This is a mono laserjet, not colour. You will find a parallel port behind the right side cover. the rear half of the cover unclips from the back of the printer. you can download a driver from here

I cant install printer usb port is damage


Hi,
Which USB port Damage because there are two USB port available.
One is Printer USB port or Sec is PC USB port.
If you are say PC USB port not working first you check it USB driver installed or not, or USB connect to motherboard or not. PC there are two side USB available one is front side and sec is back side. You connect only back side, because this USB connect to main board. So you connect only back side. If not working removed driver or installed driver.
Or if you are say printer USB then change cable or port or not solved only change option.

Check the USB connection
The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely.
After you make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:

  • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
  • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (3 feet, 3 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
  • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the cause of the problem.
  • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
  • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.

Second your U.S.B. cable maybe faulty so change your U.S.B. cable.(if you will not get the right solution of your problem then try the next step)

and

after this all you try your installation on other machine.

I hope you will get your problem solution.

Printer head wobble


Dear it seems a simple printer driver problem. I suggest you that if you have printer driver cd-rom than uninstall printer driver from add & remove program in control panel and than restart the system and unplug the printer from the usb port. Than insert the printer cd-rom and follow the instruction. And when it ask to connect printer to usb port at that time connect the printer to usb port and power it on. and let it get installed properly as per the instruction ok. This might get resolve your problem. if not kindly revert it to me.

New computer with Windows Vista


I have my HP OfficeJet T45xi working with Vista Ultimate. I used a cable coverter to switch to USB. I must install the printer with the USB cord unattached. Install as T40xi whose driver comes with Vista. Set to USB port 1 or 2. Plug USB into USB port 1 or 2 (only ones of six USB ports that worked for me). When Windows discovers the printer do not let it install the printer and tell it to not try again.

Works for me. Hope it helps you!
