    Hi,I would suggest you to first trying unplugging/ switching off your device for 5 minutes. This restores and refreshes the device. Go for it
    Let me know if this works, if it doesn’t then I’ll provide some other alternative solution.
    Thanks

    Cannot install Dell 1700 printer on Dell laptop. Laptop will not recognize the printer through the USB port.


    1. check if any other usb port is working or not.
    2. check if you can print through the printer or not.
    3. try to reinstall the drivers from support.dell.com, select your printer model and then download the drivers for your printer.
    4. if again its giving the communication failure, then the integrated circut which suport the communication from printer to computer is dead.
    5. contact a local technican who can fix this
    6. more economical, get another printer AIO.
    7. also, check if any other USb device is getting recognised or not
    8. if yes, then the problem is the printer IC.
    9. if no. then we need to install the drivers for the computer chipset.
    10. go to the computer manufacturer's website select your computer and thengo to drivers and download the drivers for your computer chipset.
    11. if that doesnot fix you need to reinstall the operating system.
    12. post another question selecting your computer model if this happens

    Can't install old printer on newer computer


    The appropriate printer drivers are bundled with XP. With the printer connected to the computer and powered on, the system should automatically recognize the printer and install the correct drivers if it is connected via USB. If it is connected to the parallel port, go to Control Panel -> Printers, select Add New Printer and follow the on-screen prompts.

    Canon MF 4350d Wont install


    Almost the exact same problem. New 4350d Canon printer trying to connect it with Dell 8300 with XP. The computer says it does not recognize. Tried everything - reinstall drivers, download drivers, tried every USB port, swapped cables, spoke with Canon support and finally took the printer back and got a new one (Canon support person decided the USB board must be bad). New machine - same old problem.

    1700 printer


    How did you install the printer?
    I have found that if you just let your computer recognise new hardware, it really has a hard time with the USB printing to the 1700's.

    Originally there was a disk that came with the 1700 printer. You do want to use that.
    During the install, you run the software, and then turn on the printer. (You can have the printer on during the install, but ignore the Windows Wizards that come up).
    If you don't have the original 1700 install disk, you can download it from Dell.

    The problem is with USB port configuration. These little 1700's are just a pain sometimes if not installed the way they were originally designed.
