I cannot print on my Gestetner DSm516pf printer using my Mac

MacOS does not support PCL driver (only the latest versions of MacOs support it). You need to install the PS (PostScript) Driver but for that your machine needs to have PS installed to.
This is optional on several models.
If you really what to print with your Mac and extract all functionalists you have to put this optional.
You could go around the problem by installing in Your Mac a virtual machine with Windows...
Hope this helps

I can't print on the Gestetner DMS516pf because there is no driver for mac Any solutions

MacOs just print with PS (PostScript).
Probably your machine do not have it (moustly because it is extra and it is to expensive)
But you can download from a web sit called "Gutenprint for Mac OS X" (make a search on Goggle and you will find it) a generic driver for PCL printers
You will not be able to take full advantage of the machine but... work.

You can also take a look on this web site:

I didnt try it but Looks like there is a printer driver that will work with any PCL printer. Just have to install the HP ijs driver.

Gestetner DSM616 no network config

Sounds like you don't have a print or print/scan option in stalled. All machines come with network port but only works if option is intalled. You can check if you have the option installed, maybe just not activated. At the back just abouve the network port there is a cover that covers 2 sd card slots. If the is no sd card installed you will not be able to print to the machine. If the is a sd card installed contact me again and i will help with activation

Gestetner DSc224 starts to print black strips inside colorpages

the printer in the service program has a option for the printer to do a process control on selected number of copies that number for your machine should be lower because you print about 150 duplex pages an that is 300 single pages so go in the service menu and set the process control on some 30 pages to be done .
Follow the next procedure:
- For to enter the service mode:
1. Press the clear modes key(the yellow key)
2. Type “107” at the numeric keypad.
3. Press the clear/stop key(red key)
and hold it down until the screen
display changes (for about 3 seconds).
4. Touch “Copy Sp” on the touch screen.
In the upper right corner on the touch screen has a key named [Sp Direct],touch that key and enter with the numeric key pad the numbers:3003 and on he screen will appear [Lubricant Interval] set the interval on 30 pages and press the "#" key for to confirm the value. After that for to return to normal mode press the exit key on the touch screen several times.
Also do the [maintenance -clean/adjust] option once after 1000 or 500 pages printed. Because this is a office machine and when you print on her a lot of pages per day the machine start to get dirty.
