Mac to Dell 5100cn connectivity issue

By johnbmock ·
I have set up my MacBook Pro HD (2.3 Ghz Intel, 2 gigs ram) to print to our workgroup printer, a Dell 5100cn, as an ip printer. I can connect to the printer, but I can't print anything to it.

Any document I try to print takes 5-10 minutes to spool to the printer's memory and then I get a page printed out with this on it:

ERROR: syntaxerror
OFFENDING COMMAN --nostringval--


/get gstate

and the other page

ERROR: syntaxerror
OFFENDING COMMAN --nostringval--

{/FontType 3 def /ct ShowCharString /ct Type3ShowCharString load def / ct dfSetCacheProc /ct CloneSetCacheProc load def / ct_SyntheticBold false

Both of these errors came back on the same InDesign document I was trying to print. I was trying to print only characters and they were fonts that were installed on my Mac.

I converted the file to a PDF with the same results.

I also can't print from Word.

I do get an error from the print dialog box:

Host did not accept data file (32). And then the dialog box tries to spool the data to the printer again, but this time hangs at 25% indefinitely.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
