Hello, it sounds like the fax is set to default instead of the printer.

Check your Printers and Faxes in the control panel and make sure the Printer is setup to be default and if it is not, then right-click on it and click default.


BEST OF LUCK!
GOD BLESS!

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. Question just got moved to my Cat.
Want to find out more from you.

How did you install this printer? From an enclosed dsik? or a download from the manufacturer website?

Is this printer connected to the USB and wireless? or just wireless?

If USB, have you tried to print that way yet? without wireless?

Let me know,

Expert:  Mike replied 8 years ago.
When you open that window, it will say Mac OS X and under it will be 10.4.11 or 10.5.7 or somethig like that.

I need you to be my eyes here and if I cannot 'see' I cannot help.

Expert:  Mike replied 8 years ago.
Ok,

Thanks for that.

Here is the link to the Support page for that printer.

Choose your OS X (10.5) and then choose the Full installer. Then download and install.

Let me know.
