IMac :: Unable To Install Dell Printer / Usable Driver Loaded Into OS X?


I'm an IMac newbie, so please excuse me if this is "old" information. However, I've done a lot of searching and can't find a "simple" solution. Maybe there isn't one. Again, please excuse me if this is dumb...Just got a new 27" IMac. I have a Dell AIO 966. I know now there is no OEM driver. But, I thought there was a Lexmark driver model (that might show up in the OX 10 install process I could substitute, or a Generic driver. So far, no luck. And frankly, some of the things I am reading when I search are either old, old posts or too complex for me.

Is the simple answer, "get a new printer?" Or, is there a usable driver loaded into OS X? Is there a thread or post that I am missing?

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

Hardware :: Dell 1100 Laser Printer Driver / Reset Queue And Lost The Driver
I had a Dell 1100 laser printer working on my iMac (G4 ball type) using a GIMP printer. I had to reset the queue and lost the driver. I can't remember which GIMP driver I used. Also, although I have loaded the latest GIMP s/w, I can't seem to get to them in Tiger 10.4.6.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Install Printer Driver?
I have a MacBook running OS X 10.5.5. It connects to my Windows wireless network where my HP Officejet 7310 is located, physically connected to one of the Windows pc's. I try to connect to the printer from File...Print in Pages and whilst it can find the printer, the driver isn't listed (strange - there's a kb item [URL] which shows it should be). So I download the driver from the HP web site and run the install but even then the printer isn't listed.

OS X Leopard :: Reinstalling Driver For Dell 1110 Printer?
The 10.5.7 update lost the driver for my Dell 1110 monochrome laser printer. I've been very happy with this printer for the past 18 months and am still on my starter toner cartridge, despite the printer telling me a year ago that I needed a new one.

FYI, this printer is actually a Samsung ML-2010 and you can get a driver here:[URL]

If this link breaks, just email me and I'll send you a copy.

Dell should be ashamed for not providing this driver.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Install Printer Driver On IMac
I can't install a printer on my iMac. When I go through system prefs, add printer, it sees the printer and manages to make it to looking for installable options then that window just hangs. I can use the computer, but the window stays and it never actually installs the drivers, i'm using a wireless connection. The same thing happened before with a previous Epson printer connecting by USB. In the end I managed to connect it to my Macbook.

OS X :: Install Driver For Windows Shared Printer
I need to install the Canon MP520 printer to my MBP. The printer is connected to another a PC running windows and is shared. I installed the OSX driver provided on the Canon page, I can see the printer in the network printers but when I am asked to choose the driver I can't see the correct model listed. On the other hand, if I simply connect the same printer via USB, to my MBP it is recognized directly. When I'm asked to provide the driver while adding the printer via the network, there is also the option to browse to the driver location. So my question is, where are the can I find the right driver on the OS?

Hardware :: Unable To Install Drivers For Printer / Samsung CLX-3160fn Printer
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 :: Unable To Install Wireless Printer / Already Have A Similar Printer Set Up
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.

Upon start up, it's asking for Direct X, installed that as well. Then it said that it failed because I don't have the driver. I checked and the driver is non-existent for graphics.

IMac :: Unale To Locate Driver / Canon MP380 Printer
I have installed the Canon MP380 printer driver for my new imac but I cannot find it listed under the Canon model name in Printer Setup. All I see are "gimp beta" this or that. When I try to print the text is too small. It's not filling up the standard size piece of paper I am printing on. What am I doing wrong here??? This is very confusing.

IMac Intel :: No Option To Select Quiet Mode In Printer Driver
I installed a new HP P2035 printer to my iMac. It works well except for one feature - the option to select Quiet Mode - The slower and quieter print speed. This option is not available on HP driver version 1.2.0.224. I installed HP driver software on my PC Windows XP system --the option exists in this version. Workaround is to set option on PC, print a few pages on the P2035 under Windows XP and then re-connect printer to iMac. This procedure downloads the correct option setting to the HP printer memory. This printer makes a racket at high speed!

Software :: Use The Dell Win XP Home Disc To Do The Install On The Imac?
I have a new Imac and will soon install Leopard

I have in my office 2 Dell PCs that came with Win XP Home which were installed and activated, but are no longer used at all since I had to replace XP home with Win XP Pro due to office networking needs.

So, can I use the Dell Win XP Home Disc (which I really, no longer use) to do the install on the Imac and will Microsoft let me activate it? (I suspect I will have to call them.) I can get the Product Key Number off the side of the Dell tower. That would be a nice savings.

One more question, if I can't use my existing disc and have to buy a fresh Windows OS, would I be better off buying XP Home or Vista Basic. My real need to install Win is just to run MS Money and Word Perfect (I have Word on the Imac but all my previous docs are in WP).

OS X Leopard :: Canon Selphy Photo Printer Not Working Despite New Printer Driver Installed?
I've tried to add a Canon Selphy photo printer. iMac recognises the printer through both the iPhoto application, and through Print&Fax preferences, and latest appropriate driver has been downloaded from Canon and "installed", yet nothing happens when photos are supposed to print.

Also connected is Samsung printer working fine. Selecting the Selphy printer (Vs Samsung printer) is not the answer - there is no problem 'selecting' the Selphy photo printer, just that nothing happens.

Power/USB cable etc also not the answer, as connect/disconnect from iMac shows the printer as being connected appropriately.

OS X Leopard :: DLINK 2160 Printer Server - Adding Printer - Driver
I recently purchased a Dlink 2160 print server. The print server I am able to manage via LAN and via its web management. The print server can support up to 4 usb enabled printers. So when adding a printer, just input the IP address and the port number. Using my MBP, I am able to see the server, however, adding the desired printer attached to it requires a driver. I selected "Auto Select" and it selected the "post script". The same printer was previously installed locally.. so i wanted to locate the driver myself but could not find it..

Well all i need is simply locate the driver... i am not familiar with the IP printer protocol to be used since the printers are behind the print server. does anyone out there uses this print server?

I can't remember how I did this, but all printers were removed.  I reinstalled the above driver, but now in the 'print & scan' - 'add printer' section, I have no printer options.  And no idea how to get printer options.

Hardware :: Unable To Install Wireless Printer / Wlan Setup Asking For Password
I've been working on this for about 8 hours and I'm going nuts. I am using an Imac OS X version 10.5.8.I purchased a Canon MP560 today and can't figure out the problem. I don't even know where to start. I'm trying to connect the wireless printer using Airport. There is nothing listed when I click on 'Preferences- Print and Fax'.

I read the instructions that came with the printer several times, up to a point. I clicked 'wireless lan setup' on the printer. It's asking me for a lan access point and a wep key. I've used Google until I can't even think anymore. I read Airport is like a router, or can be used as a router. The blue light is on on the printer, and it says it's searching for a connection but can find one.

It's a Dell 1700 printer connected to a networked XP machine, and all the PC's in my house can see/use it just fine, but for some reason on my MBP I cant at all.
