I would first try going to the link below and get the correct drivers for the unit.

I just installed snow leopard for mac and now my computer won't print using my Samsung SCX 4521F printer


I am glad to HELP YOU!

This is a common issue for the people who use printers/scanners made for Windows platforms on Mac OSX platforms...
I took a look at the User Manual from Samsung's site. It lists the printer Emulation as SPL (Samsung Printer Language). I'd do a try with the samsung-gdi drivers from linuxprinting.org [HERE]. Be sure to install ESP Ghostscript also. I think the PPDs in that download are pretty much all the same. You might want to try a couple of them if the first choice doesn't get anything from the printer.

If that works, then it might be possible to alter the 4521F PPD. Sometimes that doesn't work as well as one might think. There are frequently limitations in the driver. The Samsung supplied PPD may fail in some or all circumstances.
Also, the support page of Samsung [related to printers & co.] is HERE.

GOOD LUCK!

I have brother MFC-7420 printer which was working fine on my mac pc, now all of a sudden it has stopped printing or scanning and says printer offline


Try a new data cable. Make sure there are no error messages on the printer itself and that it is on.

If you are using a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Check that a known working device works in the ports. Try uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it. The drivers are available here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc7420_all . Select your OS, then language and click Search.

Check the device status and the USB status. (I know how to do this in Windows but forget the Mac specifics.)

I hope this helps.

My imac doesnt read the printer


Hello,

You would need to completely uninstall the first installation of the printer and reinstall it allover again.

From mac leopard cannot print duplex on minolta qms 3100 printer


Hello, sorry you are having problems,
OK, are you sure your printer supports duplex printing and if you are sure you have the right driver installed, this is how you print in duplex mode on a Mac.
Open the document you want to print, Hit cmd+p to get the print dialogue window you should see this: 46da167.png

Notice you have the option of two sided printing in the same line as # of copies.
If you do not have this option in 10.5.6, then you might have the wrong driver, N.B. you must be sure to select the proper driver when you are creating the printer in the Print and Fax preference. Another way to ensure you have the driver properly installed, go to the manufacturer's website and download the Mac Driver Installer and run the installer, delete the printer you created and then re-create the printer again it should auto-recognize the printer..
What is the Printer Make and Model?

You should extract the file to the directory you want and run it. You should just extract it to the desktop temporally so you can find it easily.

All The Best,
