Try unplugging your usb cable to the printer, uninstalling the printer software, reinstalling the printer software, and plugging the usb cable back in when instructed during the installation.

Have E Machine ET1161-05 trying to install Kodak ESP6150 computer does not find printer


While installing the printer just switch off the printer and try to install the printer driver completely, When the software will ask you to connect the printer then only switch on the printer. If this way still you are getting the same problem then connect the printer in other usb port or use different USB cable

My printer won't print due to the fact that the troubleshoot says I'm not connected to a computer....but I am. How do I download a new driver to make it work. thanx


Hello Sir, Hi, that is common error with printers today, but this error can be fixed, here are some of the thing you need to do, they may help.
for usb interface. 1. If you are using a USB interface, you need to install first the driver software, along the setup, you will be prompted to power on the printer and plug in the USB cable to your computer and the printer. make your connection here. If the connection fails, do this several times. 2. If the 1. fails try using another USB port.
for centronics parallel printer cable. 1. Make the connection of the printer to the computer before installing the driver software. 2. Power on the printer. 3. Power on the computer and install the driver CD.
If you do not have the driver cd and you did not mention what printer you have. do a Google search, type the printer make and model and search for the driver. download the driver, usually from the manufacturer's website.

HOW DO I RESTART MY ACER LAPTOP


  • 1

    Connect the host computer (the computer that will be connected via wire to the printer) to the printer using the provided USB cable. Insert the printer software CD into the disc drive and click the "Install" button when it appears on-screen. Click "Continue" at the bottom of the next window.

  • 2

    Click "Yes" when asked whether the host computer will be sharing the printer. Give both the host computer and the printer a network name that will be used to connect to the other computers when prompted to do so. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions until the installation process is complete.

  • 3

    Go to a different computer on the network and insert the printer software CD into the disc drive. Click the "Install" button when it appears on screen. Select the "Network" option on the screen marked "Connect Your Printer."

  • 4

    Enter in network names of both the host computer and the printer into the dialog boxes in the next window. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions that will prompt you to begin the installation process. The installation process should take less than five minutes to complete. Click "Finish" once the software downloaded from the CD is complete. The printer will now be available to both computers on the network. Repeat these steps to enable another computer to work through the same network.

    Emprex cd burner/model # USB 5232Ul/install cd


    Most times, you can plug the drive into a USB port and Windows will detect the device and assign a drive letter to it. If it does, the CD burning software should then be able to see it. Try googling the burner company name and model number if Windows continues seeing the drive as an unknown device.

    I have a Lexmark 5400 seies printer and just purchased a HP Windows Visa PC. I am having problems connecting the printer. It keeps telling me that the USB is not connected. I have checked this out and it...


    A couple of questions: Are you using an accout that has install rights? (ie. Administrator level account ) Are you seeing the UAC (user account control) prompts if you are are you clicking allow this software to run? Can you install other software? If these are true then

    at this point try removing all printer software, then restart computer. Now turn on printer connect usb cable to printer then plug into a usb port on the computer, Do you get a "Found New Hardware" popup window? If so remove the cable from the computer and restart the computer. Now insert the cd that came with printer and follow the instructions for the software installation. If you don't see a "Found New Hardware"prompt then try a new usb cable, or try leaving the printer connected and turning the printer off for about a minute then back on. If this doesn't help try leaving it connected and re booting your machine also try different usb ports on your machine. If none of this helps you may have account permission issues or just bad hardware.
    I would really need more info about your machine configuration if these tips don't help

    Having trouble installing HP Photosmart All in One Printer. Model C5280. Near the end of installation it ask's for printer to be connected via USB cable. Msg comes up on screen 'USB Device not recognized'...


    Dear Sir:

    It seems that the printer has gone bad because when you get this message 'USB Device not recognized' it means that the usb device connected to the computer is defective however I would suggest you to connect this device to another computer and if you are getting the same error with the other computer.

    Please contact hp support they should be able to help you with this.

    Please feel free to get back to me If you need any further assistance.

    HAVING PRINTER PROBLEM. I BELIEVE IT HAS TO DO WITH THE USB PLUG GOING INTO THE PRINTER AND THE COMPUTER. I HAVE TRIED PLUGING IN DIFFERENT WAYS BUT IT STILL WON'T CONNECT. I QUITE SURE I'M DOING SOMETHING...


    First option - If you are using Windows OS plug the USB plug to the USB panel of your PC and the other end of the printer cable to your printer. Your PC detects your printer. Install the drivers needed for your printer to work. Insert the installation disk that comes with the printer to your CDRom drive. Install when asks to. After installation, restart your PC.
    After restarting to check if your printer is connected click >start< go to >control panel< double-click> System<click>Hardware<click>Device Manager and see if your printer is there.
    Second option - if still your printer is not detected by your PC try unplugging from the USB slot and insert it to another USB slot and follow the first option
    Third option - if the first and second option does not work, use a different printer cable. The cable that comes with the printer might be defective.
