Unable to get printer to print

Connecting a HP laserjet 1012 to a Dell latitude D600 laptop, connected power and USB cable to laptop, it makes a sound when connecting but am unable to get it to show on the laptop. Have tried add printer wizard but I do not have a installation disc, so the wizard will not work. Will not show up when selecting the print menu.

    Website did not auto detect, I had to manually install printer with Add Printer Wizard, which is confusing as it asks for a disc, the printer driver was'nt on a disc. The printer was now shown as the default printer but still did not print. After some frustration it was discovered the main fault was selecting a USB port when it required a generic port , printing now OK

Dell latitude d630 laptop - os xpp


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.

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


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.

Printer won't print. I had to move the desk and everything was unplugged and now it won't print. It is on, checked as default, on-line, I think it may be the port.


  1. Background
    • 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.
    Software
    • 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.

    Resolution
    • 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.
Instructions
    • 1 "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.
    • 2 If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
    • 3 Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
    • 4 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.
    • 5 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.
    • 6 Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
    • 7 Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
    • 8 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.
    • 9 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 computer.
    • 10 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 professional assistance.

Can I connect my dell latitude d600 laptop to my tv?


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.

We are connecting a Printer Gadget to DELL D600 laptop and it is getting detected. But when we connect a USB memory device to DELL laptop it is displaying "USB Device not recognized" message....


Sounds like the"device" is using all the current on the USB Bus ... buy a USB Hub ($5 on Ebay) to see if it cures the problem. USB current is very limited, but a Hub has it's own power supply.

My HP LaserJet 1012 printer won't print. I've checked spooler and nothing is in there. I've rebooted computer and printer.


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.

Good luck

How do I set up my hp laserjet 3055 scanner on PC


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.

Other than that, you can run a Microsoft tool to make sure your computer is OK for printing devices and all the services are running well. It is on the following page.

Set powermode "allways on" for the lap top. Use an Usb cable no longer then 2 m. Try upgrade firmware for the printer. If still got problem use a powered usb hub between laptop and printer.

Work with Leopard?


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.
