This might sound funny but make sure the printer is turned on when pluging it in.

You can also try a different port also! If you are using USB Cables

Let me know if that doesn't do it

Hello, I have a SATO CL408e, with a parallel connection. I have used a parallel to usb to connect to my laptop and i have istalled all the drivers. I have the port set to LPT2. The problem is the device...


Hello,

In the past I have got that problem several times. The truth, it will always be better to use technology from this century. ;)
The problem with adapters is that they are usually chinese and those drivers are horrible. I usually solve it by buying the most expensive adaptor on the store, which usually includes a Driver CD. The OS could be helping to make it even more difficult. If you have a Windows Vista, you will not have an easy time printing.

Cannot Communicate; install USB; Install cable; installation USB; Installation cable; Cannot continue installation; Unable to press Continue; Unavailable Continue button; Continue button not active; Opaque Continue button; Gray Continue button; Continue button grayed out; USB connection not recognized
Solution
What you will see The Continue button is gray (i.e. Continue), preventing further driver stallation. connect the Installation Cable; using the supplied installation cable, connect to any USB port on this computer. Back Quit Continue There are several possible reasons for an inactive Continue button. Try the following suggestions in the order provided to resolve this issue: Action
1 Make sure the printer is turned on:
2 Confirm a solid connection of the USB installation cable on both printer and computer. HINT: The USB port is identified by this symbol:
3 Keeping Step 2 in mind, disconnect the USB cable from both printer and computer and then reconnect the USB cable at both ends.
HINT: Listen for audio alerts or notification icons or balloons in the Windows notification area. For example, or or .
4 If your computer has multiple USB ports, try connecting the USB installation cable to a different USB port.
NOTE: Passive or self-powered USB hubs may cause a problem.
5 If one is available, try connecting another USB device to the same USB port to see if it is recognized by the operating system.
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.
8 Turn off the printer, and disconnect and reinsert the power supply and power cord. Click here for image.
9 Click Quit to exit the installation. Remove the CD from the CD or DVD drive. Then reinsert the CD and try to perform the installation again.
To save time you can skip or close the hardware setup wizard if you have already completed these tasks. 10 Confirm that Device Manager recognizes the device. To open Windows Device Manager: Click on Start and then Run.In the Run dialog, type devmgmt.msc. Click OK.11 Next, disconnect the USB cable from the printer and reconnect it. 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. Click here for image.Macintosh users: System Profiler is the Device Manager equivalent. Click here for instructions on accessing System Profiler, and look under Hardware > USB for the printer.12 Does Device Manager show a change in appearance?-If Yes, contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance. -If No, there may be a problem with your computer and its USB support. The computer must recognize the USB cable in order for installation to work. 13 Reboot your PC and try these steps again.

I would like to print off of my lap top HP paodion dv7-1451nr Where is the port for the USB cable ? Is there a program/Cd I need for this?


Printers do not have a standard USB port. Instead, they use a port that is a bit more square. The cable you'll need is USB one one side and Printer on the other wide. These are extremely easy to find at an electronics retailer and are commonly known as a printer cable.

Whether or not you'll need a program/CD depends on your computer. After you have the correct cable, you can try connecting the printer to your laptop and seeing if the driver already exists/works correctly. If no luck, you can use the Internet to go to Canon's website and download the correct driver for your printer. That should get things going with no Program/CD needed.

I have just bought an epson stylus sx125 and am having problems installing it. Can you tell me the driver port. I have thge software disc.


The specs says it is a usb device. driver port does not mean much to me. You need to load the drivers using the cd first then connect the printer when instructed by the install program or when the driver software installation is complete. you need a Usb cable.

Usb device not recognised


HI,

Is this the first time you connect your printer on that computer? This can be the USB port does not support a 2.0, or your data cable/printer cable is damage.


Hope this helps

My printer doesnt workproperly


I'm assuming you're getting a communication error. This can be caused by a electronic fault in the printer or corrupted printer drivers or corrupted USB ports. To eleimate the ports and drivers do this. Donwload and run Dr. Web, Malware Bytes and Superantispyware. That'll take care of any nusciences. Now goto Start, Run and type SFC /scannow. Be prepared to insert your operating system disk. This will insure we have good USB ports. Now go to Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes. Make sure your printer is listed as the default. If not use Find printer and be prpared to insert your printer's CD. Once we have good drivers and good USB ports, then the only thing left that can cause a communication error is the cable or the printer. Good Luck
