USB light only comes on when the server is transferring data or talking to the printer. It is not supposed to be on all the time.

Usb light link


HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Hi, The power cord is connected. The green light inicates that the printer is on. Pressing the button at the green light and the printer will print a page. However when we try to send print jobs from out...


If the printer is printing a test page (by pressing the button on the printer) it means printer is fine. There are only two things that could be having any issues. 1. The printer drivers and 2. the USB Cable. So, I suggest that uninstall the printer and reinstall the printer drivers (It should print the Test Page after driver installation). I have come accross such issues with USB printer and replacing the USB cable has always fixed the problem.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

Printer connected but not printing


Hello,
If your printer has a network port you should be using the network adapter.
Otherwise you want to make sure you connect the printer with a USB cable to the appropriate port on the D-Link.
Once the USB cable is connected you should be able to add the printer from your computer as a shared printer.
You will not normally see any activity lights on your router for the USB connection because it does not send or receive information the same way the LAN cables will.
I do recommend a LAN cable though as it works much better with routers. If your printer does not have one I would look into getting a network printer.
Thanks,
Pat

Light is blinking, doesnt print, it prints before but now it doesnt. appears online and ready on the computer.


If the port had been changed to LPT1 the printer will not work.

LPT1 is the large parallel port, while you are using USB on this printer.

the red light came on probably because of a jam , or because of one of the documents in the printer cue.

The easiest thing to do is

Unplug printer usb.
Go to control panel>installed printer.
Delete all the instances of this printer from there and chose to delete drivers if asked.
Reistall the printer using the printer disk, plug in printer data cable only when asked by setup wizard.

If you have a different USB cable, also use it, just in case.

If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault in the printer.

Regards.

Resume light coming on but printer won't work


Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon Pixma iP2000: yellow power light blinks-reset doesn't work


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Edimax 6215 - Printserver doesn't work


if your usb light is not lit-there's a chance that your usb led is busted, usb cable is defective or printserver is defective itself.
if your going to connect your printer directly to your pc using the same usb cable and if it works that way. then it could be that your printserver is not working fine.

Chances are you reconnected the printer to a different USB port and your default is still set up for the other port...

Look at your printer settings and chances are it set up the printer again for the new port.

Either change your default printer or move the cable back to the original port.
