Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

HP7210 Installation to MacOSX 10.5.5. No Device Found

It was all working fine.  Then two days ago my Mac stopped talking to my HP7210 AllinOne printer.  Having fully uninstalled and attempted reinstall (including making sure Mac not connected to printer until search for device is about to commence) the HP Set Assistant hits a wall when attempting to Select Device.  The options are USB or TCP/IP.  Neither works and the end result is "No Devices Found.  I'm at a loss what to do now.  The only thing I can think of is that the cable is faulty.  Please help.

I suspect you are right that it's the USB cable. If the printer does TCP/IP you should try plugging an Ethernet cable from the printer to an empty port in your router. Get the IP from the printer configuration page and print to the IP using a general postscript driver. If that doesn't work, it's the printer...if it does you can start troubleshooting back to the machine.

Cannot find driver/software for my dusty Canon imageCLASS MF3240 on mac OS 10.7 Lion?


There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

Does a Gestetner 2212 work with a Mac OSX Version 10.6.7


If your device cames with PS, yes you can.
With MacOs You need Post Script to print with any printer. I know that the latest versions of Mac already print with PCL. I can not tell you if your version is the latest.
Although you can take a look on this web site http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php.
See you!

Works perfectly but will not print at all. Copies fine.


Hello Michelle,

The fact the pages are only coming out blank when you print from the computer points to either the driver or the cable connection.

We’ll start by addressing the drivers.
Let’s remove the printer first.

  1. Click on the apple icon in the top left.
  2. Select “system preferences”
  3. Select “print and fax”
  4. Highlight the MFC-7420 and press the “-“ icon.

Now we need to remove the driver package.

  1. Open your Macintosh HD (in the finder)
  2. Go to Libraryè printer
  3. Drag the brother folder into the trash bin.
  4. Empty the trash bin
    NOTE: you may need to restart your computer before you can empty the trash bin
  5. Restart your computer after the trash bin has been emptied
    NOTE: You have to restart even if you had to restart once before.

Now you will want to install new fresh drivers.
Please choose the link for your OS

Mac 10.6 (snow leopard)
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/firmware_hardware/brotherprinterdriversformacosxv106.html

Mac 10.5 (Leopard)
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/firmware_hardware/brotherprinterdriver11.html

For versions of Mac 10.4 or earlier, you do not need these drivers, they will be installed automatically.

Now you need to install the brother drivers for printing.
Use this link, choose your version of Mac then click on “search”
On the next page, you want to use the CUPS driver download.

Please come back and vote or leave some feedback, it will let me know whether it helped so I can improve and it will encourage me to keep on helping.

Thanks,

Pat

I need an HP LaserJet driver that is compatible with MAC OS X that will support HP LaserJet 1100


Can you post your solution on the same page as your problem and comments?

I found a solution but saw that you got it solved before I could post and this is what I found http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/MacOSX/hpijs

I found it on the Linux OpenPrinting site but this package works with Mac OS X as well. It also works with more than 776 printers.

This is an HPIJS for Mac OS X and the page gives package details describing the drivers as well as installation instructions. I work with HP computers at my job but have not yet had a chance to try this out on the MAC operating systems.

I'm glad you fixed...what a feeling! LOL!
