Question about Dell 725 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have had this printer for about 2 years or so. It used to work. Now it gets frozen on the USB printer port page when I try to print. So I went to the dell printer driver page and downloaded the printer driver again. Now I am unable to install the printer or the printer driver. I have windows xp. Both screens are frozen. One says USB driver dell printer 725 and the other says printer 725 installation. In any case, both are broken. Do I need a new printer. It was working fine last week.

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop


Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

Usb port on printer working


I've gotten a lot of good years from my Brother mfc, don't give up on it too soon. Be patient, try another usb cord, and definately try another usb port on the computer. Many a time I have had to re-boot, or uninstall and reinstall a device to get it working. It's worth the effort.

Al-1540 only scans, wont print says-data could not be sent to pri


it seems that the computer was trying to send the data to the printer through the wrong port. i went to the control panel in windows xp, and selected printers and scanners. and added a new printer (manually) as al-1540 cs on usb port 2. it alerted me that the software was not signed, i proceeded anyways. it asked if i wanted to keep the original printer , i said yes. and the test page printed away. so i would suggest people with similar problem to keep adding multiple copies of the printer again and again on usb ports 1,2,3... etc till it prints the test page. use the copy no. indicated in the printed test page to do all your print jobs in the future.

Canon MX700 network problems


Once you have it installed and working on the USB port go to the properties page of the printer.
1) Select the "Ports" tab.
2) Select "Add Port".
3) Select "Canon BJNP Port".
4) Select "New Port".
5) Fill in the IP Address of your printer and select "Next".

Make sure that the Port is checked back in the properties page and select "Apply" and your done. Do a test print and your printer should work on your network. You may still need to fix the settings on your firewall or router to allow access if it does not print.

Printer will not print


Some thoughts.
When you plug it into the computer that it will not print to, Does it tell you there is a new USB device found?
2. I am sure you have tried different USB ports on the computer.
3. Right click your printer to access the properties on the driver and select Ports and see if that somehow was changed.
4. Just delete the printer from the "printers" page in control panel.
Then click add printer and search for it.
5. Make sure the computer does not have a firewall that is blocking the printer.
6. Make sure there is no job error in the print queue.
7. Be sure the printer is selected as the "Default" printer. If there is another printer loaded on the computer, is the wrong one selected?
8 Make sure Print Pause is not selected.
I do suspect once you open the properties on the driver page you will find the problem. Unless of course your USB port or ports on the computer have failed.

Printer doesn't work


The answer is probably down to the usb port, they don't always like change, because you are trying to swap hardware in same port, they tend to want to stay with one or the other peice of hardware. If you have'nt got another spare USB port, which i assume you have'nt, invest in a 2 or 4 port USB hub(But make sure it's powered by a AC power lead and not just a usb powered hub, because some hardware will not be recognised e.g I Pods), this connects into your usb port and gives you 2 or 4 port more to use, and you won't need drivers for it. They are inexpensive and you simply plug it in. I think this will solve it for you
