Right to Repair



Original post by: Toni Shiurba ,


I've been getting that error message for a month while trying to solve the problem by re-connecting the cables to the computer, downloading printer software updates and trying different options like "print using system dialog" and "print using pdf preview". My printer is only a couple of years old (at the most 3). I thought it might be because I downloaded a new version "MacOS High Sierra". Nothing I do fixes the problem. There are no paper jams but when it starts to print, half-way through, it stops, ejects the partially printed document and starts wildly beeping. Seems wrong for a printer not to last.
