Printing from Mac os X 10.4.10

I am trying to install the print server on my Macbook. I have tried setting it up by browsing the default apple talk zone, the windows printing and browsing by IP. When selecting the printer from the apple talk browser, the print monitor says the document has printed but nothing happens.

Here was the way I got it to work on my Mac: Set up the printer with a static IP address. Then add it as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printer. Specify L2 as the queue for a USB printer. (L1 is the parallel port).

(This took me a while to figure out - I couldn't get IPP or AppleTalk to work properly).

My print server cannot be reset to the factory default for some reason. I have tried holding the reset button for 10 secs, but without luck.

I have some devices where I have to hold the reset for 20 seconds. So try holding it longer. And make sure the print server is powered up when you do it.

How do I connect to an HP LaserJet 1020?

As the Laserjet 1020 not officially supported by the OS, you will need to download and install the HP Printer Drivers 2.11 package which include the Laserjet 1022 drivers, those should allow you printing using your device.

Install the package by following the Download below:

After completing the installation go to System Preferences ' Print & Scan and click the Plus sign,
Select the listed printer and click the Print Using drop-down.
Click Select Printer Software and then select the Laserjet 1022 which should be available now.

My macbook is printing super small since I got a new hard drive a year ago. I have tried everything! Re-installing...scaling, print preview. Please help as I am driving myself crazy and don't want to...

Try checking the accessibility settings on your Macbook. You may have zoom and/or font enlargement on your screen that does not affect your printer.

Also, does this happen with all printing, or only from certain applications? Have you tried printing with a different program?

I just installed a new color cartridge for an HP 5650 Deskjet printer but it only prints in black. I'm printing from a MacBook, OS 10.6.6

Hi, Try printing whatever you were wanting to print but click the drop down arrow right next to the printer selection tab. Then you should see a drop down menu about halfway down the menu, click it and select print settings. You should see another drop down menu called color, just click it and change it from grayscale to color.
Hope this helps, Justin

My Mac wont print color to my HP printer. The color ink is full and my Dell prints fine to the printer

There is a setting in the print dialogue that allows you to set that the printer prints only in grayscale. There is a chance that you have that setting changed and it is printing in grayscale each time you print by default.

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.


· 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 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.

I think the problem is that lexmark never made this printer mac os compatible. I have one and the disk it came with was for windows only, while i have a 3300 series and that came with a disk for both windows and mac.
