Is it printing your *entire* document and then printing this error at  
the end or does it print this before it gets to the end of the  
document and then not print the rest? I have seen this happen when I  
include a figure (pdf or eps) in the document that the printer is  
having trouble with. When the printer gets to the page with the  
offending figure, it prints out what you have shown above and then  
does not print the rest of the document.
