Question about Lexmark C510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Persistent "network host busy" error

After using the printer successfully for awhile, the printer stopped working, and when I open the printer icon, it says "attempting to connect to on host 9100. Network host busy; will retry in 30 seconds."

We are running the printer from a USB connection on our router (Apple Time Capsule/Airport). No connections have changed. I've unplugged and restarted the airport, printer, and cable modem, with no change. It happens from every application and from both house computers (on which is plugged into the network by Ethernet).

After working with Lexmark tech support (which is excellent, by the way), it became clear that the problem is with my network (Airport/Time Capsule) and not the printer. (The printer works when plugged directly into my computer.)

Hp all in one 6180 won't print


The ink cartridges included in the box are used to set up the printer. This type of ink cartridge is called a “host” cartridge. Once the printer has completed device initialization, they are marked as regular “trade” cartridges. This error only occurs if the printer has finished the device initialization process and one or more of the ink supplies inserted into the printer are a “host” supply.

Solution: The indicated ink cartridge(s) cannot be used after the device has undergone first-time setup. Once the product displays the message ' The following ink cartridges cannot be used after device initialization and must be replaced ', the designated host cartridge(s) (indicated by the color icon(s) on the display) that were rejected should be discarded or recycled and never used again. Replace the ink cartridge(s) with the appropriate “trade” ink cartridges for the HP All-in-One.

Scan cannot be performed

I also had the same problem with HP Officejet 6310 and after trying all the solutions that I could find on the web, I was almost giving up. Then I found this on HP's IT Resource Center website (author J.Eqbal) and tried it and finally it scanned without the error message.
This error happens only in Network connections.
Get the Ip address of the Printer and open the EWS page by typing i.e 192.168.x.x.x is the IP address of the Printer.
On the EWS page click on Network and get the host name and copy it.
go to the following location C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc...inside etc you will find the host file open it using notepad.
Underneath local host
there might be the Ip address and host name ..which will be different from the current host name...change the Ip address and host name the file.
Try to will definitely work.

Problem in scanner when scan

Try adding the scanner's IP address in the scnhosts file in the TWAIN folder. Format is similar to the windows hosts file. You'll see a commented out sample entry, just modify that to suit your needs.

This may or may not work for you; we had it working under this configuration but then it stopped for no apparent reason. also note that scanrouter isn't supported under vista. Only advice I've been given so far is to revert to sending scans via SMTP - not ideal!

Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer


if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.
