This is kind of a funny issue but the solution is pretty simple. The software sees mac 10.4.11 as 10.4.1.1 which would be too old of a version. The solution is to install the software from the web. www.kodak.com/

My Epson 1400 wont pull the paper through when I hit the print button. But when I insert a sheet of photo paper and hit outside printer button it will pull thepaper through but wont print


Hi

First off, the simplest solution is to try to clean the rollers of dust. If you can access the rollers, especially while they are spinning, this would be best. Get a damp cloth either with water or rubbing alcohol and wipe the rubber down, and retest your machine. Most of the time this is cause by the paper pickup rollers, which are made out of plastic or rubber, getting too dirty/slick to properly pick up the paper. Remove all the paper and the paper tray if you can. Using a long qtip, clean the rollers with alcohol. If that doesn't work, or can't be done with your printer, take all the paper out but one sheet. Spritz some alcohol on the bottom of that sheet and smear it out so it covers the entire width of the paper up about 2 inches. Then try to print a document that is a blank page. After either of these methods wait at least 4-5 minutes for all the alcohol to dry before trying to print again.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Incessant "phantom" paper jams.


The only things I can think of which may help would be to clean out the machine completely. Toner dust and small particles can set off paper jam sensors. I would take alcohol & water and clean off every rubber wheel that moves the paper through the machine. Then inspect them one by one for wear. If you have a wheel with a flat side it won't handle paper correctly and the delay in timing will set off paper jams. Over time the rubber on the wheels gets sticky or dull and does not pick up the paper correctly. The software installed on the pc's times the paper processing procedure and when things are not in tuned it will think there must be a paper jam.

The other thing would be to reset the machine & update the software in all pc's that use it as a printer before reconnecting it again.

The reset the machine, disconnect any cables to pc's using it and then turn it off and unplug it from the wall. Press and hold the power button with the power cord disconnected for sixty seconds or so. Then go to each pc that uses it and uninstall the software for the HP. Then go to HP's website (www.hp.com) and download then install the newest version of the software on each computer.

Another thing that causes paper jam sensors to go off is using the wrong kind of copy paper in the machine. If the paper is too light the feeders will throw it through the machine too quick. If its got a smooth texture to it the paper will not be picked up as it it supposed to.

If I were you I would go to the local stationers and purchase a good grade, heavy weight copy paper to use on the machine to rule out that the type of paper being used could be causing the trouble. It may be expensive, but buy a single rheem of really good paper thats made for copiers and remove all of your old paper and reload with the new before reconnecting all pc's again.

After the new paper is loaded and the machine has been cleaned and inspected, and all pc's have the newest version of software installed on them plug the machine into the power source again and run a few test sheets.

If you still get the same problem after all of the above, then I would say its some sort of electrical sensor problem that needs a tech on site to figure out and repair.

Good luck! And let me know if any of the above helps to solve the problem.

Reports paper jam, but there is no paper in the printer


hello,

There is probably still some bit of paper jammed in there. Did the paper rip at all when you removed the paper jam? I assume you tried turning the printer off for awhile?

Completely uninstall the printer from the system, re-install it, then try again. I hope you have the printer's software.

First, go to Start > control panel > printers.

Right click on each printer icon you see, scroll to delete and click. Make sure all the printer there are deleted.

Go back to control panel, click on program and features (for windows vista/7) or Add/Remove Programs (win xp).

Disconnect the printer cord from the computer.

Uninstall every driver/software that is associated with the printer.

Restart your computer.

After your computer has been restarted, install the printer driver afresh and connect the printer to the computer.

If this doesn't solve the problem, please let me know.

Good luck.

My printer is turning on, but not printing, its telling me that the printer is offline and that there is a media jam. I have an I Mac please help.


Here's a quick summary of what's new for printing in Snow Leopard (read below for more details):
  • Apple's Software Update will automatically provide you with third-party printer software and updates.
  • "Nearby Printers" is a list of available printers that will appear right inside your printer dialog box. Adding a nearby printer is just a selection away.
  • You can simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created.
  • You can create a PDF document from any application and have an automated workflow process it.
Before you connect your printer
  • Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer software and updates.
  • Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any issues such as a paper jam or low ink.
  • Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an administrator account name and password--make sure you know one for your Mac.
  • If you are upgrading from Mac OS X v10.5, see "Upgrading Print Queues..." in the additional information section below.
How to add a printer
To add a USB printer
Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.
To add "Nearby Printers"
With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a printer connected to the USB port on an Apple Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.
To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
nearby%20printer.jpg Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.
Note: Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane

Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.
blank print _ fax system preference.png From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:
  1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will add the printer driver for you.
    • Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer driver is selected, then the printing software may not be available from Apple. For more information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.
    • Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print Queue.

  2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.
  3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon (LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See your printer's manual or support documentation for information about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.
  4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is often needed to see Windows printer shares.

Hi.

Try the following in order:

Disconnect printer power cord.
Turn off computer.
Disconnect computer power cord. (if laptop also remove battery)
Restart first computer than printer.
(this may look stupid, but it drains power that can jam USB ports and cause malfunction).

Clean the metal plate contacts in the ink carriage using cotton and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution.

Try turning off printer and performing a new cartridge installation. Use the HP software cartridge replacement procedure, do not simply swap cartridges.

Disconnect printer USB, reinstall printer software, connect printer back when prompted by setup wizard. Updated software for this model available at Software & Driver Downloads.

If you have spare cartridges, test them, the problem may be caused by a defective cartridge chip. Non original or refurbished cartridges commonly cause similar problems.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.
