Question about HP LaserJet 2200 Printer

1 Answer

Only printing when I disconnect the USB cable

My HP2200d only prints when I disconnect the USB cable from my Intel based IMac OS X 10.5.5. This is my first Mac. The printer installed fine and work OK on my old Dell running Windows 2000 (it was time for a new computer!)

Any recommendations?

Thanks.

VERY INTERESTING! lol. Not a Lot i know to try, But just re install the printer, I know on most HP Printers they require the printer to be unplugged while installing, But on Mac i hear they automatically install, So it HAS to be plugged in... just delete the printer driver and try to reinstall. Hope this helps!

Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.


A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper


I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

You can log on to the hp site and get the current driver/printer software for your printer. Get the mac os version and install via usb. Download and install then restart your imac... then attempt a print...
Should work fine with an iMac.

ANy solution to the lack of fuji drivers for new macs and OS?


4500N can't be recognize with an Intel Mac, because the Appletalk doesn't work. My solution to print: I've got a powerPC as an interface between Imac intel and fuji network adapter. The pictro driver is installed on both machines. On The Intel, The Appletalk is connected on Airport. On the PowerPc, The Appletalk is connected on Ethernet. Ethernet cable between powerPC and pictro network adapter. SCSI2 cable between PNA and the 4500. Of course, auto calibrating + eye-one color calibrating. WELL!! it works.

Cannot print from my Intel based MAcBook Pro on my Epson Stylus Photo R1800


mac book pro has a usb cable right? you can actually use it to connect to the r2400 and then dont use a guten driver use the downloadable driver for r2400 for leopard instead

Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers for your product are available for download from the Epson support site.

1. Go to the Epson support website (www.epson.com/support).

2. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system.

Note: Be sure to select the appropriate driver compatible with your system: PowerPC or Intel Intel based.

HI I HAVE JUST REPLACED THE INK IN MY CANON MP 760 PRINTER. ON THE PRINTER ITSELF HOWEVER, AFTER OPENING A DOCUMENT (WORD) TO PRINT, IT FAILS TO PRINT. THE PAPER IS STILL FED TROUGH AS THOUGH IT IS...


Check that is defined as default printer in 'installed printer' in Windows, and that you are not sending documents in printout to another non connected printer present in Windows under 'installed printers'.

Unplug completely computer from power socket and from USB for 10 minutes, to get rid of electrostatic problems on USB. Plug everything back and restart.

Check the USB cable, replace USB cable with a different one to check if it was the cable.

Uninstall printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (delete). Disconnect printer from USB, reinstall printer from printer software CD or downloaded driver. Connect printer to usb only after installing, or when explicitly required by software, this is important

Here is link to driver download, put your windows version in select OS box.

Lexmark P6350 and New Imac intel compatibility


I'm part way there.  I rang Lexmark and they say P6350 can only work with Mac OS up to 10.4 whereas I'm using 10.5.2.  I'm not yet fully convinced it can't be made to work and a knowledgeable friend will be round later.  I may get back to you. Porphyry

I had the same problem. Try the driver from the Gutenprint site, search google for Gutenprint. It worked for me.
