Try to print it as an image.

Another solution is to update the driver:

1. Find your printer model number.

2. Go to the manufacturer website and search drivers or printer drivers.

3. Find the correct driver for your model number,

4. Download and install the printer driver.

5. Restart your computer.

Another solution is to try to open a copy of your file and open it on hard drive and try to print it again.

First of all try to print another PDF file form any site or you’re another PDF file. If another PDF file is printed correctly, then your previous PDF file may be damaged. If a new file is not printing then follow below steps.

2.      After reboot your computers close all of your open application if any application is open automatically during startup.

3.      Now, try to print your PDF file again.

Note: You see your computer has enough free disk space to print PDF file, if it is a large file. The Adobe requires 50% of disk free space of your computer system resource.
