Is this a network printer? If so, it sounds like a the size of the spool
file for that printer is too small. Contact system admin to have them
increase the size.

If it's a local printer, then it could be a free disk space issue on the
host machine. Disabling background printing should get around that.

It's not likely to be a printer memory issue unless it's a really old
printer or there are a lot of graphics with complex paths.

Hope this helps.
