If you work on a Mac and use OSX, then you may be one of the many readers I have been hearing from who are unable to print their TARGET Coupons. I have heard numerous complaints that they print with missing expiration dates and the copy is all jumbled. My sister, Kelley, works on a Mac and she’s had the same problem and I know like others out there, she’s been very frustrated!
Well, you may be in luck as one of my reader’s hubbies, Mike, has sent in what looks to be a promising solution and Kelley has already successfully fixed hers! The problem seems to be that Java 7 is not supported by Target Coupon printing. To fix this, you will need to install and enable Java 6 and disable Java 7.
PLEASE NOTE- Whether you choose to proceed with this fix is entirely up to you. I cannot guarantee it will work for all of you, and I don’t know if disabling Java 7 will affect any other programs you use, etc. That being said, proceed at your own discretion and I just want to say thanks so much to Mike!
Here are the steps you will need to follow…
You will need to be an administrator to authorize most of these steps. First, Install Java 6 by downloading and running this installer: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572. Remember, you will need to quit any web browsers and Java applications before installing this update.
Next, disable Java 7 and enable Java 6 by going to this link and following the steps provided: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/mac_uninstall_java.xml . This link also provides more support if you need it.
Once you’ve completed the steps, you should be able to print your coupons again! Good luck and let us know how it goes in the comments.
