Getting HP2600n to print from MacBookPro first generation
I have tried multiple fixes, but so far nothing works
The 2600n prints perfectly from my business partners 2nd generation intel mac - and mine sees it and says its printing to it - but all I get is a completed print job - nothing actually prints
Anyone have any ideas???

According to HP if the problem is only when you print from your PC or Mac then you need to reinstall the printer driver. If the problem is also when you print just from the printer, i.e. scanning or test page, then the problem is with the printer.
