Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP 5150 loses connectivity every couple of days.I get a message that says the printer has lost its connection. All cables are good. I have the identical printer at another location and when it is used with my laptop everything works great. It is the second unit that seem to have this problem. In my print dialoge box I have 2 printers listed: deskjet 5100, and deskjet 5100-1 (this is the problem printer) Using Mac Powerbook G4 with 10.4.8. A reboot solves the problem but what a pain. hghh

I do not know which driver you are using since three different Ones are listed  8,9, and OS-X. I f you are not using OS X  or at least 9, I would consider trying them , if I were you,since you are currently using 10. The driver page states that if you OS in not listed. then they do not recoment this printer,in so many words.

Printer was stuck in "offline" mode, so deleted it


Hi,

This is not Printer or PC USB port issue.

You need to drain the power from PC.

Follow these steps to resolve the issue

1. Disconnect the printer power cord from walljack or surge protector
2. Disconnect the USB cable of printer from PC or vice versa
3. Power off your PC, Disconnect the power cord from wall jack
4. Wait for 5-10 mins
5. Connect the PC power cord and power on the PC and wait till you are able to login to your PC
6. Connect the Printer power cord
7. Connect the USB cable to PC or vice versa you disconnected.

This should resolve the issue.

I keep getting message that there is no connection to computer but the cable is plugged in etc


Hi

There are several reasons this is happening. Check the cable on both ends. Make sure there is no sign of damage either in the cable or the computer/printer connector. I see at least one a day where the printer cable is plugged into a damaged USB port. Printer fire wire ports do break off their mother board too. The other possibility is that you're temporarily losing your USB ports on the computer. At Start, goto run and type SFC /scannow. This program will try to reinstall all the original protected files. Have you original operating system disks handy because if SFC finds files missing then it will ask for these disks. Good Luck

Try to unplug and re-plug all connectors.
