Ours does this as well, and we're printing to a Xerox 6200 color laser
printer.  I'm sure it's not your deskjet!  Sometimes, if the data files
are very large, it won't print at all, even with multiple tries...  The
workaround for this is to print to a PDF file, then print that directly
to the printer.  That's rather a pain to do, so except forlarge
datasets, we generally just reprint any incomplete printouts.

All the best
