I can't print anything

Hi, my name is Gilberto. I have a Mac and I can't print because when I try the printer says ''your printer is currently offline'' and I don't understand why because I have it connected with a USB cable.

Do the install with the network cable, DELETE the printer but not the contol files, do a manual install. The Brother software is screwy. Read the tech manual.

Go to "IP" in the add printer section. It is a "globe" at the top of the page. In address put the address of your printer there and name the printer at the bottom. Worked for me.

I can't install my printer I have a mac What can I do?


Hi Good day!!
Here are the step to install printer in your Mac:

Open up System Preferences. Select Print & Fax.
Click on the + button to add a printer.
Go to http://lpr.byu.edu/printers/.
Click the desired printer.
Click the Properties link on the left of the page.
Select and copy the last half of the Network Name (everything after http://lpr.byu.edu/).
In this example, you would copy printers/N362ESCD/.printer.
Go back to the Printer Browser.
Select the IP printing tab at the top of the window.
From the Protocol: drop-down menu, choose Internet Printing Protocol - IPP.
In the Address: box type lpr.byu.edu:80.
In the Queue: box enter what you copied from the previous step.
Type the name you want the printer to have in the Name: box.
Choose Generic PostScript Printer from the Print Using: drop down.
Click Add.
The printer should be added to the printer list and is now ready to be printed to.

Printer has worked fine for years with my pc's. Still prints the test page fine but wont' print since I switched to mac. Installed the print only file from hp website a couple times. Actually it does...


It sounds like the driver provided by the manufacturer may have a glitch in it. I would recommend sharing the printer to the MAC:

Add the Shared Printer to Your Mac Launch System Preferences by clicking its icon in the Dock.

Click the ‘Print & Fax’ icon in the System Preferences window.

The Print & Fax window will display a list of currently configured printers and faxes that your Mac can use.

Click the plus (+) sign, located just below the list of installed printers.

The printer browser window will appear.

Click the ‘Windows’ toolbar icon.

Click the workgroup name in the first column of the three-pane printer browser window.

Click the computer name of the Windows machine that has the shared printer connected to it.

You may be asked to enter a user name and password for the computer you selected in the step above.

Select the printer you configured for sharing from the list of printers in the third column of the three-pane window.

From the Print Using dropdown menu, select the driver that the printer needs. The Generic PostScript Printer driver will work for almost all PostScript printers, but if you have a specific driver for the printer, click ‘Select a driver to use’ in the dropdown menu, and select the driver.

Click the ‘Add’ button.

Use the Default Printer dropdown menu to set the printer you want to use most often. The Print & Fax preferences pane tends to set the most recently added printer as the default, but you can easily change that by selecting a different printer.

Have just bought a Pogo printer. It printed once via Bluetooth but doesn't print via Bluetooth now. Removed battery for an hour- still not printing via Bluetooth.Can you help please?


If you are printing from a PC/Mac via Bluetooth, It won't accept anything other than Jpg's and also if the file name is too long (or if the file has multiple .'s in the name as I just found out)

IMac connection to lanier ld122


Does this printer have the PS option installed? If not you will be unable to print even if you clear up the network issue.

As far as network goes is it currently connected and working with other PCs?
Mac printing is easily setup by typing the IP address of equip in the queue box upon setup. I believe the default queue name is "print" all lower case. If IP in unable to work properly make sure lanier has appletalk turned on and setup printer using appletalk.

Again if the machine doesn't have Postscript option you won't be able to print anything.

Hope this helps,

PSC 2175 wont work with print server


Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

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.
