I am trying to print color PDF's on a PCL version of the IP-511. They come out with a dark background and the image isn't right. If it's a black and white PDF, it's prints fine. I tried a new driver and it made it worse. This is also using Adobe Reader 7.0.9 and Windows XP. One of the test files I was using was a color version of the Windows Test Page that was scanned as a color PDF. You think switching to a PS board would solve this?

If the Konica 7165 aint boosted up with a 256mb memory module...the scan option and PDF functions do not work to full potential. I have the name of a great place that has memory for sale for the 7165...same company that sells to Konica minolta....let me know

Since Abobe created both PDF format and Postscript you couldn't go wrong with the PS option and I'd bet a year's wages that it'd cure your PDF printing problem.

(I get paid $2.19 per year):)

But yeah, PostScript will cure your problem.

I finally figured out that they were printing directly from Adobe Indesign and the file size was between 60-150mb. Something about PDF's were messing the margins up, so they had to print directly from Adobe Indesign. I told the customer that she was out of luck if she didn't like the speed. There was nothing anyone could do about printing a file that size.

Also, their IT guy set the printer up as an IPP printer for some odd reason. Set it to LPR and it's working like a charm, still a little slow on the monsterous files, but that's how it is. Thanks for the suggestions.
