Well, your problem is that you purchased a Melody 440. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER. The only thing worse than the quality of the printer is the quality of their support. I'm not a person that typically complains, but this is far beyond anything I've ever experienced.

My HP Deskjet F380 has the latest printing software installed; it spools and is attached to my laptop in the correct USB port; but it doesn't print. The message is "no connection." It printed...


Verify that the USB connection is fully inserted in the back of the printer itself. If all is well there, try to think if you've run any updates on your laptop recently, or installed any new software that could be conflicting. If yes, try removing the new software or recent updates, and try a test print. If this still does not work, try disconnecting the printer, powering down your machine, starting it back up and then reconnecting the printer to the USB port. Sometimes you have have a glitch in the USB port that causes your computer to stop recognizing a device seemingly out of nowhere. If none of the above seems to help, it might be as simple as a USB cable that's become faulty. Hope this helps!

How and where do I connect the canon mp830 multifunctional printer to my hp 790n computer


I will assume you have a CD for your printer. Note that there are 4 USB ports on your computer...2 in front and 2 in the back. You will need a standard USB cable no longer than 10 ft. (3M) One end is more square (printer end) and one is rectangular (computer end).

First you need to power up your printer and make sure the printhead and ink is installed and alignment has been done. Then turn the printer OFF. Run the installation software from the CD. At one point you will get a Printer Connection window. Connect the USB cable to both the computer and the printer. You can use either the front or rear USB ports on your computer, whichever is easier to access. Turn the printer ON. The software should recognize the printer and complete the installation.

Here are some important support links for your hardware.

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

The major problem occurs ?????? You keep on trying installing but it will not succeed????????.

The solution change your usb cable and buy one good quality cable specified as USB 2.0 standard I hope your problem will be solved

Remember one thing never install the software while your printer is connect and live - disconnect it and install from the cd because hp installation is programmed accordingly that you have to install the driver first and it will ask to make it live and it automatically detect and register the port in your system.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks

Memorex MMP 8585 MP3 player


hi bigmax,
this could be many things.
The reason i suspect is from port speeds.
Most HP computers have different speeds for their ports.
Try putting the USB into a different USB port
This should work.
Also make sure you install any CD's that came with the player.
