Could not obtain DC for [PRINTER]. Error code 122

PlanetPress Version:

Watch Log shows:

“Could not obtain DC for [PRINTERNAME]. Error code 122: The data area passed to a system call is too small. with line SelectMedia(8.5,11,’’,’’,0,0,0)
W3001 : Error while executing plugin: EndDoc failed: Error code 6: The handle is invalid.”

This error occurs at least once every day and on various printers (HP, Lexmark, Canon, Brother).

What is DC? And how can I troubleshoot this further?


“DC” mean “Device context”
This type of error is often caused by the Windows drivers themselves.
