Until a real solution is found you may save as PDF and print from there.
So is this a problem you are familiar with or one that is common? The printer we are using is something of a rarity. Do I need to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro in order to print to a PDF or is this something offered with Illustrator?
You can save as a PDF directly out of AI and can print from the free Adobe Reader application.

There are many possible printing issues, many of them caused by the use of a non PostScript printer (driver). From the OP I assumed you have printed from earlier versions of Illy; and in that case, this is a different issue.
Saving as PDF bypasses most printer issues. And as Larry said, you do not need Acrobat to use that (temporary) solution.
i have the same problem, but I can't print anything out of AI 4. Not even as a PDF. Amd I can't change the printer. Was exporting it to the hard drive but printing was not good-can't adjust the layout on the page,and weird thing, there was 2 color in the latest thing I designed and it only printed b&w. Customer service told me to go elsewhere (I am being polite here). I have found the only workaround I could do which is save it as a pdf and print from the bridge. I real pain but at least it prints. I am not a computer genius to do all these other workarounds people have suggested. If there is a bette,r easier solution I would love to hear it. I have Mac osx 10.9.
