All of a sudden I cannot print checks.


Hello there, steven

Thank you for joining us in the QuickBooks Community. First of all, I appreciate you let me know what steps you've tried to fix this issue.

I'd be happy to help share another troubleshooting steps to print the checks in the Pay Bills section. To begin, let's make sure the To be printed option is selected. 

Here's how:

  1. At the top menu, click Vendors then select Pay Bills
  2. At the lower right, double-check if the To be printed radio button is selected (see screenshot below).

If it's not selected, that's the reason why you can't print the checks from the Pay Bills section. If you've already created the bill payment checks, you can delete then recreate them or just print them directly from the Bill Payments section.

Here's how:

  1. At the top menu, click Vendors then select Vendor Center
  2. At the top left, select the Transactions tab.
  3. On the left pane, select Bill Payments.
  4. Find and double-click the payment.
  5. At the top, click the Print icon then select Check.
  6. Enter the Printed Check Number, then click OK.
  7. Click Print

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
