FC2 with HP DESKJET 870 Problem

I am trying to print the "System Rescue CDRom Manual"
and click on "Download PDF" in middle of page.)

I am using Acrobat5 acroread to display/print it.
I installed the printer using the GNOME print manager, and found
the driver which was listed for this printer. Test pages
print fine. When I print page 5 (per Acrobat numbering,
page 4 by the document numbering, has large font
Chapter 1 at top) the printer stops printing, and the
power and form-feed lights start flashing alternately.

According to what I manage to glean from web searches,
this means that the printer thinks that it has lost
communication with the computer.

I tried selecting "prerender fonts" in the driver,
but that hasn't helped.

Any suggestions or other help?

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
