Software :: Samsung SCX-4z16 Not Working With IMac?
Apr 23, 2009
my daughter get her Samsung multifunction connected to her iMac.
She does have Photoshop installed but when I go to Import > Samsung Series 4200 > I get the Warning message that no Scanner is connected. But looking on the System Profiler, it does recognize that the Samsung Printer is connected via USB.
I'm running OSX 10.4.11 on both a MacBook Intel duo and on a PowerMac G4. I bought a Samsung SCX4600 which has just been replaced by Samsung.
The first would print ok for single copies but was pitifully slow when asked for several copies even though it claims 20ppm and mac compatable. The replacement wont print at all, giving the message that "the printer is not responding". In both cases the scanner and photocopy functions work fine. I have loaded and reloaded the up to date driver and (following a resonse to an old similar query found on the [URL] support forum) run Printer Setup Repair 5.1.2 from MacFixit but with no benefit.
Before I spend another 30mins listening to musac while trying to get back to Samsung tec support, probably to try to get my money back:
1 Can I hope for a 3rd printer to be any better?
2 If not, any recommendations for an inexpensive b&w laser print/copy/scan machine which WILL work?
I have 3 Macs (iMac 24", iMac 27" and MacBook Pro 15") each are connected to their own USB Samsung printer (ML-2510 and ML 2010). Since the OSX 10.7.3 upgrade from February 3rd 2012, they all have the same problem. The printer is responding, when we send something to print, the printer starts running and then stops before printing anything. The strange thing is that the next time I try to print, it can be OK. I am able to print sometime but not always. This problem is the same on all 3 computers. I have tryed to reinstall the driver from the Samsung web site and it did not resolved the problems.
I recently purchased and Mini-Display to HDMI converter, which connects to an HDMI to HDMI cable which connects to my television. The video is working fine, but for some reason audio isn't working at all.
Im looking to connect my imac (intel core 2 duo) to my 46" Samsung LED TV for gaming, movies etc... how to hook this up (with the least amount of cables, my TV is on top of a mantle above the fireplace, so cords are a hassle). The TV is HDMI/DVI etc...
At the moment I have a 24" iMac (early 2008 model) which has been a fantastic machine. But I would like to extend the screen size by plugging in either 1 or 2 extra monitors to spread my windows out. I'm a web designer now, doing things related to Wordpress, so it is useful to have all the applications open in front of me, without having to CMD + Tab between windows or use Spaces.
I asked at a local Apple reseller some time ago what options were available for pluging in an additional monitor. I was told it wasn't possible with the then newly launched Cinema display, but was told something might be possible using VGA and a third-party display.
I'm now thinking again about extending my display space. I note Apple state the 24" cinema display is now iMac compatible and I've since found various video's on YouTube showing multi-monitor configurations with the iMac. I've seen a Samsung SyncMaster P2450H (or very similar) in person and thought the picture quality was excellent. Online the SyncMaster P2450H picks up good reviews and is much cheaper than a Cinema display. So my questions are as follows:-
1) Would there be any compatiblity or other issues connecting the SyncMaster P2450H to an iMac?
2) What cables / adapters / splitters would be required for a single monitor or two monitor setup?
If anyone's got any experience of the SyncMaster P2450H or can suggest something better, I'd be interested to know.
I think it worked at one point, but sometime around the point when I set up Fusion with the partition, Windows Aero turned off and is no longer an option in the display settings. I installed this driver with the modded INF to see if it would do anything, but Aero is still not an option. I also have issues playing some games in Fusion, while they work fine in Boot Camp.
I finally decided to get a new 27" iMac in order to release the old G4 from it's pain. What I wasn't aware of tho, was that there's no firewire 400 port on it anymore, which I need for all my peripherals (scanner, hard drives, etc.)
I bought a firewire 800 to 400 adapter, and while everything fits physically, there's no connection. The iMac refuses to find any hardware I connect to it...
I don't have anything that uses firewire 800, so I can't do a proper diagnostic. Thought I'd ask you people if you have any idea what might be the problem?
I recently went away for the weekend and when I came back my USB ports don't work. When I first start my 24" iMac the mouse lights up but then goes off later on when it's booting up. I really don't know what to do and i'm not even sure if I got any discs with my iMac as it had Leopard preloaded...
I have an iMac 2.4Ghz 24" about 18 months old. After a visitor's mains powered hard drive (which was later shown to be already faulty!) was connected I lost the power to the USB bus inside the iMac. I can still use devices that need power with an USB port expander but this is far from ideal. USB data is working fine as is the firewire port. Simply the power to the USB. I have reset the PRAM but not yet reset the Power Management Unit. I assume there is no physical fuse for the USB power internally as I have not seen a reference to one anywhere. Should I reset the PMU?
Are the USB and their power integral to the motherboard? On start up I get the error message: "USB Over Current Notice. A USB device is currently drawing too much power. The hub it is attached to will be deactivated." I get this error message even when nothing not even keyboard is plugged in (so its not that faulty keyboard error). There really is no power at the USB ports - but data is working
When i open photobooth, all i get is the camera logo with a line going thru it... When i open ichat, it says no camera is attached... There is no green light, in system profiler under USB TREE, the isight is not even recognized....
I have just aquired a slot loading iMac g3. It is a blueberry model, with a 350 MHz g3, and 512 megs of ram. Not that that matters. Anyway, it seems to have been dropped and has a crack above the crt. The speakers also do not work. I plugged in a pair of speakers in both of the headphone jacks. Nothing. The audio port. Nothing. I checked the volume, and it was at full blast. Not even a peep from the speakers. The sound area in the system preferences did not have an option for internal speakers, it was just greyed out with headphones as the selection. By the way, it is running Tiger. I opened it up, and everything is connected. I took the logic board off, and everything is fine. I put it back together and booted it up and... NOTHING..... What could be going wrong?
So I just bought the new kanex xd and once I plugged in PS3 I could not figure out why it wouldn't work so I gave up and tried my 360 and it worked great. With the ps3 I even reset the video by holding down the power button until it beeps twice. I don't know what else to do. Can anybody tell me how they ran through setting up their ps3?
I Have a new imac i5, I have been unable to play cds on it. DVDs do work. the cd's are CD-R and do work on windows 7 and some are form a imac, most of the cd's have Photo's on them. here is what i get when putting in a Cd......... There was a problem opening the media. The media type is not supported. when I Restart the imac i get a message that the disk is unreadable even when it has no disk in it.
Growltunes will not seem to work on my 2010 iMac! Growl works for everything else, but will not post notifications from iTunes 10. It's installed locally (i've tried in ~/Applications and in ~/Applications/Utilities..) and is definitely running (I've checked in Activity monitor)
Done the standard thing of uninstalling and re-installing boths apps to no avail. Really maddeningly, Growltunes tells me what the last song played is (see attachment) but it wont display a notification! Even more infuriatingly it works perfectly on my MBP with iTunes 10.
I have a aluminum iMac, which has been working fine until now. A couple of hours ago I restarted it and went and did something else for a couple of hours. I then came back to find my keyboard and mouse not working, I double checked and they were both plugged in fine (I use the aluminum apple keyboard and a kensington mouse). I restarted my computer but it still did not fix the problem (I was still stuck at the login screen). I thought it might be the USB, so I plugged my iPod in, and it did not charge. While my iPod was still connected to my computer I restarted it again and as soon as the screen turned grey my iPod started charging and my mouse worked (the light turned on), but only until the grey apple logo appeared and it then stopped working again. I have tried every USB slot and none of them work. I'm pretty sure my computer was completely updated as well.
I have had my 24" 2.8GHz iMac from November 2007 flawless until today, 1 of 3 usb ports on the back simply decided to stop working. my keyboard, when plugged in, does not work, however, I usually use this one port with my iPod, when I plug my iPod in, it turns on, says its connected, then ejects automatically, though in the other ports...it works fine in the other ports.
So my USB KB was looking pretty grungy so got the bright (or not so bright) idea of cleaning it with windex. I sprayed a little on a paper towel and tried to gently clean the grunge off the keys. It is now clean, but the "D" and "E" keys do not work. Its been three days also so I figure if some liquid did spill under the keys they would be dry by now. Is this a good excuse to buy a new imac?
Title says it all...how does the new iMac work as an external monitor? Is there a way to use it as a monitor without having to log in / load OS? Is there any delay as compared to a standard monitor? I'm just thinking long term as the iMac becomes long in the tooth and we move on to new machines. Can the iMac still be used as a quick turn on monitor or do you need to load up both machines (and do you need to rely on all parts functioning in the iMac, such as mobo, hard drive, etc. still working) to utilize it as a monitor)?
I've just bought Aperture 2, and during installation blithely told it to import all my 10,000 or so iphoto images. After several hours I'm just looking at it in browser view with 10,000 grey rectangles, and a little "thumbnails" flash appearing every few seconds on the bottom bar of the browser. 24" IMac 3.06 with 4GB RAM
Does anybody have any tips on how to get RAM out of an aluminum iMac? I've been pulling on the plastic tabs for over a half an hour, pulling side-to-side, straight, and both RAM modules refuse to budge.
When I upload pictures, the thumbnails won't show the picture, just the dotted line outline for all thumbnails.
Also, when I rotate a picture, it won't hold the rotation. After I have rotated it, I go over to iMovie to put the picture in it's spot, and it generates back to it's original direction before I rotated it.
i was going to put an installation disc in my iMac. When i noticed that it would not suck in the disc. I tried pressing and holding down the eject button but nothing actually happened. I don't want to push the disc in because it will get stuck in there. The Apple Store is in the capital and i live about 332 km or hundreds of miles away from there so are there any tips?
