Question about Samsung ML-2510 Laser Printer
I have gotten this to print from the PC side, but it will not print from the MAC side. The software is installed. When I ask it to print, the light on the printer starts flashing and then the job stops. I am printing from Firefox. I just tried it from Word after deleting the other documents. It told me there are stopped jobs and I told it to go ahead anyway because I had deleted the stopped jobs. It seriously tried to print, whirring and flashing, but then the job stopped again. More than that, as others have said, it looks like it has not really let go of the stopped jobs, although they are no longer listed. This is pretty maddening!! Hope someone has an idea. I did use the CD to install the printer, although, and this may be relevant, I tried it first without it. Thanks steinph My problem is with a mac mini, just as one of the users that tried the appletalk solution (solution #3). But it doesn't work for me. I have a mac mini, leopard (10.5) and the printer is the samsung ml-2510. I tried with the cd, I downloaded the driver as of today. Then I tried appletalk just as suggested by solution #3 (I activated appletalk, then I removed the printer and tried to add a new one but the only one available is the ml-2510 usb. there is no choice for a "Samsung AppleTalk printer" just as mentionned in the message. please help!!! firstname.lastname@example.org
The first thing I would suggest is to Repair Permissions on your Mac. Do this by starting up from your Mac OS CD or DVD, then selecting Utilities from the menu at the top of the screen. Launch Disk Utility. Once Disk Utility is running, select your hard drive from the left column and then click the "repair" tab. Click "Repair permissions"
Restart your Mac.
Try printing again.
Hope this helps!

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
OK, first of all, you can stop worrying about solution #3, this printer is a USB or Parallel, there is no networking on this printer so no possibility of an AppleTalk connection.
You say you have downloaded the latest version of the driver from the Samsung website.
And, the Mac is connected DIRECTLY to the printer via USB.... ( It won't work if it's connected to a PC and then shared.. well it might work but I have not been able to make this kind of connection work...)
Well, if this is the case and you are unable to print while the PC prints fine, I expect that it is over the Parallel port or do you plug and un-plug between the Mac and PC...
It might be that the printer needs to reset after switching between the Mac and the PC, Shut off the Printer, I mean really, shut it down, unplug it for 30 seconds then connect it to the Mac and restart the Mac and start up the printer....
If it still does not work, do you have another Mac you can connect to for testing?
Also, the first test should not be FireFox, open the Text Edit app and type ( TEST ) and just print that...
Give that a whirl..
