Print Checks stopped working

I entered checks into Write Checks but when I go to Print Checks it says "There are no checks to print". I have done it exactly this way for a year now with no issue.

Print Checks stopped working

Hello JennyTown,


There are different factors why we encounter this error. It could be:
     • The connection between the computer and the printer is unstable. 
     • The program or file is damaged.


Let's do a few troubleshooting steps to get rid of the error and print the checks. We can verify if the Print Later box is checked in the Write Checks transaction first. If not, mark a check on it. Then, Save & Close and try to print the checks again. 


If the error still shows, let's update your QuickBooks to the latest release. After, install the PDF repair tool. You can follow Solution 1 in this article: Troubleshoot PDF And Print Problems With QuickBooks Desktop.


If you need more troubleshooting steps to fix this, you can follow Solution 2 and 3.

You can always get back to me if you have more questions.
