Unable to start print job.  Is printer available?

Quick Fix in regards to the error 'Unable to start print job. Is printer available?':

Rather than un-install, etc..., all you need to do is change the Comments & Forms drop-down in the Print Dialog window FROM 'Documents & Markup' TO 'Document', and all of your printing woes are resolved. Enjoy and share with others!

    I had the same problem and just found my solution.

     

    Seems that Reader 8 never fully installed or was corrupted during a Reader 9 upgrade and then would not recognize the printers I had configured.  I started the application Reader 8 and a pop-up message stated it was configurating settings then Reader 8 started normally.  After that printing started normally.

     

    To get to Reder 9 I uninstalled Reader 8 via the uninstaller and then manually deleted everything else left.  I restarted the computer and then re-installed Reader 9.  I ran the Reader 9 application and then checked printing and everything worked perfectly.  This was very frustrating, but glad to find a solution that woked.

     

    Bottom-line:  If you recently upgraded to 9.0 and 8.0 is still running, run reader 8 application and then uninstall via the uninstaller and manually describe here:

    Good luck.
