How do I deal with the this error message, There was an error opening your printer.
It shows up for one PSD file but not others. Why does the program give me this pop up every time? 
Thanks very much in advance for all your help

Try holding down the space bar when selecting File > Print...

Does the problem go away?

Install the printer with local admin rights (remove PC from the domain, install the printer under the local admin account, re-add to domain) and this should solve the problem.

I have faced this issue earlier .you have to follow these steps in order to resolve this issue:-
  1. Go to Photoshop and click on File;
  2. Click Open and change the file extension from .temp to .psd;
  3. Click Open and then you'll be able to see your unsaved work again;
  4. Save restored corrupted PSD files from the .temp file into .psd on your PC then.
