On the screen of the printer itself . . . It has its own memory controls to set it up with one of the controls being "Network" and DHCP not found.
I think I've already tried this but I will again in the morning. Do I need to reset anything in the printer ? It has its own input system on the printer itself (which none of my other printers have ever had) thus I worry about giving one message from my Imac yet a different preferences might already be programmed into this printer.
I'll get back to you tomorrow.
I can add the Ricoh printer to my preferences no problem. The problem is it won't print a PDF without a syntex error such as "Stack" error.
I'll work with this more in the morning.
I'll try that again tomorrow, it didn't work for me in the past.
I'll let you know.
I downloaded the newest print driver and installed it. I deleted the older driver and readded my printer to the system Fax and Printers profiles. It shows up fine. Then I try to print a PDF I get error messages: syntax error" Offending command: ) Error Message: ioerror offending command: flushfile
I am still getting syntex errors. I'm feeling the memory needs to flush out and I'll try again in the morning with the suggestion of printing PDFs as images.
Error message: ioerror
Offending Command: image
I'm still getting error messages instead of prints from Word files, PDFs, even if I "print as image" I've deleted and readded the print driver more than a dozen times and keep having to delete jobs sent to printing as the "printer is not online" . . . It still flashes "can not find DHCP network" I understand that the USB should overide this but it doesn't seem to be. I'm really confused. Thinking is there a way to connect with ethernet cable instead of usb and would that be more stable. I just want to say print and have my layout print. If it is a "print as image" or just print neither command are giving me prints. I did get two pdfs to print yesterday just to reinspire me to keep trying but then hours of syntex errors after that.
Frustrated trying to get an old school Ricoh color laser printer to talk to and print from a Imac 24" OS X 10.6.8
I'd tried resetting the print drivers right before you sent me that message and at the moment everything is printing fine (without using "print as image") . . . I'd like to make sure everything still works tomorrow when I refire up my computer and printer. Everything you've said has made sense and things I'd tried but had gotten frustrating results . . . I'm hoping resetting the print drivers will do the trick. I'll let you know in the morning.
