IP address of printer on the network has changed

The IP address ( of my Samsung ML-2851ND printer on the network has changed since installing it yesterday, so now it won't print. Nothing was done to the system configuration to change it. So why did the IP address change? And how can I manually reconfigure the printer to the new IP address( to get it printing again?

The SetIP utility does not do what you are suggesting.

1. If you want to manually configure the IP address on the actual printer use the SetIp utility to do that.

2. If you want to configure your computer to talk to the printer which is now found at a new address you need to do a "repair" install of the printer and the drivers will find the printer at the new IP address again.

Yes, it seems crazy but for some reason you can't "reset" the drivers to use a new IP address.

You have to use the utility call SetIP that comes with the printer. Check the CDs. It is easy to use.

ML-2851ND Printing Problem

You have mentioned its a refurbished unit. If you attach a sample print it will be easier to understand the problem. however my first doubt on toner cart. If you are known the refilling/repair procedure, check and clean all rollers and blades. Also check the electrical contact points and lubricate with silicon oil.

you are using a mono laser printer
possible problem:

The surface (drum part) of the toner cartridge inside the machine has probably been scratched.

Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one.

By network cable, you mean CAT5 or CAT6 actual network cable, or did you mean USB cable? If you are connecting directly from your printer to your computer with network cable, it would need to be a cross over cable, not regular network cable. If you are using USB cable, here is a link to Samsung for your ML-1630W operating instructions. Reference page 3.2 for using USB with software CD.

Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.
