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!

It sounds to me that you haven't installed the correct driver. Visit sharp.co.uk and download the PS driver from the download centre. Hope this helps.

For a Mac to print to the Sharp MX-2300N the Postscript Kit (MX-PKX1) has to be installed on the copier. If that is not installed you will not get any mac to print to it.

When was the first mx-2300N distributed where having some print driver issues wondering if its that old to have issue tho


The MX-2300 is only a few years old. If you are having print driver issues it could be the pc or the copier. Think back to what might have changed on your network when the issues started. Have you run any windows updates ? (could cause an issue) Has the driver become corrupted? (reload driver - check www.sharp-usa.com for any updated drivers). Are you using a PCL or PS driver ? Are you having problems with a particular computer or is everyone having a problem ? Can you narrow it down to a particular program or document type? Updating to the new Adobe reader 9 has caused some printing issues - try reverting back to ver 8. Are you experiencing any other kind of general network issue? slow network or intermittent signal drops (losing connection).

We have a spooling problem. The sharp mx-2300n just says "ripping" and 20% complete but won't move from there and print anything. Can cancel print job from Mac but won't stop anything at the printer end....


Go into the Job review mode and highlight the pending print job (note: it may be stuck in processing). You should then get the option to delete the job.

Make sure that the pending print job is also cleared from the network print queue. They can sit in the queue and be persistent on processing, even after you've cleared the copier. Clear the queue prior to deleting the job on the copier.

If this doesn't, disconnect the copier from your network and try the above steps again, then reboot the copier and reconnect it to your network.

If you're trying to print out Adobe-based web pages from the internet, this may be what's causing your copier to jam up. There's known coding anomalies with Adobe-embedded documents on web pages. Trying to directly print from the web page can stall or lock up the print process.

OurSharp MX 2300N printer is used as a share printer, wont print


Chances are when you changed ISP's that network IP's changed and your IT will need to put one into your copier that's compatible with your present network setup.

You'll also need to make sure all work PC's have their printer drivers changed to reflect the new IP address for the copier, or it won't print.
