Hello, and thank you for asking your question,
I am Sr. Mac Tech Support Specialist, TD, glad to assist you.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Could you provide me with the following information, so I can better assist you with your technical question:
• What version of Mac OS X are you using on your Mac?
(i.e. "Mac OS X 10.5.6 or Mac OS X 10.4.11, etc" -)
( If not sure how to check version of Mac OSX system- Click on Apple icon (Apple Menu) on upper left corner of screen- from the menu select "About this Mac" - you will see your version in the popup window)

• What brand and model of printer are you using?

• So you are able to print, but you have several jobs still "stuck"
in the printer queue?

Your answers to the questions I have submitted, will allow me to work with more detailed information, in order to effectively answer your question.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX be looking forward to your reply. Thank you!

Regards,

-TD

Thanks for your replyCustomer

Just need to make sure, again when you mention "there are several jobs are "stuck" printer will make copies"

• Are you referring to jobs that are stuck in your Printer jobs list, even though the printer still prints? Or has the printer stopped printing altogether?

I also need the model of your HP Printer if you could provide me that, as it will allow me to source more information on that model in particular.

Thanks for your help with this information, I will be watching for your reply.

jobs are stuck in printer job list

the printer has not stopped altogether, copying is OK

printer is photosmart C6280 all-in-one

sorry for delay

Thanks for your reply and no worries.

What I recommend you do is as a preliminary procedure is this:

• Click on Apple menu icon, select System Preferences> Print & Fax.

Then click the Print Queue button

That will bring up of course, the Print Jobs screen for your HP printer

Check here to see if there are any jobs. If there are, remove all of those jobs from this window.

Attempt to print again. Keep the print Jobs window open and let me know if the current print job you have disappears after the document finishes printing.

Give me an update on this process when you can, I will await your reply.

Thanks for your patience!

-TD

it is getting better... at your

#3 i find printer setup utility but no "reset printing system direction".Am i missing something. Is there an alternative..i am feeling better and would like to accept soon


So if it didn't work, here is a alternative solution. Open your web browser (Safari or Firefox) then type this : http://127.0.0.1:631/printers/ and press return.

Then delete all current and completed printer jobs.

problem...I enter my name and password XXXXX am refused for correct entries, how do i recover this information. i have not been asked for my name before, the password XXXXX not changed..it's getting better

thanks
Okay...the username and password XXXXX ask if you are installing any applications, changing system files etc. So you are changing/modify files and you need to enter the correct information. If you didn't remeber the username and password XXXXX you need to reset it.

  • Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc. Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key.
  • Choose Reset Password XXXXX Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger
  • Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.Select the user name of your original administrator account
  • Enter a new password XXXXX Click Save. Restart from the installer menu.

Now you can enter the correct password XXXXX it asks !

What Customers are Saying:

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
