Try the following two steps:
1. Reset Photoshop Preferences
Press and Hold Alt+Ctrl+Shift (windows ) or Opt+Cmd+Shift(Mac) whilst opening Photoshop. The timing of this is a little tricky but if you get it right you will see a prompt to delete current settings. Accept that and new preferences will be created.
If that does not resolve the issue:
2. Uninstall Photoshop and run the cleaner tool before re-installing.
Run the CC Cleaner tool (it works for CS6 also)
Select the Text tool and then start typing.
I've also had a similar problem before. Make sure what you have on your text is final before printing. And then rasterize that text layer.
Then merge all of your layers together if possible, and start printing. That shouldn't give you any errors.
If you're going to merge your Layers always keep a copy of the layered document so you can return to it and make further changes if you need to. Once it's merged that's it, and it's surprising how often you need to make more alterations to your documents.
Thanks for all the replies, tried all the possible steps but no luck so far.
De-installed, ran the CC Cleaner tool, reinstalled CS6 and still getting the same problem as I reported in my original post.
No layers are involved at all in this, I select the Text tool, click on the image involved, even a blank layer, and get the same message.
I'll run through the CC Cleaner routine again in desperation!
Solved the problem. I did a search on the PS Elements forum and found an Adobe staff reply to the same problem on PSE.
Go to C:\Users\ name\appdata\local\adobe\typesupport\CS6 and changed this to CS6-old.
Now it works correctly and the text engine is as it should be.
