Question about Samsung ML-2510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

ML-2510 I got this printer a few weeks ago, and followed the directions for setting it up with my new Mac.  I have yet to be able to print anything, and I can't figure out what's wrong.  Any idea how to start troubleshooting this thing? Thanks!

Re: ML-2510

Can you do a test page to verify if you have a printer or software driver problem...

Press and hold the Cancel button for about 2 seconds.
A demo page prints out.

Make sure that the
Online LED on the
control panel lights
• If the Online LED is off, check the power
cord connection. Check the power switch.
Check the power source by plugging the
power cord into another outlet.
• If a demo page does not print, check the
paper supply in the tray.
Print a short document from a software application to verify that the computer and printer are connected and are communicating correctly.
• If the page does not print, check the cable connection between the printer and the computer.
• Check the print queue or print spooler to see if the printer has been paused.
• Check the software application to ensure
that you are using the proper printer driver
and communication port.

The printer does not print well - when I attempt to print anything it just comes out in rows of black and white shades. It is brand new (model:ML-191x252x) and everything is set up properly. I don't know...

If it is brand new as you say then do not try to repair it by your own (you will lose your guarantee) bring it back to the dealer you purchased it and ask him to give you a replacement!!!

Samsung ML-2510 will not print from MAC OS on Macbook

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
OK, first of all, you can stop worrying about solution #3, this printer is a USB or Parallel, there is no networking on this printer so no possibility of an AppleTalk connection.
You say you have downloaded the latest version of the driver from the Samsung website.
And, the Mac is connected DIRECTLY to the printer via USB.... ( It won't work if it's connected to a PC and then shared.. well it might work but I have not been able to make this kind of connection work...)
Well, if this is the case and you are unable to print while the PC prints fine, I expect that it is over the Parallel port or do you plug and un-plug between the Mac and PC...
It might be that the printer needs to reset after switching between the Mac and the PC, Shut off the Printer, I mean really, shut it down, unplug it for 30 seconds then connect it to the Mac and restart the Mac and start up the printer....
If it still does not work, do you have another Mac you can connect to for testing?
Also, the first test should not be FireFox, open the Text Edit app and type ( TEST ) and just print that...
Give that a whirl..

Click add.

That's it! You're good to go!

Samsung ML-2510 will not print from MAC OS on Macbook

I had the same problem and found the solution on the Apple discussion boards. Apparently, OSX 10.4 installs the printer as a Lexmark 510 series, not a Samsung ML-2510.
Just add a new printer and change the type from Lexmark 510 series to ML-2510 series.
Worked a charm for me!
