Question about Sharp MX-C401 Laser Printer Toner Cartridges

Open Question

How do I setup my mac (os 10.7.5) to the network printer in our building (MX-C401)?

I have downloaded the driver from Sharp's website for this printer. I have added the printer using the IP address that my windows machine uses. When I added the printer in System Preferences I selected the appropriate driver. But when I print, the document just stays in the queue and it says "The printer is busy" Any suggestions?

I couldn't find a solution anywhere on web. Neither could I find any Sharp technical support whom I could contact in Ireland. So I made a decision to puchase a new one.

SOURCE: Sharp MX-4501N Mac drivers 1.1

You are using Bonjour to print to the MX-4501N which uses a generic post script driver. To fix this, you must install the printer using the proper driver from Sharp. For a first time install, download the drivers, install the drivers, restart, and install the printer as an IP printer, specify the IP address, it should be using the LDP (Line Direct Printing) protocol, and specify any additional optonal accessories you have on your MX-4501N. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: i'm adding this printer/copier on a new computer

OK, the ping just tells you the computer can talk to the printers through the network connection. You need to enter the Printer/Copiers Configuration and make sure it is setup to print from the TCP/IP connection. Some of these will let you setup the connection but will not use it unless you tell it to.

SOURCE: We have the Sharp EL-1850P

I don't believe there are any troubleshooting DIY guides.

The only thing I can think of is that something got into the printing drum, like a piece of paper, or a thread and that is interfering with the proper alignment of the wheels.

Hard to say without seeing the actual calculator.

How to setup my computer to print on sharp mx 2300n?


You should follow instructions to install the driver for operative sistem. You should look for the driver on installation disk which comes with the printer.
i.e: if you are using windows 8 you should look for the Win8 drivers.
If your printer was released BEFORE the OS and doesn't have the driver, you should look at Sharp's website or do a search for it.

There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

I have been given a lexmark x75, with no instructions how do i install this


It would be better if you install the software/driver first in your computer. The software also shows you the instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Here are the drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on the driver compatible with your computer's operating system.
- Lexmark X75 AIO Printer driver for Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.1.5, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.2.1, Mac OS X 10.2.8, Mac OS X 10.3.x, and Mac OS X 10.4.x.
- Custom Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000
- Driver for Microsoft Windows XP
These are the only available drivers. That means the printer is not compatible with Mac 10.5, Mac 10.6, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
For additional information, here's the Setup Sheet (Lexmark X74, X75) and the User's Guide (Lexmark X74, X75) . Hope this helps.

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.
