This error usually occurs because the document that you are trying to print contains large images that the printer is not able to accommodate in the memory, perhaps due to a mismatched printer setting. It can also occur if you are using an unsupported or embedded font in the document. Regardless of the reason for the error, it can be corrected through a short process.
