PostScript error: typecheck
A PostScript error: typecheck is one of the most common PostScript errors. It signals that the RIP encounters an operand of a wrong type – i.e. an operator expected one type of data and got something else.

Most common causes:

Typecheck errors are usually cause by corrupted data. This may indicate a problem with the printer driver. Try reinstalling it if the error occurs printing from various applications. Check the network and/or server if the error persists.

Try copying and pasting your data to a new document.
Try opening and resaving all images and links.

Offending command “dF3(!2xT” (or other random characters)

If the offending command contains random characters, it may indicate a problem with the communications link or driver. This problem may also occur when PostScript files are transferred from one computer platform to another. Try using an ‘ASCII’ or ‘Text only’ format instead of a binary format when saving.


It's been awhile but what I remember from Nexus is once it throws the VMerror, any errors afterward are not really relevant since the stream is corrupted once it runs out of VM.


I'm kinda flying blind on this, since I have no idea what to expect from Nexus. I still think it's the file. Unfortunately, DHG won't post it, so I can't really help any more than that.

Yes, it could be the file. And probably is.

Hard to tell without something to look at/test.

I know. Thanks, I appreciate it, but because of the whole confidentiality agreement, with it, I can't.

I may have come up with a workaround that I have used in the past where I print it to a raster workflow and then make the PDF from the PSTI file.

That's going to be a huge PDF. Hope you don't need to email it. :laugh:

Haha. I know. Only 150mb going on a disc or FTP so not an issue.

Thanks again.

Doing a run file on the .ai file. Do it all the time without any problem. Tried printing out of .ai to the same workflow too.

Yes, tried a PDF too as well as placing in InDesign and printing. All gave me the same exact errors.

Also tried copying and pasting into a new .ai document as well as changing the name of the file. All came up with the same errors.

Sounds like it's time to delete one image at a time and try to re-rip. Fonts converted to outlines?

Re: Error in import module

Reply #26
Yes, all fonts are outlines. If my workaround didn't work, which it did thankfully, deleting images one at a time was going to be my next step. When I have some time, I am probably going to do that anyway because I would like to get to the root of the problem in case it should happen again.
