My XP Media Center PC does not recognise the scanner

When plugging in the USB cable the scanner green LED flashes briefly but the PC just does not flinch - it does not recognise the thing at all. Also tried plugging it in via the serial connector. It came with a Serial cable and serial to usb converter. I also tried connecting it with my blackberry usb cable which has the same connector at the other end. Again nada. Any ideas welcomed. Carl

    Hi, yes it is a thought - USB ports seem to be very temperamental - some days they work with some devices - other days I have to swap them around. Anyhow, I tried your suggestion and another USB port recognised something when I plugged the scanner in - in Windows explorer 4 devices showed up at once - all one kind of disk drive or other - clicking on each in turn however all ended in the message "insert disk into drive XYZ". So, what next? Should I try working on the Serial connection - how does that work? Thanks in advance, Carl

Your USB ports on your computer may be bad. Do other devices work if you plus them into the same USB port? You can try plugging the scanner into another PC with USB ports. If it works in the other PC, then that points to the original PC's USB ports. You can try buying an add-on USB port or using other USB ports on the PC. If it still does not work, then there may be a problem with the USB port on the scanner, and the scanner itself may need to be serviced.

I have a Prosound guitar to USB cable but my PC does not recognize it.Can you help?


Solution #1 has misread the question. The question would be better worded: "I have a 1/4" to USB guitar cable manufactured (or marketed) by ProSound ...". This device should be recognised by Windows as a Plug 'n' Play device. There are no drivers to install. If Windows does not recognise the device, it might be a fault with the cable or Plug 'n' Play. If this a Maplin A54HZ cable, there is an LED at the USB end which lights when connected. My A54HZ was recgnised by XP Pro SP3 straight away and self installed.

Win XP PC does not recognise my SJ 5300C USB scanner


first thing i would do is go to the control panel and see if theres any thing in the camera and scanner profile. Then go to the manufactures site and see if theres an updated driver for the printer. if so download the new driver then see if it recconizes the scanner. if that still does not work then you may have to run it in a different compatability mode. good luck

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)

Locked Metrologic MS9520-37 (keyboard wedge) after unintentional programming


You programmed it for usb interface, but the scanner is keyboard wedge. Try pointing the scanner at the "recall defaults" barcode in the manual as you plug the scanner back in.

Powerbutton flashing yellow


If the main power button LED is flashing or solid yellow, this could indicate a hardware problem.

 

Was it running good before?

 

Are the diagnostic LED lights all green?

 

Here is what dell says:

 

If the power light is blinking amber  —

 The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

  • Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).
  • Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

Do you remember what the BSOD said?

USB port problems


Try going into the BIOS and see if the USB Ports are enabled. I don't know what type of system you have. When you turn on the pc it will prompt 'F1 to enter setup' or it might be F10. Do you have a USB mouse or keyboard? Try those in different ports.
