Question about HP Photosmart C4180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer isn't connected but I can't figure out why not. Am on a Mac Powerbook, using HP Photosmart C4480 printer. The menu says the printer is "paused" and when I hit resume, it reverts to pause. I plugged in the cable. I'm sharing the printer with my daughter's computer, but hers is completely disconnected and shows no printer added -- and won't offer any (also a Mac laptop.) Any suggestions? Should I reload the software? Thanks

SOURCE: OKI B4600 Printer will not print = error - paused

Does it have a control panel or buttons on the printer itself?

If so, are any of them blinking or red?

Sometimes an error will cause a pause in the printer and you have to press one of the buttons to get it to start back up again.

This is the link to the manuf. website. I did a search on your model, theres a few so i guessed. but the manuals are available along with drivers.

I suggest you go and update them and go through the PDF and see if there is anything partaining to this issue.

I went through the PDF a bit and didnt see anything partaining to the PAUSE issue but try going through and see if anything is it.

On the printer icon on the bottom right of your task bar, right click on the printer icon and see if you can select CANCEL print job, then try unpausing it. Also, power off and then power back on and see if that clears it.

You may have to un-install the printer and re-install it and update the drivers to clear it.

Sometimes a Print job will get stuck in que when theres a jam or something and it wont continue till the issue is resolved, then you open and close the top cover and that resets it, it rechecks then continues.

Good luck.

SOURCE: HP 2840 printer pause will not resume

uninstall your printer and then re-install it that should fix your issue,it could be a bad version of an updated driver that is causing the problem

SOURCE: Printer keeps pausing itself!!

dev_24ind: The parallel port cannot be used for printing by default. Heaps of people have made this mistake. You need a N Boot Rom installed and N system software. Almost certainly you don't.
Get a Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 for IR3300 (contains N Boot Rom and NIC aka ethernet port). A technician can install this and update system software and you will be able to print. You will be able to print over a network (which is the preffered option) use Remote User Interface and Pull Scan using Canon Network ScanGear (google it).

How can I scan to the Mac


It will depend on a few things:

The type of printer/scanner you have (HP, Canon, Lexmark, etc) and the operating system installed on the Mac.

You can find the operating system number by clicking on the Apple Menu (top left corner of the screen) and pressing "About This Mac". In the center of this window it will say "version 10.5.8 or 10.6.2 or 10.something)".

If it's 10.5.8 - that means you are running Leopard, and you may have to download updated printer drivers from the maker of your printer.

If it's 10.6 - update to 10.6.2 (apple menu > software update).

If it's 10.6.2 - restart the computer and disconnect the scanner. Restart it and connect it. Snow Leopard should discover the correct drivers automatically.

After that, all scanning is done in the Image Capture.app (located within Applications > Utilities.

Happy scanning!

I just got a hp photosmart c4480 printer and it makes black and white copies, but I can't figure out how to print in black and white like when I am on a web site.


OK, Whe you select Print from the File Menu and the Print window opens, selct the Color tab.

There should be an option to Print in Grayscale. Check the box beside it and click OK at the bottom. Then back at the Print window, click Print.

(Note: If this option is not on the Color tab, or you do not have a color tab, look on the Advanced tab for the same thing.)

Need additional help...use the Comment link.

Thanks for using Fixya.
