The print job from the PC does not seem to get to the printer. The printer is in ready state (green light is on but not flashing as when it's printing). Used to be able to print when directly connected to the PC, and had worked for a while when setup as network printer.
It's possible that the printer has lost its IP address somehow as mine did. I uninstalled the printer and then reinstalled it. When I reinstalled the printer, it found or assigned an IP address (apparently one it liked) and commenced printing again. I thought for a time that the NIC in the printer was toast but that is not how things turned out. I used the "sync" program then to find and observe the printer with its new IP address.

Is there an available driver for the ML-2851ND printer that would allow printing documents from PageMaker 7on a Power Mac running OS 9.3?
Generally curling paper means the paper isn't sitting correctly in the tray OR you're not using correct weight paper. Check the manual for recommended paper weight, and make sure the paper is centered in the tray.
If you've checked that with no result, it's possible the fuser is either too hot or the paper is being run too slow past the fuser (either of which would cause the paper to curl due to heat exposure). In that case, the printer will need service.
Open the Toner cartridge bay (complete front panel, pull on front corners where thumb grooves are seen). Pull out toner cartridge, then reach into the printer and pull the page from the feed path. Replace toner cartridge, flip up front cover and latch securely, printer should reset to green indicator light.

I have a 2851nd printer, we need to network to a static network. How do we network?????
Under software, look for "Set IP". Install that & you can configure a static IP.

Blinking red light
I would like to know the meaning of a continuous blinking red light on my 2851ND printer?
When I sent a print jot to the printer I get the following message
"Network Printer status is not available"
I have to turn the printer "off" then back "on" then wait about 40 seconds before it will print. I'm running Win 7 64 bit with a wired network. This is the second printer that does the same thing, the first one was returned. This is very repeatable it does this on almost every print job!
My printer, ML-2851ND, will print one side of the page, feed the page out to flip it, but only take in the page half way before it stops and goes into error mode. Is there something I can clean or fix that will take care of this problem? Currently, you have to stand at the printer and help it take in each page as it goes back to print the second side.
I have a lot of documents saved as PDF where the print goes right up to the left margin. my former Samsung 1740 printed these just fine, but this printer cuts off about a quarter in on the left margin and I have played with the printer and driver settings and can't seem to get this to change. Any options?
