Question about Samsung ML 2152W Laser Printer

Open Question

Printer reboots after first page

Several problems.
1. Printer resets itself after the first try to print. Once it is warm, seems to be better
2. The print is wavy, almost like italics, but not italics.
3. Wireless is very erratic, network cable a little less erratic and USB better. Meaning, on wireless, much of the time it loses the connection and even with the ethernet cable, seem like the connection goes away. I am now connected to the USB cable and it stays connected, but still has that reset problem. The wireless network has worked using the current setting for over a year, and I have checked them for changes and they are correctly set.

Printer has about 25000 pages on it.

SOURCE: Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

Setting Up a Network Printer

Preparation

In order to install a network printer, you must know your printer's Manufacturer, Model Name, and IP Address.

The Manufacturer and Model Name can be found on the printer case, an example is HP LaserJet 4000N. The IP Address can be found on a label attached to the printer. An example of the IP Address is 141.161.888.999. If your printer does not have a label indicating the IP Address, or you can't identify what model it is, please call your printer manufacturer.

Setting Up a Network Printer

1. Click on the Start button, then click Control Panel, then click Printers and Faxes, then click Add Printer.

2. A new Add Printer Wizard window opens. Click Next to start.

3. Select Local printer attached to this computer. Make sure Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer is NOT checked.

4. Then click Next to continue.

5. We will create a new port for your network printer. Select Create a new port.

6. Beside Type of Port, click on the down arrow, then click on Standard TCP/IP Port.

7. Click Next to continue.

8. A new Add Printer Port Wizard will open. Click Next to continue.

9. You must now type your printer's IP Address in the Printer Name or IP Address field.

10. The Port Name will automatically be filled when you enter the IP Address. Do not change the Port Name.

11. Click Next to continue.

12. IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, then you will see the screen on the right. This means that the IP Address for the printer is NOT available on the network. Select the Back button and make sure you entered the correct IP Address. Check to see that your network printer is powered on and displays a 'ready' status.

13. IF YOU DID NOT HAVE PROBLEMS, Windows XP will scan the network to find your printer's IP Address. This may take a few seconds. Select Finish to continue.

14. You must now select the printer's manufacturer and model. Windows XP will automatically select the detected manufacturer and printer driver. Normally, you will not have to change this selection.

15. OPTIONAL: If your printer is listed but you have more than one printer model to choose from, please select the model with PS, if available.

16. IF your network printer is NOT automatically detected, select the Windows Update button to find the proper software drivers.

Note: If your printer is not automatically recognized using Windows Update, please call your Help Desk.

17. You will be prompted to confirm the selected printer driver. Make sure Keep existing driver is selected, then click Next to continue.

18. You will be prompted to assign the printer a Name. You can use the default name, or add more info to indicate the printer location, such as My Office, Hallway, Foyer, Room 222, etc.

19. Select Yes if you want to use the printer as the default printer. Click Next to continue.

20. You will be prompted to share the network printer. Do NOT share the network printer.

21. Click Next to continue.

22. You will be prompted to print a test page. Select Yes, then click Next.

23. Check your network printer to make sure your page printed. Select Yes when prompted to confirm a successful test page.

24. Click on the Finish button to complete the Add Printer Wizard.

Congratulations! If your test page printed, you have successfully installed the network printer.

Note: If you had problems and did not get a test page, please call your printer manufacturer.

SOURCE: I want to connect my SCX 4500w to a new network.

You could try having your Samsung SCX-4500 print out a network configuration sheet. It will have the printer's IP address, default gateway etc.:

1) Press the <Menu> button on your printer panel
2) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network" is displayed
3) Press the <OK> button
4) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network Info" is displayed
5) Press the <OK> button

Your printer should print out a network configuration sheet. The IP of the printer appears in the TCP/IP information on this configuration sheet.

Note: Your printer's IP assignment should be "Static" not "DHCP" (You may skip the following steps if your printer's IP assignment is already "Static")

To change your IP assignment from DHCP to Static:

1) Open up your Windows browser
2) Type in the printer's IP address in the address (location) bar of your browser:

Example: http://192.160.0.100 (use the real IP you found above from the network information sheet)

3) SyncThru should load - Click "Network Admin" or "Network Settings"
4) Click on the "TCP/IP" option on the left side
5) Change the IP address METHOD to "Static"
6) Click <Apply>, then <OK> or <Exit>

Now your printer is ready to be added to your network. You have the information you need from your network configuration sheet. Your install should now proceed smoothly.

I hope this information was helpful!

Can you delete your printer from your pc and reload it? mine hangs up once in a while too. Just weird gremlins as sometimes it's perfect.

Prints on partial page of an 81/2 x 11 photo paper. Prints OK letters fm word.


Instead of using the Letter or factory 8 1/2 x 11 page set up, create a custom page size for 8 1/2x11 and use that in your app for the page set up. Double check your page orientation and the size of the photo you are printing. It sounds like it may be trying to tile the photo because it's too large for the page size.

My printer is printing but i cant scan my documents - no compatible printer installed


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software (used to scan documents, convert into PDF file or create multiple pages into 1 file). The software is available on the installation disc that came with the printer.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to scan a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Page is not printing completely


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer.

However, if you're trying print but the print status screen only goes partial, try to follow the steps below to fix the issue:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh. Try print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Printer wont print


Try the simple solution first. Uninstall the printer, reboot and reinstall. See if you can print a test page from the printer itself to make sure it still works period. If you can't print the self test page (which is the printer talking to itself) the computer won't be any better.

Strange printing issue.., need assistance ASAP!!


when it receives the test page and doesn't react

1-are you sure it is set correctly go to the properties setting under device settings is everything ok.
2-I suspect his driver is bad, try to reinstall.\
3-you can try to do a cold reset, although I don't think it will do anything since it's mainly one user problem.
