I tried everything suggested & nothing worked. Then I unplugged everything from everything, including the phone jacks from the printer & wall & let sit for 24 + hours. All is back to normal.

/usr/libexec/cups/backend/lpd failed

This sounds like a printer issue rather than something wrong with your Mac. When you refill your printer ink cartridges the ink level setting won't change, and if you let the ink level go down too far before refilling the printer marks the cartridge as empty and locks it out. (something like that)

Try this... It should work on most newer model printers.

Shut down your Mac. (important) Turn the printer off and leave it off for one or two minutes. Turn it back on and wait until it goes through all of its whirring and clicking and chugging start-up noises. When it's quiet you should end up with a flashing "E" or an upside-down "u" on the display. Find the Reset or Stop button on the printer and hold it down for 6 seconds. The display should clear and show the number "1".

Turn on your computer and print. If it works, you're done.

If that didn't work pull down the Apple menu and choose "About This Mac". If it says Version 10.6.8 you're about to spend $29 because the message "/usr/libexec/cups/backend/lpd failed" was common with that version of OS X, and that was the last version of Snow Leopard 10.6. Click the "Software Update..." button which will open the App Store. Shell out your 29 bucks for Mavericks OS X 10.9.

The only other solution would be to replace "lpd" from a different computer that's running 10.6.7, which is doubtful. (unless you have a backup)

Good Luck!

Looks like a faulty gear mechanism in your scanner. It is not able to return to the home position. You could try a hard reset: Unplug from power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and try again. If the issue recurs, then you will need to take it in for servicing..

HP 2510 printer in "wait" mode indefinitely

It sounds to me like the printer needs repaired/replaced as the gears which drive the printer cartridges' belt are no longer aligning correctly. At today's prices, I strongly suggest just replacing the printer as you can get a new one pretty cheap now. Good luck!

Printer makes clicking noise

Make sure the printer is not out if ink. When the light flashes this may be the case. Also check the print queue. If it contains pending print jobs and there is no paper the light will flash. Here is how to check print queue: Click Start > click priters and faxes > double click printer icon and see if there is something ... If you see any print jobs delete them right away. and restart your computer. This should solve your problem.
