Are you on a network? if no, then your printer will not have an IP assigned to it.

I suggest you try to setup your printer through Printer Setup Utility.

Windows XP (also Windows 2000/NT4):

  1. From the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes. (Windows 2000/NT4: Start menu, Settings, Printers)
  2. On the left side of the window, in the Printer Tasks section, click on the link for Add a Printer.
  3. In the Add Printer Wizard window, click Next.
  4. In the Local or Network Printer window, select Local Printer. Uncheck 'Automatically detect and install my plug-and-play printer'. Click Next.
  5. In the Select a Printer Port window, choose Create a new port. From the Type of port list, select Standard TCP/IP Port. Click Next.
  6. In the Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard window, click Next.
  7. In the Printer Name or IP Address field, enter the DNS hostname of your printer (ex: myprinter.chem.cmu.edu). The Port Name field can usually be anything you like (without spaces), like 'lp0' or 'print' or the DNS hostname. Click Next.
  8. Click Finish. It may take a few moments before the next window appears.
  9. From the Manufacturers list, select the printer model of the printer you wish to use. From the Printers list, select the model number of your printer, followed by the designation (ex: HP LaserJet 4000 Series PS). Click Next.
  10. If you are asked whether you want to keep an existing driver, select Keep existing driver, then click Next.
  11. In the Printer name field, put the DNS hostname of the printer. This is actually the display name of the printer for just this machine and can be anything, but it's a good idea to set it to the DNS name as a visual reminder that it's an IP printer that can be used from anywhere. Most IP printers also have built in web servers that display status information about the printer, so recording the DNS name here can be a reference to use when typing in the printer's web address, like http://myprinter.chem.cmu.edu.
  12. If this is the printer you will be using most often, select Yes to use this printer as your default printer; otherwise, select No. Click Next.
  13. If you are asked whether you wish to share the printer, select Do not share this printer. Click Next.
  14. When you are asked whether to print a test page, select No. Click Next.
  15. Click Finish.
  16. If you receive a message that a Microsoft digital signature was not found, click Yes to continue the installation.
  17. To check if the printer is working correctly, go to Start > Printers and Faxes. Right-click on the newly created printer and pick Properties, and choose Print Test Page.


Mac OS X:

  1. Find the printer's full DNS name using the instructions at the top of this page.
  2. Go to Applications, Utilties, Printer Setup Utility.

  4. Select IP Printing. Some inkjet printers may install their own section, like 'hp IP Printing' or 'Epson IP Printing'. If so, select that instead.
  5. Leave the printer type at its default value of LPD/LPR
  6. In the Printer Address field, put in the full DNS name off the printer, such as myprinter.chem.cmu.edu.
  7. Leave the queue name blank.
  8. Select the appropriate printer model. (If your printer model isn't listed, download and install the OS X driver for your printer from the printer vendor's website and go back to step 2)
  9. The display name of the printer can be anything, but it's a good idea to set it to the DNS name as a visual reminder that it's an IP printer that can be used from anywhere.

My hp all in one 6500 keps saying that i cant print because its not connected to a computor but it is?


If you're getting an error about the connection you have to make sure that the USB cable (if connected by USB) is plugged in correctly, or you may try reseating it.Unplug the USB cable. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the printer and plug the other end to a USB slot in the computer. Make sure that you hear a sound in the pc when you connect the USB, that means that your pc has detected something. Also try downloading a Print Diagnostic Utility from HP website, this tool is pretty useful printing probems.HP website, then click on Support and Drivers, then go to Download software and drivers, key in the product name and hit enter. Choose your OS and hit next, click on Utility and Diagnostic Tools and click on HP Print Diagnostic Utility.
If connected wirelessly, you can also try the HP Print Diagnostic Utility. If you get an error on connectivity, make sure that the printer and the computer are on the same IP address. If both have the same IP address and your pc still can't detect the printer try updating the software by downloading it from HP website.

Description
LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.

In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.

Requirements

· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.

· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer

· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)

· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:

- LaserWriter 8500
- LaserWriter 16/600 PS
- LaserWriter 12/640 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/660 PS Procedure

1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu.
2.Open up the Utilities folder
3.Now open up the Print Center
4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add.
5.On the following screen, select LPR printing.
6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address.
7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer.
8.Select the printer model.
9.The completed settings should be similar to the following:
(LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER)
10.Click on Add
11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.

I need to install HP deskjet 6940 on my Powerbook G4. I am operating on MAX OSX 10.4.6


If your printer does not appear in the Printer pop-up menu, find and install the appropriate driver. Check any CD-ROM discs included with the printer, or the website of your printer's manufacturer. Only users with an administrator account can install software.

Tip: You can also open the Printer List window from Printer Center (Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier) or the Printer Setup Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, or later).

Check the Printer menu again after installing the software. If the printer does not appear, you may need to do this:
  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your computer, plugged in, and turned on.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier, from the Printer menu in the print dialog choose Edit Printer List. The Printer List window appears.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.3 or later, choose Show Printer List from the View menu. The Printer List window appears.
  4. Click the Add Printer button.
  5. Choose USB from the first pop-up menu.
  6. Select your printer from the list.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Close the Printer List window.

How to add a network printer (AppleTalk or LPR)

Adding an AppleTalk or LPR network printer is very similar to adding a USB printer. In Step 4 above, you would choose AppleTalk or "LPR Printers using IP" from the pop-up menu. From there, the setup differs slightly.

AppleTalk printer
  • AppleTalk must be enabled in Network preferences.
  • If your network uses AppleTalk zones, choose one from a second pop-up menu that appears.
  • Make sure to avoid potential issues with AppleTalk multi-homing.

LPR printer
  • You must enter the printer's IP address or DNS name.
  • If you're printing to a queue, deselect the checkbox for "Use Default Queue on Server", then type the queue's name. If not, leave the checkbox selected.
  • You can select your printer from the Printer Model menu or leave it at Generic. In essence, are selecting a PPD file.

Question mark appears, or trouble finding a printer?

If you can't find the printer you want to add in the list of connection methods, make sure you're choosing the right connection type for your printer. Some printers may use custom input-output modules, such as "Epson AppleTalk". You may need to select one of these custom options in order to add your printer. If there's a question mark on the printer's icon, or Print Center or Print Setup Utility lists it as unsupported, check for an updated software version at the manufacturer's website, or the Mac OS X downloads page.

Tip for software installation

Your printer may appear in the printer list before manufacturer-required software is installed. If you have such a printer, remove the printer from your printer list before installing the software. Add the printer back to the list after you've installed the software.

Unable to get Xante printer to work


When I send a job to the printer via Ethernet, nothing happens on the printer. I only get a solid red light. Why?
This is an indication of a media size mismatch. Make sure that the correct media size is set on the tray to which you are printing, and try the job again.
