    Re: What to do if I am not able to print from Mac OS?

    My first suggestion would be to click on IP icon in apple menu of system preference and check whether it showing line printer daemon if it is not showing than or showing even it creating problem then,write in address bar in number or reset the printing system .
    Then, re-add your address of printer and see if it helps.

    Even if it is not working than it means that problem is in your printer or system.

    Then my last suggestion is to use gutenprint is best for mac os or second option is canon printer.

    This could be an issue with some corrupt print
    preferences. In your toolbar go to about:config
    and reset all of your print.preferences. This could
    hopefully help!

    Hello Friend ...


    >> Mac OS X comes with Software that Lets you use Most Printers

    >> You may need to install additional software to add your printer to the Printer List depending on which printer you use

    >> Choose the page Attributes from the SETTINGS pop up menu

    >> Choose PRINT from the FILE menu

    >> Or Press the Command -P key Combinations ....




    GOOD LUCK

    Hello friend

    First you check all the wires of printer which should be properly connected with your Mac OS.
    If they attached properly then it might be a software or an drivers issue.

    Try to uninstall the previous setup of the printer and e-install the same setup and then give a command for print.
    If its not working fine, then try to find the update file of the setup, download, install and update in your PC.
    Now give another command.
    If its still creates problem then it might be a problem with your OS,
    So kindly contact with your Customer Support.

    Thanks dear

    Guest...

    The cables which are connected with your Mac USB port might be disconnected,
    This problem is happen due to heating up the wire.
    Kindly change its wires from the back and put some new cables.

    This works for you,
    thank you...

    - Mac OS supports so many printers.

    - Your problem is that your printer is not correctly connected with your PC.

    - You need to first ensure that your printer is physically connected with your PC.

    - The you have to install printer's drivers in your PC.

    - For this you have to use the cd which was given with printer.

    - From the cd install the drivers in pc.

    - Then connect your printer. Now give print, it will work properly.
