Postscript Print error (ERROR: rangecheck; OFFENDING COMMAND: filter) - Adobe Acrobat Windows

We are attempting to print off some rather large image files on a Xerox 340 and an HP Laserjet 4MV printer via Adobe Acrobat 6. Smaller similar files print fine, but when we try to print some of the larger files we get a sheet with the following printed instead of the image: ------------------------------------------------ ERROR: rangecheck OFFENDING COMMAND: filter STACK: /CCITTFaxDecode -dictionary- -filestream- -filestream- -mark- /_Filters [1.0 0.0 ] /Decode 1 /BitsPerComponent [25386.0 0.0 0.0 -6552.0 0.0 6552.0 ] /ImageMatrix 6552 /Height 25386 /Width 1 /ImageType -mark- -savelevel- ---------------------------------------------------- From searching the Adobe site, it sounds like the "ERROR: rangecheck" ...

    Default Postscript Print error (ERROR: rangecheck; OFFENDING COMMAND: filter)

    We are attempting to print off some rather large image files on a Xerox 340 and an HP Laserjet 4MV printer via Adobe Acrobat 6. Smaller similar files print fine, but when we try to print some of the larger files we get a sheet with the following printed instead of the image:

    ------------------------------------------------

    OFFENDING COMMAND: filter

    STACK:

    From searching the Adobe site, it sounds like the "ERROR: rangecheck" indicates there is a problem with "unintelligible PostScript code", however I cannot find any reference to what "OFFENDING COMMAND: filter" means or how to fix this problem. If anyone has any information or suggestions, I would love to hear from you.

    Thanks

    Looks like the rip on your pritners simply can't deal with the ps date it's being send.

    rangecheck noprmally means that a value is too large for the rip toohandle:

    Postscript errors with an offending command "filter'" have something to do with the filters that are used within a RIP to handle various data formats. In all cases I ever read about or encountered, problems decompressing images lead to "filter" errors.

    See if you can print these files when selecting print as image, found under the advanced print options.
