It sounds like something is incompatible. It's possible the router does not recognize the LAN card in the printer. Hope this helps.

Hi gurjit: try this..

Reconnect the LAN cable to the hub to verify
that the cable and network connections are good. If possible, try connecting the
machine to a different port on your hub using a different cable. If the connections
are good, the lower LED of the back panel of the machine will be green.
sends me the result.

How connect a tcp ip printer.

Hi Kumar,
You can modify or change port in the printer driver to connect it through LAN cable. Please notice whether you use static or dynamic ip address. Please follow below step.

In the following step we will modify your existing USB connection. Check it out!

  • Open printer driver list.
  • Right click on the printer drive name (e.g Canon IR2270).
  • Select Properties.
  • Click Ports tab.
  • Click Add Port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port.
  • Click New Port.
  • Click Next on add port wizard menu.
  • Type IP Address (for static ip setting) or Printer Name (DHCP), then click Next (computer will search the printer).
  • When the printer has been found, finish the wizard.
  • Close Add Port menu.
  • Now you have new port represented by IP Address or Printer Name (with checked box active) in port list .
  • Click Apply.
Bingo! Now your printer ready to print via LAN. Sometimes printing right after setting this new port not always succeed. Don't be panic. Restart both of printer and the computer.
Next time you want to connect the printer via USB port so you change port back to USB. Just simply check on the check box next to USB Port in port list and click apply. You may need to restart both printer and computer too :)

Have a nice day!

This is general error of the printer. When you have to change the new mother board you should be initialized it then it can be ready mode. When you try to initialization you need printer printer adjustment program. You can batter find out from google & write down EPSON Stylus R230 Printer Adjustment program or ink reseat program.

How to connect hp pavilion to brother mfc9560cdw without router

This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router.
To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the Brother printer driver normally.
Then configure the Brother printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg.
Printer name eg Brother
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

Hp 3005X PAUSES BETWEEN PRINTING EACH PAGE. Data light is flashing and LED panel displays "processing"

Thank you for contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
We have had this problem before. If you install the driver from the hp site, the dot4 port is not installed properly. We had to clean all the dot4 entries out of the registry and install the printer from the cd.
Remove Dot 4 Port Steps:
  1. Click "Start" and then right-click "Computer." Click "Properties" on the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the "Device Manager" link on the left side of the new window.
  3. Double-click the "Ports" sub-heading in "Device Manger." Highlight a USB port that includes "DOT 4" as part of the device description. Right-click on the port devices name, and then click "Uninstall" on the pop-up menu.
  4. Uninstall other existing "DOT4" ports using the same method.
  5. Restart the computer and log in to Windows.
  6. Reinstall the driver software that came with your printer's CD.
The printer now functions properly in Windows.
USB problems are usually fixed by reinstalling the driver, just reboot the machine.
Better still hook the machine up to a LAN this is a network printer.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this printer solution.

Hp psc all in one-scanning stops abruptly.

I had the same experiences before.

What I always do is I unplug the scanner's usb cable and then switch usb ports till i find which port it will work.

In some cases this solution didn't work, I replace the usb cable with a new one. I always buy usb 2.0 compliant cable.
