The draw provided from USB connection is not enough to power up a multifunction printer, therefore you need both USB and power cord to start up this printer.

See if printer will work in another working computer. If it does the issue is with your computer hardware/software. If it also does not work then the issue is with the printer. And if so, it is not cost effective to repair given the price of printers these days.

The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. Check the port


I'm assuming you are using a USB connection, not a Ethernet connection.

Try a different USB port (preferably in the REAR of the computer, not the front). It's not unusual to have 1 or 2 poorly-performing (low power) ports on a PC; some printers don't like those.

If you have a really old computer, it may have ancient USB type "1" (slow) ports instead of the newer 2.0 or 3.0 USB type. Some printers don't like old USB 1 ports, but it is not supposed to matter.

If all else fails, try another USB cord, or a shorter one. Some printers don't work well with cords longer than 4 feet, and USB cords can go bad.

Or, try the printer on another computer. If the same USB cord works fine there, YOUR computer has the problem (probably a USB port or USB driver issue).

Are you having issues with other USB devices? If so, it may be a Windows driver issue.

Good luck. If no help, post your exact printer model # here, or try contacting Lexmark.com support

Connect usb port


Check all computer connections and cords. Is the powerstrip for surge protector light indicator bar (usually inside the off/on switch itself) on?
All it takes is a pet to walk over it or a foot to bump a cord and break the power connection. Mine do it all the time. Check the power on/off button on the printer to see if it accidently got powered down.

This printer connect to USB port, cord for it is about 1.8m (6') long, on one end it have flat connector, this connector will go to your USB port on the back of your computer (check which way! one side have connector, it should slip easy into the port!), another end is more on the square side (tapered sides on one edge!), this square bit is connecting to your printer, again, align cable correctly to the port!

Please visit this site to have look how USB cable looks:

http://www.accesscomms.com.au/products/w2730.htm


To install this printer correctly:

1. remove printer from the box, remove all packing and tapes (about 100miles of tape all around.... :-)), follow instruction how to set up your printer from attached booklet
2. install software (drivers) on your computer,
3. connect printer to power
4. when called, connect usb cable to printer and computer.
5. finish installation and reboot computer

Hope this will help you setting up the printer, let us know how succesfull you were!

Hp deskjet 3650 printer works very slowly with win 7


tion one: Check the power supply Follow these steps to check the power supply to make sure that it is functioning correctly.
  1. Turn the product so that you can access the rear side.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 1: Unplug the power cord from the back of the product
  3. Remove any devices between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
  4. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
  5. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the power supply. Replace devices between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product connected directly to the wall outlet.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution two: Check the USB connection
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the computer.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the product and the computer, according to the following guidelines: The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the back of the product Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer
  5. After you make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:
    • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
    • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high-quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (6 feet, 6 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
    • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the problem.
    • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
    • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.
  6. After checking the USB connection, print and time a self-test page again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the USB connection. Replace the USB cable or modify the connection to meet the preceding criteria.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution three: Check cartridge compatibility Incompatible cartridges can cause the slow printing problem. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, go to HP SureSupply . To identify your cartridge in a language other than English, click the language link near the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) in the upper right corner of your browser. Examine the cartridges in your HP product, and then follow these steps to check which cartridges are compatible with your product. The number on the cartridge label must match the numbers listed on HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are not compatible with your HP product , replace the cartridges. You can order replacement cartridges directly from HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are compatible with your HP product , continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution four: Perform a reset A reset drains the power from the product and returns it to the same settings after restarting.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 3:
  3. Disconnect the data cable (USB or Ethernet, depending on how your product is set up) from the back of the product. USB cable Ethernet cable
  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Figure 4: Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
  5. Wait about 30 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn on the product.
  7. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.

Need cord to connect printer to comuter for Lexmark Z11 printer


You likely need a USB cable with an 'A' connection on one end and a 'B' connection on the other end. They can be found at stores like Best Buy, Office Max, Staples etc. If the computer you are trying to connect the printer to doesn't have any USB ports, then you will have to add a USB card in one of your computer's expansion slots to allow the printer to work.
