Driver for Mac

I love my little BJC 55 but cannot get a driver for my mac Boo Pro running OX 10.4. Is there a work around to get it to print? I've tried Gimp without success...

Hope you can help.

As what is listed in apple's support site

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1468

Gimp is the only tested driver by them.
Personally I wont trust a 3rd party driver other than gimp and guttenprint because these drivers have been tested by apple team. Other than gimp seems like the only available driver in canon's site are for os 8 and os 9.

Cannot find driver/software for my dusty Canon imageCLASS MF3240 on mac OS 10.7 Lion?


There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

I have a new MacBook Pro and cannot get my Brother printer to work with it. The computer recognizes the printer but does not print.


Hi,
Did you install the Mac driver for MFC? The MFC comes with driver for windows and Mac. Place the Mac Driver disk to DVD slot and run the installation for your MFC printer. Follow the instruction to complete the installation.
When you try to print something, make sure the MFC printer is selected.
If you've done all of this and still not able to print, please turn off your MFC, wait 15 seconds and turn on again to see problem solve or not.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

I just purchased the Mac Pro and have a BJC-85. I don't have the software disc. Is there a site to download?


Try driverguide.com for a driver... I think that printer may be pretty old and may not have a driver to work with current operating systems.

BJC-85 Not printing. New BC-10 and BCI-10. Paper loads normally


The problem you are having is with the print head and not the printer. Unfortunately, with these canon print heads, they are not dated, so it is possible to install a print head that was bought new and sealed, but is still dried out because it is old.

Try running the print head through one deep cleaning cycle, this sometimes will start to get an old print head flowing.

Deep cleaning cycle can be found by going to PRINTERS , right clicking on the BJC icon, selecting PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, and then selecting the MAINTAINENCE tab.

Check to make sure that the ink tank in the print head isn't dry. Even a new print head can have a dry tank if it's old.

Hp drivers for a Mac


Their is no driver for the Ox 10.anything .OS X and OX  9  are the only two available or since this is a rather old model ever likely to be. It is not cost effective for them to pay to write a new OS driver for an old product.It is extremely unlikely anyone else will ever write one for someone elses product either.  Sorry.

Not printing from one computer


If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.

Mac Intel OX 10.5.5 drivers not loading and working


I had this same problem with my MacBook Pro Intel notebook running the latest Mac OS. I went to the OKI web site ( http://my.okidata.com/pp-C5200n.nsf/openingdrivermenu?OpenFrameSet ) and downloaded the OKI C5000 GDI Intel driver. I followed the install instructions to load the driver. Next, I went to system preferences and selected printers. Then I selected the + button under printers. My current printers showed up on the list. I then selected "More Printers" and the other drivers loaded on my Mac were listed. One option was OKI USB. I selected this option THEN I plugged my USB cable from the OKI into my Notebook. The computer recognized the printer. I hit Save and I proceeded to print my first document. FYI: I spent several hours trying to get this thing to work yesterday with the USB cable already plugged in. I don't know why it would not work. This worked for me. Good luck.
