    "Error: Maximum number of printers that can be added has been exceeded" on Mac OS X 10.7

    On my mac machine there was a printer connected, now I have bought a new printer so for this I have deleted all the files and drivers related to the old printer, and when connecting the new printer am getting the error message "Error: Maximum number of printers that can be added has been exceeded".

    Suggestions ------------------->
    * There is a limit in connection of the printer in device.
    * You need to go to the system preference panel now.
    * There go to the hardware option and then select the print option.
    * There you can if any printer is attached or not.
    * If it shows that the printer is attached you need to uninstall that.
    * You can also uninstall the printer software from the control panel itself.
    * Attach the new printer and then work on it.

    Make sure that --->
    * You must maintain space in the device memory so that apps can work properly.
    * This can be maintained by cleaning the cache and history files in device.

    Procedure to solve the printer issue:-


    1. System Preference> Print & Fax, Control+Click on one of your printers
    on the left and select 'reset printing system'.

    2. This will delete all your printers so you'll need to add them again.

    3. After adding you can see your error is removed.
