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

Thanks! I'll try this trick. Of course this means I have to know in advance that I want two prints. It would be nice if I could print today and come back tomorrow and print another.

I print everything in 2's. (Well, with 8 computers, I guess that can sometimes be in 16's. Stick Out Tongue)

Can't you just send it to your printer to print later and if you change your mind just cancel the print job? I do that sometimes, too.

I had this problem once and was able to remedy it by first setting a zip code in the browser before attempting the first print. After I set the zip code one time, I was able to get two prints.

On most computers I can get two prints from coupons .com, but on one of my laptops I can only ever get one before I get print limit reached. Anyone know what I can do to fix this? It's driving me crazy and I couldn't find any info when I searched.
Quote from MsGal View Post :
I open 2 windows for C.C, RP, SS ... all of them. I have the coupons checked off to print in both windows. (Or 2 Bricks/SS windows if it's a direct link). Then I hit "print" on the first one, wait until it finishes, then hit "print" on the second. That seems to work.

Like you, for 2 of my laptops I was having that same problem--it would never let me have another print when using the same window. The above seemed to take care of it though.

UGH! I completely give up on smartsource coupons. Tried the tricks and still get the 'java not installed/enabled' message. I used to be able to print them from my pc and mac. Now they're a no-go from work (laptop pc) and home (laptop mac and laptop pc). Checked their facebook page and sounds like it's a somewhat widespread problem. I wanted that $2 Neutrogena coupon!

I use almost exclusively Mac and at work and at home I have different OS.
To be honest I think that the problem is not on the Mac side because long time I couldn't print SS Qs from FF. Now all of a sudden, no changes on my side, I can print. At one point I couldn't print any Q from any browser on my work Mac. Now I can. It's just random stuff. I gave up trying to figure it out. I try and if I can I print, if not, oh well, I missed it.

Sorry for not being a help. (and yes, initially I tried all the workarounds, installation of "new" Java and so on)

Is anyone having recent problems with Smartsource freezing and then proceeds to freeze Chrome. I have to restart my computer to get it going again. I checked my firewall and that seems to be unchanged. Any suggestions?

My sister is visiting from Canada, so I borrowed her laptop for printables! However, her computer keeps saying "Sorry, you've already printed the max times..." These are for coupons.com and bricks coupons via the same site. Any idea on whether they are changing their algorithms to x amount per IP address rather than 2 per PC?

As far as I know nothing has changed. I can still print both above from all my PC's at same house.

I have been trying to print the coupon from the Kellogs email for $1/2 and I am having a problem with the redplum coupon printer.

I get the message:
Failed to validate certificate.
The application will not be executed.

Name: Replum Coupn Printer
Plublisher: Valassis Redplum
From: htts://client.redplum.com

I went to the Redplum site, jumped thru all the hoops, uninstalled Java, reinstalled Java, cleared the temporary files from the Java applet, removed the Replum coupon printer, tried again and I get the message above.
It happens in IE and FF both. Mad

Has anyone encountered this before, and how did you resolve this? I checked the certificates on the computer in IE Tools and there is no such certificate for this program.

TIA
Maria

Had a terrible time with Bricks/Coupons.com last week. Everything was great and then poof! "You need to install coupons.com blah blah..." EEK! What?!

Installed, didn't work, uninstalled, installed, STILL no worky. Finally gave up on Opera and installed on IE and it still had to uninstall and play with the plug-ins and finally got it to work on IE and then it grudgingly worked on Opera. Shesh, I just want to print a dang Q. LMAO

ETA: If anyone uses Brother TN450 toner, there's a nice deal on supermediastore.com [supermediastore.com]

Buy 3, get 1 free

I always read posts about how you can get a coupon mailed to you (specifically coupon.com coupons, not sure you can have other's mailed) but the page always directs me the regular help page when you can't print a coupon and from there i can never figure out what i'm supposed to do. Would someone mind explaining this to me?

Not all coupons offer this option, but the key is you have to do this BEFORE you print the coupon. Once you print it, the option goes away.



On another note, I remember seeing a post about someone who recommended using a highlighter on IPs that they traded. I can't find the post, does anybody remember it? I don't remember what they highlighted, was it the UPC? And what color did they recommend? I'm getting ready to trade some IPs and want to be safe they can't be copied.

You might have seen it in the CVS coupon thread. Discussion started from post 5627.

I always swipe a highlighter across the barcode of IPs that I trade/give. That shows up when photocopied as a black bar and makes the coupon unscannable.

I have an HP deskjet F4480 printer hooked up to my wireless network, but my iPod Touch can't find it. Is that because the HP printer has to specificially be a wireless printer? aka You can't have a normal HP printer hooked up to your wireless network?
