Installation of printer will not work with my laptop

Is there a specific USB cable for each printer model because when I try to plug in my printer to my new laptop and Windows tries to help me install, it seems to want to search for an older model(DX 8400). My printer is the DX 8450. On downloading an application from the epson homepage it says that the easy print module is successfully installed but still no printer found by the computer when printing. HELP ME PLEASE!

No but your problem might be you are depending on windows to supply the driver ?.
It will keep suggesting the Dx8400 if that is the latest one in its data base for that series I suspect you are running Xp and do not have the driver update facility afforded to vista users .. try this and good luck

Cannot Communicate; install USB; Install cable; installation USB; Installation cable; Cannot continue installation; Unable to press Continue; Unavailable Continue button; Continue button not active; Opaque Continue button; Gray Continue button; Continue button grayed out; USB connection not recognized
Solution
What you will see The Continue button is gray (i.e. Continue), preventing further driver stallation. connect the Installation Cable; using the supplied installation cable, connect to any USB port on this computer. Back Quit Continue There are several possible reasons for an inactive Continue button. Try the following suggestions in the order provided to resolve this issue: Action
1 Make sure the printer is turned on:
2 Confirm a solid connection of the USB installation cable on both printer and computer. HINT: The USB port is identified by this symbol:
3 Keeping Step 2 in mind, disconnect the USB cable from both printer and computer and then reconnect the USB cable at both ends.
HINT: Listen for audio alerts or notification icons or balloons in the Windows notification area. For example, or or .
4 If your computer has multiple USB ports, try connecting the USB installation cable to a different USB port.
NOTE: Passive or self-powered USB hubs may cause a problem.
5 If one is available, try connecting another USB device to the same USB port to see if it is recognized by the operating system.
6 If one is available, try a different USB cable that is under 10 feet.
NOTE: Some port replicators or docking stations for laptops or notebooks may cause a problem.
7 Confirm that you are installing the correct software driver for your printer model. For example, a 7600 Series driver works with the X7650 and X7675 All-In-One.
8 Turn off the printer, and disconnect and reinsert the power supply and power cord. Click here for image.
9 Click Quit to exit the installation. Remove the CD from the CD or DVD drive. Then reinsert the CD and try to perform the installation again.
To save time you can skip or close the hardware setup wizard if you have already completed these tasks. 10 Confirm that Device Manager recognizes the device. To open Windows Device Manager: Click on Start and then Run.In the Run dialog, type devmgmt.msc. Click OK.11 Next, disconnect the USB cable from the printer and reconnect it. Watch the Device Manager indow while you do so. The appearance of the items in the screen should change as Device Manager tries to recognize the device. Click here for image.Macintosh users: System Profiler is the Device Manager equivalent. Click here for instructions on accessing System Profiler, and look under Hardware > USB for the printer.12 Does Device Manager show a change in appearance?-If Yes, contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance. -If No, there may be a problem with your computer and its USB support. The computer must recognize the USB cable in order for installation to work. 13 Reboot your PC and try these steps again.

I got error on printer LBP2900 when connect to my laptop (windows 7) It show communication error but usb connection and software installation no problem. Any idea about it?


Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first: 1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer 2) Reboot 3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software: 1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have) 2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer 3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer 4) Reboot 5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running 6) Re-run the printer installation software

My brother mfc 5840cn won't install on my new laptop which has windows 7 my old laptop was xp


Brother has not released a printer driver specifically for Windows 7 and this model. You can however use a basic printer driver if the Windows Update feature of your operating system is set to "automatic:"

To set Windows Update to automatic, perform the following: (if you know it already is set to automatic, you may skip these steps)

1) Click "Windows Icon" (Start button) on taskbar

2) From the "Search Programs and Files" box type "change device installation" and start search

3) Click "Change device installation settings" - the Device Installation Settings window opens

4) If it is not already selected, select "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)"

5) Click "Save changes"

Now you are ready to have Windows search for and install the generic printer driver for your model. Your computer must be connected to the internet in order to complete this installation.

Note: If you have previously connected the USB cable, disconnect it from the computer and printer for now.

1) Power on your printer

2) Now connect the USB cable to the back of the printer, then to a USB port on the back of your computer (not to a USB hub or keyboard port)

3) Windows should now automatically search for and install the latest driver for your printer.

4) The "Your devices are ready to use" message may come up on your screen upon completion. You may have to click "Close [X]" to close this window.

You should now have a basic driver installed for your model of printer.

How do I connect printer to my notebook?


connect the printer to power, put the usb cable in back of it, but Don't put the other end of usb cable to laptop now.
put the printer On

Now put the Printer Installation CD (which came with the printer) in the computer and install the software & driver.
At the point when it says connect the usb cable to computer, then insert the cable to your laptop's usb slot.

After a while software installation will complete and you can use your Printer.

Let me know if any further clarifications(in that case also let me know the Model of printer)

How do i get my printer to print from my pc


depends upon the type of printer u hav,,, if u hav a printer with a USB interconnecting port then u can plug it into ur laptop rightaway by inserting the USB Cable into the laptop's jack. if ur OS is latest then it will automatically detect the printer and its specifications and installation from the CD is not required. else u'll need to install the software for ur printer from the CD provided by the printer company. then give command to print as normal after installation.
