Is that a 70 megabyte scribus document? If it is the printable output  
that might explain your problems. I did a hymnbook in scribus in the  
past, and wanted to print a test file to the printer that I had at the  
time. One particular page had a quite high resolution bitmap on the  
page, and that page choked the printer, whether straight printable  
output, or through a PDF file's output. When I got a newer printer, I  
tried that page again, and had no problems at all. Of course, the newer  
printer has more than 20 times the memory that the older printer  
contained. It might be time to consider a new printer. Although it's  
not the printer that I have (money matters), if you can afford it, I  
would recommend the Xerox Phaser 7700 color laser. They  have one at  
the local Kinkos here, and the prints it puts out make my work look  
like professional magazine pages. It is wonderful.
