Do you encounter issues while printing on your Mac OS? Don’t panic as you can fix the problems by following some simple steps.
Provided below are some easy steps that you should follow if you want to resolve printing issues on Mac OS:
- Make sure that your printer is firmly connected to your Mac device. Plug it into an electrical outlet, and turn it on.
- If the printer is on the network, check whether your Mac device and the printer are still on the same network. If the network has several printers, check which printer you select—it may not be the same one you think you chose.
- If you are using a shared printer connected to another Mac, make sure the Mac has Mac OS X v10.5. Don’t forget to turn on the sharing option.
