Question about Xante Accel-a-Writer 3N Laser Printer

Xante Printer Accel-a-writer_3N_PS

I have a Mac OS X version 10.4.11 and an Xante Printer Accel-a-writer_3N_PS
it has worked fine for a year, but now when I try to print, nothing happens except a red exclamation mark appears on the printer icon.  when I click on the printer icon it says "Jobs stopped."  If I click on "Start jobs" it tries to connect for a few seconds as indicated by a horizontal striped bar, then it reverts to "Jobs stopped."  Two days ago it worked fine for one day.  Now it doesn't work again. I can print to my husband's printer downstairs, but not to my own!  I don't have any knowledge of how to fix this, but I can follow directions well. If anyone can instruct me, that would be wonderful!

    This was just a file with images placed. Our other Xante is working fine (older). We've had the 330GL for almost 3 years.

I fixed it, but I do not know how.  I looked around on the "print and fax" settings in the control panel, learned a little, but didn't see anything that seemed likely to solve the problem. I checked toner and paper--all ok. I shut printer off, unplugged and replugged every wire that goes to the printer, screen, laptop, or any other little box anywhere.  I restarted and surprise, success!
Maybe just a loose connection, but I think it had something to do with the wireless system in our house not working properly.  The Two little wires that run between my laptop and my extra screen are normally not plugged into my laptop.  (My computer guy said they do not need to be plugged once you start the screen up the first time. Maybe that wire connection had something to do with it.  
The other explanation is that the gremlins got sleepy and went to bed.

Xante accel-a-writer 4g for mac OSX 10.6


I haven't checked in a while. Xante told me when I called them that they were not planning to make updates past the current version of the 4G OS X drivers, as the machine was no longer in production. They said the driver should perform adequately on current versions of OS X even though it was not initially designed for them (as they did not exist when the driver was created).
I found this to be untrue in my case. The drivers did not allow me to print consistently from 10.5.8 on an Intel Mac Pro.
My solution was to activate the print server on an Xserve running the Tiger server version of OS X, install the Xante driver there (since it was designed to run on that version of the OS), and now my newer macs can use the printer without issue.

Front paper jam


Always try to remove a paper jam without tearing the paper.
If torn, make sure no scraps of it are missing.
Lokk for any tiny scraps, esp stuck on paper path sensor.
