I am trying to print a file on my HP Photosmart 2575 + Ubuntu 10.04
This could very well be a hardware error because the printer behaves weird on windows too!
Anyway, it stops randomly when printing things, however always on the same place. For example this
file. It always stops after the third page (printing reverse, so 3rd from the last).
This is the (debug enabled) logs from /var/log/cups/error_log:
line 114: start of page 1
line 230: start of page 2
line 359: start of page 3
line 488: start of page 4
line 621: start of page 5
So, it sends 5 pages, but prints only 3...
But just before page 5, line 617:
D [16/May/2010:18:04:17 +0200] PID 11786 (/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp) stopped with status 4!
D [16/May/2010:18:04:17 +0200] [Job 38] prnt/backend/hp.c 625: ERROR: 5021 device communication error!
E [16/May/2010:18:04:18 +0200] PID 11785 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups) crashed on signal 13!
D [16/May/2010:18:04:18 +0200] PID 11784 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/pdftoraster) stopped with status 1!
This doesn't say much... I've googled the error code but I couldn't find any relevant info.
At this point I'm stuck... Is this a bug in cups/hplip or is my printer broken?
