This is a bit odd, I have downloaded <peter's wiring diagrams from the NE Noggin section, and although I can see them on the screen, they won't print. Ican print other stuff from this same laptop, so I know my equipment works . I just get a message " an unknown error occurred". Could this be because they are in pdf format? Using Firefox on W10 with an HP desktop 5000 printer.

My printer does not like being called the wrong thing - it comes up on my pc with the same number but with slightly different names ie MG5700 series, MG5700 series WS, and Adobe to name just three. Different programs will print under the different names and if I delete one it just comes back. Have you tried print screen. If you get stuck I can send you the drawing you want directly to see if its the download that is causing the problem.

Can it print other PDFs? If so, then they ought to be ok?

Surprise,surprise, today it works. The two halves are not quite the same scale, but I can plastify them back to back. Thanks for your replies - Peter, I wouldn't dream of calling your printer nasty names! :D
