This is usually caused by insufficient memory in the printer itself. Find out if she can print pp 25-47 as a separate job. If so, she can proceed through the whole thing that way.

If, on the other hand, her printer simply hangs on page 25 because of some corrupt or overly complex graphic, try this: Open the PDF in Acrobat and print page 25 (by itself) to a file. Distill that file separately and replace page 25 in the original PDF with the redistilled page. This is definitely NOT a recommended practice (redistilling a PDF), but sometimes in this particular circumstance it's the only thing that works.
