Hardware :: Decent Printer Compatible For Macbook Pro

Dec 8, 2009

I'm looking for advice on buying a decent mid-range printer for my Mac. Ideally I'd like it to be wireless. I live in the UK & am looking to spend up to ?150. It would predominantly be used for printing documents. priorities are:

-Wifi / wireless compatibility
-efficiency of cartridges / price of refills
-printing, possibly some photocopying, but not essential
-occasional use for printing photos (again not huge priority)

Mac Mini :: Connect To An AirPrint Compatible Printer?

Jun 11, 2012

I'm new to MAC and have a problem connecting my network printer to my MacMini: 

Hardware:

1) Intel Mac Mini

2) Printer: HP laserjet pro 100 color mfp m175nw, WLAN switched off, connected via Ethernet to the same network as 1) and 3)

3) Windows PC  

Problem:

I can't discover the printer from my MAC Mini. However, I can connect indirectly via the Windows PC which is sharing the printer resource in the network. 

Question:

Is there a way to directly connect to the printer via Ethernet, so that I can print with my Windows PC switched off?  

P.S: I can print with my iPAD connected via an AirPort extreme to the same Ethernet network.

Info:
Mac mini

Hardware :: Good Small Printer Compatible With MacBook Pro?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm planning on buying a new Macbook Pro and want to buy a printer to go with it. I know it sounds crazy but I've never had a printer before. I also know you can get a printer "free" basically with the purchase, but I can easily sell that one on craigslist or ebay to get the one that will be best for me. Here's what I need: my computer desk is very small and I need a physically small printer. I don't want a big old lunk of junk!

I'd rather spend as little as possible, but I'm willing to pay a little more (up to like $150 I guess) for a better one.I don't know much about tech stuff, so it needs to be one that's easy to hook up with my Macbook Pro and maybe hopefully even work wirelessly. I prefer it to print colour as well and photos, scan and make copies if possible (not sure if that stuff always comes now). Basically all the normal extras I guess.

Hardware :: Unable To Install Drivers For Printer / Samsung CLX-3160fn Printer

Oct 29, 2010

Hi, my brand new iMac 21.5" (just 2 weeks old) does not have the appropriate driver for my printer. My printer is a Samsung CLX-3160fn. The iMac has lots of other Samsung drivers, including one that's close (for the 3170 series), but the close one does not work.

Went online to search for driver but was not able to find one for Mac. Does this mean my printer is just not compatible with my iMac?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: HP CM1312nfi Printer - Scan Not Working & Printer Pausing?

Jun 16, 2012

I have an iMac 27" (intel 3.4 GHz, Intel core i7, and 16 GB memroy) purchased a few months ago. It is running the latest version of Lion 10.7.4 I run this computer on our network along with a iMac 24" 3.5years old and a Macbook Pro 2.5year old. 

This computer seems to have a beef with the Hewlett-Packard printer (HP colour laser jet CM1312nfi MFP) which I have had for about 3 years. I can not get the new computer to work with the printer properly. It allows printing but it pauses all the time when you resume the print it starts printing from the begining of the document againIt will pause any prints sent to it across the network after the first 1 or 2 pages are printedIt won't allow scanning at allWhen you launch the scanner it takes forever to connect (3 - 4 mins)If you try to scan using any of the scan options (if it loads the devise) it then states it can not connect to the device, or all the scan buttons apear but greyed out.This is odd as it will still allow printing?? 

Also, all the other PC's have the same version of Lion 10.7.4 and have the latest HP Driver installed (these were released on the 14 Dec 2011). Other useful infoThe scanner is hard wired to the 27" machineYou can only use the printer if one scanner is hard wired as it does not have wirless capacity.I have uninstalled and installed the software more times than i can count trying all different trouble shooting etcI can only conclued that there is somthing the 27" machine is doing to prevent the scnanner registering properlyNone of the other computers can use the scanner correctly either. As you can only scan a page at a time using the "Scan" button. If I wish to scan multiple pages on with either of the other computers I need to use the "scan to folder" button.

Hardware :: Unable To Install Dell All-in-one Printer / Can't Find The Printer In Drop Down List

Dec 8, 2009

I've seen previous discussions regarding problems installing a Dell printer. I have a Dell 962 wireless printer. I did find the compatible Mac driver R92834 and I did install the driver. However, when I try to add the printer, I can't find the printer in the drop down list. Am I supposed to be looking for a Lexmark printer? If so, I have no idea what model is equivalent to the Dell 962 AIO. The model sticker is 4409-0d1. A search for this model returns nothing. I'm a newbie with Macs. OS is 10.4.3. Got any ideas?

OS X :: Unable To Setup Printer / Computer Doesnot Recognize Printer

Aug 27, 2010

I have a pre-Intel iMac G5, running OS 10.5.8. I have been using an HP LaserJet P3005, connected with a USB2 cable, with no problems. The fuser got "muddy" on the 3005 so I bought a new HP LaserJet P2035n. I've loaded and reloaded the printer software from the provided CD, downloaded the driver software from the HP support website, but the computer doesn't recognize the printer. Called HP support and everything they suggested came up empty; they told me to exchange the printer for a another new one, but I get the same results with it. I'm using the same USB cable I used with the 3005 -- it worked perfectly with that printer as recently as this morning. What's wrong with my iMac or setup?

OS X :: Unable To Use Network Printer / Error 256 Using Printer Utility

Dec 3, 2010

I have been given an iMac g3 with osx 10.4.11 installed and airport card. My son will have this as his first computer. It is up and running and surfing the net using the airport connected to our home network. I have searched the forums and tried all the results I could find but am still unable to print from the iMac to my network printer.

iMac G3 10.4.11 osx slot loaded, airport wireless. Officejet all in one 6310 usb to pc running Vista. I have tried all the usual SAMBA and LPD methods listed going for generic printer, but get error 256 using printer utility, and NT_status_no_memory when using samba with all the settings, when trying LPD the printer service just stops.

I use LPD://user:password@workgroup/server/sharename and same for smb. I have set up a seperate account for the mac on the vista pc with password and started lpd service I've also edited the registry for lmcompatibility, printer sharing is enabled and both machines have the same workgroup name (WORKGROUP).

OS X :: Unable To Install Wireless Printer / Already Have A Similar Printer Set Up

Jan 15, 2010

I got a new HP wireless printer, and the mac suggested setting it up with the USB first, and then disconnecting once it was configured. I did all that.The mac asked to choose a wireless network for the printer, I did. Then the set up CD asked me to add a printer to the qeue from system preferences from the menu- when I clicked my printer was already added. None the less I followed the direction, and then got the message "You already have a similar printer set up, would you like to add this too?" I clicked YES, and then continue.

When I clicked on continue, the set up cd (or mac) told me that I had NOT set up a printer from the Queue (sorry about spelling), even though I had. So when I clicked continue, it told me the printer was not recognized in the wireless network, and now I'm stuck with plugging it in the usb. Please I know this sounds confusing, but why is this happening and what do I do to get the mac to recognize my printer? Apparently its not.My wireless signal is fine, I checked.

Hardware :: Setting Up Printer Wirelessly / HP Photosmart 8050 Printer?

Mar 7, 2010

this may be sort of a noob question but I was hoping someone could help me out. I have an HP photosmart 8050 printer hooked up to my iMac via USB. The thing is my girlfriend uses my other 2 dell laptops mainly for school while I use my iMac for school. All of these computers are on the same network and are scattered around my house.

So being in school we need to print out a lot of documentation and wanted to just have the printer setup wirelessly. I have a modem w/ the wired/wireless router, and all my computers have internal wireless cards.

Hardware :: Unable To Share Printer / Canon D480 Printer

Aug 22, 2009

I have 2 new I-Mac computers set up on a home network. I have my new Canon D480 Multifunction printer connected to one of the Macs ("Mac #1) by USB and it prints perfectly with the driver recommended in the printer manual downloaded from the Canon site. I have Printer sharing turned on. The printer's name on Mac #1 is Canon D460-490 (UFRII LT) which is the name that was automatically given to the printer when I downloaded the drivers and installed them.

However I am unable to print to the printer from the second new Mac ("Mac #2") although I have downloaded the same printer driver and have added the printer on Mac #2. The printer's name on Mac #2 is Canon D460-490 (UFRII LT) @ Mac #1.I go through the motions of File, Print, but nothing happens.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Can't See Printer Options On Shared Printer?

Apr 28, 2012

Have just added a wireless Canon printer to my local network.  Have a shared print queue on a Mac Mini. Have modified the printer options for this printer/queue using CUPS on the Mini. 

Identified as a shared printer.  Expanded options using CUPS, these options appear in the Mini "print" panel. Can see printer over network on another Mac.Cannot see printer presets, or expanded options on this machine "print" panel.Copies presets .plist from Mini to local machine, now see presets {this is suboptimal - the OS should see the shared presets).

Cannot see epanded print options on local machine.  I would expect the expanded options would be visible to

any network machine connected to this printer/queue. What am I missing?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: HP Printer Won't Show Up In "add A Printer"

Jun 4, 2012

My HP Laserjet was working fine (for months). Then suddenly, the print dialogue box began saying "printer disconnected" (when it was clearly connected). I've tried a variety of things to no avail:

1. I'm trying to print wirelessly using an AirPort Express (the way I've been doing it).

2. Updated the software for the AE

3. Re-set the printing system

4. Unplugged and replugged cables

5. Re-booted the AE and then did a factory re-set on the AE 

I simply can't figure out why I can't seem to "see" the printer in the "add a printer" box. Running 10.7.4
