Bekijk de volledige versie : suddenly unable to print

04-05-2010, 13:00
I have a samsung ml-2510 printer attached to the router via a usb hub. It's been working great for quite a while and now suddenly I cannot print. It still has ink and paper.


printer.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04E8 pid 0x327E
printer.c: usblp0 Device ID string [65]='MFG:Samsung;CMD:GDI;MDL:ML-2510 Series;CLS:PRINTER;STATUS:BUSY;'
printer.c: usblp0 Device ID string [65/max 1552]='MFG:Samsung;CMD:GDI;MDL:ML-2510 Series;CLS:PRINTER;STATUS:BUSY;'
printer.c: Parsing USBLPID...

device still exist:

ls /dev/usb/

and I can still see the printer being shared on the network via samba. As you can see above the status is busy for some reason. I've restarted the printer and router to try to clear it, but no luck.

If I try to run lpq or lpr I get a segmentation fault.

Any ideas?

try to connect it directly to PC for testing. I guess the problem is either in windows or in printer itself.

What is your OS version? I've noticed that in some cases in Win7 the printer attributes get lost and it is always offline ...
