SOURCE: HP 3100 LaserJet All-in-one Print Driver for Vista OS

It doesn't work in share mode either...It prints the pages incorrectly. I have the hp3100 connected to my xp pc and my vista laptop connects to it via printer sharing on my network. the xp prints fine but the vista doesn't print ok due to lack of driver support for it.

I have to resort to print to pdf and then take the pdf to my xp for printing. Its a half *** solution but if anybody out there made his/her own driver please post.

SOURCE: I have upgraded the operating

Lion has just appeared and because Apple has never divulged its characteristics to all the other hardware manufacturers, they didn't had enough time to design new drivers. Unfortunately your printer is an very old model that hasn't had new drivers for OSX since Panther, which means that the possibility of a new driver for Lion is extremely remote.
So you are now left with just 2 options:
1 - you downgrade your Mac to the previous version of OSX
or
2 - you get a new printer.

5mm vertical gap dell 1720dn


Any time an imaging drum is replaced on a 1700, 1710, or 1720 model dell laser printer, you must reset
the photoconductor count. The following procedure illustrates how this is done:
1. Open the front access cover
2. Press and HOLD the Cancel Button (Red X)
3. When you see the LED's 'Chase' turn the printer off
4. Close the access cover, and turn the printer back on
5. Press the Continue Button (Green Triangle) to print a settings report
6. Under the section 'Cartridge Information', locate the item 'PHOTOCONDUCTOR COUNT=0K' indicating 'Zero Thousands'.
s now been reset, and you should now be able to print now ok

Printer problem with OS X 10.9 Mavericks


THE SAMSUNG CLP-310 is fully supported by Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The printer driver (like all nowadays) is supplied by Apple not the manufacturer. If you installed drivers/software from a disk, you need to put that disk back in and run the uninstaller. Be sure the printer is removed from the printer list in the Printing system prerefernce pane and then unplug and replug in the printer. If it does not show up automatically you may need to add it manually in the system preferences window (no big deal.)

Dell 1720 printer prints junk first page with only ?Z@ troofpaN.


This is a issue with the printer drive that windows is holding, not the printer. To Un-install your printer drive the correct way, goto add/remove programs, and un-install the printer there, then open up your printer control panel and right click where there is no printer. In the right click menu click server properties, then click the drivers tab, then remove the 1720/1720dn drivers there. A system restart will be necessary in most cases before it will let you remove the drivers(the Microsoft print spooler is to blame here for that). If this still doesn't work for you, then install a hp laserjet 4 driver and see if it does the same thing. if not, then it is something with the driver/spooler, if so, then it is the MCU of the printer, and you might want to look at buying a new printer.

Dell 1720 flashinf replace drum- error.


The second link was the helpful information. Also, to cut through all of that --

If you need to reset the counter:

1. Remove drum kit with toner

2. Make sure all print jobs are flushed otherwise whatever has been sent and not printed will come spewing out.

3. Hold down CANCEL Button until all lights flash through.

4. Slide the drum kit and toner properly into the Printer.

done.

Normally to fix a printer that is printing gibberish, uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers will fix this issue. Another thing that can contribute to gibberish print is using a USB cable that is too long.

With this particular problem (prints Zen), one solve is to uninstall any Dell toner management software. This is particularly true if you are running Vista and hooked up by USB. To uninstall the toner management software (Vista OS), go to control panel>programs>programs and feature>uninstall a program. From this list choose Dell software, choose a customized uninstall, and then choose anything that has to do with Dell toner management.

New Intel MacPro + Epson SP R1800 printer + OSX 10.5.2 = Nightmare.


I managed to solve this problem by, probably, doing what I should've done in the first place: Deleting the printer from the print queue and starting again from scratch. 
I read the following instructions from a message from Epson and it pointed me in the right direction. It sounds obvious now, but when you think you've tried everything and you've started to pull your hair out, you can overlook what is staring you in the face.


Message from Epson:
If your output is faint or if the driver settings and/or features are
missing, your system may have automatically added the printer using the
Gutenprint driver. Many Epson drivers are provided with Leopard but the
driver for your printer needs to be downloaded from the Epson website.

Determine Which Driver is Currently Being Used
1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open
System Preferences.
2. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.
3. In the list of printers on the left side of the Print & Fax window,
click once on your Epson printer to select it.
4. Check the name of the driver being used; it is displayed in the center
of the Print & Fax window next to “Kind”.
5. If the driver name displayed next to “Kind” is Gutenprint, the incorrect
driver is being used. Follow the steps in the next section to select the
correct driver.

Selecting the Correct Driver
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Delete the print queue and remove the printer from Print & Fax by
clicking on the minus button under the list of printers. Click OK to
confirm the removal.
3. Go to the Epson support website (www.epson.com/support).
4. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard
operating system.
5. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions
to install the printer driver.
6. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open
System Preferences. 


The message ended there. 
If anyone out there is having a similar problem to me, then I hope this thread helps. 
All the best. logan
