Has a code 016-302 and will not work


This error is almost always caused by a corrupt print job or driver. If the machine was working fine it may be as simple as canceling the print job and restarting everything (computer and printer).
Before sending the job to print again, it would be worthwhile to print a test page. If you can, you know the issue is specific to whatever you're trying to print. If you cannot, you know it's a most likely a driver issue.

Other possibilities:
- a recent OS update/upgrade killed the driver. This happened to a fair number of Windows 8 users.

-You're attempting to print from MAC but don't have the printer/driver setup for postscript. Weird but true, even in 2015 PCs and MACS still use different protocols to print to laser printers. (Not an issue for ink jets)

If this is the issue, here are the directions to setup the printer and MAC to work on your network. Notice the printer (wireless or not) should be wired for config-

PRINTER SETUP:
(1) Connect printer to the ethernet port
(2) On the controler of the printer, select menu
(3) with the cursors (down) select Admin Menu, and press ok (the center key)
(4) the text "wired network" will appear. Press OK
(5) Move the coursor down to tcp/ip. Press ok
(6) "get IP address" will appear. Press ok
(7) select panel. Press ok
(8) press "menu" and repeat (1) to (5)
(9) "get IP address" will appear. Move the cursor down to "IP Address". Press OK
(10) with the coursor select write the IP address among the margins of your Router. The Gateway numbers shlould be the same as the ip number of your router. MAsK is always 255.255.255.0
(11) press menu and restart the printer

IN YOUR MAC
(1)Install the 3110cn modules version 2.1.3 Build 5 (usually in the CD, or in DELL site download area)
(2) Open Setup Print Utility and select "Add a printer"
(3) Select IP printer (any of the possibilities you are offered are ok), WRITE THE ADDRESS YOU WROTE IN YOUR PRINTER
(4)In printing using select Dell

You can move the printer to wireless, just keep the IP address the same.

Hope this helps!

Can a dynex DX-ESW5 act as a print server?


No. You need a router to set / obtain an IP or connect it directly to the computer RS232 serial port. No network required, but is old school and may be difficult. Specially with MAC. You are better off getting a new router.

I have amy old Theatrix Hollywood from 1995, but how do I get it to run on my new MAC running OS X?


I think that Theatrix Holywood was written for Mac OS 9 and given that classic support on OS X was discontinued a few years ago you are going to be out of luck. Unless you can find an older mac to play it on or use something an os 9 emulator see http://emaculation.com/doku.php/sheepshaver.

Getting a macintosh to see Brother 5250Dn. I asked another question earlier, and maybe wasn't specific enough. My mac used to be able to see printer, and now it cannot. I also have a new mac in which the...


As you don't mention which OS your Mac is running, I'll try and answer assuming you have 10.6 or 10.5
The Brother uses the older network protocol, so the Default or Bonjour won't work.
Easiest way in 'Add Printer' is to select IP and enter the ip address you used in the web browser. Then your 5250 should appear in the list with the correct driver. If your using 10.5, you might need to go to Brother's web site and download the latest drivers.
All the options such as Duplex etc. will work with 10.5/6

Router sends my printer invalid ip address


Wow what a mess, this is hard to explain easily?

All network printers should be set to a Static IP address. (Fixed address). Somewhere in your Printers network settings you will find this, it should not be set to DHCP...

Your router is probably set to DHCP, which reassigns all address.

Your computer will send out a communication telling everyone on the network the PCs new address...

Your network printer will not do this.

In your PC in the Print Driver Properties you will see Ports which should have the IP address of your printer, which is a TCP/IP port.
Which will stay the same as when you installed the printer.

When your printer reboots and a new is address assigned if set to DHCP, the pc will still look for the old address, while the printer has a new address.

That is why the printer should have a static IP address assigned from within the machine
The gateway, subnet mask should reflect the same as your network. (The gateway does not have to be in there to work by the way, if you’re using it on the same router)

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of electricity.

Hooking a patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the settings.

USB and Network use different protocols. TCP/IP uses a completely different addressing system.

I don’t think your problem was with your network, as much as it is with the Static address of the printer.

If it is printing for you now the easiest thing to do here to prevent future hassle...
print the network settings

go into your printers IP Networking settings and set the IP address and Subnet as what the printed page is ( I usually turn off DHCP, IPV4, IPV6, NetBIOS etc, and only have tcp/ip on, if your machine offers this?)

Good Luck

HP C6100 Wireless printer has stopped working


The HP C6100 series has had some ip setting issues. One day my printer didn't print. I checked the ip settings on the printer and got some 648.154.1.654 address. I had no clue where this ip number came from, because my router's ip is 192.168.0.1. I went into the settings of my printer and set my ip settings manual. Then I went into the router settings and reserved the ip setting I previously setting on the printer to the printers MAC address. I also set static ip address for each computer on my network. This network response issue started about one year after I purchased the printer. I still lose connection every once in a while, but rebooting the router reconnects the printer and everything sitting in the que to print starts to print. To stablize the issue: upgrade router firmware, set static ip address on your network devices, reserve those ip address in your router, , if all else fails reboot router.

Unable to get IP coming back from sleep mode


WEP Security is not strong enough and can be comprise within min! Buy a new print server it will make you sleep better and happier! Setup your IP as Stactic especially on the print server it needs to stay the same Log into the router and change the password, and look at your ip range, if your are using zone alarm or any type of firewall the ip range must match.

Upgraded to MAC OS X; is there a compatible driver?


This scanner was released back in the late 90's, before Os X was released. Heidelberg discontinued support of all but their high end Nexscan scanners. So unfortunately, newer drivers were never made for this product.
