Define the print settings defaiult on Photosmart C309 using Mac

When I installed the Photosmart C309 software on my Mac, I noticed that the HP Solution Center does not appear.  I used to use a pc, so I was familiar with the Solution Center.  I tried to reinstall the software, but still no Solution Center.  It seems that without it, I have no way to set the default print settings.  Does anyone have a solution (pun intended!) for this?


OK, thanks for that.  default 10.8 work this way - for all applications which you print, your Mac, remembers the mode in which it last impression.  There is no universal default, for example.

Try it and see if it behaves in this way.

  • Cloning of the network settings on the printer - Smart zero 4.4 clients using Xen

    I ran into an issue trying to implement for thin client network printers Smart zero with the build Z6X44017 (same question for with prior build 4.3; same question for T520s, T610s, T620s): If the printer is set by the 'user' account in the HP printer Mapping utility, it does not pass by in a published desktop, XenApp as a printer available to all.  When changing the account 'user' to the 'administrator' account, the printer is listed in the printer mapping GUI.  But it is not available on the published desktop.

    However, if the printer is CREATED or MODIFIED by the administrator via the GUI HP printer Mapping on the Xen login Panel, then it is displayed as the default printer on the published desktop.

    As we seek to implement dozens of devices at once with the same network printer queue defined, it would be useful to set up once and then clone the settings.

    Here's what I've done so far:

    1 use the GUI HP printer Mapping utility to create (in administrator mode) network print queue and check that it works on the published desktop

    2. use HPDM to capture the root > printer-mapping-Bishop and root > registry values printers from that device using a task of 'files and records.

    3. apply these registry via the job template settings to the target group of devices.

    It works very well with regard to obtaining the printer to display in the GUI of the mapping of the printers on the Xen login Panel.  However, the same problem exists: unless I go again in administrator mode in the GUI and the Edit/save the printer, it is not available on the published desktop.

    A possible solution might be to run a job to 'validate' the printer settings via a program that could be run from the command line, but I can't find such a program in the file system for the Linux client.  It's just a bug in the configuration of the printer, or a limitation of this printer MUST be configured via the GUI only?

    The local HP sales engineer for thin clients was able to track down the command of "committing" the printer settings after running the registry task to copy the settings.  It is run as a task of type Script as a template file and registry.

    Here is the command to run in the script:

    /usr/share/Manticore/plugins/printer-mapping-Mgr/wrappers/ "root/printer-mapping-mgr.

    It can be added as the second subtask under the task of file & registry.

    The complete solution is:

    1 use the GUI HP printer Mapping utility to create (in administrator mode) network print queue and check that it works on the published desktop

    2. use HPDM to capture the root > printer-mapping-Bishop and root > registry values printers from that device by using a "file and registry" tasks and save it as a template

    3 edit the template to add a second sub-task of Script to run the command ' root/printer-mapping-mgr ' /usr/share/manticore/plugins/printer-mapping-mgr/wrappers/

    4. run the task of file & registry model against the target devices.  This model will then apply these registry settings for the group target devices and run the script to validate the changes on the target devices.

  • Not able to scan from the printer to my computer control panel using the HP Photosmart 5510


    I recently bought the new HP Photosmart 5510 all in one - and I am not able to scan from my printer to my computer.

    I am however able to scan by launching the scan of the computer. I talked to HP customer earlier this evening and we ran printing + scan doctor and can't find any problems.

    I am running Windows 7-64 bit and that you have installed my wireless printer using the Installation CD supplied with the printer today.

    I could not finish troubleshooting with the technician that I talked to because I had to go to work. The person that I spoke with proposed possibly the full functionality of software downloaded from the site, which I'm happy to do, but I think that it is useless, because I have the CD of installation here. (The rep that I talked to was very nice, but I prefer not to have to uninstall and reinstall if it is not necessary)

    Because as I mentioned above, everything works perfectly and I am able to scan - but not directly from the printer itself.

    When I try to scan from my printer to my computer an error message appears on the control panel of the printer indicating that: there is no scan destination options of analysis chosen / no..

    However, I can't find anywhere with my HP software where I could add / make sure that the destinations were there. (As I could on my other printers. (IE. By the solution Center)

    This printer does not appear to be a solution center that I could find and the scanner installed with the CD icon doesn't give me any options regarding changing the settings of the parser

    I wonder:

    1. the Hp Photosmart 5510 does not have the capacity to scan from the printer control panel?

    2 OR the CD installation provided with my printer only has the base drivers as the agent of tech support suggested? Which means to scan from my printer I need to download drivers for your hp Web site?

    3. or is the problem because of something else entirely?

    Thanks for your help!

    HI Dublin,

    Follow the steps below to uninstall and reinstall the printer.

    1. open Control Panel

    2. click on uninstall a program

    3 uninstall the Photosmart 6510 in the list

  • Profiles of papers Gallery not available in the printer settings dialog box

    I have an Epson 3880, and I can't select fine art profiles in the Lightroom and PS CC printer settings dialog box. I don't have a problem with this PS6. I choose the profiles in the main screen under selection Photoshop manages colors, but they are greyed out in the settings dialog box. Same problem with Lightroom. I just sent to SP6 to print, but who's really bad at my productivity!

    What OS are you running and you install the profile in your system and accompany your 3880 printer.  Your case to your printer with Photoshop, the printer button may only be used to define profiles of him have been installed for your printer. Photoshop has nothing to do with the installation of the printer profiles.  It something you. Often when you install printer drivers in the installation process of the paper icc profiles are installed for you printer. If the profile of the paper you want to use is not you must download it from the web site of the printer maker or the web site of paper machine and install it in your operating system..

  • Cannot change the print settings

    I have a new printer, an Epson XP 430. My previous printer was also an Epson. With my old printer, when I chose to print (for a document, web page, etc.) the dialog always had an option to choose, black and white. I also could add to the presets and edit presets.

    With this printer, I can see the presets, but I can't make changes. When I click on view Presets, it is not an option for adding a new preset as it was with my old printer and remove and duplicate boxes are grayed out.

    I guess that this is due to the printer, not OS X, as I noticed the difference when I started using the new printer. Am I missing something somewhere? I rarely print in color, so I would have a preset that specifies black & white.

    Thank you.


    Since you have a new printer, you can create new presets. This is done through the printer with the selected printer dialog box, not through the page view Presets. When you select this option to print do the settings that you want to create a preset for and then click on the drop down preset menu. Select "Save current settings as preset" and enter a name for the new preset.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620: Locked out of the printer settings

    Good evening

    I was unable to print wireless so I did a network reset the unit. When I rebooted the machine, I proceeded to return to the network settings in order to capture the wireless information however I received the error "function has been locked by the administrator or the person who set up your printer".

    I'm not sure what is the problem with that I'm the one who created this printer. I assign a password to the machine, and with that, I have no option to enter in order to unlock all the features (there is usually an option under 'Tools'.).

    After some searching through the forums, I printed a wireless test and the results were a single FAILURE for Wireless on.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards

  • adjust the printer settings

    my printer has suddenly stopped printing in black ink, after installing a new cartledge. I can't find how to enter printer setting to possibly adjust the black ink. It prints in color.

    ·         What is the brand and model of your printer?

    ·         What happens when you try to print in black?

    ·         Have you received an error message?

    Method 1: I suggest you try to print a black-and-white test page and find the issue.

    Method 2: Clean the print cartridge nozzle and check for the issue. To do so follow the steps below:

    (a) unplug the printer from its

    and remove the device print cartridges. Most printers contain at least two cartridges, one for black and one for the color.

    (b) locate the small holes in the printer where the toner cartridges are installed. Put 10 drops of isopropyl alcohol in each nozzle using a pipette.

    (c) use a soaked q-tip with alcohol to swab around the nozzles to loosen and remove dried ink that has accumulated on top. Let the alcohol evaporates.

    (d) run the printer cleaning and diagnostic test. Repeat steps 2 through 4 as required until the printer produces clean copy.

    Also check the settings of the printer.
