NOTE: Passive or self-powered USB hubs may cause a problem.

6 If one is available, try a different USB cable that is under 10 feet.
NOTE: Some port replicators or docking stations for laptops or notebooks may cause a problem.
7 Confirm that you are installing the correct software driver for your printer model. For example, a 7600 Series driver works with the X7650 and X7675 All-In-One.

Watch the Device Manager indow while you do so. The appearance of the items in the screen should change as Device Manager tries to recognize the device.

How to connect my canon pixma ip2772 printer to my laptop?


Don't connect your USB cable just yet. First, install the driver from your setup CD or download and install the drivers for your operating system from: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/photo_inkjet_printers/pixma_ip2702

Then when the driver setup prompts you, connect the USB cable. Setup should take care of the rest.

I have installing the panasonic dp 8016 p but they cant installed why i plug very well printer to the pc they cant


ok. somewhat i know what is goin on. it seems that you are using the cd as the source of your driver and you are doing it manually installation (add printer detection) right?

here are your options:
1. do not connect yet the usb cable yet. Launch the cd autoplay then choose usb printer installation. do not connect the usb cable until the installers ask you to connect it. then those 'found new hardware' will appear. just ignore it, dont press any keys or mouse click just wait because it will automatically close by the panasonic installer. wait until the wizard finish. that's it.

you can dowload the printer driver and do the 'add printer detection process.: panasonic.net/pcc/support/mfp/dp-8020/gdi/download.html
click english except usa
click the link for your OS.
extract the downloaded file. that's it
:)


...if this still doesn't work just inform me. then i'll be the one to intall your printer. :)

  • Troubleshooting Setup and Install If your device is not recognized:
    • Verify that your cable is USB 2.0 high-speed compliant.
    • Ensure that your cable is connected correctly. Remove the USB cable, look at the end of the cable, and then match it to the pattern on the USB port. Make sure that it is not upside down. Insert one end of the USB cable completely into the USB port on the HP device and the other end into the back of the computer.
    • Check that the peripheral is turned on. Peripherals will not be recognized if the power is off.
    • Ensure that your USB cable is no more than 15 feet or 5 meters in length.
    • Check that the USB port is enabled. Some computers ship with disabled USB ports.
