What will happen if I just continue to ignore the usb/ power overload message on my tv...seeing No idea how to fix it


Samsung TV - USB Device Not Found - Power Overload error message

I'm posting this since there's very little information available that explains how to resolve the following error message that you might receive on your Samsung TV. For many months, I have been receiving an error message pop up on the bottom left corner of my screen. The error message would say "USB Device Not Found. USB1 (or USB2) Power Overload." This message popped up without me ever doing anything with either USB port. In fact, I've never even used the USB ports on my Samsung TV. The message would appear at random and stay on for a few seconds or minutes. It's more annoying than anything.

To resolve this issue, I went to Samsung's website and navigated to their support section for my particular Samsung TV model. From there, you can download the latest firmware update for your TV and copy it to a USB flash drive. Once the firmware update is on your flash drive, you'll need to extract the files since they're zipped. At that point, you'll plug the flash drive into your TV's USB port. Go to your TV's menu and navigate to the section where you can update your firmware. On my specific Samsung, I went to my TV's Menu >> Support >> Software Upgrade >> By USB. This will start the update process and your TV will reboot once complete.

So far, my TV has operated great after the firmware update. I've not received the USB Device Not Found, USB1 or USB2 Power Overload error. Hopefully this will resolve the issue for me permanently. I'll update this post if the error message reappears.

Make sure the paper try is properly attached. Try to unplug the power of your pinter and the USB cable for about 2-3 minutes. Restart your computer. Plug the USB and power to the printer then turn it back on.

Hp 2355 all in one error message


reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.

the only thing that can be done is to go to your printers and faxes folder and looking for your HP printer icon, right click on it and select uninstal, switch off and remove printer from the usb port Next go to add/remove programmes and look for any HP printer software listing and uninstall it and restart the pc. If you have the installation cd that came with the printer reinstall the driver and when prompted reconnect the printer to a usb port preferebly a different one than before if you have spare and continue. reset the HP printer to the default printer if not already been prompted to do so by the software and try again printing, if the result is the same the printer itself is faulty and requires servicing or replacing
