I have been trying for about 2 weeks now to get my printer to work. I have a Lexmark X5150 All-in-One printer. I downloaded the drivers, instllaed it with the CDs which came with it, but still it won't print. It will scan and copy but not print. I have tried every program to print from but still nothing. Any idea?

Thanks.

Is your print center able to recognize the printer when you have it turned on? If it does is the printer stopped in the print center?

Yeah, for some reason Tiger stops my print queue every now and then. Thankfully, it's stopped now. You might need to just go into the Print Queue for the Lexmark through the System Preferences and restart it.

I finally got it working! :) I deleted the printer from the Print setup and the added it again after removing and replacing the cable. I keep forgeting the easiest solution is the one I want with the Mac :)

Thanks guys!

I can see my XP shared network printer (Canon i470D) from my G5 running Tiger.
But when I try to print, in print queue box its saying "Connection failed with error. NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED" Then after a few minutes, "Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will try in 60 seconds...ERROR: Connection failed with error"

After a couple tries and resets, now it's giving me this messege: "Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY"
Can sombody please Help Me...

I can't help you sorry :eek: but I think you might get more responses if you start a new thread, your problem seems different enough and anyone that has read the old problem has been resolved probably won't be back here for a visit. Just a thought.
