First thing you may want to look at is teh actual cable connecting the two devices and if in case have it replaced if it is not operational anymore. OR you may try to put the printer on another slot on the computer.

next thing you may want to try is to install the printer to another computer and check if it will work that way. if it will work, then re-install the printer on the previous computer and if possible use another port on your computer to plug the printer into.

if you have other questions just lemme know

Turn the printer off, unplug the printer, remove the printer drivers, restart the computer, install the drivers first, then plug the printer to the computer and turn the printer ON.

Also, be sure you have downloaded the LATEST drivers for your printer/OS combination.

Computer tell me that my printer is not hook up


If its a USB printer, uninstall the software and disconnect the printer. Then reinstall software while printer is disconnected. The software will instruct you on when to connect the printer or just wait until the software is finished installing then connect the printer.

My computer cant find my printer its a lexmark 2600


Have you tried the following steps?
1. Power off your computer.
2. Power off the printer and remove the power cord.
3. Check the cable connection between the printer and the computer to make sure it isn't loose.
4. Put the power cord back in the printer and power it up. Do all lights show up as normal? Green? Or are some flashing?
5. Power on your computer.
6. Under the printers folder, right click the installed printer and go to properties. Print a test page.

How is the printer connected? USB or parallel port?

Connecting my new PIXMA MX700 to my computer


Please read your owners manual.

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.

Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and "USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't explain it to you through type.

If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:

1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.

2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.

The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

That should be all there is to it.
