HP ENVY 4500 does not print a PDF file

I have Win7 HP laptop HP ENVY 4500 all-in-One printer wireless and iMac OS X 10.9.1 desktop. It prints all good document file formats, except a PDF file. When I try to print a page of a PDF doc't, via Adobe Reader (11.0.07), it prints 6 equidistant tiny portions of the original PDF page on a single sheet. All six parties are in the same area of the upper quadrant of the original PDF page. I tried many portrait, landscape and size configurations, but in vain. It will not print PDF of my iMac and PC browsers files. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and its driver a couple of times. It installs OK without error messages, but it will not print PDF. Also, I don't get any error messages when I try to print a PDF file. I don't see any documentation supplied with the printer printer to say that this HP all-in-one cannot print PDF doc'ts, and it seems to me that it would print a PDF file until several weeks ago. Please notify.

I was finally able to print PDF files. But it's been so long ago because it was fixed that I don't even remember what was the solution. But four possibilities come to mind: (1) is of course the "print as image file" option has been activated; (2) re-installed printer driver; (3) re-installed Acrobat Reader and ensured that browser and extensions of processing of s/w, if any, have been correctly selected for my printer. (4) corrected a wrong paper, the type, quality, or size option layout which may have resulted in a page layout or a different format from what should be the 'standard' to a PDF file. Sorry I can't be more specific than that. But if I have to determine exactly what I could do to get PDF printing to work properly, I will go straight to you. BTW, I certainly don't rely on an intermediate file conversion service or s/w to transfer my PDF files to a printable format. I hope this helps.

    Hi jeandiarra1956,

    Thanks for the very quick response.

    I was talking with some of my colleagues and we would like you to try the following steps.  Once you have completed the steps please try again to print from iPhoto.

    (1) Please reset your printing system, I have included a document on how to do it. Please be aware that this reset deletes all print settings and pending print jobs from your Mac.

    (2) in the "printers and scanners' click on the '+' and select 'Add another printer or scanner' options

    (3) select your desire 4500 and at the bottom where it says "USE:" Please change to the Envy of HP Photosmart series.

  • want to 4500: hp envy 4500 does not print

    I just purchased a 4500 desire and implemented successfully, but I can't print anything that is not internal. I can copy, print a page of report and analysis, but I can not print a word document as the screen gets stuck on printing now and for always loads. I have tried both wireless and usb cable. I ran the program doctor's diagnosis and reinstalled the latest hp drivers. I also restarted the spooler. I tried everything I found on these forums, but I can't make it work.


    Lets try to use the generic drivers and see if it helps.

    (if the printer is connected with USB)

    Click START > device and printer > add a printer > add a local printer >

    Select "Use existing Port" then Virtual USB from the drop-down menu, click on NEXT, in the production list, select HP / Hewlett-packard and in the right pane, select Deskjet 6980 and finish the wizard


    (if the printer is networked)

    Click START > device and printer > add a printer > add a local printer > choose "Create a new Port" > type in the printer IP address click NEXT, in the manufacture of the list, select HP / Hewlett-packard and in the right pane, select Deskjet 6980 and finish the wizard

    Now try printing.

  • HP 4500 Envy: Envy 4500 does not print

    I used my desire 4500 for a few months. Mid-printing it stopped printing and now it won't print. I went through all the steps of troubleshooting without result. (I turned the printer off/on power; unplugged power cord, reset printers, etc.) It will still print from my desktop and a laptop, but not my Macbook Air - my main computer. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.


    If you haven't tried it already, it might be useful to restart the router to see if that helps.

  • HP Laserjet pro P1606 does not print some pdf documents

    My HP laserjet P1606 does not print some pdf documents.  It is connected via USB to my imac (OS 10.7.5; Adobe Reader 9.5.5). My wireless HP Photosmart 6520 has no problem printing my pdf docs.   Not sure why some files pdf is able to print on the P1606 and others not.  All solutions?

    Hi @JL_MAC,.

    I understand that you are not able to print all the PDFs of the HP Laserjet P1606dn, but can the Photosmart 6520. I can help you with this.

    Run all the updates to Adobe Reader to see if that helps. The latest version is 11.0.

    It could be a problem with the language of the printer.

    The Laserjet P1606dn printer is failed and the printer Photosmart 6520 PCL3 GUI language.

    I hope this helps.

    Good day!
    Thank you.

  • HP Envy 7645: HP Envy 7645 does not print after installation (Windows 8 64-bit)

    I have a weird problem with the HP Envy 7645. After going through the movements to print anything, documents word to pages web, the printer does not print the document and somehow work not even end in the windows print queue. I ran all the diagnosis of HP and there is no connectivity problem, be it wireless or USB connected. No one else in my family have printing problems (we use XP, use another 8.1 and a mac user). The printer prints a test page and a page of diagnosis of the HP software, but will fail to print a windows test page 8. Also the windows 8 printer troubleshooting tool detects any problems with the printer. I'm a bit of a loss.

    I saw a similar question on these cards with the HP Envy 5530 and wonder if it should be the same solution. However, after watching this Board, it requires the name change of a different .dll extension that I don't see with the 7645, but I was wondering if it could be something similar. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    UPDATE: I solved the problem yesterday, but not by the above method, I had tried earlier. I tried a solution for the 5530 envy and it worked. I completed all the steps, including get adobe flash. Only, I have encountered a problem and has been updated to adobe flash. It would download, but as soon as it starts to install, I get a message: "this user has not sufficiently privleges." If you get this error, I'll post the links I used to solve the problem below the solution. I do not guarantee they will work, but they did for me. If not, just follow the step by step solution below:

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that, before using the links to solve the problem of permission with adobe, I had created another account to administrator in Windows 8 and activate the default Administrator account, which is hidden. None of these solutions had solved the problem, but you can try these first, despite the fact that the difficulty of a temp.




    My problem seems to have resolved itself.

    Thanks for responding.
