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 4.1.4 on Xubuntu 17.10, (Artful Aardvark) and 4.1.3 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 4.1.4, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the up to date Writer guide for information. Click the Help button on a pop-up window for extensive help on that function.
