SOURCE: problems printing on c250 from mac leopard

Have you tried hiding the Doc in the finder?

Some programs will print VERY slowly s the application icon is showing while printing.

Are you using a Fiery? If so, have you installed the CUPS filter from their website?

The lates Mac OS has totally redone the way they communicate with printers and how they handle security communications.
Start looking in the Mac webpage for fixes or solutions, it is a system based issue from Mac.

SOURCE: networking a mac and a xp computer with a kodak 5500 printer


Try a Silex SX-2000 print server - these are different from your average because although they can operate as a normal print server (which the Kodak printer driver will not support - its problem is it looks for a directly connected printer) its primary function is as a networked USB sharing device (one at a time of course !)

Printing works great using the "Printing Auto Connect", because each PC/Mac will connect, print, then disconnect automatically (freeing the printer for other users/virtual sessions).

The only drawback I've found (when tested with Vista) is the scanning is hit and miss. "Scan to" works some of the time, Windows "WIA" scanning works most of the time, Kodaks own software doesn't work at all (probably because its cheating and looking directly for the attached USB device).

This is certainly a print solution though and unlike some print servers, it can support more than one device if you have it, using a USB hub (I use mine to TCP/IP print to a Dymo label printer as well)

I tried the Belkin AIO print server first (available in Europe certainly) an OEM version of the Edimax unit but I'd steer clear of this - hardware is nice (smaller than the Silex) but the software is awful, causing many crashes and blue-screens in Windows.

SOURCE: MAC problem with km-3050

What MAC OS are you using? I don't remember for OS 9 and earlier but if you are using OS X I can help you out. First make sure you are using the latest version of the print driver. When you open a document to print and select the Kyocera printer you will see the print dialog box. You need to look under the printer specific options to find the job accounting. I believe it is under set 2.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Can't print from my mac to my canon mp980 wireless printer

Sounds like when you added xp you inadvertently installed new print driver on server.
Try rolling back driver. But may drop xp from printing.

Best solution network printer to router bypass server. Will require hard wire from printer to router. disconnect from server may need network card for printer.

I have a tplink PS310U MFC print server. I have managed to connect using a PC but there is no software for the Mac OS X. I am running Yosemite and can connect to the server for printing. However I can

If you can't scan then it sounds as if your computer doesn't have the appropriate driver installed for scanning. There are a lot of drivers and other downloads here:
including a scanner driver for MAC OS 10.3 to 10.7. Since Yosemite is 10.10, I don't know if this would work for you, but I think it your most promising solution.
It may be worth disconnecting the printer and connecting it directly to the computer. If it scans and prints when directly connected then it is likely that the print server is causing the problem and if as you say there is no Mac software for it you may be in a no-win situation. The fact that you can print through it however does mean there is hope, because I have found this page which is described as manual installation of the server on Mac OS here
FAQ ID 347 How to install Print Server manually on MAC OS
but the OS is 10.6.4 so, I'm not sure.
Not as helpful as I had hoped but perhaps you can get something from this screed

I have a OKI C710 printer that I bought from Radio Shack in Mayfield and they set it to just print in monochrome and I am wanting it to print in color again but don't know how to reset it back

They probably changed the setting in your operating system. Do you have windows or apple? Beyond that, do you recall if they made this change at the store on the printer itself, or were they tinkering with your PC when they made it monochrome?

I cannot connect to my 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless (3crwps10075-us) Print Server 3crwps10075

Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.

Please post back and let me know if this helps!

I'm not familiar with this printer, but my Samsung colour laser has an option in the driver for choosing 'color' or 'grayscale' - make sure it's not something as basic as that for starters.

My printer is not printing in color its a oki c6100 in only prints in black and white

Oki appear to only have made a B6100 model printer, this is actually classed as a workgroup mono printer and only prints in black and white, It is not a colour printer here in the UK. I think the US may have this as a C6100 and I think it is similar to the 5000 series of printers. the user manual can be found at . I would print a Menu Map and check the settings and also check the driver setting is not set to B/W printing.

My Mac wont print color to my HP printer. The color ink is full and my Dell prints fine to the printer

There is a setting in the print dialogue that allows you to set that the printer prints only in grayscale. There is a chance that you have that setting changed and it is printing in grayscale each time you print by default.
