My SCX-4500 won't work with Snow Leopard... also it makes a grumbly noise and only makes copies anymore... I rarely used this printer but left it turned on constantly- did I melt it or something?

Olympus P-440 doesn't work with Snow Leopard. What

The first thing that you need to do is to verify if your Olympus P-440 is if it's supported by Mac OSX 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). If yes, make sure that you've installed the correct driver for Snow Leopard.

You may check the link below:

This link contains a driver for Mac OSX. I assume that this driver will work with all OSX (starting from Tiger to Snow Leopard). If this driver will not help, you may need to contact the manufacturer, and verify the system requirements of your printer.

Thank you and good luck!

A lot of times, you can use google and search the exact problem and printer model number, I just had a similar problem with Windows, you may need to update a driver.
