Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Print overrun I have a Brother HL2140 on an iMac. It worked perfectly until I upgraded with Snow Leopard, after which it always went to 'print overrun' and would not print a whole document. I re-loaded the driver and it worked again, until today, after upgrading iWorks. Is it a simple matter to reload the driver again? Is the problem always going to happen when Apple upgrade their software? Phillip

Probably the automatic upgrades of drivers and so ..cause the problem ...it might just replace your driver with a version they consider updated...and which just dont work with your ....printer ...try to reinstall the driver ( clean ) and if it works ..it means that this is the problem ...

You're not going to be happy with this answer:

Nikon has formally sworn off doing ANY future software updates for their scanners. They stopped at 10.4 (pre-Leopard)

See

I have imac. and i want to change his operating


Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/ On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.

HP C4580 scan and Snow Leopard


Heads up..
HP Scanner software (ex. HP device manager, HP Scan Pro) no longer works in Snow Leopard OS since it's already preloaded. There are three methods for you to scan.
1. Preview
2.Image Capture
2.Scan under Print and Fax

Just installed Apple new "Snow Leopard" and now my Kodak 8500 printer is not printing.


Hi there

Was it working before the Snow Leopard? If so, was Snow Leopard a new installation or an upgrade over an existing one?

Thanks

Brother is totally fucked up under Leopard, found so far no chance to fix it.  Brother's own printer drivers are 10.4 only -- lame
