I'm trying to use the Ricoh Aficio C2550 printers at my office from a Mac OSX 10.6 and the machine keeps printing pages and pages of postscript garbage.

I've found that I can use a generic PCL driver and print black and white, but that's not going to cut it.

I've proceeded through step 7 of your instructions, but now I'm stuck. The Ricoh printer is not listed in the default list of available printers.

the only way I've been able to get to it is by entering it's IP Address via the IP tab. When I type in it's IP Address it recognizes it as the Ricoh Aficio C2550 and automatically selects the right PPD. I tested it and still get Postscript garbage. Is there a particular protocol I need to select: IPP, LPD or HP Jetdirect socket?
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 7 years ago
You should be able to select PPD.. if no luck try with LPD or IPP, and last with HP.

LDP and HP Jetdirect socket result in the postscript errors I described earlier. IPP pauses the print que and prevents anything I send from going through.

Any ideas?
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 7 years ago
I will opt out so any other expert can try to help you.

You will receive an email when another expert takes your question. The new expert will see all our previous thread, so no need to explain the issue again.

Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
