Two links on the web related to this error sugest to delete the Prefs file (Ctrl+Alt+Shift) just after launching PS. I did it several times, but to no effect. C6 has the latest updates, I have rebooted my PC several times.
Any helpful suggestions?
UPDATE: I did find a workaround, however removing printers and re-installing drivers DID NOT HELP. I was able to bypass the issue by selecting a different printer as my default printer in my control panel. After that I can select my desired printer within Photoshop.
I tried the bypass that he suggested, and while the print dialogue pops up, if I click "print" after selecting my printer, Photoshop crashes. I am able to create a PDF if I have "Adobe PDF" selected as my default printer, but that simply isn't efficient.
This has only been happening for me since the most recent update of Photoshop CC, which definitely makes me lean toward a software problem, not a driver problem.
I'm running Windows 7.
This problem suddenly occured about 24 hours ago. I even reinstalled CS6, ran all the updates, and still the problem exists. Any suggestions?
The ONLY way I have fround around this problem is to go and open up (in Windows and likley MAC) and CHANGE your default printer to Adobe PDF. Then go back into CS6 and change it from PDF (which is now sees) back to the printer you really want.
If you change try and change it to ANY other real printer CS6 does not reconize them. ONLY - it still sees the older printer, thus by choosing PDF first, then open CS6, you can select your new printer to print to use, does this problem go away.
Chris Cox, it isn't acceptable to blame the print driver. Photoshop should have a print mechanism robust enough to deal with such a trivial, common problem.
I can print with Illustrator CC and all other software programs on my Mac.
I've uninstalled my Epson r2400 Drivers, uninstalled everything associated with the printer drivers and reinstalled the new drivers after emptying the trash and restarting the Mac. My problem still persists. It seems to me it is a Photoshop Software problem!
BTW Corel Painter X prints just fine....
good luck all.
Right now many of us cannot, even though we are using current mainstream printers from the top printer manufacturers.
This is not a minor inconvenience its totally debilitating to many of us.
I can accept that drivers may have issues; is Adobe working with the printer OEM's to jointly provide us products that work together? If Adobe is aware newer drivers have introduced new bugs is Adobe working with the OEM's to correct the issue?
Can Adobe tell us which driver versions from which printer OEM's and for which printers have been tested or certified to work?
It builds customer loyalty and satisfaction when a vendor works with customers towards solutions rather than tells us its some other vendors fault. As true as that may be its just annoying and as individual customers we are left helpless.
Having said that the fact remains that most of us can occasionally get the same non-working driver to work by resetting or deleting PS preferences; an explanation for this might help some of us find workarounds. In addition it seems odd to many of us that drivers which fail totally in PS work fine for Lightroom; are we to understand Lightroom is not as capable of printing large images or good color management.
I for one don't expect Adobe to fix drivers but I do expect more. I feel Adobe does not fully understand the issues or the volume, there are threads about this issue all over the web. This is not an update your driver issue, this is a PS suddenly stops working with a driver that was working fine issue. Deleting prefs sometimes works but not always for all people.
As for me I'll be exiting this thread and no longer following, Adobe has nothing to offer and I have got used to printing from Lightroom instead of PS; on the same workstation to the same printer. Its not my preference and I'm left with a very negative feeling regards Adobe.
Ran into this error message today when trying to print from Photoshop CS6 on my Epson R2000 which generally has performed well for me over the years. Generally I print either layered PSD files or flattened files saved as TIFs. Today, departing from this practice, I had saved one of my Photoshop files as a layered TIF. When trying to print from that file I got the error message. After resetting the printer and restarting the computer, I loaded the PSD file and successfully printed my image.
I don't have the knowledge/background to even speculate on a possible explanation, but from a practical viewpoint if you get this error message it may be worth checking whether the problem is confined to certain file types, or even individual files.
