"Problem When Printing" error on Mac Mini

Hi all,
I just recently updated my Mac Mini from 10.3 to 10.4. Instead of Archive and Install I formatted and did a clean install.
I have my printer set up, however whenever I try and print anything from any application I get a very unhelpful "Problem when printing" error, and nothing prints.
I also get the same error when trying to save to PDF.
My printer is a HP Deskjet 3750, and the driver is the one included with 10.4 (as per HP's instruction), but I don't think it's a driver problem as Save to PDF gives me the same error.
I've already tried repairing permissions. Anyone know what could be causing this. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Bugger. PSR is often a winner
You could try installing Gutenprint 5.0.1 available from Sourceforge (it's about 15MB). It's an updated version of the included GIMP-Print drivers and may repair/replace/install some of the core files. Otherwise you may have to contact Apple and see if you can get 10.4.9 mailed to you.

  • Sleep problem on new 1.5GHz Mac mini

    Anyone else having problems with their Intel-based Mac mini not waking up after it's been in sleep mode for a while (1-2 hours)?
    The mini's light stops pulsating when trying to wake it up from sleep, but only stays dim. It never actually wakes up. A hard boot doesn't even fix the problem. Only after it's been unplugged and plugged back in does it start back up.
    It also has had problems using a Samsung LCD monitor (VGA). Display preferences showed multiple refresh rates. When one of these refresh rates was chosen, the screen went black. Did everything to fix the problem (zapped PRAM, deleted preferences, etc) but ended up erasing the hard drive and reinstalling everything over again. The sleep issue persists but the display issue seems to be fixed.
    Thought this may be related to the Intel integrated graphics. Thanks for any help!

    OK - best to collect some data.
    Do you have another computer in your home network. It would be good to see if the unresponsive mini will respond to network pings. Use the Network Utility - go to the ping tab, and enter the name of your mini. (The name is shown in the sharing preference pane) add .local to the end if you don't have a name server set up.
    Second - you may want to turn on Remote Login and Apple Remote Desktop so you can log into the mini through the network and shut things down cleanly (as well as look at what really is happening)
    Third - open the Console App - and look over the system.log and the console.log.
    If I had to guess (and I don't have near enough info to make a real call) - I would guess it's not sleeping, but hung. I was able to get FrontRow in a tizzy switching resolutions all over the place and without remote log in - I never would have known and probably given up and pulled the plug.
    Sorry I can't solve it out of the gate - but if it happens again - we can show you some tricks to narrow down the causes...

  • Problems when printing help topics from OHJ

    We have encountered some persistent problems when printing help topics from Oracle Help for Java (Ice Browser).
    NOTE: When we print the same source files from Oracle Help for the Web, the printing problems are gone.
    (1) Spacing Errors (all printers had identical results)
    Text with special formatting (<b>, <i>) often has either too much space or not enough space.
    Links often have extra spaces underlined before or after the link, itself.
    (2) When printing multiple help topics from the TOC (an entire branch in the tree):
    On some printers, no graphics print correctly, but instead print as one of the following: 1. empty box the size of one character, 2. black box the size of one character, 3. black box the size of the original graphic. We could not detect a pattern that caused 1, 2, or 3.
    NOTE: all graphics are bit maps (screen captures) that were generated in the same manner.
    NOTE: if these same help topics are printed one at a time form Oracle Help for Java, the graphics print fine.
    Is this a problem with the Ice Browser?
    Thanks for the help,
    Wendy Studinski

    There are a known issue with the ICEBrowser printing in some circumstances. The laying out of text by the ICE Browser relies on font metrics (being able to measure the width of a run of text in a given font). On screen it looks great, but when printing, even though the GraphicsConfiguration for the printer is being used, these widths are sometimes off, which can result in text running together at boundaries between text styles. We're not sure what to do about this problem, and we've reported it to IceSoft.
    Not every font has this problem, so varying the font you are using might help the appearance when printed.
    The other problem you report, problems with the images when printing multiple topics, is something that we will look into.

  • When I connect my Mac Mini 2011 with Lion to a TV via HDMI and an earphone cable is plugged in, it´s not possible to choose sound out via hdmi, as opposed to connection via minidisplay port. Anybody knows how to fix this?

    When I connect my Mac Mini 2011 with Lion to a TV via HDMI and an earphone cable is plugged in, it´s not possible to choose sound out via hdmi, as opposed to connection via the minidisplay port. Anybody knows how to fix this?

    Was just on the phone with Apple about this.
    The solution was as follows for me anyway...
    Go to your Finder
    Choose the Go Menu
    Choose Computer
    Choose your Macintosh Hard Drive
    Choose your "Library" Folder
    Choose the "Preferences" Folder
    There should be a folder called "Audio"
    Move that whole folder to the trash
    Empty the Trash
    Restart from the Apple Menu
    When you are back up and running;
         Choose System Preferences from the Apple Menu
         Choose Sound
          In the output tab you should now be able to make the HDMI "Sticky"
          Enjoy your sound over HDMI and no more dirty knees or broken backs unplugging the desktop speakers!

    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened

    Go to the "File" menu, then "Print." The window that appears will have three drop-down menus at the top.
    The first is labeled "Printer",
    The second is "Presets".
    The third is unlabeled but has "Copies & Pages" selected by default.
    Click on that third menu and select "Firefox" near the bottom of the list.

  • Problem when printing " " using XSL

    I have a problem when printing the "<" .It is always printed as
    "&#60;" in the HTML file.
    I wish to transfer a Javascript text . I tried
    using CDATA . This is an extract of a portion in my XSL File
    which uses CDATA.
    <![CDATA[
    function createLOV(lov_name, array_touse) {
    document.writeln("<select name='" + lov_name + "'>");
    for (var i=0; i < array_touse.length; i++) {
    document.writeln("<option value='" + array_touse[i] + "'>" +
    array_touse[i] + "</option>");
    }]]>
    And this is what the HTML file contains
    function createLOV(lov_name, array_touse) {
    document.writeln("&#60;select name='" + lov_name + "'>");
    for (var i=0; i &#60; array_touse.length; i++) {

    array_touse[i] + "&#60;/option>"); }
    document.writeln("&#60;/select>");}
    I tried using the <xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes"> but in
    vain.
    If i use < or &x3C; , i still get &#60; in the HTML file.
    How do I solve this problem. I'm using XSQL Servlet with JSDK2.1

    Currently, the parser does not support the xsl:output and

    in a future release.

  • Performance problem when printing - table TSPEVJOB big size

    Hi,
    in a SAP ERP system there is performance problem when printing because table TSPEVJOB has many millions of entries.
    This table has reached a considerable size (about 90 Gb); db size is 200 Gb.
    Standard reports have been scheduled correctly and kernel of SAP ERP system is updated.
    I've tried to scheduled report RSPO1041 (instead of RSPO0041) to reduce entries but it is not possible run it during normal operations because it locks the printing system.
    Do you know why this table has increased ?
    Are there any reports to clean this table or other methods ?
    Thanks.
    Maurizio Manera

  • Problem when printing booklets prints pages 1,2 and 11 as if I wants to print all

    I am using XP and 2000 MS word
    I am having a problem when printing booklets from time to time. I get it ready to print in booklet form with 12 pages and my printer gives me the options. “Print all”  “current page”  “selection” or “pages”  Because it is booklet I want to print the first 4 pages to be folded and glued as a small book. When I inter 1-4 as the example shows some times it prints OK but about a week later it prints pages 1,2 and 11 as if it wants to print all. I thought it was the printer but think it could be in some setting of the word program or my computer it self.

    Also does this (i.e. prints web pages over several pages despite changing settings) on my laptop at work with an HP printer. This started when I upgraded to Firefox 9.0.1.

  • Problems installing OSX Lion - new Mac Mini 2011

    Hi!
    I'm having major problem with my brand new Mac Mini.
    I wanted to upgrade it right away after reading so many succeful upgrading reports on various forums so I bought a 120GB Intel 320 SSD disk and 2x4 GB of Kingston 1333mhz ram. I swapped the drives right away and idiotically used to original drive in a case to create an external installation USB-drive (my 4GB USB drives didn't work).
    I then created a bootable USB-disk with the external original drive and tried to install but only get the circle with slash after selecting the drive in the "options" menu. If I remove the USB-drive I get a flashing folder icon. If start holding down Command + S I get a message saying that the "version of OSX is not supported on this platform".
    I also tried using the Recovery Assistant HD to create a bootable recovery tool but that gives the same results.
    In short:
    I can't install OSX Lion on a brand new Mac Mini with upgraded HD and Ram. I don't have the original installation anymore.
    Am I out of luck?

    Internet Recovery solved this problem. Option+Command+R.

  • Color management problem when printing

    (sorry for the double post, since the problem affect both illustrator and photoshop and in fact also indesign) in decided to repost it here in the photoshop forum. thank you for any help!)
    hi ! im in charge of a big print lab in a university. All macpro quad running on 10.6.4, CS5 all updated.
    i  have a major problem when printing from all 3 CS5 apps : Illustrator  (being the worst), photoshop and indesign : each one produces a  different print even if i use the SAME color management options (the  application manage color using my own color profile file created with a  i-one tool from greta macbeath and using eye-one match 3). im printing  on a XEROX 7750gx laser printer. very cool printer never had trouble  with colors before with it, in any case it was always the software part  that was causing color problems (like i suspect in this case).
    how  can 3 softwares under the same application collection and brand, using  the same color profile and options (IDENTICAL ! it's triple check all  the options!) can produce 3 different prints when printing the same  image (it's a color psd created under photoshop CS5) ?!
    i  remember having some trouble like this when we first got CS1 in our lab,  but not this bad... i've checked everything... i realy don't know how  to fix this problem...
    the best setting so far is in  Photoshop when the application manage the color and using my color  profile file in perceptual mode. best output so far, not the best i had  in the past, CS4 was way more perfect with color management.
    i  realy need to find a solition 'cause the students expect the color to  be almost perfect (and they almost were using CS4 in the past...
    thanx for any tips & help !
    +

    many thanx for your reply & help.
    i've just recalibrated everything in my workflow : my screen (perfect!), my xerox 7750 color laser printer. i've recreated a new color profile file for the xerox color. and the same thing is happening : a kind of pink color all over my prints and every adobe's applications is printing different results. in photoshop i can manage the problem when forcing to print in perceptual mode. not perfect but it's fine. and with the other software specialy like ACROBAT and INDESIGN there's no option like this so it prints very badly. only option is to print in adobe 1998 rgb or SWOP cmyk (depending of the color space of the image of course)... the image is use for my test is RGB. images in CMYK are doing the same exact thing.
    by the way for calibration is use an x-rite (greta macbeth) eye-one tool with eye-one match 3.6.3. i calibrate the screens and create color profile with this tool since ADOBE CS1 and never had this much trouble with colors...
    here's a capture from photostop CS5 print dialog. when using the option "match print colors" you can see the image with all the PINK NOISE when using the print in RELATIVE colormetric mode (at the bottom right). using perceptual is "fine" (not color perfect but OK).
    http://i53.tinypic.com/qzge12.jpg
    it's worst in Acrobat and Indesign since i can't use perceptual colormetric print mode...
    im realy starting to think that i better uninstal CS5 and go back to CS4...
    thanx for your help !

  • Problem picking up a Windows XP shared HP DJ1220C printer on a Mac mini

    Have a HP Desk Jet 1220C as a shared printer under XP Pro SP2, accessible to all other pc's on the network but cannot get the Mac mini to pick it up on the network even though I have no problem picking up all the shared hd drives on the pc's through the network via the Mac.

    Hi Wayne
    Thanks for your reply.
    *>Your posts have been a little short of detail.*
    I was being careful not to overload the locals with too much info...
    *>1. How are you sharing the printer on the PCs?*
    ermm...usual way, PRINTER>SHARING>ON(assign printer share name)
    *>2. Did you try to share using Bonjour (on the Windows machines)?*
    I have, but can only get this to work if my printer is plugged into the Mac and not the default other way round.
    *>2. Have you followed macster's directions for joining a Windows workgroup?*
    This produces no results or information
    *>4. Did you then follow macster's directions for connecting to Windows shares?*
    This is how I have accessed the PC's disks and files which the Mac did from the get go. However, this does not pick up any shared PC printers.
