Hello, Leroy! Don't be upset. You may be suffered from corrupt of your document as well as your print option may be damaged. In case of your PC's virus affection can lead this type of issue. After all, you have to scan your PC and check the plug of your printer. I think you will be able to identify issue. It's not critical issue. Try it!

Hello Leroy

There are a lot of issues that cause printing errors in Microsoft word.   Printing errors are caused by damaged documents or damaged content in documents, the Word program itself, the printer driver, the Windows operating system, connectivity or hardware.  To determine the cause of your problem would be very technical for person with no knowledge about the mentioned causes. 

However, please try the following as your first step in solving your problem.  Sometimes, this may solve your problem especially if the cause is memory related:

1.     Save your document first and close the Microsoft Word program.

2.     Restart your computer and after restarting, run the Microsoft Word program.  As much as possible don’t run any other programs.

3.     Open your document and try printing again.
Before printing, make sure that your printer is connected to your PC with the power on and the printer that you are sending your document to be printed is the one selected as your printer device.  Also check if your printer has a “Ready” status on the Device and Printers on the Control Panel, otherwise you have to resolve issues on connectivity.

To avoid the error follow the instructions given below.

First, close MS Word and open it again. You don't have to open a document. Just go to the Tools/Options and choose Print and uncheck "Background Printing" then click the OK button.

Close MS Word and browse the file you want to print by double-clicking on the file. Now try to print the file.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you.

If you are trying to print a document in Microsoft Office Word, make sure the document is saved first. Once the document is saved, turn on your printer and then press CTRL + P in Microsoft Office Word to bring up the print dialog. In the print dialog, select your printer from the “Printer” dropdown list.

If you can’t see your printer from the list, uninstall and reinstall your printer software. But if you still can’t print even if you selected your printer from the list, make sure the printer is connected properly to your computer’s USB port. Try transferring the cable to another USB port and try printing again. If the problem continues, try doing a test print with your printer.

Refer to your printer’s manual on how to perform a test print.
