Well you need to install the printer drivers all over again.add a printer will not work here as it is a concern with the printer drives.So try uninstalling all the printer drivers completely from the computer from the control panel or the device manager and then reinstall them all over again.It should work.

if you want a technician to do the entire troubleshooting for you.You may get in touch with

My canon mg5220 printer is not printing anything. It just says error when the pop screen pops up. It doesn't give me an error code.


Hi Savannah,
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.

Here's how:
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Print & Fax.
  • Select the printer you want to remove,
  • Click the - (minus) button at the bottom of the panel.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.

How to add a printer

To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.

To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
7d955333-f928-4e87-9d2a-9a1442c03a9a.jpg
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane
Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.

f0bba592-74a4-4b2b-ad7f-7ed1cd883689.png
From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
  1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will add the printer driver for you.
    • Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer driver is selected, then the printing software may not be available from Apple. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.
    • Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print Queue.
  2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.
  3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon (LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See your printer's manual or support documentation for information about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.
  4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is often needed to see Windows printer shares.

1f910aff-58d6-4e30-95c5-3a1d991f1945.png
Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Here's a quick summary of what's new for printing in Snow Leopard (read below for more details):
  • Apple's Software Update will automatically provide you with third-party printer software and updates.
  • "Nearby Printers" is a list of available printers that will appear right inside your printer dialog box. Adding a nearby printer is just a selection away.
  • You can simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created.
  • You can create a PDF document from any application and have an automated workflow process it.
Before you connect your printer
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.
  • If you are upgrading from Mac OS X v10.5, see "Upgrading Print Queues..." in the additional information section below.

HP 4550 PRINTER PROBLEM


Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers and add a printer. Select it as a network printer, and stop it searching (unless it finds it of course - which sounds unlikely!) Then click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
Choose to add a printer using the IP or hostname, and click next.
Type in the IP address of the printer. This can be found by printing out the network configuration page from the printer. The port will be filled in for you. Click next.
The printer should now be added.

Need to install my Canon S900 photo printer to new laptop running windows vista SP1


Hi,
Adding a printer in Vista is fairly similar to the process used in Windows XP, with only a few subtle differences. If your new printer is connected to a USB port, it will be automatically detected and you won’t have to do anything further. Vista will automatically install the printer drivers and configure the printer for you. The logical printer will appear within the Printers folder where you can make any changes to its configurable properties. In some cases, you may have to manually install the printer using the Add Printer Wizard. Once you physically attach the printer to your computer and turn it on, you can complete the steps listed below.
  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Click Hardware and Sound then Printers.
  3. Click Add a printer. This launches the Add Printer Wizard.
  4. Click Add a local printer.
  5. Use the drop down arrow to select the port. Click Next.
  6. Select the Manufacturer of your printer and the model. Click Next. If your printer is not listed, click the Have Disk button. You’ll need to locate the manufacturer-supplied drivers on your computer or disk.
  7. Type in a name for the printer. This is the name that will appear under the printer icon in the Printers folder. Click Next.
  8. If you want to print a test page, click the Print a test page button. Click Next.
  9. Click Finish at the Summary window.
To download the drivers, Please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Select the operating system you are using and click on the download to download the driver.

Error Number : 300 The printer does not respond. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer.


I had this problem with a Canon IP5200R connecting to a Mac Book Pro running Leopard. I had setup the printer as per instructions using the setup utility, could print a test page using the utils but could not print from an app.

My solution was to delete the printer (System Prefs > Print & Fax) listed in the system preferences and then re-add by clicking the '+' in the pref panel, then selecting 'More Printers' from the popup window. If you have the printer connected to the network correctly it should show up and you can simply re-add it. My printing now works correctly.

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.

Printers whose drivers or PPDs are included with Mac OS X
Additional Information See these articles for lists of printer drivers and PPD files included with Mac OS X:
