Network printing from a mac computer to sharp mx 2300n printer

So I have problem when I am trying to network print with mac computer to sharp mx 2300n printer. My mac can find sharp mx 2300n printer, but when I send file to be printed sharp mx 2300n says that he hasn't got a single file that needs to be printed.

so where is problem. I have mac os x 10.5.4 as my operating system.

note I have also windows xp computer and it can print with out problems at all. So why my mac computer cannot print?

    I have tried printing via Appletalk and IP - with the same result. The print queue on my Mac clears and noting comes out of the copier.

    Unless you're a fan of bloatware or spyware, don't **EVER** download drivers for **ANYTHING** from **ANYWHERE** but the vendor's website. In this instance, go to www.sharpusa.com and do a search for your printer by model number. DriverUpdate forces you to install an alternative software update mechanism that I've found just slows my computer down. Plus, it doesn't work on a Mac, so the previous poster, if they weren't a robot, didn't read the original post.

Here's a new solution that works. When adding the printer, choose "Generic PCL Printer". This will allow you to print from your Mac to the Sharp Printer without buying the PostScript chip/kit for the printer.

    I would never guess. I spent half a day trying to figure this out (hate Mac by the way). The solution above did the trick for me. Thanks

The problem is that in order to print from the Mac OS environment, the MX 2300N color copier requires the use and installation of a PS3 expansion kit. Otherwise it cannot interpret the post script information sent to it from your Mac. Without the PS3 expansion kit, jobs will go to the printer and then disappear or even not make it there at all. I hope this was usefull.

You have to buy a post script authorization code from your sharp dealer. It's around $700-$800. I just had that problem with my Mac (10.5.7) The Sharp rep just came and put the code in and I downloaded the driver from the sharp website and it worked. I guess sometimes it works just with the driver download from the website - which wasn't the case for me. The sharp dealer said it works about 50% of the time. Good luck!

The circumference of a circle is 47.1 feet. What is the diameter of the circle?


The circumference of a circle is C=2 * pi * r or C= pi * d.

What do we know? C=47.1 and pi.

What are we trying to calculate? d

Put what we know in the equation and solve for d.

47.1 = pi * d

To isolate d, we have to divide both sides by pi.

47.1
------ = d
pi

I get 14.99' or approximately 15' as the diameter.

Good luck,
Paul
