Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I have a printer (samsung ML 2010) connected to a u.s.robotics adsl 4-port router (not wireless).

so, i went to "finder/applications/system preferences/printer&fax" and i tried to add a printer. I entered the printer's ip on address tag and tried to print a page...but i received the following message "Attempting to connect to host for printer. Host '' is busy; will retry in 20 seconds...".

Then i tried to change the protocol from LPD to IPP but the only thing that changed was the message "Connecting to on port 631.Network host '' is busy; will retry in 20 seconds..."

The printer works fine with usb connection also works fine under windows XP.

    I have same printer with similar problem but using a Belkin wired print server. Printer through print server prints just fine from a Windows 2000 laptop. Printer through print server printed just from from Mac OS10.4 but ever since upgrading the iMAC to OS10.5 I can't get print through the print server. The iMAC will print to the ML-2010 just fine when the Samsung printer is directly connected to the iMAC USB port, bypassing the Belkin print server.

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

Cannot print on new Macbook with Leopard Mac OS - need driver

I just upgraded to snow leopard and my previous driver was erased, so I did some digging around and found the right driver (it is not included even in the most recent GutenPrint software).
Look at the Global Samsung website - the US Samsung site does not support MacOS drivers.
Your OS should ask to install Rosetta to read the file (Zip), but then the install is quick and easy. The printer driver immediately showed up in the printer>setup>driver menu. Prints without a hitch.
Haven't booted my laptop into 64bit kernel, so I don't know if the driver is 64bit compatible - I expect not. Hope this helps.
