Topic: Language Level?

All,

I am still having a problem printing my PDF documents, and I have uncovered a few more details. First, the item I was changing isn’t really postscript, but something called “Language Level”. This setting seemingly changes from printer to printer. I don’t understand what this setting is really used for, but I know if I set it to a lower level than the default, my PDF prints. As you may have read in some of my earlier postings, I only have this problem with a PDF with a graphic within it. For example, on our laser printer the default setting is Language Level 2. When I print on the default setting, I don’t get anything from the printer. When I lower the setting to Language Level 1, I get the document perfectly.

I decided to try a different printer. When I connect to our color laser printer, the default is Language Level 3. When I print the document, I get the document, but I also get an error report from the printer. This report is printed on a second sheet of paper. Below are the details from the report.

ERROR: ioerror
OFFENDING COMMAND: flushfile

STACK:

-filestream-
-filestream-
-savefile-

I am a layman to this; therefore, this error report doesn’t make much sense to me. What I really find interesting is that two filestreams are on the stack. This might be part of the problem, but it doesn’t make sense to me. I don't have a problem when I drop the Language Level.

I am hoping that I am just using a command which has been deprecated, but I thought this error report might spark some insight.

Below is a list of commands I am sending to the PDF:

I also tried moving the graphic command to the front:

q 78 0 0 76 100 600 cm /D#3A#5CTEMP#5CCSG#2EJPG Do Q

Any thoughts?
