Media tray Empty with Samsung Ml-1710 ???


I have a clarkconnect home 2.2 gateway pc and want to use the samsung ml-1710 USB as a network printer .

So I instatlled the driver according to the guide on linuxprinting.org.
After connecting the usb printer and installing it with CUPS the printer is listed correctly and "ready to print".

But after sending a testpage the "ready to print" imidiately changes to "media tray empty".
Of course there a plenty white pages to print in it!

Sending a page to print through the console does not show any reaction.



Does anybody have a similar problem?


Does anybody know what i am doing wrong?

I think it is a printer or driver bug

Gentoo 2004.2 box, CPS 1.1.20, and Samsung 1740 same issue. I tried the driver on the cdrom and the Samsung website.
