HP LaserJet 1320 Series Printer - Printing PDF Files from Adobe Acrobat with HP PostScript Universal Print Driver (UPD) Results in No Output or Error Page

Issue

When printing PDF files from Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader to an HP LaserJet 1320 Series Printer using the HP PostScript Universal Print Driver (UPD), the printer may not output anything or it may print an error page Error - your application needs to be configured for printing to a PostScript Language Level 2 printer.

Solution

This information applies to both Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Within Acrobat's Print dialog box, click the Advanced button and choose Language Level 2 under PostScript options. Click OK and OK again to print:
Older HP LaserJet printers support PostScript level-2 commands. The HP PostScript Universal Print Driver defaults to PostScript level-3. While it is possible to change the PostScript Language Level to 2 within the UPD's printer preferences and properties (in the Advanced tab), Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader is a pass-through application, generating its own PostScript commands and bypassing the print driver. Thus, the application would ignore this setting within the driver.
Another potential solution would be to disable PostScript Passthrough within the Device Settings tab of the properties of the UPD PS driver. This would force Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader to rely upon the UPD PS driver for the PostScript commands and would thus recognize a change to PostScript Language Level 2 in the driver properties:
