Have macbook running OS X 10.5.7. Bought an Epson NX100 printer from Target for $30, it says Mac compatible, but my macbook won't recognize the printer. I tried installing the new printer but there is no "Epson NX" from the drop down menu.
Usually with new printers you can just plug it into the USB port, install new printer, and you're set.
I wonder if you can suggest something? My MBP currently doesn't recognise the printer I have (HP OfficeJet 6210, which has worked before with this computer). In fact the list of printer models under "add printer" is now empty. So it doesn't detect any printer and I can't suggest any printer for it to detect. I tried reinstalling the "printers" part of Snow Leopard but it didn't change anything. What would be the best thing to do?
I have an HP printer hardwired to my iMAC and have been sharing the printer, wirelessly through the home network, with an older Powerbook G4. I've added a third laptop (Mac Pro) which also shares the Wireless network, but can see the Printer online. I get a message that the Printer is not Online.
why the third laptop can't see the printer online?
I have Mac OS 10.7.3 I keep getting the message 'there was problem connecting to server epson 6649b7. I go to that printer, which was never an active printer, but it will not allow me to delete it. The only option I am given is resume printing / supply levels / printer setup. Even if I correctly choose Epson WF600 as my default printer, I still get that message popping up constantly.

Just out of the blue, I can't print using my epson 600, a multi use printer that I have set up on my network.
The strange thing is my scaning driver is there and working, but my wireless printer is not there. I can see my Epson Printer, but its not the wireless driver, its the older driver for using the cable.
I recently upgraded our iMac OS to 10.7. Now the computer doesn't recognize the Epson Workforce 845 printer. I uninstalled the printer in system preferences. Now what do I do to install the printer again and use it wirelessly?

I'm feeling a bit like a ping-pong ball with my brand new $250 paperweight, otherwise know as the Epson Picturemate 300 SHOW compact printer. I dumped Canon because they stopped supporting the Selphy 780 after about 2 years. That said, when I try to add the SHOW, Apple "says" their is no compatible software and to check with the printer manufacturer. So i check with Epson....they say check with APPLE!
In grad school renting a furnished apt for the summer, and trying to hook up HP printer (4215) to my Macbook that runs Lion. I've noticed on the discussions there are weird things that go on with HP and Lion, so I followed the advice of another discussion and downloaded the software/drivers noted for HP from the Apple website (software update did not detect).
Now, when I go into system preferences to add the printer, the printer shows up to be added, but forces me to click "add" to add and download the software - which I don't need, having already downloaded it. As other people have mentioned, this results in an error "this software is not currently available?
Is there something stupid I'm missing? It's a USB connection, printer is recognized by the computer, but the automatic software won't download and I'm not sure what to do with the software I DID download to get it to be recognized.
My IMAC recently downloaded software from Epson for my Epson Artisan 810 printer. The result is that my printer no longer recognises non Epson printer cartridges. Do I have to buy genuine Epson cartridges or do I buy a new printer?
In prep for moving to the "Cloud", I downloaded Lion last night without the knowledge that my 2005 version of Office would no longer be supported. Silly me, now I need to either switch to IWORKS or something else, immediately, so I can get back to work. If I download IWORKS or LIBRE will I be able to open my OFFICE files that are already on my computer?
Lion is working perfectly and I'm having no issues. I launched the App Store app the other day and noticed under purchases that although Lion is listed as one of my purchases, the button to the right doesn't read "Installed" like my other purchases do. Instead the button says "Install". Lion already is.
In my Mac App Store it says that OS X Lion isn't installed even though I bought it with Lion. And the same thing with FaceTime. It show the other apps that I've installed as installed. Its only OS X Lion and FaceTime. How can I fix this?
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Everything is updated
In Windows XP/Vista, if you are navigating in a folder containing pictures, and you click any picture, it opens up Windows built in preview program. Much like OSX. However, in Windows, you can click "Next/Previous" within that program to quickly flip through those photos. Why do the up & down arrows in OSX not work? I still prefer my iMac to any PC I have owned, but this one little thing bugs me to no end. Is there a setting I can change somewhere to make that work like in Windows?
This button allowed (in Snow Leopard and even in Tiger) to see the final page full size, or even to save as a PDF file. This functionality is sadly missing on my computer since I have upgraded to LION, making me regret the move. Is there some pref somewhere that I should adjust, or just plainly forget about it. ? When I print, the dialog window does NOT show the Preview button anymore.
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?
I have an Epson Perfection v500 scanner and am having problems getting the Image Capture app to recognize it. The included epson scan software will not work with Snow Leopard- this includes the newer "snow leopard compatible" drivers and app.Anyone else have problems with the Image Capture app and Epson scanners?
I have a Mac OS X with 10.6.5 version software. The Guttenberg (excuse spelling) driver works but the graphics printing has faults. So I would like to get the Epson (Epson Stylus Photo r200) driver working on the Mac. The Epsom software is the latest easyprint 2009 and after installation it was available for selection in the list of available printers and seemed to install okay. I have tried reinstalling, rebooting and have followed Epson's troubleshooting pages including resetting the printers and repairing permissions.
If I click "options supplies" on the "printers and faxes window" and then "utility" and then "open printer utility" it tells me that Epson printer utility 4 cannot be executed or the printer is not registered for this software and cannot function properly using the current connections. Is there somewhere else on the computer where I have to tell it to use the USB to print or do I have to register it with the computer or with Epson?
I have lots of problems with that printer (Ricoh Aficio 1022).It's a network printer and the drivers from the producer web site dosen't work (one page with some words and lots of blank pages).I tried Gutenprint (rel 5.2.7), but the printer it's still in standby.So I tried pxlomono - foomatic, but can't see the driver. wich protocol I need to use ? (IPP, LP od HP Jectdireck socket)
I purchased an Epson CX8300 recently to work with my iMac and MacBook. It works fine with both via USB connection. However, when set to print wirelessly via an Airport Extreme Base Station, the print jobs don't ever appear in the print queues on either systems. I tried switching to the Gutenprint driver but this just spits out one blank page after another.
