Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The message 'Printer filter failed' is typical of MAC OS X or Apple systems, where the printer's driver, installed to aid the computer in printing properly to the printer, has become corrupted.
The advisable thing to do is, first, to try a reset of the printing system.
(If you need instructions on how to do so, let me know, please.)
After that if it still does not work, does not print, or produces an error message, the thing to do is to
uninstall the printer's drivers on your computer
restart your computer
and re-install the printer's drivers onto your computer (from a download page appropriate for your computer's MAC OS X 10.x version - so if you need instructions on how to do so, and what download page to go to, please Reply To Expert, with your computer's MAC OS X 10.x version.)
