No, but you can get a printer server and connect your mac to the printer server via ethernet cable and your printer to the server via usb.

USB printing problems


Hi,
If the USB cable is too long, you may have problems... I would guess the cable length should be shorter than 10 to 15 feet.

More likely, the driver is not looking at the USB port...
Go to the driver "printer... properties... ports" and try "DOT or USB" ports...
If yoy see an "LPT!" or "IP_1" selected, it is not channeling the print job to the USB port.

LPT1 is a parallel port and the IP_1 is an ethernet port!

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

When I unplug my 2610 printer to move it then plug it back in, it does not work. Twice before this happened and somehow I fixed it when it went to the print wizard. This time, I cannot fix it. I downloaded...


First disconnect the printers USB cable from the PC. Go to the control panel and open add or remove programs. Find the installed software for your 2610 printer and select to uninstall the software. When completed restart the PC. Install the latest software for your printer from HP.com and during the installation it should prompt you when its time to connect the printer. When prompted, connect the USB cable from the printer to the PC and power up the printer. You should see a message indicating that your computer has found new hardware and is installing the necessary software to complete the installation. Call HP support if these steps don't resolve the issue.

Error Message Error 0x886a6b72


I contacted www.hp.com and after a while we decided it is fried.
Lightening had hit my cable box and must have got the printer too.
All it will do is flash even after trying to reset to factory settings.
Thanks for the offer

HP officejet d135 delayed printing


Both the printer and the computer are machines and it solely depends upon the speed of the computer as to in how much time thye data is transmitted to the prinetr to print. Check the speed of the processor, RAM,USB port(if connected with usb cable), length of the usb cable /ethernet cable, distance of the router from the computer and the printer, size of the dcument/image.
