MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Printer / Computer Shuts Down While Printing

Nov 1, 2009

I've got a four year old Macbook Pro 17", running 10.5.8 OSC, 2.33 ghz, 3gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram.

The power cord was unplugged, although the battery was fully charged. I plugged in my Canon printer for the first time in over a year. It printed half a document, then the computer shut down. I pushed the power button and got the start up chord, but then it shut down again. Tried this a few times. Then I unplugged the printer and plugged in the power chord. it started, but it's very slow, and I keep getting the pinwheel.

OS X :: Unable To Setup Printer / Computer Doesnot Recognize Printer

Aug 27, 2010

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?

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Printing From Imac - Unable To Recognize Printer

Nov 20, 2009

I attached my Imac to the Airport and the printer to the Airport. It's a Canon Pixma MX700. The airport utility sees the printer but when I try to print, the Imac does not see the printer. I hardwired the Imac to the Airport because I assumed the connection speed woud be better. Could this be the problem? I am able to get on-line from my laptop PC so I know the thing is working. I have not tried to print from the laptop.

MacBook :: Unable To Use System With Battery / Computer Shuts Down Hwen Start From Battery

Apr 18, 2008

My battery needed replacing for a couple of months before i dropped it from about knee level onto a sidewalk. After the drop I got the not charging icon. I thought maybe the battery had just finally died. so I did not panic about the no charge. The laptop works fine when plugged in to power with the old battery on or no battery at all. Not at all when unplugged.

When I put the brand new battery on the lap top, the computer shuts down halfway through boot up. I tried holding the power button down through boot up reset, as well as removing all power (plug and battery) and holding down the power button for 10 seconds reset.

OS X :: Printing From MacBook To Vista Printer?

Dec 13, 2008

I wondered if it was in anyway possible to print wirelessly from my MacBook. Seems simple enough right? Well, the thing is I don't have a wireless printer. It's a normal inkjet Epson and it's connected via USB to my desktop which is running Vista Home Premium. Is there anyway I can somehow forward the document to my desktop and it'll start printing? Oh yes, my router is standard, it doesn't have any USB ports. Also anyone know any wireless HDDs? Time Capsules rather pricey especially in the current climate.

OS X :: MacBook Printing To Network XP Printer - Hangs On

Nov 3, 2008

I'm trying to connect my leopard macbook to a Canon Pixma MP210 that his hooked up to an XP machine. Sharing is enabled in XP on the printer and I can successfully add the printer to the mac in system preferences. I've downloaded the proper drivers from Canon's website and selected them for the printer. The problem is that when I try to execute a print job, the print queue comes up and hangs on status "printing."

Also, on the XP machine, the print queue recognizes a job is being requested but the status hangs on "spooling." The document never actually prints. Finally after a couple minutes, the print queue in the mac has an error stating: "Error Number : 311 Printer is in use or an error has occurred. If an error has occurred, eliminate the cause of the error."

OS X V10.4 :: MacBook Pro Connected To Windows Printer But Not Printing

May 12, 2012

I have a Windows XP Desktop with a Epson Stylus S21 connected to it with bonjour downloaded onto it. Using the step-by-step guides, I've managed to connected my MacBook Pro to the printer over the system and have managed to print. The only problem is, when I do send a document to print from my MacBook it only prints out a blank page with nothing printed on it. I know that the two are connected as I can send things to print, and it's not an issue with the printer as my desktop is able to print fine.

MacBook :: Printing To Network Printer - Authentication Track

Apr 27, 2009

My Macbook recognizes the IP address of the network printer on the network I'm on here at the church I work at, but I cannot print to it because it requires an authentication track. When I click file>print in an excel sheet or a word document the print screen comes up. In the drop down menu where it says "copies & pages" there should be an option for an authentication track or number, but there is not. It is simply not there. There actually should be a lot more options but there are not. I simply have a few, scheduler, summary, layout, etc. What can I do to get to the point where I can authenticate to print on that printer?

MacBook :: Change Printer Settings For Faster Printing?

Mar 29, 2012

We can't figure out how to change our printer settings to print in draft mode.  The system only allows for standard mode which is very slow printing.  Our HP Office Jet 4680 allows for draft mode printing.

MacBook Pro :: Computer Turns On For Half Second Then Shuts Off

Sep 3, 2010

Macbook pro intel core duo. My macbook is turned off, when I press the power button the light goes on and the computer starts making sounds of turning on for about half a second and than shuts off. I tried removing the battery and putting it again, I tried to hold the power button (the light flickers at one point and eventually shuts off as well after 2 seconds), and tried turning it on with the adapter plugged in and unplugged.

MacBook Pro :: GPU Panic Error - Computer Frequently Shuts Down

Jul 1, 2014

Recently my MBP retina late 2012 started crashing with the screen going all black leaving the keyboard lights on. I had to force it to restart. After a couple of attempts I could finally access the computer for about 10 min before it crashed again, during which i could see the logs. As of know it has been on for 1 hour without any issues but when I run some more hardware-intense programs it crashes. Since i bought the computer from a private person without insurance im not entitled to the 3 year warranty. 

Im getting these errors:

MacBook Pro :: Gray Progress Bar Starts And Then Computer Shuts Off

My MacBook Pro will not start. It chimes and the gray progress bar starts and then the computer shuts off. I am able to start it holding the Command +R keys and access Disk Utility. That is where it says my S.M.A.R.T. drive is "failing". I have a backup from Time Machine from a week ago. I am concerned the computer is going to die. What should I do and is my computer going to die?.

OS X :: Printing From PC To Mac With USB Printer Attached Over Network

Oct 11, 2009

I have been trying everything I can think of to get 2 PC's on our home network to print on my Canon MP610 which is connected via USB to my MacBook Pro and the two PC's recognise the printer and add it as a device but when I try to print, the message "access denied, unable to connect" is displayed. If it's of any relevance, I cannot get the PC's to access the Public folder on the MBP over the network either.

Hardware :: Printing To Shared PC Printer

Dec 25, 2009

I have already done this successfully with one PC laser printer using the built-in OS X System Preferences utilities. I have tried the CUPS method. I do not know what uname/pword combo it wants. There is only one account on this machine and no password. That combination is unacceptable to CUPS. Give me this info and I'll give CUPS another shot. Through the OS, when I get to the step of selecting the driver from the list, the driver is not listed even though. I just installed it with the original driver disk from the mfr. Is there a way to get the printer driver I installed to show up on the list of available drivers I am offered? My other printer was in the list, connected just fine, and I can print to it with no problems.

OS X :: Printing To Windows XP Network Printer Using Mac

Jul 15, 2010

Being the only Mac user in my house -however streamlined it is-, does hold a few problems. I have set up my iMac, and have happily joined my Windows home network, file sharing does work easily and neatly but as I found out the other day, printing from a Mac that is connected to a Windows based network can be very difficult. So for a long time now, I have been trying to set up my iMac (connected via WiFi) so that it prints over my home network. The printer; an EPSON TX100 is connected to the USB port in a Windows XP desktop and I have set up Printer sharing. The desktop is connected to my D-Link G604T.

I have added the printer through System Pref: Print & Fax:+:Windows tab: 'network':'computer':'printer' and have tried using both the Generic Postscript driver and the specified printer driver.

When I go ahead and print, the printer icon appears in the dock and then quickly disappears without a printout. I have replaced the ink and paper but still no luck. I have tried the methods suggested on some other threads, but none have succeeded. I would be happy to provide any extra information and try anything. Networked printing works with all Windows computers in the house including a NEC laptop, so why wont it work with a Mac?

OS X V10.4 :: Printing EPS Graphics To Non-postscript Printer

May 16, 2012

I have always used Postscript laser printers to print EPS (vector) graphics - eg from Illustrator or Quark. We recently added to our network an Epson colour photo inkjet printer. 

Much to my surprise, I just successfully printed straight from Quark a document that included some text and a (resizeable) EPS graphic. This was from a PowerPC in Classic running OS 10.4.11. A further document with a series of differently sized EPS graphics printed correctly too. There is AFAIK no Postscript engine in this printer. 

I now rather gather this may all be down to the post OS 10.4 operating system which is fielding the print file and interpreting it - thus causing my photo printer to successfully do what I thought impossible. 

Is there no need ever to buy a Postscript printer again? (The printer is an Epson PX730Wd - US name Epson Artisan 730.)

OS X :: Why Shared Printer Not Printing From IMac? (Error On XP PC)

Sep 17, 2009

Got a iMac running OS 10.6, and am wanting to print from a Samsung ML-1710P printer connected via serial port to a XP PC. Everything seems to all be communicating with each other, except I eventually get a print error on the XP machine in the print manager. Can anyone help with this?

- the computer and printer can be seen by the mac.
- when a print job is sent, the mac spools and sends it "ok"
- the XP print manager status changes to "printing" then after about 1 min changes to an error.
- the latest driver for that printer is installed on the XP machine.
- I have tried to use the Generic Postscript Printer driver, the Generic PCL Laser Printer driver and an old Mac OS10.3 driver from the Mac end. There are no newer drivers available. I have shared this successfully printer before, but only from another windows machine.

I unplugged the printer and rebooted the computer and re-plugged the printer in thinking that might cure the problem, but same message came up "printer off line". The printer shows up in the finder and I am at a loss as to a possible cure without having to buy a new printer.

Hardware :: WAN Printing Using LAN Printer, NOT USB, On Airport Extreme?

Nov 30, 2009

I was trying to set up my printer (HP 1515) so that I can print to it even when I am not on the LAN, but also using WAN. The airport extreme has now been set up for Bonjour and all that, but the HP printer is connected using an Ethernet cable, NOT USB. It seems the Airport printer sharing is made for connecting a printer to the Airport USB port, and NOT for any ethernet printers.

Is there any way I can print from outside - WAN - to my LAN printer, connected via ethernet to my airport?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Find Out The Printing Protocol Used For A Printer?

In Lion it doesn't show that information anymore. Is there a way to still find out what protocol the print queue is trying to print via?

OS X Mavericks :: Error When Printing On Network Printer

Jun 27, 2014

I am trying to connect to a windows network printer through my MacBook Air. I can connect to the printer via the windows network and can send documents to print. The document goes through to print but at the last second it says there is an error. When looking on the network windows computer, in which the printer is installed, I can see the document has gone through to print using the printer dialogue box for microsoft, but it details there is an error and the document doesn't print.

It seems that they are connected but there is still an error.Both Windows and Mac computers are up to date currently and the printer is a HP Deskjet F4180.

Sometimes my MacBook will shut off for no reason, and then it won't charge anymore. It takes a lot of effort to get it to start charging again, but I don't get it. I don't know what's wrong with it. It just started happening randomly, I don't know what to do. It's under warranty, but I wanted to see if anyone else was having this problem as well? If there's any quick fixes please let me know
