Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 5430 DL Laser Printer

No longer prints in color

Last week it worked fine and now it no longer prints in color. I thought it might be the Mac driver, but it prints in black and white from the test page as well as from a PC. It also makes a horrid noise when it is starting up or preparing to print, not when warming up. That noise seems to be coming from under the right side where the transfer roller is or just above where the wires go to whatever is under the top right where the paper feeds out of the printer. Any suggestions or solutions will be wonderful.

My HP 3015P will no longer print PDF files. This is a new issue. Anyone have a solution?

I'm having the same problem with three networked P3015 printers on a Windows 2003 server. They stopped printing PDF files last week. The universal PS driver from HP works, but it's a pretty ugly solution. I'd like to know why the PCL driver just stopped working.
Btw, we're printing from Acrobat 9.4.2. Word, Excel, and other office printing is fine still.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink

The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Prints only color ink nothing in black

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson 880 not printing in color

Was gone for the weekend.

Yes, the grayscale option gives you black and white or black tank printing only.

If you go to start menu, control panel, printers, right click your printer there is the option to print test page. In the upper left should be the windows logo in color. If you don't have that and you know you've removed the protective tape for the bottom of the color cartridges and when doing the nozzle checks "you have color?", then you probably need to reinstall your printer driver.

Is your printer connected via a USB cable, a thin cable with a flat connector at the PC and a square connector at the printer. Then, let me know. Send me your printer model from the back of the printer model sticker and I'll send you the instructions and a link to the current driver as well as a program link to download a system registry clean up utility that's free to use and can clean up from an uninstall of your printer.

Epson 880 not printing in color

Found the answer. For some reason, my computer accepted a Mac driver. It called the printer Epson Stylus COLOR 880 (M). I went back to the original installation disk; thereafter, I had two printers, one without M, one with M, and deleted the M printer. All is working fine now.

Mac and hp 7780

I had the exact same problem but never could get my Mac to work wirelessly with my 7780 even though the box said it was wireless and worked with OSX....false advertising.  Enough of the problem though.
I set up my printer through my Airport Extreme network.  That solution worked sporadically.  I would get error messages that the computer could not open the printer.  I found clicking the "pause" print button and then clicking "resume" would often work but needless to say that became a pain.
So, my IT guy set the printer up through it's IP address over my airport extreme network.  The printed has worked flawlessly for the last week since this change but.....the fax no longer works and now the scanner takes about 3 minutes per page.
Overall, I have been a die hard HP fan for years but after the nightmares with the L7780, I will NEVER use another HP product.  The item cost me about $459 but I have lost or spent over $5,000 in diminished productivity and IT charges and it STILL DOESN'T WORK AS ADVERTISED!

i think you have a corrupted driver- you have to uninstall driver first

1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.

Go to print and fax and delete the printer name as well
