Resetting the printing system can help troubleshoot problems using a printer on your Mac.
- Click the Apple icon in the top left.
- Click System Preferences.
- Click on Print & Fax.
- Right click or Ctrl+Click on the left column where the printers are listed and click Reset printing service. This will delete any printers and jobs currently on the system.
- Now you may re-add your printer(s). If they do not appear, then try installing the latest drivers from the printer disc or manufacturers website.
Perfect thank you
saved me from calling my IT guy after my system crashed. thanks much. And he probably would have just googled the problem anyway!
Worked like a charm!
Good stuff. Thanks!

Thanks for solving a frustrating problem !
Thanks – spot on!
I still can’t believe how well it worked, thanks
i love you
OMG what kat said
you are my best friend right now, I have been messing with that printer for days now!!!
wow…..thanks so much! Just had my hard drive replaced (due to Apple recall) and although everything else worked on my computer after installing everything from my external hard drive, my Canon printer did not print…had error: No pages found!.
This worked!!!!! 5 minutes and wella! Done!
Thank you again, Carl Norton, for taking the time to post your solution.
You’ve made alot of frustrated people happy!
Fixed the problem right away. Thank you!
Worked a treat, thank-you. This was yet another little irritation occurring after upgrading Office works. The problem only occurred with Excel.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! This error has been driving me nuts. Your fix works great!
worked a treat after trying many other things! Thanks
Worked great after I closed out the “system preferences” box after I did the reset. I also closed the documents I was trying to print and opened them up again and then they printed! No more “missing pages.” Thanks so much!
Thanx very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Top man Carl!
Perfect! Simple to follow and sorted things out. Life saver!!
