Hardware :: Finding Laser Printer - HP P1006 Or Brother 2140

Apr 15, 2009

So I'm deciding between getting an HP P1006 or Brother 2140. My concern with these printers is their durability. I have had a Brother HL-2040 for 1.5 yrs but it was an awful experience, I had problems with paper loading. But, several websites say that the Brother 2170W is great. So, I am tempted to buy the 2140 or 2170W but I am not sure if it will be durable. I want to know which one do you guys think is more durable for use with MacOSX Leopard: HP or Brother?

Hardware :: Mac 10.4 To WinXP And HP P1006 Laser Printer

Sep 21, 2008

I installed the HP driver on my Mac by temporarily connecting it via USB port. No problem. The printer is normally attached to an XP machine. Mac can see the printer on the Windows Network, but the HP driver install disk does not. I can't seem to locate the P1006 on the Mac hard disk, and it does not show up on the driver list in printer setup.

Hardware :: Canon Or Brother Color Laser Multifunction Printer?

Oct 27, 2009

I'm trying decide between a Canon or Brother color laser multifunction printer. Quite honestly we don't do a lot of color printing, but I'm so tired of clogged inkjets (can you say Epson) that I'm trying to stay clear of them. A multifunction inkjet would seem appropriate for our situation, but I don't want to have clean printheads once a month. Even if we do get a mutlfunctional laser I still need a a small photoprinter for quick photos prints. My other option is a multifunctional inkjet and then a B&W laser printer. I'm down to Canon and Brother based on the fact both seem to work well with Macs and don't have the bloated software that comes with HP. I can't find any reviews on the Canon lasers since they are relatively new. The Brother machines seem to get good reviews, but quite a few complain about the color prints.

MacBook Pro :: Wireless Brother Printer Disappeared?

Mar 5, 2010

When I first set up this new macbook pro the printer installed perfectly and worked great. Today I hit 'print' and nothing. No printer installed. I'm not a computer guru so I don't know what to do when set up asks for 'machine' ip addresses. What machine...printer or laptop?? Right now I'm very frustrated because it worked great and now, poof, it doesn't. I tried using the install dvd to reinstall the printer after clicking customize it still looked like it wanted to reinstall the whole operating system. Wasn't clear to me at all so I ended that before really screwing things up.

Here's how I'm set up: 13" MacBookPro unibody aluminum, SnowLeopard OSX6, Airport Extreme wireless router, Brother MFC490CW Wireless printer with my wife's intel iMac also connected to the printer via lan cable. I would seriously appreciate some suggestions that I can understand to get this what should be a simple configuration to work and stay put. I suspect it's a simple process but at this point I'm clueless.

Windows On Mac :: Brother Wireless Printer Will Not Install Under 7?

Aug 15, 2010

I have a Mac mini (mid-2010), Brother MFC-9840CDW multi-function device (built-in wireless), Windows 7 (64-bit) running on Boot Camp, Windows 7 built-in firewall turned off, Westell router


Brother website, "Wireless Setup Wizard for Windows," dated 2007. I appropriately responded to the prompts, only to have the program end without making any noticeable changes.

Brother website, "Full Driver & Software Package." It could did not find my printer to install. It did see my neighbor's printer.

Called Brother. Factory reset of the printer, printer WAN setup WEP with password, printer setting WAN enabled. When wireless failed, we tried to connect the printer via ethernet cable to the router directly. Also pinged the IP address of the printer and input the IP address in the Brother install program instead of having Windows find it on its own.

Called Apple. The tech did not have a clue. Said she would pass me to a lead/supervisor, but no one ever picked up.

Windows could only see the printer if I connected the USB cable directly from the printer to the Mac mini. But I do not want to run it that way. That's why I got the CDW model ("W" for "wireless"). It worked wirelessly under XP on my old PC that the Mac replaced.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Installing Networked Brother Printer?

Feb 2, 2012

I have a Brother HL-2270 DW printer setup on my network. I see it as an option to add, but when I select it, it says that the software is available through apple.  So it makes me select "install and continue" or "cancel". If i select continue, it works on it and then says it is not able to find the software. So i manually went on to the brother website and downloaded the driver. WHen I go back to add the printer it still wants to go through the apple software databse, and as a result I cannot load the printer.

Intel Mac :: Installing A Brother MFC-J6510DW Printer

Apr 22, 2012

My grandfather purchased a Brother MFC-J6510DW all in one printer several weeks ago and since day one we cannot get the thing installed and recognised on his mac.He running an Imac with OS X 10.7. Originally the computer recognised the printer but when we tried to print nothing would happen. We opened up the printer que and noticed that the job had a error but the system didnt tell me what error.I have visited the Brother website and followed the advice to uninstall all the printer drivers and associated docs and then reinstalled the drivers..... Now my grandfathers machine will not recognise my printer at all and when we try to manually search for the drivers (that we have installed) the mac does not load any for this specific printer.Is there anyone out there who can shine a light on our problem)?

OS X :: Airport Won't Turn On After Brother Printer Driver Installation?

Sep 26, 2009

After I installed Snow Leopard everything has been working fine but I installed the latest Brother fax/printer driver and supporting apps yesterday Airport stopped working. So I restarted the computer but still won't turn on, no matter what I do. I'm not 100% sure if they are related but it's hard to believe they are not. I can remove all the Brother related stuff but I still need the printer driver.

Has anybody had this problem and can anybody suggest a solution?

Hardware :: Getting An Old Laser Printer?

Apr 18, 2010

I don't print very often, and I'm sick and tired of ink drying up in the print head, ink ending up on the rollers, etc.

What about getting an old laser printer? It would be extra cool to have one on a network with all the other Macs. I hear that printers using the LaserWriter 8 driver works with everything from the old 68k to the new Mac OS X. But which printers are they? I guess they must have TCP/IP to work with post-AppleTalk versions of the OS.

Hardware :: How To Find A Laser Printer

Apr 12, 2010

One of my summer projects I think is going to be getting as much paper out of my room as I can, it's all over the place. There is stuff I'd like to keep obviously, so I was thinking of buying a cheap scanner. But I figured, if I'm going to buy a cheap scanner, might as well go all the way and get an All-In-One Laser Printer. I don't want to spend too much, and I don't need it to print pictures or anything graphically intensive. The farthest I'd go would be some graphs most likely. And I'd like it to be moveable so I can take it to school with me.

Hardware :: Wireless Duplex Laser Printer?

I think it's time for me to go to wireless printing, and I'm tired of printing only single-sided (or trying to manually feed printed paper back in to try to get it two-sided.

Are there affordable laser printers out there that print duplex, have wireless, and are Mac-compatible?

Hardware :: Good Laser Color Printer?

Mar 25, 2009

I am looking to get a color laser printer within the next three months or so, I am getting sick walking to the one of the computer labs at my college. The HP one that I was looking at (1200-something) isn't compatible, or so people claimed in the Amazon reviews. I don't need anything super fancy, just something good enough for term papers and good color documents.

Hardware :: Color Laser Printer - HP / Canon?

Without knowing any particular models, which brand would you say is better for an all-in-one color laser printer in your experience...HP or Canon? I have always had HP, but I have grown tired of their driver issues, etc. I have never had any Canon computer products before, but they have 2 new models that look appealing to me.

Hardware :: Buying New Laser Printer - Is Postscript Necessity

May 4, 2009

My old B/W laser printer has bitten the dust, and I'm shopping for a new model. In the past, I have always insisted on a Postscript-compatible printer, thinking this was the only way to render high-quality graphics (I print plenty of text-only documents of course, but technical drawings and fancy typograph still constitute the bulk of my printing). Is Postscript (or Postscript emulation) still an important feature for today's laser printers?

Hardware :: Cheap Mono Laser Printer Comparison

Aug 29, 2009

I'm looking to pick up a cheap mono laser printer with duplex and have narrowed the choice down to two. The Oki B410d and the Brother HL-5340D. They're both low-end with relatively similar price except the Oki is a LED printer and the Brother is a laser. With reliability the biggest issue here, has anyone had any experience with either brand or heard any stories?

Hardware :: Color Laser Network / Wireless All In One Printer

These three are in the $300-$500 range. Price is not a concern, quality is, as is wireless printing if possible or at least attached to my Time Capsule. Which would you choose, or would you recommend something else? - HP Color Laser All in One CC431A#A2L - Brother Wireless All-In-One Laser Printer (MFC7840W)- Canon Color imageCLASS MF8050CN Multifunction Printer
