It's a Driver issue. You need to reset the printing system by deleting the current printer and re-adding it, like this:

  1. Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences .
  2. Select Print & Scan.
  3. Right-click (or Ctrl + click) your product in the Printers list in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system .
  4. Click OK to confirm the reset.
  5. Type your user Name and Password .
  6. Click OK . The printing system resets.
  7. Next go to the Library\Printers folder and move the Lexmark folder to the trash.
  8. Under Print & Scan, click the plus sign and re-add the printer.
  9. The drivers should be reinstalled automatically.

my safari program on my labtop will not stay up


Hello Heather, thank you for contacting Fixya.com for your Apple product support question, I am Terry, Sr. Mac Support Specialist glad to be of service.


Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue with your Safari web browser:

• From your desktop, click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

• From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Home from the drop-down menu. This will take you to your Home folder.

• Locate and open the Library folder

• Within Library folder look for the Preferences folder and open it.

• Locate and remove to the Trash, these files:
com.apple.Safari.plist

Once you have removed these files, then click the back button on your open Finder window. This will return you to the Library view.

• Locate and Trash the folder entitled Caches

Once you have done that, close all windows, click on the Apple menu icon located in the upper left corner of your screen and select Logout <username>, so you can log out of your user account.

*Once you are logged out, simply log back in. This actions will restore all the files and folders you just trashed, with new copies of each of them.

*Now attempt access Safari and see if it launches normally.

Please let me know if this procedure helps.

Thank you.

Regards,
