Hello, it seems like your system has a corrupted preference file, or something has been deleted. For best results, I would recommend to do an update of your system. If this doesn't work, you can try to repair the systems permissions in Applications --> utilities --> disk utility, and hit "SOS" and select your drive then click on "repair permissions". Reboot the computer.
If this doesnt help, I would recommend to reinstall the system using the Leopard DVD

My canon mg5220 printer is not printing anything. It just says error when the pop screen pops up. It doesn't give me an error code.


Hi Savannah,
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.

Here's how:
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Print & Fax.
  • Select the printer you want to remove,
  • Click the - (minus) button at the bottom of the panel.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.

How to add a printer

To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.

To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
7d955333-f928-4e87-9d2a-9a1442c03a9a.jpg
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane
Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.

f0bba592-74a4-4b2b-ad7f-7ed1cd883689.png
From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
  1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will add the printer driver for you.
    • Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer driver is selected, then the printing software may not be available from Apple. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.
    • Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print Queue.
  2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.
  3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon (LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See your printer's manual or support documentation for information about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.
  4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is often needed to see Windows printer shares.

1f910aff-58d6-4e30-95c5-3a1d991f1945.png
Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Hi,

Download appropriate drivers from the printer manufacturer's website.
This is the web link. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=219&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3752459#N199

  1. Open "System Preferences" on your Mac by clicking on the icon in the Dock.

  2. Go to the "Print & Fax" control panel underneath the "Hardware" heading.

  3. Click on the plus icon on the left side of the control panel window.

  4. Go to the "IP" tab at the top of the pop-up window and then select "Internet Protocol IPP" from the list of available protocols.

  5. Type in your wireless printer's IP address and queue name.

  6. Select the correct printer driver from the "Print Using" drop-down menu.

  7. Click the "Add" button to finish setting up the wireless printer. The printer will now show up as an available device the next time you print a document.
I hope this works for you. Goodluck!

    I have a Mac w/Snow Leopard. I cannot get to hp.com\support to download drivers for an Office Jet 7780. The Mac recognizes it as a printer but not as a scanner.


    As from this link , the drivers for most HP printers are already built-in to Snow Leopard. Thus, they didn't recommend reinstalling driver from your HP printer CD. Here are some excerpts regarding scanning feature on Snow Leopard from the link: Scanning: The Scanning interface is now built into Snow Leopard and supported with the Apple Image Capture application. Instructions follow. NOTE: HP Scan Pro software (from Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5) is not supported in Snow Leopard. The HP icon for HP Device Manager still in the dock after upgrade is not functional and should be removed. NOTE: Scan support from pushing the Scan button on the printer is not supported with this version of the scan interface built into Snow Leopard. Scan functionality is supported by scanning directly from the computer.
    ** there are methods on how you can scan on Snow Leopard from the link that I've given above. But I'll paste here Method 3:

    Method three: Scan from Print & Fax > Printer browser
    1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences .
    2. Click Print & Fax .
    3. In the list of printers on the left side of the dialog, select the HP All-in-One to view the options in the Print & Fax window.
    4. Click the Scan tab, and then click Open Scanner . The Printer Browser window appears.
    5. Click the Scan icon at top right of the toolbar to launch scanning. The scan interface opens. Click Show Details to view settings and options.
    Important Gotcha: If the Scan or Print icons do not appear in the Printer Browser window toolbar, you need to delete the current HP printer queue and add a new one, as follows:
    1. Close the Printer Browser window to return to the Print & Fax preference pane. Or, go directly to the System Preferences > Print & Fax pane.
    2. Select your HP printer in the list on the left.
    3. Click the - sign at the bottom of the list to delete the product from the list.
    4. Click the + sign at the bottom of the list to add the product back to the list.
    5. Select your HP printer, and then click Add to create a new print queue. The next time you open thePrinter Browser window, the Print and Scan icons should appear in the toolbar, providing access to Image Capture.

    Installing printer to mac.


    On Mac, You have no silly popups when you print something, instead you'll just see the printer icon in the dock, or bouncing if it needs your attention, if you installed the drivers, and you can print, and all other functions work, that's all that matters. Search Apple or your manufactures website if you want additional scanning / faxing software if needed. Also, info about your printer is found in System Preferences --> Printers and Faxes (or similar name) and double click your printer, other wise, use the buttons below for other options.

    Canon imagePROGRAF W7250


    I did not see that there was a response on Apple's support site that adds to the previous post I mentioned. Combing the steps from the two posts, I was able to get our W7250 to print from Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

    Here are the steps I took to get a networked Canon imagePROGRAF 7250 to work with a Mac running Leopard :

    1. Download garo34 print driver from Canon's support site here.
    2. Download the iPF610/iP710 Leopard print driver from Canon here.
    3. Double-click on the garo34_osx.hqx file that you downloaded.
    4. A folder named Driver is created; open it and double click on "GARO Installer for X".
    5. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
    6. When the GARO Installer for X window appears, click on Continue.
    7. Click Continue.
    8. Click Continue.
    9. Click Agree.
    10. Click Install.
    11. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
    12. When your system has restarted, double-click on the iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10.hqx file you downloaded.
    13. A folder named iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10 is created; open it and double-click on "iPF Driver Installer X".
    14. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
    15. When the iPF Installer X window appears, click on Continue.
    16. Click Agree.
    17. Click Install.
    18. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
    19. When your system has restarted, click on the System Preferences icon on your Dock or select System Preferences from the Apple pull-down menu.
    20. When the System Preferences window appears, click on the Print & Fax icon.
    21. Click on the + Button underneath the Printers column.
    22. Another window will appear; click on the "More Printers" icon.
    23. A drop-down window appears; select Canon IP (GARO) from the pull-down menu if not already selected.
    24. In the "Printer's Address:" field, enter the IP address of your Canon W7250 printer (e.g. 192.168.1.2).
    25.In the "Queue Name:" field, enter a name for your printer (e.g. W7250).
    26. Click on Add.
    27. The W7250 is now your default printer. If you want another printer to be the default, change it in the Print & Fax preference pane.
