/usr/libexec/cups/backend/lpd failed


This sounds like a printer issue rather than something wrong with your Mac. When you refill your printer ink cartridges the ink level setting won't change, and if you let the ink level go down too far before refilling the printer marks the cartridge as empty and locks it out. (something like that)

Try this... It should work on most newer model printers.

Shut down your Mac. (important) Turn the printer off and leave it off for one or two minutes. Turn it back on and wait until it goes through all of its whirring and clicking and chugging start-up noises. When it's quiet you should end up with a flashing "E" or an upside-down "u" on the display. Find the Reset or Stop button on the printer and hold it down for 6 seconds. The display should clear and show the number "1".

Turn on your computer and print. If it works, you're done.

If that didn't work pull down the Apple menu and choose "About This Mac". If it says Version 10.6.8 you're about to spend $29 because the message "/usr/libexec/cups/backend/lpd failed" was common with that version of OS X, and that was the last version of Snow Leopard 10.6. Click the "Software Update..." button which will open the App Store. Shell out your 29 bucks for Mavericks OS X 10.9.

The only other solution would be to replace "lpd" from a different computer that's running 10.6.7, which is doubtful. (unless you have a backup)

Good Luck!

Every time i try to print, the computer doesn't seem to see the printer and it stops the job. error message # 306. very aggravating!


That error message usually means you have a communication error. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer. Then try printing again
If that doesn't work, try this:
1. Start Home Applications, go to Utilities, select Utility Printer Setup
2. Hold down the "option" key and click on "More Printers" button
3. From the main menu, select "Advanced"
4. In the next dialog box, under Device: select field "LPD / LPR Host or Printer"
5. In the device of the "URL:" lpd://PCName/PrinterShareName
6. Click the "Add
If that doesn't work either, check your router settings.

Xerox phaser error code is : 07.002.44:10318 what dose this mean


07,002.44:
PM_FAULT_PROCESS_MOTOR_STALL

Verify process motor operation with the Process Motor diagnostic
test. Also exercise processes run with the process motor;
transfix, drum maintenance and head tilt. This can be caused by
the power control board. The process motor may have more than
one task initiated. Reset all solenoids and the pressure roller
prior to cycling power.
