Question about HP PSC 2210xi All-In-One InkJet Printer

All in One psc2210xi printer

I have a psc2210xi. Lightening hit my computer so I had to have it rebuilt. Now as I try to attach the printer to it it reads the disk so far and then won't continue adding the printer. Do you think I might need a new USB cord. It used to work.

Hello, the electrical spike may have also affected your pnter's USB port or worse. Does it copy/scan/fax ok? Try using the one of the USB ports from the back of your computer. USB printers do not like low speed, low power USB ports. Are you using a USB hub or plugging it into a usb port on your keyboard? I doubt the cable is bad, but check it carefully for any black marks on both ends. Have you tried other USB devices on this newly rebuilt computer? Good Luck!

    Printer won't connect to network

    HI, I had a 3052 for awhile and did have problems with connecting. I even had Verizon Premium Tech try to help me fix it. I finally realized that even though my printer was turned off at the time I had a bad storm, lightening hit trees close to my house and somehow had taken out my printer. Bought a new 4501, used everything else and its all been working fine since. ( SURGE PROTECTION ADDED). Good Luck!

    Hp desktop won't boot

    Firstly how on earth did it get hit with lightening? i have several computers in my house none of which have been hit with lightening during a storm.

    secondly it sounds like some of the components are damaged i would try the different components in different machines to rule them out if certain components are damaged you will have to replace them.

    Phone line goes to fax

    Lightening is definitely a factor. When you say it defaults to fax, do you mean that the fax machine picks up as soon as the phone rings? Most likely the fax software/machine has taken a hit. One way to check is to try it on another phone line, preferably at another location. So the cordless phones work all right? The static is probably something the phone company will have to fix. They have lightening arresters that will develop those conditions. Again, try a known good phone on the line. Preferably disconnect all the phones at the junction box where the phone line comes in and plug a known good phone into the jack. If you still get static, then the phone company should get involved. Otherwise you could have a problem with the house wiring.

    TV hit by Lightening, A wii was also in same receptacle, ruined it, also

    TV's have motherboards just like computers. Most likely a small capciter was burned out. You can get a new motherboard for $300-$500 from the manufactuer.

    Error Message Error 0x886a6b72

    I contacted and after a while we decided it is fried.
    Lightening had hit my cable box and must have got the printer too.
    All it will do is flash even after trying to reset to factory settings.
    Thanks for the offer
