I want you to check some things that may or may not be affecting the situation. It is posted as an Answer because of site rules but it is really just a diagnostic test. So please don't Rate to Finish just Reply to Expert when done.

Open Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities and double click Disk Utility. Highlight your hard drive, usually Macintosh HD, and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Permissions on the left.

Note: If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions if it is not successful let me know.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It was successful . Now what do I do.
Did the drive need repairs?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I really don't know should I verify disk?

I thought you said it was successful can you clarify? So Verify Disk was OK in green type and then you Repaired Permissions?


Customer: replied 3 years ago.
At the bottom it said permissions repair complete.
Ok but what about Verify Disk?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm not sure about what I should do next
Was Verify Disk OK in green type??
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No but I am verifying the disc. I am probably doing this all backward. It about done with 2 mins to go
OK I spelled it out is this not clear enough? Click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Permissions on the left.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I did and the permission verification and repair verification has been completed.
Ok sorry but still not right... VERIFY DISK then if OK, REAPAIR PERMISISONS not Verify Permissions.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
There is no green light but it now has gone to Erase is lit up in blue?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Repair went through but there is no green lights
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I would say the drives did not need repairs
No do not ERASE!!! Please look below... select Macintosh HD on the left and then on the First Aid tab on the right then Verify Disk (2) on the far right, it will complete with errors in red or it will say OK in green, then Repair Permissions (1) on the left.

I think something in the core library is damaged and it can't be repaired. I think i better give up.

What do you mean? Why do you say that? What happened?
We are just getting to the problem that was just preliminary checking things.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Did you run Software Update?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes. And it said all updates were ok
OK did you purchase iPhoto from the app store or did it come with the computer?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It came with the computer.
OK try printing again and give me the exact error message.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No available Themes

There were no themes located . Until at least one
Theme has been installed, this feature will be unavailable
OK you need to reinstall iPhoto. You won't lose any pictures. Drag iPhoto app to the trash from Applications, then:

Insert the Applications installation disc into your computer’s optical drive (or an optical drive connected to your computer) and double-click the Install Bundled Software icon.

Follow the onscreen instructions. In the Installation Type pane, click Customize.

Click the disclosure triangle next to Bundled Applications, select the checkbox next to the application you want to install, and then click Install.

After that is done run Software Update BEFORE you try to open iPhoto.

Is it open? You have to quit it first
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok I did quit it from the dock and installed the installation Cd
OK follow the directions I gave and after run Software Update
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I followed the directions and ran the software update. Then I went to applications and checked iPhoto went in to see if any change in wanting to print and the same message came up about no themes were available.
You reinstalled iPhoto from the disk after trashing it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm not sure it went in to the trash as it would not let me move it.but I quit it from the dock
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I checked the trash iPhoto was not in it. How do you get it moved to the trash it will not move.
OK restart the computer, don't open anything and then go to Applications folder and drag iPhoto to the trash.

Then go to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/ drag iPhoto folder to the trash

Then go to Macintosh HD/Library/Receipts folder drag anything with the name iPhoto in it to the trash

empty the trash.

Now Insert the Applications installation disc into your computer’s optical drive (or an optical drive connected to your computer) and double-click the Install Bundled Software icon.

Follow the onscreen instructions. In the Installation Type pane, click Customize.

Click the disclosure triangle next to Bundled Applications, select the checkbox next to the application you want to install, and then click Install.

After that is done run Software Update BEFORE you try to open iPhoto.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You restarted the computer, right? Right click on it and go to Move to Trash
Customer: replied 3 years ago.




I have restarted the computer. I checked the trash and iPhoto is now in it.
I am re installing the application CD and it is writing files again.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
