INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.
Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
This printer can work very well via a standard printer cable directly connected to your computers LPT Terminal. Most of Microsoft's current Operating Systems already have the LaserJet J2300 drivers built in and will automatically install when connected.
To confirm your connection to go to your computers printer setup and ensure the driver is configured to print from LPT1 port and click on print a test page. (Start/Settings/Printers/LJ2300 - Right Click on properties then click on the tab for ports. The general tab should have a button to print test page)
The network card that comes with your printer (Jet Direct Card) will not be used with this method nor will the Ethernet cable be required.

It's a network printer. Are you connected via the network or USB? If you run the CD wizard and select the wrong option it will not print.
In either case, insert the CD, and select the proper method of connection (USB or network), it should see the printer, if it does not you have a problem, so check your cable connection (either rectangle thingy - USB, or Network - big phone jack). From there, make sure (especially in network mode) that the printer is configured properly.
How the printer is connected to PC Via USB or using Network Cable. If it is connected Netwrok cable than printer configuration page and on netwrok configuration there will be IP Address if this is valid IP Address than reinstall drivers and upgrade the Firmware of the printer.
If Printer is connected USB than try different USB Cable and try different USB Port on the computer
If USB port on the computer is working fine and check in Device Manager if the printer has detected as unknown device or not detected at all.
If detected as unknown device than reinstall printer driver if not detected at all than USB Port on the printer is faulty you need to set up hardware repair of the printer.
You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address. Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
To have an IP address for the printer you must either have a HP4200n or install a Jetdirect card into the printer. The Jetdirect or "N" version of the printer with the built in Jetdirect holds the network IP address. Subnet Mask, Gateway Derfault and handles the networking functions. If you have a 4200n or Jetdirect installed it will print out on the configuration page.
The standard HP 4200 doesn't have the networking capability without adding the card. In the event that you have a card installed and its not recognizing the card on the configutation page it may be bad. The HP 615n cards are known to have burn out issues. If you have to install a card to upgrade your printer, I recommend a HP 620n or better to get around the known bad issues with the 615n cards.
