My computer won't recognise my USB cable (code 43 error)


Its maybe the printer is not compatible with your computer, will to try several steps to determine a solution,
1 try another USB to see if it recognizes it,
2 download and install the driver from the printer manufacturer
3 try another USB device into the same USB port to see if it recognizes it if it does then the USB on your computer works as it should,
if it does then the fault is either software or the printer compatibility.
4 follow step 2 if the problem persist then the answer is your printer is not compatible and will need to order one that works for your system.

Usb device not recognised lexmark s405, tried all advice listed in google pages except petrol & lighter.


Have you tried using another USB cable? You can also try plugging the printer in to a different USB port in your computer.

Also, try to plug in the printer to a different computer, if it works then there's a problem with the USB port of your computer. If it still doesn't recognize the printer, it could be the USB cable that's causing the problem or the USB port of your printer. If that's the case and your printer is still under warranty, contact our technical support team to have the printer replaced. You can find the contact number at our site: www.lexmark.com.

Hp j3680 was installed but now it cant be recognised on the usb port.


Check your USB ports and cable. If you have the unit plugged into a hub, try directly connecting to the computer. (A bus-powered hub is at higher risk but failures are known with both.) Try swapping to a new port (if you are already directly connected to the computer). Check if a known working device works in the port. Ports can burn out under some situations.

Try a brand new cable as well. In some cases, you might want to try unplugging the power connection as well as the USB cable to clear any issues on the printer.

I hope this helps.

Usb device not recognised


HI,

Is this the first time you connect your printer on that computer? This can be the USB port does not support a 2.0, or your data cable/printer cable is damage.


Hope this helps

Software installed for printer but computer not recognising printer when plugged in via usb


Some USB ports are specifically configured to the printer when it was installed in that USB port. When you try to print, in the Print menu, make sure that Name of the printer is your specified printer. you may have installed other printers before.

Try different USB ports on the computer to see if its a porblem with the port connection and if there's no change there then try using another USB cable that you know is working perfectly fine.
