Yes. Isn't that a wonderful feature of new printers. If you look at the contents slip that should be floating loose in the box, or the box flap shows the contents, it shows that you REQUIRE a USB cable. That is sad that they cannot put them in with a new printer. But they are about $15 at Walmart. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

showmecables.com/Bulk-Cable STEP 1 Purchase the RF modulator at an electronics store. The modulator is used to connect your older television to cable.
STEP 2 Plug the RF modulator in a power outlet near your television. It is best to plug it near the television to allow for easy access.
STEP 3 Connect your television to the RF modulator by inserting the one-prong cord that is on back of your television. Insert the cord in the slot on the modulator that reads, "To TV." On older televisions, this cord is the only cord in the back.
STEP 4 Connect one end of the white one-prong cable to the cable box and the other end in the RF modulator. Connect it into the modulator in the slot the reads, "ANT IN." Usually, the cables are provided by the cable company--the technician uses them upon installation. This particular cable may run along the side of the wall to your cable box.
STEP 5 Turn on the cable box and the television set. Everything should be working properly. On the RF modulator, choose the channel for the television (either channel 3 or 4). The modulator turns on when you plug it in.

Printer not being recognized by computer


Sir/Madam

1. Is the printer turned on?
Make sure the printer is turned on.
Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the electrical outlet.
Test the power by plugging in the power cord of another electrical appliance to an electrical outlet and turn it on. If the power to the other electrical appliance comes on, the printer may be considered to be faulty.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
2. Are your computer and the printer correctly connected?
Make sure the USB cable is securely connected to the printer and to your computer and check that the USB cable is not damaged nor badly crimped.
The printer will not be recognized during the driver installation if connected to a printer switch or the printer buffer. If this is the case, try to directly connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, connect the printer to the first-tier hub from your computer. If the printer driver is still not recognized on your computer, try to directly connect the printer to your computer without the USB hub.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, make sure the USB hub device is recognized by your computer.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
3. Does your computer provide USB or IEEE 1394 support?

I lost my installation cd for my x2470 printer. I do not have money,is there a way to install it witout a cd


    • Step 1 Open your web browser and go to Lexmark's "Drivers and Downloads" page (see Resources section below). Locate the search box labeled "Search by Model" and enter X2470. Press return. Select your operating system from the pop-up menu. Wait for the download page to load, then click the "Download Now" button. Save the installer file to an easily accessible location.
    • Step 2 Rotate the printer so that the rear section is in view. Connect the power cord to the power cord connector located on the right. Plug the remaining end of the power cord into an electrical wall socket. Connect one end of the USB cable into the USB port located on the left. Rotate the printer back into place.

  • Step 3 Turn on your printer. Extend the paper guides and insert paper into the tray. Readjust the paper guides so that they are flush with the paper.
  • Step 4 Lift the scanner unit and wait for the print cartridge holder to move into view. Push down on the light blue lever to raise the cartridge holder lid. Install the ink cartridge into the print cartridge holder. Close the cartridge holder lid and lower the scanner unit.
  • Step 5 Connect the remaining end of the USB cable into any available USB port on your computer. If any "Add New Hardware" screens appear on your computer, click "Cancel."
  • Step 6 Open the previously saved installer file and follow the onscreen instructions.
  • Step 7 Locate the button on your Lexmark X2470 that looks like an open scanner pointing to a computer monitor. Press and hold this button for three seconds. Follow the instructions that appear on your computer. Once this is complete, your printer is ready for use.

Got a new laptop and need to connect the hp laser jet p3005


Hi Terry_preyse !!

Thank you for writing to Fixya.com.

To setup a printer you'll require:
  • A Printer
  • An USB cabel or Wireless Card(if want to setup wireless printer)
  • Driver disc & it'll be shipped with the Printer
  • Last but not least, 15-20 minutes.
Unpack the printer carefully, plug the USB cabel in the printer. Don't connect it to the computer & turn on the Printer & here's what you need to do.

  1. Step 1 Set up your computer on your desk so that you are able to plug in your printer and other accessories in an orderly way. The PC is the center of your home office and all things should be setup in relation to this. Consider how you’ll run cables before selecting a location.
  2. Step 2 Assemble your printer. Few printers are ready to go out of the box. Open it up carefully and pull out the quick setup instructions. This usually entails affixing trays and installing toner and drums.
  3. Step 3 Decide on a method. Wired or wireless? Wireless will save you a lot of hassle but if you are on a tight budget wired does the job as well.
  4. Step 4 Install the drivers. Insert the CD that came with your printer into your computer and install the drivers before connecting your printer.
  5. Step 5 Connect with cables. Using a USB cable or a parallel cable, connect your printer to your computer. USB cables have a trapezoid shaped plug on the end that goes into the printer and a rectangle shaped plug that goes into the computer. Parallel cables will have holes on the computer end and pins on the printer end.


Hope this will help !

I opened the printer box for the first time and the USB connection core is missing. Without it I cannot get to step 11. Will you send me one? I checked box and wrapping very carefully.


Some printers do not come with usb cables (so they can make more money off of us), but they can be purchased very cheaply from WalMart.
