If your printer is a USB connection. your MAC will pick it up automatically. If it is not USB, Run the disc that came with the printer.

Unplug USB connection from MAC, restart, plug back in, to to your homepage and hit print. This SHOULD fix the problem.

It's a Driver issue. You need to reset the printing system by deleting the current printer and re-adding it, like this:

  1. Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences .
  2. Select Print & Scan.
  3. Right-click (or Ctrl + click) your product in the Printers list in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system .
  4. Click OK to confirm the reset.
  5. Type your user Name and Password .
  6. Click OK . The printing system resets.
  7. Next go to the Library\Printers folder and move the Lexmark folder to the trash.
  8. Under Print & Scan, click the plus sign and re-add the printer.
  9. The drivers should be reinstalled automatically.

I get a message that my HP 5500 is not connected to my new iMac but the printer says it is connected. How to solve?

The printer says that it is connected correctly to the router because the router is aware of it and has assigned to it an IP address on the network.
The computer on the other hand does not know that there is a printer. Not finding one (or not knowing where to look for it) the computer reports that the printer is offline.
You must install the printer drivers on the computer.

Hi David.Forget adobe and use Preview - it's installed in your imac.Single click a document. then go to File - Get Info in the menu bar.Near the bottom of the window that opens you will see this5_9_2012_9_29_04_pm.pngChange the bit where it says Open With, to Previes and then click the button underneath that says Change All.
This will change all Adobe PDF files and other PDF files so that they open with preview - that's how it works on all the macs here, no Adobe Reader at all.

My printer wont print out

have you setup your mac for printing by going to system preferences then click on print and fax then click on the plus key and select your printer. Also download the latest print drivers for your printer before you try this. If it doesn't work please post the problem again with a note of what printer is and whether you can access the printer as above and whether it is failing to print on your machine or at the printer

Why "print and fax" icon disappearing from my mac "system preferences" window ? Right now instead of showing "system preferences icon!"(name didn't change! only the icon). So i can't add new printer, even...

Hello, it seems like your system has a corrupted preference file, or something has been deleted. For best results, I would recommend to do an update of your system. If this doesn't work, you can try to repair the systems permissions in Applications --> utilities --> disk utility, and hit "SOS" and select your drive then click on "repair permissions". Reboot the computer.
If this doesnt help, I would recommend to reinstall the system using the Leopard DVD

Printer fails to print - error code -50

From System Preferences / Printers, delete the printer completely.
If you have the driver installer for the driver you are using, re-launch it and choose the "uninstall" option. If not, you will have to rip out a lot of code by hand -- you will have to search HP's website for the page on how to manually remove traces of old Mac HP drivers.
Download the latest driver for your printer from the HP website. Install if carefully.
After rebooting, go to System Preferences / Printers and re-define the printer. Make sure you use the HP driver, not any of the generic drivers.
This ought to clear the problem.

Which OS do you have 10.4 or 10.5?

To add printers in 10.5 go to your system preferences and you will see a Printer & Fax icon. This is where you add printers.

In 10.4 go to your applications folder and then into your Utilities folder. There is Printer Utility application where you can add printers from there.
