Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer
I have gotten this to print from the PC side, but it will not print from the MAC side. The software is installed. When I ask it to print, the light on the printer starts flashing and then the job stops. I am printing from Firefox. I just tried it from Word after deleting the other documents. It told me there are stopped jobs and I told it to go ahead anyway because I had deleted the stopped jobs. It seriously tried to print, whirring and flashing, but then the job stopped again. More than that, as others have said, it looks like it has not really let go of the stopped jobs, although they are no longer listed. This is pretty maddening!! Hope someone has an idea. I did use the CD to install the printer, although, and this may be relevant, I tried it first without it. Thanks steinph
I had the same problem and found the solution on the Apple discussion boards. Apparently, OSX 10.4 installs the printer as a Lexmark 510 series, not a Samsung ML-2510.
Just add a new printer and change the type from Lexmark 510 series to ML-2510 series.
Worked a charm for me!

Hello, I have tried the updated printer driver for the Samsung ML-2510. It still would not print from my mac mini. However, with the appletalk advice that you have suggested, it works fine. Many thanks! ASharma

Hi I finally called Samsung. It turns out that there is an updated printer driver for OS 10.4 and that is the reason it would not work. They talked me thru the download and after we went in circles a few times it worked. Thanks!!!!

I am assuming you are connecting over your network (you haven't said) and if you are you may well find that the only way for you to use this printer with a Mac is to connect it via Apple Talk. we'll get to that in a moment but always start with the simplest answer first so go back in to the print queue and make sure the middle button says "Stop Jobs" if it says "Start Jobs" you need to click it. Next, From finder click Go, then click Utilities, then double-click Printer Setup Utility and see what printers are listed and what printer is set up as the default (the one in bold), next click on the Samsung printer and click Get Info. From the Info panel's pull-down list select Printer Model and check that it is using the correct driver, you should have a pull-down list of available drivers. If non of this helps you may well find that setting up the printer using AppleTalk resolves it. As old and dated as AppleTalk may seem it is the only way to connect to several laser printers, especially if you are sending PostScript jobs. Start by opening System Preferences and click Network, next double-click the network device you are using and click on the AppleTalk tab, now select Make AppleTalk Active and make sure that Configure: is set to Automatically. Now delete the printer from Printer Setup Utility and click Add Printer, you should now see both the original printer and a Samsung AppleTalk printer listed so select the AppleTalk printer. That should be all the work that is required to set this up, now all that you need to do is test it. Post back if you need anymore advice on this.
