Blank page with an OFFENDING COMMAND at the end of your hard copy of a PDF

Blank page with an OFFENDING COMMAND at the end of your hard copy of a PDF

December 17, 2019

When printing PDFs it's possible to experience a postscript error.  (Postscript is a page description language that allows for on the fly rasterization which interprets text and images as straight lines and curves.)  The first several pages of the print-out may appear normal, but the document can be cut off at the end with missing pages and a final blank page with an odd message at the top left:

 

ERROR: undefined

OFFENDING COMMAND: &-2~

 

STACK:

 

 

When a got this error message at the end of a PDF print-out today (the PDF itself worked normally) I was able to fix this problem and print the full hard copy by accessing the advanced settings for the printer.   Disabling the setting for "PostScript Pass through" (on a Konica Minolta 558) did the trick.
