Hopefully you are running NT 4.0 with all of the updates/patchs installed. If not download the patches. If you are running Postershop 4.2 or earlier upgrade to 4.5. There are a variety of reasons that this error pops up. The most common reason that I have found is a glitch in a scanned image that has been placed in a document. To find out if it is the scanned image, try doing a small print of the scanned image by itself and look for areas in the printed image that may have a line going through it. You may not be able to see a glitch in a scanned image on the monitor, but it will show up on the print.

If that is not the case then try saving or exporting the document as an EPS vs. a PS format.

The postscript driver may be corrupt and might need to be re-installed. If it is the postscript driver what you may find is that it will process smaller (file sizes) files without any problem, but the larger files have problems.

It is difficult to pin point a problem without knowing all of the details such as:

What hardware platform - MAC or PC What software? Illustrator, Quark, Corel, ? What postscript driver? Are there gradient fills, scanned images, lots of text, special effects?

All of the above helps make a good diagnosis! Good Luck!
