Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

Another question for sandrew

Thanks for the info, but I have another question. I get it that I need a usb hub to have both printers available to use rather than unplugging one to use the other. Thanks for the website. I found a couple different ones in a department store here for about $30 each. I'll probably pick one up on the weekend. I'm just wondering though, if when I uninstalled both drivers for both printers and only installed the laser printer, why it wouldn't print from the usb port on the back of my tower. Wouldn't the fact that I uninstalled both and only installed the laser printer "erase" what the computer thought I was using before and revert back to the original hook up of just the laser printer?

Re: another question for sandrew

Yes and No, unless you manually change a pc settings, it may search for items in pre-programmed ports, depending on what windows versions you are running, sometimes a pc will not pick up new hardware attached either, so it wont recognise it and it will revert then, but you can fix this by reinstalling the one you want again and it may pick it up then, pc's are temperamental!!! Go to printers in your control panel and see what printers are actually hooked up and where and if they are in ready mode.

How do I convert a printer to wifi operation ?

The best option for this is to attach the printer via USB to a Network Printer Hub.
Printer Hubs attach to the network through wireless and convert the printer to be available through that network to any PC.
Some routers also act as a Printer Hub, if you are happy to have your printer located beside the router.
Look in Google for Printer Hubs for more details and local availability.

I cant install printer usb port is damage

Which USB port Damage because there are two USB port available.
One is Printer USB port or Sec is PC USB port.
If you are say PC USB port not working first you check it USB driver installed or not, or USB connect to motherboard or not. PC there are two side USB available one is front side and sec is back side. You connect only back side, because this USB connect to main board. So you connect only back side. If not working removed driver or installed driver.
Or if you are say printer USB then change cable or port or not solved only change option.

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error

If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

What kind of usb cable do i need for my x5650 printer. i just bought it and it didnt come with the usb cable. so what kind do i need and where can i purchase it from

The connector type on one end is the standard USB Type A while the other end is the USB Type B. It's probably available at electronic shops around your area. But, if you like, you can contact Lexmark Technical Support and request for that. They can send you one for free. You just need to provide them some info about your printer like the serial number and your personal info for documentation purposes. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Error message appears "power surge at usb hub port" when I plugin

disconnect your usb hub and connect it directly to your computer and that will eliminate the usb hub if that is causing the problem,
I have worked on these machines a lot and very rarely do you have any usb problems, if it still is giving the same error message after by passing the usb hub, you will need to replace the main PCB on the printer itself

Hi There,

I think this may be something Win 2K is doing.
However, rather than power cycling the printer, simply removing the USB connection then replacing it should be enough to 'wake it up' (and save on dye film).

Check the power saving settings for your USB Root Hub;(Hardware/Device Manager/USB Controllers/ USB Root Hub/Properties/Power Management). Make sure the 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' option is NOT ticked.

Check also under 'Settings' / 'Printers', right-click on 'Magicard Printer Series', you should NOT see either 'Resume Printing' (printer is paused), or, 'Use Printer Online' (printer is offline).

Also, make sure you have the latest drivers installed. The Rio 2 / Tango 2 driver V6.01 is compatible with the 'older' Rio / Tango printer (even the non 'NP' models). You can download this here;
Make sure though that you select 'update driver files' and NOT 'add a printer' when prompted (restart is required). Port name should be 'NUSB01' when you see the list of available ports.

I hope this helps.

Printer doesn't seem to like my 7 port USB hub

Hi Bob,

A lot of the time devices plugged into a USB hub don't receive enough power to run correctly. One possible solution is to get a dual-input usb cable and try using that. These cables connect to a usb device and then have two jacks for plugging into ports, which may supply enough power. You should be able to find them online fairly cheaply, so if you can spare 2 spots in the usb hub that may be your best bet.

Usb hub

The answer is yes your PC will not look for any previous drivers to work the printer, but the USB ports on the motherboard don't work on the printer driver, they work from a usb controller, which is where the problems can stem from them not liking hardware change. Its not a software driver issue but a connection issue, i have it regular. Did the pc say that it found new hardware, then continued to install drivers and then informed you that your hardware is installed and ready to use.(pop up on task bar) If you put your printer into another usb port the PC would need to find the drivers again, it does not know that your printer has already been set up in another port. But you must install both printer drivers ready for when you plug them both in(one at a time.) I'm sorry, but i'm sure it's as clear as mud.
