How do I set up OSX 10.4.9 to print to an HP OfficeJet K550dtn?
Posted on 2007-03-29
I have a brand new Mac Mini (intel based) and have run all software updates.
I want to print to a networked HP OfficeJet K550dtn.
The printer is configured on the network and I can print directly to it from all PCs on the network.
The Mac is on the same network, and can see it, but does not have the K550 drivers. (It keeps trying to use "HP Inkjet 3.3" or "HP Officejet 9100 series PS v3010.107")
I have run the software that came on the CD (and can browse to the printer with the installed utilities, check ink levels, set network configuration, etc.), and have even installed the newest Mac drivers from HP specifically for OSX 10.4.
The last time I tried to print to this from the Mac Mini I got about 30 pages of garbage.
I have the HP OfficeJet Pro K550dtwn (the same printer but with a wireless card built in) at home, and my wife's iBook G4 prints to it nicely, and recognizes that it is a K550. (after installing the drivers from the CD)
Any idea how to install a new driver? (other than clicking the "setup" button and choosing "install driver"... because it still doesn't appear in the driver list after doing that.)
