  • Help please it is a printing problem through airport express from pc

    Sorry I'm new on here too but I didn't get help with my last problem at all but I was able to figured it out on my own. No luck with the following problem though.
    Here is the problem My printer works I can print from my Mac but not from my pc. It recognizes it and it says printing and the printer actually uses a page but it comes out clean/clear. I can print to this printer from my mac like I said but not from my pc. I have rebooted, restarted and deleted and installed the printer back again, but still nothing. I mean it works, it just doesn't print anything on the page. Just a blank page. The printer is connected to an airport express and it works and it has been restarted and everything. The printer was jump started too. It works great with my mac but my pc can not print to it. I have another printer connected to my airport extreme base and that one can be used by both my mac and my pc. It works just fine. So Why won't this other printer work with my pc but yes with my mac. Both printers are connected to the network through AEBS and AX through usb, Not directly to any computers. Both printers are HP photosmart allinone 2575 working just fine with both and HP 6210 officejet all in one printer working only with the mac. Remember it is responsive with my pc and it says printing and it actually grabs a page and prints it out blank. Oh and it does have ink, I have made sure.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my post. and I'm kinda new so Forgive me if I repeated myself too much, to get the message across. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks once again.

    I have used the website and attempted to add the printer manually. However, it still says "collecting printer status" under port 9100, or "printer offline" for port 9101. Do you have any other ideas? It works flawlessly on my wife's apple laptop.

  • Poor sound quality Through Airport Express

    Airport Express is connected to home stereo. sound quality is very poor?? I've tried it from both my computer & Ipad. Both are equally bad??? Music sounds normal on Computer & Ipad but terrible through the Airport express

    Music sounds normal on Computer & Ipad but terrible through the Airport express
    Temporarily, I suggest that you connect a pair of headphones directly to the AirPort Express. How does that sound?
    If things sound good, you know that the Express is functioning correctly and that you likely have have a problem in the connecting cable from the Express to your stereo equipment, as Koloss suggests.

  • No colors when printing through AirPort Express?

    I knew I couldn't use all the features (e.g. scanning) of my HP all-in-one printer F2180 through AirPort Express instead of USB. But is it normal I can't print in colors? Can it be fixed?

    I am having the same problem. I am running an AirPort Extreme to a HP Deskjet F4180.
    I spent two weeks on the phone and email with HP and they finally told me that it was a problem with Apple.
    I just got off the phone with Apple support and they told me it is a driver issue which they have no control over. They told me to see if somebody in this forum had a work around or to search the web for a generic driver that "may" fix the problem.
    If I find an answer I will let you know.
    Good luck!!

  • Can't print from PC notebook through Airport Express

    I am using a Sony Vaio notebook running Windows XP. I just purchased an Airport Express along with a PowerBook G4 and have my HP DeskJet 5650 connected through the Airport Express. My PowerBook is having no trouble communicating with the printer, but my PC notebook cannot "find" the printer. In talking to Apple Support on this issue, I was told to download Bonjour for Windows, which I did. Once Bonjour was installed, I was still unable to "find" the printer and, additionally, I began receiving an error message stating "The application has failed to start because dnssd.dll was not found." I reinstalled Bonjour to be safe, but the problem continued. Apple Support then suggested I set up an IP print share as an alternative solution, but that ultimately failed to work because my specific HP printer model is not listed. Strangely, and maybe the bigger issue as I attempted to set up the IP print share, when I entered my IP address as 10.0.1.1 which named the port IP_10.0.1.1, it told me the port name was already in use and wouldn't let me continue.
    I'm confused and frustrated. Apple Support was as helpful as they could be, but have thrown in the towel and deemed this problem outside the scope of their support.
    Can anyone please help?

    Thanks, iFelix...
    Unfortunately, I've tried all three methods and am still not able to bring my printer onboard.
    Using the first method above, first of all, when I attempt to create a new TCP/IP port and enter 10.0.1.1 as the IP address, which then turns the port name into IP_10.0.1.1, I receive a message that the port name is already in use. When I attempt to go with "Use the following port:" and select the IP_10.0.1.1 port, I am unable to locate my printer on the list. When I attempted to get around that by using the third method above, it allowed me to go through the process having chosen another HP DeskJet "stand-in" printer, but when it came to the end of the process and I asked it to print a test page, it failed to work. I even attempted to get around the issue by selecting the "Have Disk" option in the printer window, put my printer driver disk in, and was still unable to get it to recognize my printer.
    With method number two, Bonjour continues to not be able to sense my printer.
    In case I didn't make this clear earlier, this PC notebook has never had any problem printing to the printer when it was connected directly by USB, the problem is only now a result of having connected the printer to the Airport Express.
    If you have any other advice or suggestions, I'd appreciate it more than you can imagine.

  • I can't print wirelessly using Airport Express.  I have my HP printer connected to a USB hub, and the hub to the Airport Express, but when I select the HP from the printer list, my MacBook says the printer is "off-line" - even when it is not.

    I can't print wirelessly using Airport Express.  I have my HP printer connected to a USB hub, and the hub to the Airport Express, but when I select the HP from the printer list, my MacBook says the printer is "off-line" - even when it is not.  I've tried several USB connectors, and several different ports on my USB hub; same result.  I need to have the HP connected to the hub 'cause from there it's connected to our desktop Mac.

  • How can I print from my IPAD3 to a printer connected to Airport Express?

    How can I print from my IPAD3 to a printer connected to Airport Express? I have a HP printer and I can print from all my Windows PC and iMAC in the house. How can I print from my IPaD?

    You cannot.
    The USB port on the AirPort Express allow sharing a printer with Windows and Mac OS X, not with iOS:
    "Wireless printing over USB requires a compatible printer and OS X v10.2.7 or later, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7":
    http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/#wireless-printing
    "AirPrint-enabled printers  connected using Bluetooth or shared through a USB port of a Mac, PC, AirPort Base Station, or Time Capsule are not supported":
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4356
    The HP ePrint app also does not provide such functionality:
    Can I print from the HP ePrint mobile app using USB or Bluetooth?
    No. You can only print directly to supported HP printers on a local wireless network.

  • How do I set up wireless printing to my Airport Express?

    I run my 17" MBP through a DLink wireless router which is located next to my modem in my basement. I have an Airport Express station (not the Base or the Extreme) which I used to use for wireless iTunes serving to my stereo, but which I now wish to use as a wireless print server in my study upstairs. I am not, however, using the Airport Express station for internet.
    I can't find any useful instructions or step-by-step guides to set up a printer on my Airport Express. Can anybody point out how to do this and/or refer me to the appropriate KB article?
    Many thanks,

    Yes but they don't seem to be making it to the post to be deleted Punctuation seems to be a possible cause
    If your goal is to use one network with the AE and your other router online the AE needs to be connected to the modem as the base station as the AE can only be a wireless bridge with an Airport Extreme or connect the AE via ethernet from your other router
    The printing is usually as easy as plugging in the printer and selecting it from your printer list AE is a print server and I use a 4 port hub with 4 printers connected They used to be listed as Rendezvous printers but lately mine are just showing as a connected printer but is printing wirelessly
    Finder > Applications >Utilities > Airport Setup and Airport Admin utilities are pretty straight forward for setting up the routers. I have had and there are still issues being reported with the AE and certain configurations. My first gen MBP1.1 could see it but not connect and my MBP2.2 connected immediately and settings on both machines were the same.

  • Can't connect to internet through Airport Express anymore

    Suddenly, my PowerBook can't connect to the internet through Airport Express. Monday late afternoon--everything was fine. Put it in sleep, come back a few hours later, can't connect.
    Thing is, Airport/wireless is working. Can stream audio to my home stereo.
    And the DSL/modem are working. If I connect the machine via ethernet directly, I'm online.
    Saw that some other users began having problems with USB/printer connections Monday. Could my problem be related?
    What gives?
    Any ideas?

    Hello mnkyby. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    It sounds like your AirPort Express Base Station (AX) in not getting a proper IP address from your modem.
    Try this ...
    o Connect to the AX's wireless network, and then, run the AirPort Admin Utility.
    o Go to the Internet tab.
    o Note the value for IP address. (Note: Do not list it here on the forum, just note what it is.)
    o Is the IP address what you would expect from your ISP or is it something like: 196.254.x.x?
    If the latter, try the following ...
    Modem/Router Power Recycling - Quick
    o Power-off the DSL/Cable modem, AX, & computer(s); Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the DSL/Cable modem; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the AX; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)
    If this fails to get the modem to "recognize" the Internet router, then try the "Full" version.
    Modem/Router Power ReCycling - Full
    o Power-off the DSL/Cable modem, AX, & computer(s). (Wait at least 30 minutes. If possible, leave the modem off overnight.)
    o Power-on the DSL/Cable modem; Wait at least 15 minutes.
    o Power-on the AX; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)

  • Printer recommendations for airport express

    Hi all,
    I posted a question regarding printer compatibility with airport express. I already bought two and both were glitchy. I am trialing a canon s520 with the view of buying the new model. I put up a post, and got a lot of answers. Unfortunately some say one thing and some say the other. I have noticed that when there is a serious issue with apple equipment, the answers become garbled like this. BTW the s520 hangs a lot. So canon is out. Best advice i got from a couple of posts was dont both with wireless printing via AE. Buy a printer with its own wireless set up.
    Dont get me wrong, i love the discussion groups and the advice i get.
    My question is this..
    Does airport express really work PROPERLY for wireless printing. I thought is was great feature. Would love to continue using it. But since tiger, i seem to have had a lot of time wasting problems. Is apple losing it... And surely they must have a list of recommended printers to work with AE.

    My question is this..
    Does airport express really work PROPERLY for
    wireless printing.
    Yes I have managed to get various printers working PROPERLY with my Airport base stations.
    And surely they must have a list
    of recommended printers to work with AE.
    There is the unofficial list.
    The iFelix unofficial Airport Extreme and Airport Express Printer Compatibility List
    http://www.ifelix.co.uk/tech/1013.html
    This is an unofficial list of USB printers which are are compatible with the AirPort Extreme Base Station and Airport Express. Printers in bold have been added to the original list that Apple provided. Printers in dark red are in fact the only printers I have personally tested.
    Please also note that due to changes in the firmware of both the Airport Extreme base station and the introduction of the Airport Express some printers which are in this list may no longer in fact be compatible.

  • Printer connected to Airport Express USB port won't come online after firmware 7.6 upgrade. I've tried backing up to 7.5.2, but it still shows offline. It is a Canon iP4600 printer and I'm running OS 10.6.8. I've powered everything down and still no go.

    I have an iP4500, which I assume is quite similar to your model.
    I had to reset the printing system to get things printing again. Only takes a few minutes and no problems at all since I did it a week ago or so.
    Plug the printer into the USB port on the Express and restart the printer.
    Open System Preferences (gear icon on the dock) and then open Print and Fax
    Right-Click in the printer area on the left and select Reset Printing System
    Then click the + (plus) button at the bottom of the printer list to install the printer again.

  • When I connect my iphone directly to my receiver then connect to spotify, it plays through both speakers but when I connect wirelessly through airport express it only comes out through one speaker. Any thoughts?

    When I connect my iphone directly to the receiver through a cable, it plays Spotify just fine but when I try to play wirelessly through Airport Express, it only plays through one speaker. Any thoughts?

    yeah, that's what I figured.. I guess I'll try now to figure out exactly how to do that!

    Take a look at Printopia to see if it will do what you want.

  • If I have a normal printer plus an airport express device, do I need a wifi router as well?

    If I have a normal printer plus an airport express device, do I need a wifi router as well?

    Thanks LexSchellings
    Eventhough if i connect it with the USB cable, but then i still need a wifi router to connect between Ipad and printer, am I right?

  • Will Windows 7 print to a printer connected to Airport Express

    I have a late 2010 Macbook Pro with Lion. Just did a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit using bootcamp. Hooked up my printer via USB directly to the MBP while in Windows and loaded printer software. Prints fine. Then removed USB cable from MBP and re-connected it to Airport Express. Windows finds and connects to my Airport Express fine. When I try to print a document, Windows does not see the printer on Airport Express. Will windows not print to a printer on Airport Express or do I need to somehow tell Windows that the printer is on Airport Express? The printer prints fine from the mac side of my computer.

    BobTheFisherman wrote:
    You have to tell Windows to print to a network printer. Did you set up the network printer in Windows? How many printers do you see in Windows? If only the USB printer shows up then you did not tell Windows about the network printer.
    In Windows Start > Devices and Printers > Add Printer. Make sure you select the network printer to add not a local printer.
    After some more research, I found that I needed to download and run Bonjour. Which I did, and it seemed to load fine. I then went to the printer properties, port tab, and went to IP_local and selected config port. In the printer name and address box I put 10.0.1.1 (for airport extreme) and selected Apply. After this when I try to print, I actually get "printer ready" in the print dialoge box. When I select print, the doc goes to the print que and it says "printing" then disappears, but nothing prints. I have done research on THIS issue now and have found many others with the same issue, but not sure of the answer yet. Maybe I need to use Generic Postscript, but I am not sure where this is.
