I have a Epson TM-U220 Printer. The status reads: Not Available. If I print a test page it goes to the que but does not print.

If you can browse your printer, then try to delete the printer queue and re-add it. You do this from your Mac's System Preferences, Print and Fax application.

The C6180 is connected through a wired network. Funny thing is that I can print a test page....but when I go to print the document never leaves the print queue.

I get the following message from the print queue....the retry goes from 5 seconds to 10 seconds through 30 seconds but stops at 30 seconds.

you could try to get into your system setup to check whether USB ports are disabled by default (you will probably see during system startup a brief message saying something like "Press F2 to run system setup", or perhaps some other key like F1, ESC, etc.) When you see your docs in the print queue, do you see some error/warning message associated to that job? You could make right button click on that job and see its properties. You could check whether you should restart that job or whatever else option you may find there.
As for the installation CD, you could investigate on that disk to see whether there exists a file with whatever name ended in ".PPD" (without quotes). You could use that file: in System => Admin => Printers, see the properties of the corresponding printer and then use the option "Change driver". You will be asked for your printer model or provide a .PPD file. Use the one you found in your installation CD.

Three weeks ago, I purchased a Black (No.4) and a Colour (No.5) Valuepack Cartridges for my Lexmark X2690 All-In-One printer from Refresh Cartridges/UK. After installing both cartridges, I printed a Test...

ok what should do is when you finish printing one page wait for some few mins before printing another page ok. that could help or unistall and reinstall your printer again and apply this method i just showed you. thanks

Very, very slow printing

I don't know the make/model of the printer, but I can mention a few possibilities.

1) If your printer is set for PostScript (PS) language, versus PCL , it normally takes longer to print.

2) If this printer is fairly new, check for old Printers installed that are no longer connected to the computer/network. See if there are still print jobs in the queues. A missing printer with jobs still in queue will keep polling the system and eating up processing time.

3) If this printer is a laser printer, it may have to wake-up and warm-up before printing.

Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer


if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.
