Thread Details

Welcome all! Wave

Given the direction technology has taken us, this thread is looooong overdue. It will house all information regarding printing issues, NOT limited to Brick's, RedPlum, Java, etc. issues, it will also include information about printing to iPads (or other tablets), iPods, and the apps required to use those devices, i.e. AirPrint, Printopia, etc..

I am hoping that those who have achieved success with printing from tablets and i-devices will share their advice regarding purchasing printers that are compatible.

If you are aware of helpful/informative posts on SD regarding this topic, please use the wiki and link directly to those posts so that others can (hopefully) garner some good info, too.


THANKS!!!! Smilie

I would love to know the answer to this as well. I have a mac and since redplum upgraded I can no longer print any RP supported coupons (including Target EEK! ). It says the same thing... missing plug-in. Doesn't work in Chrome because chrome doesn't support that java or whatever but it doesn't work in Safari either. My RP and Target coupons won't print.

AND to make matters even sadder...my smartsource coupons won't print on my mac either...says Java needs upgraded but I do indeed have the most up to date Java installed.

Anyone???
I answered later that day.

I installed Firefox, looked under add-ons and downloaded everything they had with "Java" in the name (3 or 4 add-ons, I believe). Something worked. Not sure what exactly but now it works (in FF only).

Those having Java issues in Firefox, go to your plug-ins and make sure that the Java platform is updated and that it is ENABLED.

I am having the Coupons.com Print 3 to a page problem. It cuts off the 3rd coupon's barcode! I have lost a couple good coupons this way. Is there any way to fix this?

solved my own problem!wave

How did you do that?
I have the same issue with Smart Source coupons. They also print with words messed up and nothing can be read (except for barcodes, luckily).

When I print SmartSource coupons, they print without the image of the item in the left hand box. Everything else is fine, expect no product image--just blank. What can I do to fix this and will stores accept the coupon?

I have the above problems. I have found out that they fix on their own. I print from few Macs and they all have the same Java version and they all print differently, so I stopped paying attention.

I have never tried to redeem that messed up coupons, only the ones with no images. I have never had problems redeeming them. HTH!

I posted this in the wags thread but I thought someone here might be able also.

I am trying to print out the Walgreens Friends&Family coupons for this Saturday. When I go to the link: http://www.walgreens.com/topic/pr...family.jsp and then click on the "print coupons" button, it prints out a page that contains the walgreens logo in the upper left hand corner and a picture of the balance rewards card in the right-hand corner and the small print about the promotion at the bottom of that page. The rest of my sheet is blank. What am I doing wrong?

Does someone have a link directly to the page containing the pdf of the coupon? If so I know I could get that to print.

Thank you.

Has anybody else had any problems printing from bettycrocker.com or pillsbury,com? This has been going on for over a month. I have tried a whole bunch of things, but I keep getting that the coupon manager plugin has crashed using FF. I also tried IE, but I keep getting an illegal operation error and it says that the page must be closed.

It's strange that this is happening, since I can print the bricks coupons from other sites such as coupons.com. I have missed out on last months and so far this months coupons! I have spent over an hour looking for technical suggestions. I have tried a number of things, but it still does not work.

Thanks, if anybody has any solutions!

Something weird is going on with Pillsbury.com, Boxtops4edu and coupon printing. I printed the newest qs one each only on Monday with no problems. Yesterday and today in Chrome and Explorer nothing will print, I just get error and message to check their FAQ for help. I have changed nothing and have no problem in bricks or any other coupon printer.

Did this on primary laptop that updates almost constantly and secondary laptop that almost never takes automatic updates. Same problem on both machines

Thanks I thought that would add that I also tried again printing coupons on Bettycrocker.com and Pillsbury.com on two different computers that each have their own printer. It says sorry your coupons did not print and to check FAQ each time. It must be on their end. I wanted to print the coupons to use this Sunday for a sale! Frown

I am almost relieved (but sad) that this has happened to you guys as well. I have not been able to print for about a month and thought I was banned or something, not that I did anything wrong. I thought maybe I dropped one and someone made a copy or something. I have not been able to print from Pillsbury, boxtops, BC etc and get same message. I can print C.C fine.

The one thing I noticed which is why I thought somehow I was banned, was that I took my Netbook, which had not been turned on for a long time, to my moms, and it printed fine from same sites. Brought it home and got same error message when printing from those sites again.

So while this might be on their end, something else is going on, since some can print, my same equipment can print elsewhere, and for me its been over a month.

Something had changed on the BC, Pillsbury etc sites. I have not been able to print for the last month up until today.


I just tried on 3 of their sites and can now again print without having changed a thing on my PC.

Those of you with issues may want to try again . I am thrilled.

I have an iPad and an HP wireless printer. I tried to print from a direct Bricks/CouponsDot link, but got a message that I need to have the coupon printer installed. Any ideas about how to make this work?

I still keep getting that the couponsinc printer plug in manager has crashed in FF, when I access the General Mills coupon websites. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software with no luck. The coupon pages also freeze in IE and the page shuts down. Does anybody know what to do? I have searched for technical advice without any luck. Thanks!
