Were the printer manufacturer's drivers among those updated drivers offered in the Apple
Support> downloads update page? If the printer disc has older drivers than those offered,
I'm wondering if there is a problem with one or the other set of driver options for the printer.
Have you removed the other drivers, when installing replacement drivers? There may also
be a way to reinstall the last Combo update for the system, repair permissions before & after
and hope this issue is resolved by a re-assertion of the earlier complete code set. Maybe.
If only the screen were appearing reversed, such as a chalkboard, that would be an easy
setting in Universal Access. In a printer, the chosen way could be in the printer's utility or
a setup to print dialog window. Seems so odd the printer worked OK then it doesn't.
What (if any) software updates were added to the system since the time this worked correctly?
I'd bet there are a ton of CUPS and other printer logs to sort through and hope to make
some sense of in the matter of anything printer in your OS X system logs, reports, etc!
If you had a clone of the system from a time before any later updates, you could see if the
previous system status reflected a stability now missing in the printer driver/printing setup
results. Doubtful if changing user accounts, or SafeBoot + repair disk permissions simplicity
could help resolve this. Perhaps something is either corrupted or maybe needs reinstalling.
Good luck & happy computing!
