Mac Printing : OS 10.5 : Any job sent to any print goes 'On Hold'
Hoping you can help me out as this has got me completely stumped.
I have 4 iMacs running 10.5.8 and connecting via ethernet to a HP Colour Laserjet 5550.
3 of the iMacs are working fine and printing without any problems.
1 however, has a printing issue. The iMac can see the network and I can connect to the HP via it's web interface. When I install the printer on the iMac as an IPD printer, I enter the IP address and the iMac auto-detects the correct printer driver, which is, (HP Color Laserjet 5550 v3010.107).
I select the printer from the Print & Fax Preference Pane and the printer queue appears, then fro the Printer menu, I select Print Test Page. The testpage.ps appears in the queue, but is 'On Hold'.
There is no request for authentication.
This problem occurs if I try printing from any other program. I have installed the printer as IP -> IPD, IP-> HP JetDirect and More Printers -> HP IP Printing.
The same problem occurs with all. I have also tried installing other printers such as a HP DesignJet 130 and I get the same problem with that as well.
I have reset the iMacs printing system by holding down the Option key and clicking on the "-" button. This deleted all the installed printers and reset the printing system, I then restarted the iMac and re-installed the printer.
The same problem occurred.
Has anyone had this issue before and if so, please let me know how you fixed it?
