graphics. The text looks as follows:

%!PS-ADOBE-1.0

%%Creator: SAP-Strukturgrafik

%%Title:

%%Pages:

%%DocumentFonts: Courier, Helvetica, Times-Roman

%%PrintMode:

%%EndComments

Solution:

In this case, your printer is printing the PostScript data directly, and cannot interpret it. The printer must be PostScript-compatible! Check that this is the case and that it is properly installed. See General Hints for details.

Problem:

No reaction from the printer.

Solution:

Check that the printer is properly installed and connected. See General Hints for details.

Problem:

There is a reaction from the printer at the start of output, but no printout.

Solution:

The data may have been distorted during the transport and cannot be correctly interpreted. See General Hints for details.

Problem:

The message "Output unit cannot be opened" appeared.

Solution:

Either:

  • The system cannot locate the device where you sent the print request.

You have either entered a device that does not exist.

  • The system cannot open the path or file you entered.

You have entered an incorrect path or filename.

The system displays the device or path you entered in the brackets <...>. Check that the entry is correct.
