Hp 3005X PAUSES BETWEEN PRINTING EACH PAGE. Data light is flashing and LED panel displays "processing"


Thank you for contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
We have had this problem before. If you install the driver from the hp site, the dot4 port is not installed properly. We had to clean all the dot4 entries out of the registry and install the printer from the cd.
Remove Dot 4 Port Steps:
  1. Click "Start" and then right-click "Computer." Click "Properties" on the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the "Device Manager" link on the left side of the new window.
  3. Double-click the "Ports" sub-heading in "Device Manger." Highlight a USB port that includes "DOT 4" as part of the device description. Right-click on the port devices name, and then click "Uninstall" on the pop-up menu.
  4. Uninstall other existing "DOT4" ports using the same method.
  5. Restart the computer and log in to Windows.
  6. Reinstall the driver software that came with your printer's CD.
The printer now functions properly in Windows.
USB problems are usually fixed by reinstalling the driver, just reboot the machine.
Better still hook the machine up to a LAN this is a network printer.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this printer solution.

Hi,
Try unplugging the usb chord, uninstalling the printer (in device manager), then reinstalling the drivers.
If this fails, you may have a problem with your USB ports on your computer. Try different ports.

Problem with usb port don`t work


Step 1
Before you start working on the USB port, make sure that your device is not the problem. If the computer says that the there is a new USB device but that it cannot use it, typically there is a problem with the device's driver and not the USB port. If this is the case, your best option is to re-install or upgrade the device driver. Try inserting the device to another computer. If the device works, most likely the problem is with the computer and not your device.

Step 2
Try rebooting the machine. Rebooting a computer resets all of the software to the default state and will clean up many issues. The start up process also checks all of the devices on the computer and can sometimes fix a USB port. First shut down the machine. Connect the USB device up to the computer and start it. This reboot will sometimes fix a bad USB port.

Step 3
Try attaching the USB device on to another USB port on the same computer. If the device now works, the old USB port probably has a hardware or BIOS issue. Skip to step 5 to try to fix a bad USB port through the BIOS. Fixing a hardware problem on a USB port requires working on the motherboard which is typically more expensive just adding a new USB ports.

Step 4
Uninstall your computer's USB device bus manager. The device manager controls the USB access and sometimes gets corrupted. Fixing the USB device manager requires administrator rights on the machine. The best way to uninstall the device bus manager is to right click on your computer's icon and select properties. This will bring up the hardware settings for your machine. Click on the hardware tab and select the device manager. The device manager lists all of the devices on the computer. The next step is to open up the "Universal bus controller" option. Right click on all of the items under this option and uninstall them. Once all of the devices have been removed, restart the machine with the USB device connected. Upon reboot, windows re-installs the USB device manager. Most of the time, this will fix the USB port.

Step 5
The next thing to try is to check the BIOS. Restart the machine and enter the BIOS setup screen. You should check to make sure all of the USB ports are active. If they are, you should try resetting the BIOS settings to the defaults. The BIOS reset will sometimes fix USB port. But if it does not you will have to consider upgrading the BIOS. Upgrading a computer BIOS is very dependent on the motherboard manufacturer and you will have to visit your computer manufacturer's web site for detailed instructions.

Step 6
The last trick to try to fix a USB port is to repair your OS. Sometimes the USB drivers can get corrupted and break the USB ports. You can reinstall the system files onto the computer which should fix the USB port. Your data files should not be changed in this process, but it is a good idea to do a full backup of the computer ahead of time. In windows, an OS re-install is done by loading up the windows installation CD/DVD and selecting the repair windows installation. Just follow the steps and you often have a fixed USB port at the end of the process.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

That would be correct. If it is USB attached and not PCI (internet/ethernet card)
I would try updating drivers for the linksys and then reinstall the software and manually set configuration

Hp photosmart C4280 installed once worked great unplugged and moved problems. uninstalled reinstalled maybe 15 times now nothing works installation complete yet device icon says cannot detect device


HP printers can be very touchy about the way they are installed.

1) Disconnected the printer
2) Uninstall the software
3) Restart your computer
4) DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER
5) Install the driver and only connect the printer when the installation tells you to.

The other source of problem is where the printer is connected to the printer, if it is connected to a USB hub (especially an unpowered one) it may cause issues. Try connecting to one of the ports at the rear of your computer.

Check your cable, maybe try another one, it could have become damaged in the move.

My sony VGN N220E does not detect external devices


Try reinstalling your usb ports.

1. goto desktop, right click on my computer and press manage.
2. goto the device manager, find the usb devices / ports.
3. Make sure you are useing a ps2 mouse / keyboard since if your mouse/keyboard is connected to usb they will stop working untill your pc is restarted and the devices are reinstalled.
4. Uninstall all usb devices.
5. after all usb devices are uninstalled reboot the pc.

If the problem is with your drivers ( your pc detects the mp3 player but no drivers found) Download the newest drivers for your product and operateing system from the vendors website.
