OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Epson Laser Prints Low On Multiple Pages / Copies
Mar 12, 2012
I have an Epson AcuLaser C2600 which I got some years ago and which has run fine on 10.3, 10.4 and until recently on 10.6. It has suddenly started printing second and later copies of a single page document about 3cm lower on the page than it should. It does the same on pages after the first page in multi-page documents. This does not always happen but does for much or even most of the time. This happens in various applications. Sometimes the printer shows a 'Check paper size' warning but does not stop.
Discussions with Epson have led to checking Print and Fax preferences, Page Set Up, Extended Printer Settings (all of which I'd done) and making some changes to the printer control panel connected to Paper Size and Auto Continue. The problem remains and discussions continue. It is worth commenting that something like this seems to have been an Epson issue for some time but the suggested solutions have not worked for me.
I have stuck on 10.6.7 because there seemed to be a number of printer issues with 10.6.8 and as everything was fine (and I like a quiet life).†I have made no OS updates so it is hard to understand why this has suddenly started (unless it is a hardware issue). I recently installed Pages 4.1, the only other changes have been things like updating browsers (and adding a couple of extensions) and other applications.

I am needing an AIO color laser that prints, copies, scans and faxes for my Tiger and soon to be Snow Leopard MacBook. Price is not an object (for the most part). I've been looking but have found anything that has a fax.
I can't seem to be able to print multiple copies of a document in Leopard. I've tried 3 different network printers (2 windows printers, 1 direct IP printer) using 3 different MacBooks. All running 10.5.1. It'll print 1 copy just fine, but that's it. If you want multiple copies you have to keep sending it to the printer, which is a pain.
Can anybody try printing 2 or more copies with a local printer and see if that works? I think I may have found my first truly annoying Leopard bug
My hp deskjet 5850 will only print in black with snow leopard. I contacted hp and they said there is not updated driver since all the hp drivers are included in the snow leopard dvd. When I go to the Apple support to find the printers supported in snow leopard the 5850 is not listed. I tried changing the "Print Using" catagory to Generic PCL Laser Printer like the Apple site suggested but still won't work.
10.9.4 with Epson WF 845.¬† Queue opens, job appears to process out of the queue and the queue closes.¬† Nothing happens at the printer.¬† Only the one printer on the network.¬† Have deleted & added the printer.¬† Have reset the printer system.¬† Printer wired through a Linksys WRT 1900AC and computers are wireless to the same router.¬† Worked fine until the last day or so.

I have an HP 4050TN LaserJet printer that I had networked via ethernet to my iMac (when it was running just leopard) Once I did all the updates for 10.6.8, I found that my printer is nowhere to be seen, I can't add it. Nothing.¬†I found hp printer drivers for Lion, but I'm not going to get Lion, if i just have to turn around and get Mountain Lion in a couple of months anyway .Regarding my Scanner:When I try to use my Cannon CanoScan 8800F MP Navigater justs quits. . . . ¬†
Last year, my roommates and I got together and bought the snow leopard family pack for us all to upgrade with. We are now getting ready to move out and go to separate parts of the country. We would all like to have a restore disk. My questions is, what is the legality of making a copy of the snow leopard family pack disk for each one of us?
I am putting this under OS questions because I assume it is an OS thing. The computer is a Mac Mini, I also have a Mac Pro workstation. I am consolidating all photos on to one external drive I plan to duplicate and remove to a safe deposit box, returning it occasionally to update it. My wife tends to store stuff on the stystem drive of our home mac mini (which is only 120gb) so I did a search of "Macintosh HD" looking for anything with ".jp" in the filename.
I soon realized most of these were in a folder that could be generically described as "USER>>Library>>Mail>>IMAP-(Account)>>GMAIL>>" with several layers more depending on when it was sent. It seems every email is being physically stored on hard drive, including attachments. This has turned into many GB of stuff, and explains some of our system drive congestion. How do I stop this? Note that I do not want to stop iCal from syncing my Gmail calandars, I just don't need mail stored on HDD, as it stays in Gmail server forever anyway.
Note also that we both sign in as same user, and I use gmail and it does NOT do it for my account, only hers, so I assume when I set up system it asked for an email and I put in hers. She uses browser based mailing, so I don't see why this is happening, unless mail just updates anyway. This is cluttering up my system drive unnecessarrily, and seems an odd feature. How do I safely eliminate files that are there (not just pics but anything else that is unnecessary) and how do I keep it from doing it again in the future?
I have set up an automator service that TAR's a folder into an archive for me and it works quite nicely. Idealy however, I would like to be able to highlight several folders, right click and have automator tar each folder into it's own TAR archive, but do it one by one. ¬†
I'm not 100% sure so I guess it would be a good time to verify, is there a problem with having the system try to TAR multiple folders at one time? If it is not a problem then I guess this discussion itself is pointless and I can simple right click on each folder and select "TAR Folder" and just wait until they're all finished. I would think that it would be ideal for the system to do each one individually and not try to do them all at one time.¬†
I have just upgraded my Macbook 2.2GHz Intel with 2 GB RAM and 250GB HD from 10.5 to 10.6 My Epson stylus photo R1800 printer has stopped working. I have downloaded the 'drivers & utilities combo package' from the Epson website, installed, restarted etc but still nothing being printed.
I have a HP Photosmart C4200 Series (C4280 to be exact). I have recently installed Snow Leopard (was using Leopard before) and this printer shows as supported in Snow Leopard.The problem I'm having, is that when I go to print a document from Microsoft Word (Office 2008) for Mac, all I get are blank pages. I printed something from Text Edit and it comes out fine, but files from Microsoft Word come out blank. Also, the "Test" pages come out fine as well.
I have been printing files for months and months now from Microsoft Word, but this is the first time I have tried in Snow Leopard.Does anyone know what is going on? I really need to print stuff since its for school.
I have upgraded my soft ware to Snow leopard and now my almost brand new¬† Epson SX 515W copier printer and scanner will not print. Massage Error:/ System/ Library/ Pri always appears. ¬†have ried down loading also disinstalled printer¬† and reinstalled. ¬†
Whenever there is a software driver update via Apple for my Epson printer, I always update it. But, is it normal for one to delete and readd the printer to use the new driver? I notice my system says it's the old driver until I delete and readd..

I am a Mac user and I'm totally addicted to Pages '09. I am currently writing my thesis in Pages and I am strongly considering leaving Word aside. My only problem lies with safety copies: I am the only Mac user in my house and I'm afraid that if something happens to my computer I will be unable to use the .pages files in my Macbook because the damned Word processor is unable to read them. Using the export function is not very useful because this would oblige me to maintain hundreds of copies of my files.
Are there any Windows programs that can convert .pages to .doc? This way I could ask my Parents to install it in their PC and I could go there with my external disk in case anything happens (knock three times). Alternatively are there any Windows word processors that can read pages files?
I have just upgraded to Snow Leopard and at the end of the upgrade the printer drivers failed to load. I have since updated them myself (Epson BX305) but still get an error message 'rasteroescpll failed'. I have an IMac previously running 5.8.0 and now running 6.3.0.
I have noticed that when Mail is downloading my new email, and I look at the "Mail Activity" box in the lower right corner of the application, it seems to be downloading double the mail I am seeing.¬† For instance, if I see 6 new emails, there will be a blue bar and the message "downloading X of 12 messages" as they come in.¬†It doesn't seem to happen with my Mobileme account, just with my IMAP account from GoDaddy.¬†Only the correct number of messages appear visible in my Inbox.¬†I deal with large files on a regular basis, I really don't want my storage to double, and it just seems like something is wrong that should be fixed.¬†

Printing from any program, Two-Sided Printing on the print prompt screen is grayed out. There's no reason for this, as my desktop Windows does double-sided all the time. I've found a lot of discussions in the Leopard forum about this problem, but none of them used my system or my printer and I couldn't find similar solutions. I'm running 10.6.8., trying to print from Chrome specifically, wirelessly connected to my printer.¬†
Since I updated my Imac to snowleopard, there is no more printing on the good old epson stylusphoto1200 incjetprinter. even after downloading abaout 1 gigabyte (or 2) of Epson-drivers (from the apple-site) nothing works (" you need to update the software of your printer".. , but everything is updated on softwe√°re-update..)

I have gmail set up on my mac & iphone as IMAP. Works great, except for a weird deal whenever I send mail. After the email has been sent, if I go to trash, I'll find multiple copies of the sent email sitting there. I.E.- today I sent a single email(not a reply), and there were 16, yes 16 copies of that sent email in my trash. There was only one copy in the sent mail folder. It's a pain deleting all this stuff.
I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Now when i open the new firefox i get an error message:"Close Firefox. A copy of firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."Ive uninstalled again, empied the trash, searched the computer for traces (at least thats what i think i did) and nothing works help!
I figured out how to run multiple copies of skype by launching the .app file from different osx user accounts in terminal.¬† What I'm trying to do now is script this or automate opening terminal and typing the line with automator.¬† The following is the line that I use.¬†
su user2 -c "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype && exit"¬†
And I just change user2 to user3 for a third instance of skype and so on. how ot automate this process?

I upgraded to Mavericks and one of the widgets that was in the + area has been duplicated on my dashboard and I can't get rid of them. There is no 'manage widgets' button like there was in Snow Leopard. I can't get those little Xs to appear, unless I want to delete the widget entirely.
Recently, my Apple Mail has been sending from two to six copies of email, timed to the same minute. I've taken to using Thunderbied (which I don't prefer) to avoid it. My theory is that if I can reload Lion it might cure it, but since Lion only comes as a download, I don't know how.
