Look for the drivers for F300 series - you may need to download them from HP's site. They're generic, but they work - unless you're trying to print through Airport!

My canon mg5220 printer is not printing anything. It just says error when the pop screen pops up. It doesn't give me an error code.


Hi Savannah,
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.

Here's how:
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Print & Fax.
  • Select the printer you want to remove,
  • Click the - (minus) button at the bottom of the panel.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.

How to add a printer

To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.

To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
7d955333-f928-4e87-9d2a-9a1442c03a9a.jpg
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane
Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.

f0bba592-74a4-4b2b-ad7f-7ed1cd883689.png
From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
  1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will add the printer driver for you.
    • Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer driver is selected, then the printing software may not be available from Apple. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.
    • Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print Queue.
  2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.
  3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon (LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See your printer's manual or support documentation for information about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.
  4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is often needed to see Windows printer shares.

Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Hi i need 2 know wat the ip address is for hp deskjet F380 is


hi cooldude,

this printer comes with a USB port for connecting to your computer. Unless you have the printer connected to an airport express base station, the printer will not have an IP address.

Let me know what you want to do and I can help you further. Do you want to share the printer so you can print from other PCs over your network?

Hope this helps

I'm running Mac OS 10.6 on my portable and the MFC-7840W won't priint. I've update all the drivers but when I try to print, the bluetooth window always says, can't find printer. HELP.


Hello,

The MFC-7840W does not support bluetooth connection.
It can connect wireless if you have a wireless network or connect wireless directly to your airport on the mac.

Since it is not printing, please follow these steps.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Reboot the computer.
6. Go back to Print and Fax (step 1 & 2)
7. Click on the + icon to add a printer
8. Click on the "default" tab and add the printer.

If you do not see the printer in this list, then printer is not connected.

If you do see the printer in the list but you still can not print, you will need to remove the drivers completely and reinstall.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Go to Mac HD \ Library \ Printers
6. move the brother folder to the trash bin
7. Empty the trash bin.
NOTE: You may need to reboot the computer before you can empty the trash.
8. Once the trash is empty, reboot the computer.

Now you need to install the following drivers.

I have a HP F380 All in One Deskjet Printer Mac OS 10.5.8 Printing for over 2 years using Airport Scanning I need to connect by usb Issue: I reset the settings and can't find the driver I used to...


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.
First, Uninstall your HP F380 and then again reinstall it.

If your printer is connected via usb to airport extreme you will have to download and install the following.
1. espgs-7.07.1.ppc.dmg

2. hpijs-foomatic-2.0.2.ppc.dmg


Do this by going to The Linux Foundation (http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/MacOSX/hpijs)


Install in the order listed above, they both must be installed for this to work.


Then do the following:


1. Go to > system preferences > print & fax

2. Click "+" to add a printer

3. The HP F380 will be listed with the connection type "Bonjour"

4. Highlight this printer

5. At the bottom of the window you will see the option for "Print Using" and than you can choose something from the drop down menu.

6. Scroll down to "HP" and choose that

7. This now propagates a window full of HP printers including the HP F380 drivers that you installed above.

8. Scroll down until you see "HP F380 FOOTMATIC" and highlight this.

9. Click "add".

That's it, your done and it should work.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

MX310 - Wireless network printer used on an Apple Airport Extreme


Here's what worked for me: I had everything set with my wireless network which included an Airport Extreme base station and two Airport Express units to extend range. I still couldn't plug and play with my printer. 1. You have to plug your printer into the Airport Express, turn it on, then select a document to print from your computer. 2. Select print from the pulldown menu (or select 'command P' on the keyboard). 3. When the print dialog window appears, go to the "Printer:" selection bar near the top of the window and select "print & fax preferences..." 4. This opens a new window, "print & fax." Near the bottom left of this window just below an icon list of your printers are a "+" button and a "-" button right next to each other. 5. Click "+". Yet another window opens which will reveal a list with your printer on it. 6. If you don't see your printer, click the "default" icon in the top left hand corner of the new window. 7. Select your printer, then click "add" on the bottom right hand corner of the window. The window will close automatically and return you to the "print & fax" window. 8. You should now see your printer in the list. You may say, "My printer was already in the list," but that's not good enough. The process you just went through enabled the computer to detect it on your network. You may want to use the "-" button to remove any previously listed printers from the list in the "print & fax" window. 9. Now you should be able to close the "print & fax" window and get some wireless printing done.

HP DESKJET380 NOT RESPONDING WHEN CLICK ON PRINT


After sitting in power save mode for a long period of time the printer might not function properly. This happens when the printer is plugged into a surge protector. Unplug from the surge protector and plug directly into the wall power socket.


Step 1:

Please try to print Self test Print from the Printer (without PC ie. remove the USB cable from the PC)

Step 2:
If the Self test Print is Ok, try to connect your printer to PC
and Print Test Page
Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes >> Select your Printer F380
then Right click Properties and Click on "Print Test Page"
If this prints Ok then all the connections you have made are correct
In case, it does not print then please check your USB cable try to change it

Step 3:
You can uninstall your Driver
and install the new driver, to download the driver for F380 All in One Printer Please click the below link
Choose appropriate Operating System
