SOURCE: No printing on Mac OS 10.5.1

Check under the Apple site for this issue. I use Leopard and can copy and print with this machine. I have not tried the fax, however, I assume  it will work. The scanner does NOT work with Apple...at least yet...I am not sure if it is Apple or Canon or both who are at issue for this. As per the post below, the duplex works just fine for me. You may want to consider the possibility of removing the current drivers and reload the one's currently posted by Canon.
Duplex Printing
Apr. 19, 2007
Archon Fung
I figured out how to make duplex printing on the MF4150 work! Canon Tech support says that duplex printing is not supported, but they are mistaken.
Here is what you need to do:
1. go to the Canon site and download the latest UFRII driver (v1.5) and install it
2. in the application, go to page setup and select "Format For:" MF4100 Series [this was what I did not realize]
3. then, when you go to print, select the finishing tab, and then select 2-sided printing.
If you skip step 2, and you application defaults to "format for any printer," the 2-sided option will be greyed out. Other printer drivers do not require this, but the Canon driver does.

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS
.....
After downloading is finished, unplug the USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon device may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.

My canon mg5220 printer is not printing anything. It just says error when the pop screen pops up. It doesn't give me an error code.


Hi Savannah,
Try deleting the printer entry completely and add it from scratch.

Here's how:
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Print & Fax.
  • Select the printer you want to remove,
  • Click the - (minus) button at the bottom of the panel.
  • Reboot the system.
  • 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.

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 a 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:
7d955333-f928-4e87-9d2a-9a1442c03a9a.jpg
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

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.

f0bba592-74a4-4b2b-ad7f-7ed1cd883689.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.

1f910aff-58d6-4e30-95c5-3a1d991f1945.png
Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Hp photosmart C7250 hangs while printing


Hi Georgette,

You have tried your best with possible troubleshooting to fix the issue. There are few possible workaround solution for this issue.

First, If the USB Cable is more than 3-5 ft long, it could be the reason. Also, if the USB Cable is worn out or is broken in-between.

2nd, The printer does not seems to accept command from PC ( win 7 ) using the HP Software. So Uninstall the Software. Restart the PC.

Do not install Printer Software. Connect the Printer USB to PC and Windows 7 will display new hardware detected message.

Continue with the New Hardware Found Wizard and install the drivers it will list by Default.

Try to print and it should work.

If this works, You will be able to print without any problems however if you want to scan a document, you need to use Applications like MS-Paint, Microsoft Word etc, or Use the Scanners and Camera option in Control panel.

You can then install the software disk of printer or the downloaded software from Hp website to install Printer software for SCanning.

If you do so, you will find 2 printer icons in Printers Folder. First one will be with WSD text ( this icon is created when you connect the printer using USB without installing the printer software ) and 2nd icon will be HP Photosmart C7200 All in One ( this will be the Software installed ) and this will be default icon with check mark.

Whenever you want to print from any application, You need to click on File - Print - choose the WSD icon to print.

Regards,
Sean S

To connect a ion PIC2PC ot a imac Mac OSX with in the USB-port. I have installed CrossOver and drivers from the packet, it is connected, but my mac cant


Hi. You won't locate the scanner using Finder - the same as you can't find a printer.
Scanners normally only show up when the software that uses them calls for them. I think, however, the problem may be Crossover. Crossover is a brilliant application and it runs most windows apps without too much hassle - it does appear though that it has problems talking to USB connected devices.
I have spent an hour or so this even ing trying to connect an energy recording device via USB but the windows software can't seem to find it.

There is a small little coloured ball that comes on my computer and then it freezes while I am playing a game


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support.

Anytime you see the "rainbow pinwheel" which does manifest itself from time to time in Mac OS X environments, this is an indication of either a software issue or even a hardware issue.

Considering you are playing a game, it would be safe to assess that this issue you are having is in relation to the game you are playing (being unresponsive), means that this is a software issue.

There are several variables in regards to fixing issues with the spinning pinwheel in relation to a software.

If your application is not responding, you can first of all Force Quit the application by selecting Apple Command, Option and the Esc keys, and either select the game application in the window, which should be displayed as "Not Responding" and Force Quit or select Finder and simply relaunch it.

If you are unable to get your Mac OS X system to respond at all, then try a PRAM Reset process as shown below:

--PRAM RESET --
• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown, if you have not already turned your Mac off.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)
This should help with the freezing issue:

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.
--Check to see if you are able to launch and play your game now.

If neither of these steps work, then if you have your Mac OS X installation disc which came with your Macbook, then I would finally recommend you perform these steps below with the installation (Macbook Restore) disk:


-RUN DISK UTILITY WITH MAC OS X INSTALLATION or RESTORE DISK-

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk (Note: make sure the disk contains the same Mac OS X platform that your Macbook is currently running)

•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

Now attempt to run your game application and see how your system responds after the Disk Repair process.

If the Macbook still persists in freezing or the game application still causes the spinning pinwheel to appear, then you may need to increase your Macbook's RAM memory, as the game may require more memory resources than you current have installed with your Macbook, or it may not be compatible with the current version of Mac OS X you are running with your Macbook.

I hope these steps point you in the right direction.

Regards,
