    I installed the CD software for my lexmark 5400s series but every time I try to print (after my default printer has been set to the one installed) it either doesn't respond or an error message pops up.

If you have OSX, the computer already has the drivers, do not use the ce, just connect the printer via usb, make sure the power cable is connected, turn the printer on, restart the computer.
After the reboot, go to the apple in the top left, select SYSTEM PREFS, select PRINTING and FAX, add a printer based on the model number. That should do it, if not, let me know, you may need 2 more steps.

1) Go to printers and scanners
2) clixk on the + sign in the left corner
3) a new window appears. There should your wireless printer appear ( Bonjour)
4) add your wireless printer

If you the printer does not appear then there might be something wrong with the Macbook or the wireless printer or / and the network.

Go to app store and download IP Scanner for free
This utility gives information about wireless devices in your environment.
If the printer pops up then try to connect to the printer in Safari by using the IP address. If this does not work then try another computer and verify the settings of your Macbook.

Since buying my new mid-2013 Macbook Air (13-inch 256GB), my 8-year-old Canon Pixma iP6000D printer will complete only part of a complex document (like a webpage), whether wireless or wired. Simple...


Try printing to PDF and then printing the PDFs to the iP6000D. Make sure you're using the most recent drivers from Canon instead of Apple's. For what it's worth this problem was noted with CUPS drivers on that generation of iP Pixmas both in OS X and Linux. Given the age and the fact the most recent driver's designed for Snow Leopard, it might be time to move on to a newer printer.

Just bought a 4gb attache, plugged it into the usb on macbook pro and nothing happens


You can try going to the Disk Utility (which is under Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility), selecting the drive (if it appears) and click "Mount". If it doesn't show up in the Disk utility, then the device may not be connected properly, the USB port may not be functioning, or the device may be malfunctioning. You may try reformatting the drive with the Disk Utility if it is blank and you are just using it for the first time.

Printer problem


Try turning on printer sharing on the system pref app. Launch the system preferences in the dock, and click on sharing. Then enable printer sharing on the main computer... then on your macbook as you choose your printer (from the print command within an application). in the pull down menu choose the printers in the SHARED area of the menu... it should help get you there.

How do I find or give my printer an IP address?


You have your printer set to sharing (it does not have an IP addres because it does not have network capabilities).

This printer is supported in Mac OSX. All you need to do is plug it in, and Add the Printer in System Preferences. The driver is an open source driver called Gutenprint. It is already installed on your computer, so the Add Printer should find the drivers nessesary by itself.

Follow the instructions below.

Manual installation

If you plugged in the USB cable and the print queue was not created, follow these steps:
Steps Action Illustration 1 Plug the USB cable into the printer and into the Mac. ... 2 Launch System Preferences and select Print & Fax. Image 3 Click + to add the printer. Image 4 Select the printer, click Print Using and select your printer from the list. Then click Add to create the printer object. Image 5 Once the printer has been added, close System Preferences. The printer is now ready to print. Image
Troubleshooting
If you installed the driver from the printer·s installation CD or from a web download, uninstall it and follow the instructions below for recovering the driver from the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) CD.
Steps Action Illustration 1 Uninstall the installed driver. ... 2 Delete the Lexmark folder found in Library/Printers.
