Try to check the USB in the device manager if did not disable. To goto device manager right click the My Computer on the screen and click properties. Dialogue box appears click on the Hardware and click Device Manager. Another dialogue box appear then just see at the bottom of the dialogue box if the Universal Serial Bus Controllers are did not have question mark (?) with yellow color. If don't have mark like that try to change your USB cable then insert it again to your printer. But if they have a mark like that you need to right click the Universal Serial Bus Controllers and click Update driver.

Printer properties dialogue box for mac


Go to the Apple Logo (top left) and choose System Preferences. In the hardware (second) line, choose Print and Fax. You can add printers by choosing the + sign, From here you can choose which printer is the default. You can also choose Printer Setup and paper size

Also, click on the desktop and enter the keystrokes Command (Open Apple) f. Enter print in the search box and scroll down to Applications. You should find the printer utility icon and some other print related icons. You can open these and read the directions. It's hard to be more step-by step since I don't know what you wan to change. Within an application (such as MS Word) you also have the page setup choice under the FILE menu.

either port or driver problem. you may have to make adjustments in BIOS under peripheral devices. default is auto, change to assign manually and assign a port for com 1, com 2, printer.
reboot
right click MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, HARDWARE, DEVICE MANAGER; scroll down to com 1 and com 2 ports (above printer port) make sure no yellow explanation marks which indicate a port conflict. NO PRINTER WILL PRINT.
go to mfr website and download driver for your printer
click MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, HARDWARE, DEVICE MGR;
scroll down to printer port; right click; PROPERTIES, click on change driver; browse over to where you download drivers; keep going down the tree until you get to DRIVERS (select the folder with your operating system) click on it to OPEN into dialogue box (in change driver wizard which is open) and hit enter; THE WIZARD WILL INSTALL THE CORRECT DRIVER FOR YOUR PRINTER.
HAPPY PRINTING.

Hi,

The default printer is set to be "file". Here's what you must do:

- Go to printers dialogue box and right click on your printer name and selectd "Set s default printer"
 - Right click on printers name and chose Properties. then look for a check box saing something like "print to file" and unchek it.

This sould resolve the problem.
Best regards
