imageCLASS MF269dw Problems Printing PDFs


I am attempting to print a PDF from my Macbook, v 13.3.1, to a new MF 269DW VP2 printer. The output is slightly hazy and the fonts are not printing correctly (incorrect spacing with certain characters). The document does print correctly from Microsoft Word for Mac. It did print correctly to my old HP Printer.

I have reinstalled printer and print drivers, attempted to use both versions of "generic" print drivers (postscript and PCL under IPP) available on the mac - none of these options works. I have also wiped the Library files and reinstalled the driver software as indicated in other posts addressing a similar problem.

The fonts used in the pdf document are embedded and standard, Garamond & Times New Roman.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get a PDF to print correctly to this printer?

I was unable to locate any driver issues that would cause the issue that was posted. In this situation, I would have to suggest contacting support over the phone. They can try different printer settings or prints from other programs. They can also test with other documents to see if they can recreate the issue or see what might be causing the problem.
