Hi and welcome to the forum!

Try to reset your OpenOffice user profile. It may be needed so that it recognizes again your printer.
As a workaround, you can export in PDF first and then print that PDF but it does not fix the issue at all.
AOO 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

Did you close AOO and re-start it after installing the printer?

Re-boot - does that fix it?
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
