I've had a Xerox Phaser printer for many years and it's worked seamlessly with my Macs. I currently have an M1 Mac mini with the current Monterey install. Preview will not print PDFs to this printer. I can print JPEGs from Preview. I can print PDFs from Acrobat Reader. So, it seems to be a problem with Preview. The printer dialog box reports the error:

Stopped - 'Filter' failed, 1 page

I've powered off the printer, unplugged it, rebooted the mini but the problem persists.

Any idea what's going on here?

Sounds like you should give Apple Support a call to see if they can determine why printing .PDFs from Preview is failing on your systems. It does sound like a bug with Preview, since you get the same result from two different computers.
