Great tip! I checked a few Word documents and found some links outside the text boundaries. I'll give it a try.

a printing one, not a link or display one.

Anyway, just in case it fires off some ideas ...

We found the problem with a large text box in the document that went
over the edge of the page. The original users had put in text boxes to
get text running up the side, and had stretched it too large. This works
in Word but the error did not appear until we tried to print the PDF.

Get back to the original Word document if you can and turn on all text
markers. Then delete or re-size any problem text boxes. The re-create
the PDF.

Hope this helps.
