I have moved to a school district that has MAC computers and I brought my printer from home to be in my classroom.
I connected the printer with a special cord to the printer. When I tried to print from Word to the printer ...the printer started but then blank paper was just sprewing out....and/or some computer language/digits printed on the paper.
what do i do to have my printer print correctly?

There are no capacitors or anything
that can hold a charge on the cart itself. The only thing that we've
been able to come up with thus far is that dry air in the schools may
help generating static electricity. Common precautions would be 1. make
sure the ground plug is still on the cord. (This can get broken off if
the cart is moved with the cord still plugged into the wall.) Plugging
the ground cord in won't help however if the person has to grab the door
handle to open the door to get to the wall outlet. 2. If the air is dry
(ie: people get shocks even without the cart or the problem goes away
in the spring when the humidity goes up), gently push the metal of the
cart handle against the door frame prior to reaching for the door
handle. This will discharge any static electricity that was built up as
the person walked with the cart safely to the door jamb prior to the
person reaching for the door handle.
Can you get into System Preferences to add a new account? If so, set up a new user account for yourself and make sure the checkbox is checked that will allow you to administer the account. That won't delete all of the stuff associated with the original admin. account, but will allow you to go happily on your way with a new account. I hope this helps. Happy holidays,
