Try putting your code in load event:

<script language=javascript>
window.onload = function(){
  window.print();
};
</script>
Answer

You need to make sure the whole web page is loaded in Opera before you call window.print();

So using this may help - not, I am waiting for the page to load AND causing a slight delay, which is a little known fix for some versions of Opera.

Hope it helps.

window.onload = function () {
    window.setTimeout(function () {
        window.print();
    }, 500);
}
