My Samsung ST-335T has a printer port for connecting to a PC with a USB printer cable. When I plug it in, the PC recognises that there is a new printer but shows this as a SF-331P. However, nothing happens when I print to this, despite having download the SF-331P software. Is there any way, (maybe by setting DIP switches), that I can get this machine to behave like an external printer.

Some times the front usb port arnot work. try to connect the /replace the usb cable to the usb port mounted on motherboard(back side panel of pc), It also may happen the usb port may disabled due to virus. Also you can unistall the driver during power OFF of the printer after uninstall successful power ON the printer, it will show NEW HARDWARE FOUND at the right right bottom of the pc screen ,If you OS is win 7 and connected to internet the driver automatically installed, otherwise you can load the driver cd and install the driver.
Also it can be checked at control panel-add hardware.
No. The USB port on your cable modem is intended to be used only for connecting a pc to the network. Sorry for the bad news.
For network printing you can use a dedicated print server like Edimax ps-1206u, a great device that make even old printers to get on the network via USB and Ethernet ports it haves
I think you are new with the PC or Printers, if not, I am sorry to underestimate you, not actually, Well, I was just trying make you concentrate, This printer is to be connected to the PC via USB port using USB cable, here's the pic representation :
The Flat terminal is to be connected to the PC and the Smaller terminal is to be connected to the Printer. Don't worry, It fits with the corresponding ports.
USB port on the printer looks similar with the above shown image.
You have to connect in a similar way as shown above to the PC.. Good luck...
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the following things first--- ·The printer cover is closed and the rear access door or optional duplexer is attached. ·The printer is connected to the power source and turned on. ·The cable connections are secure and the cartridges are correctly installed. ·The paper or other media is correctly loaded in the in tray. Now check the printer cable connection: If the printer cable is attached to a USB hub, a printing conflict might exist. Use one of the following methods to resolve the conflict: ·Attach the printer USB cable directly to your computer. ·When printing, do not use other USB devices that are attached to the hub. Now verify if the printer is connected to the correct USB port: If the computer is configured to use both the back and front USB ports on the printer, then you might be printing to the wrong port. The computer has two versions of the printer driver: one for the front USB port and one for the back USB port. If you are connected to the back USB port, but select the printer driver that is associated with the front USB port, the printer will not print. In the application that you are printing from, click File and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens. The Print dialog box displays two versions of the printer driver. Select the version that is associated with the port to which you are printing. The issue will be resolved. Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
when you install the driver, don't connect printer yet to pc. wait for a prompt for you plug in the USB cable so that it will create its own usb vitual printer port, so you mean when you go to printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to properties then ports, which port has a check mark? it should be usb001 or something then usb virtual printer port.
Windows XP/VISTA (do not install the CD) 1)Plug the cable into the USB port on your computer. 2)A prompt that says "Found New Hardware" will appear. Windows will then install the USB printing support driver automatically. You do not need to install the driver from the CD. 3)Plug the cable into the printer. 4)If your printer is already installed, click on Start, then Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer you are connecting to and click on Properties. Click on the Ports tab and check the ‘Virtual printer port for USB’ port. Click OK. 5)You should now be able to print.
With XP, the biggest clue is to FIRST plug the cable into the usb slot, THEN the other end of the cable into the printer.
