That's what I thought. So now at least we know, it's not a hardware defect but a common issue caused by outdated software. Teorema, did you talk to Samsung about this? What did they respond?
I called them and they say they are not going to provide new drivers, since Apple "broke" the working drivers with constantly changing the printing apis in Mac OS X.
I, of course, see this differently. Since I payed for their hardware - printer manufacturers are in the tight spot to do the move and update their old drivers. It can't be that hard. But it's just what they want: they want the customer to throw away their old printer and buy a new one. That's how economy works nowadays - trashing perfectly functional things and replacing them with new (sometimes even worse) products. But looking at this globally I can't agree and am not willing to take this from Samsung / HP or any other printer manufacturer.
So I'd love to hear what Samsung is telling you, when you call them, Tearema.
