You are a little confused. The ethernet cable will not fit into the USB socket. Do you mean that it is connected with a USB cable? Is the printer on, with paper loaded and the tray pushed right home? A bit unusual for an HP to jib. Make sure that all cables are well and truly home.
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.
HP provides details of the problem on its website. The
problem usually occur on PC laptops or when printing across a network.
HP offers several fixes for the problem.
First, check your Windows print queue and ensure the printer
is not set as "Paused" or "Working Offline." This can often clear the
problem and resume your printing.
The problem can also be caused by printer driver issues. Try
uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver. Connecting your
printer directly to your computer using a parallel cable may solve the
problem, but this may not be practical in all cases as many modern
laptop computers do not have a parallel port.
"Power Cycle" Your printer. Shut down the printer, unplug
the power cord from the socket, give it 5 minutes, plug it in again and
turn it back on. Try to print.
If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
Check the printer for any paper jams, check the trays, and
also pull out the toner cartridge and/or remove any paper jam, if you
find one. Put the cartridge back in. Then try to print.
If after completing the steps above, the printer is still
not working, click "Start," then "Settings," click "Printers," and the
printer folder will open. Make sure your HP LaserJet 5 is selected as
the default printer.
Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
Right-click your printer, and click properties. Make sure
the right port is selected for your LaserJet 5 Printer. If you are using
a parallel cable, you are most likely using an LPT port; if USB, then
look for a USB connection in the list. If the port connection is
correct, try to print again.
It's still not printing? Click "Start," then "Control
Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" or "add or remove
programs," uninstall your Laserjet printer software, and restart your
Insert your Laserjet software and driver disk. Proceed to
reinstall your printer software and drivers. Then test the printer
again. If it is still not working, you probably will have to seek
The Dell Latitude D600 has a VGA out. If your TV has a VGA connector then you should be able to connect it to it. All you have to do is connect the cable, and press the hot key to enable VGA output. Usually its Fn+F5 or Fn+F7 for Dell laptops.
Assuming that you are using windows platform, when USB cable removed and inserted, computer must make a sound signaling a USB device is inserted. If no sound or visual experienced, try another USB port and/or change cable.
Otherwise, (also assuming that there are no warning lights on the printer) you may want to rremove printer queue and re-install the driver.
You are using the Windows XP version driver right? You can try to uninstall all the existing drivers of printers on your laptop except for those printing to document ones by using Control Panel->Printers. Then turn off your printer and restart your laptop. Then put in the CD and reinstall the driver. Follow the instruction to connect your printer to your computer with a USB cable and turn on your printer. Move the USB cable to another USB port if still no connection.
If the issue persists, you might like to use the HP troubleshooting utilities to search for it and see what the problem is related. You can download all the drivers and utilities from the following page too. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1140780&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228
There are some troubleshoot links on that page too. You can also try to update the firmware on the printer if the problem persists.
Apparently, with Leopard, you should be able to just plug in your USB cable and it will register. Go to Settings, then Print/Fax and click on the Add button. Make sure that the USB cable is attached securely both at the printer and the computer. I struggled with this for at least two hours, before my husband came home to fix it and it just worked. Very annoying.
