    Problem adding the MFC-J430W printer again in Mac

    My Mac runs with the Mountain Lion OS and by mistake I have deleted the printer which was added before and now I am unable to add the same MFC-J430W printer to my Mac. Tried several times but no use. What might be the problem? Is it because I have removed the printer before? Please advice.

    Hi............,

    Suggestions ----->
    * You need to visit the control panel of the device now.
    * There you need to see that any printer exist in that.
    * Also visit the system preference and select the printer option.
    * If showing in the installed list then remove every file and then restart the device.
    * Now you need to re install the printer same as before.
    * If there is problem in cable wire or other technical fault then solve that.
    * Make sure that device should be free from all virus data/file.
    * Have the antivirus in device always to save the device.
    * Antivirus must be purchased and virus definitions must be updated.
    * Do less use of the Bluetooth and wifi in device as it bring virus.
    * Also maintain the space in the memory of the device.
    * Perform the memory cleaner app to clean the memory of the device.

    Thanks

    Instruction to follow:-


    1. Open the system preference.

    2. Now locate the Print & Fax.

    3. Right click on the left column printers and press on Reset printing service.

    4. After then add again the printer device.

    5. For that open the preference tap.

    6. And search the j430w printer under the printer option.

    7. Now try to delete and then add the printer again.

    Dear Friend...

    I think the problem is related to your drivers and software's which you either deleted or un-installed when you disconnected your printer. Due to this, all your device properties and drivers has been deleted and later on, it was not detect in your MacBook device.

    Now the only thing you have to do is to connect your printer with your MacBook Device and ensure that you have attached all the cables and USB with your device.

    After that, insert your printer driver disc in your MacBook disc drive and open its drivers and software's.
    Install all one by one and eject the disc. A pop-up sound comes in your MacBook which means the device has been connected and ready to use.

    Its done now,
    Thank you....
