Duplex Printing with a Mac: Canon mp210

I know this has been asked more than once on many a mac forum, but nothing so far has worked for me.

My operating system is Mac OS X and I have a Canon mp210 series printer with all the latest drivers installed from the Canon website, but the double-sided print option is still greyed out and unavailable. I read somewhere that there's supposed to be a Duplex Printing & Margins option from the drop-down list when the Print Dialog box is opened, but I don't have that option.

On another forum, I read something about selecting Printer & Fax Preferences from the Print Dialog box. When I press the Drivers tab after, none of the newly installed drivers are listed. Are they supposed to be visible? The only driver listed is the Canon mp210 series driver.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm going insane from wasting ridiculous amounts of paper and refuse to print anything until I find a solution.

Thanks

SOURCE: Canon MP210 with Mac OS X 10.4.11 problems with printing docs

Hi

I have OS-X 10.4.11 and had the same issue; any printing just spat out blank pages.

I installed the following driver which completely resolved the issue:

There's a similar one for 10.5 that I haven't tested, to be found here:

If you use 10.5 and this driver works for you, please let others know by posting here, too.

Good Luck

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One printer, Scanner, Copier will not scan with Mac OS 10.4. The button flashes for a few seconds, then stops and nothing happens. No image appears on my computer screen.


All lot of those printers came with two separate driver's disc. Make sure that you are installing the correct for the mac and not windows. If you are you can go to the hp website and do a search on there website for the driver for mac operating system.

Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

I can't install the cd rom on my computer i have a macproduct is pixma mp480


I don't know if I understood your problem correctly: you have a Canon Pixma MP480 and you want to install it in a computer with MAC OS and the CD that came with the printer is for Windows systems?

CANON has drivers and software available for your printer and MAC OS X. You can dowload them from PIXMA MP480 Photo All-In-One-Printer support homepage .

On that page, clickon the "Drivers & Downloads" tab and then select your operating system to get a list of compatible drivers, sofware and manuals.
Download the printer and scanner drivers compatible with your system, from "Drivers" section and select and download the software you need from the 'Software section".
For help and troubleshooting installation issues, click on 'Support & Service".
If I misunderstood your post and you have a different problem, please comment and I will try to help more.

Choose the XP drivers, they should still work if Vista ones are not available. If they do not, then Lexmark will not be making drivers forward for that model of printer and it'll be time to go get a new inexpensive inkjet.

Scanner won't operate on HP PSC1410 All in one with Leopard


The HP CD and web download were created before Mac OS X v10.5 development and release so there may be problems with the install process. They are yet to release new package to suit check here for details and updates

Also check this info on mac 10.5 with this printer.
