Connecting my computer directly to konica 8020

I don't have the right connection cords to connect the konica 8020 to my computer. Is there a way to directly connect to the printer, instead of using a router. my computer has an either net connection and a usb connection. My computer knowledge is very limited.

You can hook the copier directly to your computer using a USB cable.  You can purchase one at any computer store.

    You might have a parallel cable connection on there as well or either depending on how old the printer is.  You can get those at computer stores as well.

Hello friends How can I set up my computer win7 to the Konica minulta printer by network cable cat5 please answer very detail.Many thanks.

First, you CAN'T connect a CAT5 cable directly from your PC to the Printer. That won't work. Both have to be connected with their own CAT5 cables through a hub or router on your network. The router gives them separate IP (network) addresses so they can talk to each other.

You may need to set up the printer through a direct USB connection to your computer. Once the networking options are set, IF it's an Ethernet-capable printer you may be able to connect that way.

Printer offline

You did not specify if printer was formerly working, the model # of the printer, or what version of Windows you are using. All this information is needed for successful troubleshooting. However, the below is general resolution for your problem:

"Offline" means your computer cannot "see" the printer as connected and powered on.

In order of things to try:

1. Turn printer OFF. Unplug USB cord from printer (or other end from computer). Wait at least 30 seconds. Plug USB cord back in. Turn printer back on. Does it still show as "offline" under Start --> Devices & Printers?

2. Try replacing the USB cord (yes, they can and do go bad).

3. Turn printer off. Unplug USB cord.
Under Windows Start --> Printers and Devices:
RIGHT click the Konica printer icon. Select "uninstall" (or "remove device") and follow through until printer is successfully UNinstalled. If there is other Konica software installed, remove it also (via Start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs -or- Programs & Features).

4. Reboot your computer. Follow manufacturer printer installation procedure, step-by-step (consult mfr website if you do not have a printed installation manual). Do not plug in USB cord or turn on printer until instructed to do so.

If all else fails:

Ignore any manufacturer installation instructions.
Do # 3 only above.
Reboot computer.
Plug in printer and connect it to computer.
Let Windows try to automatically install it (in most cases, Windows can install the "basic" print drivers, which are smaller and sometimes more stable than the fancy drivers and excess software the manufacturer wants you to install).

If still no go, you probably have a dying or dead printer. Consult manufacturer website for help.

How do i connect phone to laptop connection

So do you have internet service at the house? If so you can plug the ethernet cable from the modem directly into the computer's ethernet port.

If you're talking about directly connecting to your cell phone, then the phone has to have the built in router in it. If it does, you can connect your computer to it wirelessly.

If you're talking about a regular old house phone (land line) then you would be very slow if you could get it connected. I don't think the newer models of computers even have a modem port to connect a telephone line into it. But basically you would still need a internet service provider to connect it.

Bear in mind that there is a difference between the phone cord and the ethernet cord. The phone cord is smaller in size and the end that plugs in is smaller.

I need to connect my old speakers to my new Samsung monitor. No instructions in manual. thanks, barb

You don't connect speakers to the monitor, you connect it to the tower of the computer. If I'm not understanding your question right then please be more specific. If your monitor has speakers, you connect the audio cord to the tower then to the monitor or vise versa.

I am using XP SP3. installed a game and it did put the wrong video driver file (Direct X) on my computer. Now window screen goes blank (no signal) after initial start up. I don't know how to fix...

Does your monitor have more than one cord?If yes one should be white,which you connect to your gpu.The other should be blue.The blue one is vga,and will connect directly to the mb.Turn off the pc and disconnect the white cord and connect the blue.This should get you a picture.Now down load the newest Direct X and install then power down and switch the cords back.
