USB drawing too much power. I have a Canon MP460 all-in-one printer and a MacBook Pro on Snow Leopard. I just bought a new USB printer cable because my past two were not working in respect to this issue. I...

It may very well be drawing too much power from your laptop. These are fairly intolerant of devices that draw higher current like printers and some hard drives. You may need to get a small USB Self-powered hub. These are USB hub/splitters that have their own power supplies. These usually provide and tolerate higher power draw. To test, if you can connect the same printer to a desktop, you will likely see it works fine.

Hp printer officejet #6500A plus manual how to use printer

Manuals and drivers for the 6500A Plus are available here: . Support for the 6500A is here: .

Most of the printers work the same way. Install the software before you connect the printer to the computer. If you are going to use a wireless connection, you need to install the software then connect a USB cable and then continue the installation before disconnecting the USB cable and going to the wireless connection.

The scan buttons on the unit will only work if the full software is installed and set up (scan from the computer first) and the monitoring program is running.

For more specific information, please indicate the connection type and the OS that you are using.

Can we use Brother 2800 as a printer with PC ? Driver is for 2820 but is there a way do this anyway? Thanks

follow this step: Connecting the facsimile machine to your computer (1) Make sure that your computer is turned off. (2) Make sure that the machine's power cord is unplugged from a wall socket. (If the machine has a power ON/OFF switch, make sure that the switch is turned off.) (3) Connect the parallel interface cable to the parallel port on the back of the machine and secure it with the lock wires. (4) Connect the other end of the interface cable to the printer port of your computer and secure it with the two screws. (5) While pressing the 5 key on the machine's control panel, plug the machine's power cord into a wall socket (or turn on the power ON/OFF switch if the machine has the switch). (6) Check to see that the following pattern displays on the LCD. If it does not display, go back to step (2) above. ← Blank-and-black patterns (7) Turn on your computer.

I have a brothers mfc8220, i am having trouble hooking it up wireless. What am i doing wrong?

The only way you can connect this wireless is if you either connect the USB cable to your router directly with a USB cable or by connecting the printer to a computer and then share it over the network.

Just bought the brother mfc 790cw wireless printer....theres no port to hook it up to my computer obviously and i have no users do i link it up with my computer?

You have to connect to the printer at least once with a USB A to B cable to set up the wireless system.

After that you can connect wirelessly.

I have a canon fax-l350 and I want to use it as printer too. so how can I adjest it with my pc and the required materials and softwares

To set up the L350 as a local printer (I'm assuming that you are not putting it on a network) you will need the Canon FAX-L350 CD-Rom which contains the Fax suite (I have version 3.11). You will also need a parallel printer cable as the fax machine only has a parallel printer port on the rear (the other side to the power cable.

When loading up the CD-Rom (which should have been supplied with your machine - if not you may have to buy one off the web), first make sure you read chapter 2 in the manuals folder on screen then install the driver from the 'program setup.exe' file.

After loading the CD-Rom onto your PC (and before making any physical connections between the PC and the Fax) make sure that the fax is switched off at the mains and also logout and switch off your PC. Next, connect up the cable (Canon recommend a cable that complies with IEEE1284). Centronics supply these cables, but if you do not have a parallel (8 bit ) port on your PC you can get a converter cable (Centronics 36) which will connect the parallel cable to a USB port on the rear of your PC. After checking the connections you can switch your fax back on and also power up your PC. Hope this helps.
