Question about Canon Pixma iP2600 Photo InkJet Printer

Open Question

Spooling printer output, but no actual output?

I'm running OSX 10.6.2 on a brand new i-mac.
i was able to set-up an ECRM stringray printer/rip and print to it successfully for about a week. a few days ago, i "canceled" a print job as it was coming over to the rip through the ECRM RipMate software.

now, when i try and print to the ECRM rip from my mac, my print dialogue will show the job spooling LPR to 100%, then nothing happens.
the job leaves the print queue and there is no output, this happens quickly.
i did delete the printer and recreate/reconnect it but i still get the same result, spooling LPR to 100%, then nothing...
i do have two other older macs that have no problems printing to my ECRM stingray/rip.

Did you connect the printer via the USB cable when prompted?
Also check the instruction manual to make sure it was setup correctly.

Sounds like firmware is not correctly installed. Did you try installing a network kit yourself? You need to get a tech to upgrade firmware using SST. This should install onto the copier the RUI and PS/PCL so you can print.

SOURCE: Printer keeps pausing itself!!

dev_24ind: The parallel port cannot be used for printing by default. Heaps of people have made this mistake. You need a N Boot Rom installed and N system software. Almost certainly you don't.
Get a Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 for IR3300 (contains N Boot Rom and NIC aka ethernet port). A technician can install this and update system software and you will be able to print. You will be able to print over a network (which is the preffered option) use Remote User Interface and Pull Scan using Canon Network ScanGear (google it).

My Mac OSX (version 10.6.6) (processor-2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) will not print on the dell V305 and this has been going on since I got the computer around the date 1/11/11!

I had this exact same problem. These Dell printers are really Lexmark with Dell branding. They will simply not work with Mac OSX. The only solution I came up with is to make a network printer on your home network. That will work with any combination of Macs and PCs.

Printing to a Xerox DC12/DCS50

you can't print via serial to it. You will have to check the settings in your rip to see what the ip address is. Lights will blink all the time to indicate it is on a network, its just not talking to it. Then you go into your add printers section click the + sign and it should come up in there if the ip address is in line with your mac ip

Mac and hp 7780

I had the exact same problem but never could get my Mac to work wirelessly with my 7780 even though the box said it was wireless and worked with OSX....false advertising.  Enough of the problem though.
I set up my printer through my Airport Extreme network.  That solution worked sporadically.  I would get error messages that the computer could not open the printer.  I found clicking the "pause" print button and then clicking "resume" would often work but needless to say that became a pain.
So, my IT guy set the printer up through it's IP address over my airport extreme network.  The printed has worked flawlessly for the last week since this change but.....the fax no longer works and now the scanner takes about 3 minutes per page.
Overall, I have been a die hard HP fan for years but after the nightmares with the L7780, I will NEVER use another HP product.  The item cost me about $459 but I have lost or spent over $5,000 in diminished productivity and IT charges and it STILL DOESN'T WORK AS ADVERTISED!
