Question about Xerox Phaser 6300N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Re: Help I have downloaded and installed the print drivers. I have been to the site as well as talked to the IT person for my school. She is primarily a PC person so Mac issues are tough for her. I know that the computer is talking to the printer. On the print monitor, I can now see the document being processed, but the printer never moves from "ready to print" to "processing." When I check the jobs completed tab on the print monitor, the job shows up there, even though it has never printed.Things I have done since the first post:1. Switched from the ethernet to the USB connection.2. Changed the printer set up (on the printer) to USB3. Changed the printer set up from N to DN (network to dedicated network), but I don't really know how that would help. The printer is used at school as a network printer for a lab of 25+ Apple computers... primarily G5s.4. Rebooted my computer (every time I changed something).5. Rebooted the printer (after #2 and #3).6. Read a lot of stuff on the Xerox website that didn't apply or didn't make much sense to me.7. Cussed... a lot. The printer didn't even blush.I am about to go back to my Epson R200 to print this job, but I really don't want to as it will be quite expensive and time consuming. If you have any other ideas, let me know.  :-)

Epson r320 printer w/ no advance settings when linked w/ new IMAC


I had the same problem when installing my Epson R300 onto my new iMac (Snow Leopard). The first install used the newest online driver from Epson. The printer symptoms were exactly like yours. Then I installed the Apple driver updates. It was seamless and now the printer settings can be accessed. Perhaps if you uninstalled (read about that on the Epson site first) and then downloaded the new factory driver, followed by the Apple update which will further update files, you might have some luck. Just a guess on my part. Best wishes.

Not so much a problem but got message printed out while trying to print a document. Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN. Does this mean something I should be concerned with ??


An error page will print with the words "Unsupported Personality: PCL " in the upper left hand corner. The printers are host-based and do not support PCL printing; therefore, installing an alternate PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver will frequently generate this error condition. NOTE: This error condition occurs by design when an attempt to print with a PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver occurs and is NOT a bug within the product software. SOLUTION: Install the correct HP LaserJet Host-Based Printer Driver or the HP LaserJet printing system software for the product. These drivers are available for download from the HP web site. Click here to go to the HP web site drivers and downloads page. NOTE: There are several programs (such as accounting, invoicing, court documentation applications) that are 16 bit (DOS) programs with a 32 bit (Windows) overlay. Due to the nature of these applications and the associated Windows overlay, the errors may continue with the correct printer drivers. These applications do not typically support a host-based output device, and as such would not be supported in these environments.

Cannot install Easy-PhotoPrint EX for Windows Ver 3.2


I think Canon is abandoning EZ photo Print and is now offering EZ Photo Print EX.
Basically same program but more options.You can try that.
If it not available from your model try to get it from a newer model.
I think you are talking about a MP450 .

Incorrect Port Detected


According to Features and Specs on Lexmarks website, this is a All in One? i.e Fax, Printer, Scan & Copy? also it's a Network type?

If so have you chosen the correct settings via the Printers Dispay and Control Panel? ...... I assume you have and everythinh in Device manager looks good, i.e no Yellow and or Red Icons over anything listed there, especially USB....correct?

If your Vista is the 32 Bit then the driver file should be: cjb5000enOSS.exe (87.7MB)
If Windows Vista x63 then it will be: cjq5000enOSS.exe (132.76MB)

Hope the above helped,

cheers,

Bastian

Prints light purple instead of grey


I think your Black Cartridge is Empty. Check it and replace it with the new one.

Your Printer is trying to produce Black Colour from your Colour Cartridge with a mix of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow.

mmacko1:

When I saw your chat go through, I knew that I was not prepared at that time to sufficiently help you address your issues - despite my numerous years (20+/-) of experience with HP equipment - primarily because my personal experience with both of these topics was fairly limited. I have not personally experienced issues with the particular driver mentioned, and my issues with java have been less complex.

However, perhaps for these reasons, as strengthened by my unique involvement with the HP brand, I was intrigued by these issues - enough that I spent a great deal of time researching both matters. [Please note that I refer to both matters, because they are two separate issues. The fact that they have both happened to appear at about the same time, if this is the case, appears to be relatively unrelated.]

As I recall, this was the problem submitted to a live chat session. This may be incorrect, but it seems very similar. It appears, as the issues have continued to be posted, that the problems you had have not been resolved. Therefore, I would like to share with you the results of my research, and I hope, serve as an effective vehicle to facilitate actual resolution of your issues.

I do not know, even with review of your numerous postings, what operating system and other equipment you are utilizing. However, I believe this may come into play only at certain times in selecting the appropriate download or the proper procedure for altering a setting within your system. Within my further responses, which you will find associated with the relevant posts (in order to attempt to clarify the issues and prevent confusion), you will see that I have generally assumed (?!) that you are running an XP OS. This decision was based primarily on the timing of release for the product you have indicated is at issue, and the inherent issues of the problems themselves.

Finally, it appears that the message received in regard to the driver is as stated; however, I believe that the actual message you have seen in regard to java, at the end, reads "Class not registered" as opposed to "Class not negotiated". Thank you for your consideration of these matters, and I trust that you will find this information helpful, and that your issues will be resolved. Please rest assured that I will work with you until the problems are handled, and we have reached a "FixYa" level of service...

Not printing


This is the information I received from another person when i ask for help. I did exactly as it said and my printer works fine now. Try it and see if it works for you. Good Luck!

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from: ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from: http://downloads.lexmark.com:/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:548:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=10374&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.
