Re: my printer will not print

The only solution I have ever found that worked is to unplug the printer, restart the computer, and plug it back in. Upgrading the driver to HP Image Zone 9.1.4 has stopped this from happening.

Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.

A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

Reinstall the old cartrige that you were replacing and see if it is recognized. If it is then the problem is your new cartridge not the printer. Take the new cartridge back to vendor and get them to replace it, which they should do if they are reputable.

Can not scan to mac computer from hp c7280. What should I do? I need to know how to scan hp c7280 to my imac computer. I receive the message "refer to device documentation to troubleshoot." ...

There are multiple ways to use the scanner on your Mac. If your Mac recognizes the scanner as a device, then you can use the scan from the Mac using Preview or Image Capture apps (in your Applications folder). You can also use Picasa by going to the import function and finding the scanner and try it from there. If you are having issues getting the HP scanner to recognize the Apple device. Here is the official website for the download from HP. Apple drivers sometimes do the job of getting the scanner to be recognized, but the official drivers might do better.

Epson r320 printer w/ no advance settings when linked w/ new IMAC

I had the same problem when installing my Epson R300 onto my new iMac (Snow Leopard). The first install used the newest online driver from Epson. The printer symptoms were exactly like yours. Then I installed the Apple driver updates. It was seamless and now the printer settings can be accessed. Perhaps if you uninstalled (read about that on the Epson site first) and then downloaded the new factory driver, followed by the Apple update which will further update files, you might have some luck. Just a guess on my part. Best wishes.

Printer & network not seeing each other

Buy a HP and you will not have this problem. Yes Brother is aware of the issue and may have a fix on their website but typically it is a driver conflict with Apple when using different printing devices other than HP.
