HI

reinstalling the printer might be a good option but make sure you first uninstall the existing drivers
a quicker way to resolve is ,goto device manager and check if there is any exclamation mark beside the printer icon,try updating the drivers and see if that helps
also you can try installing the drivers from the default location,


thanks & regards
amit

Computer will not recognize my hp printer


Hello,

I would make sure you have the correct printer cable for your printer. Many look alike but have different pin configurations. If you know you have the correct cable, Try this:

Unplug the printer from your pc, remove all software/drivers for your printer from the pc. Reinstall the software/drivers for the printer, power off your pc, connect the printer to the pc, power on the pc.

Once booted up, your pc should 'see' the new printer.

Good Luck

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

I had same problem, even if I download de cjb3500_4500en the processo goes on but when I put to configure wifi (orange) they ask me to put a usb cable, but on actives the button do continue if the USB was...


You did a nice job trying out other ways to install the printer successfully. However, it's weird that 3 computers are not recognizing the USB connection. Make sure that the USB cable is plugged in correctly (in the right position) in the USB port of the printer.
Next, use the correct driver that is compatible with your computer's operating system. You may need to uninstall the existing software before reinstalling the new one. Instructions on how to uninstall the Lexmark software available at http://bit.ly/8ZH59T. Then, you can download the drivers at:
If problem continues, contact Lexmark technical support.

Printer USB Cable un recognized DCP150C


You need to isolate the problem. You tried using multiple cables and reinstalled the printer driver several times, but you never mentioned that you tried connecting the printer into another computer. What if the problem is the USB port of the computer and not the printer cable?

Try connecting and installing the problem printer into different computer for testing purpose only. If it work, then the problem is the USB port of the computer. To fix this, try updating the USB driver of your computer.

If same problem occurs using another computer, then you need to contact the manufacturer of your printer. I've heard this problem before and I don't have an update if there's a fix with it.

Have a great day!

My printer will not print. It says can not start printer check configuration. My laptop is a vista. printer is hp3210 photosmart


Check the connections. Does the Vista recognize it? If it does, reinstall the driver. Its a maybe that the driver on the installation disc don´t work as well, get the driver from the HP site specifically for Vista.

Connect HP 3015 all in one printer to Aspire One


Disconnect the printer from your computer. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers. Right-click on the HP 3015 printer and select Delete. Confirm the deletion of the printer. If it asks about removing unused driver files, answer Yes. Reinstall the driver files using the provided setup program. Do NOT use the Add printer... dialogs. If the installation program prompts you to plug in and turn on the printer then do so, but do not do this before it prompts you. This is what generally causes the missing files problem. If it goes completely through the installation without telling you to plug in the printer (which would be unusual for HP printers), plug it in when it completes. It should automatically recognize the printer being plugged in (and turned on, if necessary) and then finalize the driver configuration.

Printer installation?


You will have to reload your printer. Plug the printer to your computer and reboot. The Plu and Play should recognize it. Then the Ad Hardware Wizard will pop up. Load the CD that came with the printer and the Wizard will allow you to load and configure the printer driver. Once the drivers are loaded you can print a test page. If it is a USB printer then load the drivers first, then plug your printer in and reboot.

Printer Drive Problem


Since the printer is working the drivers are installed correctly. The drivers help the computer recognize and operate your printer. The error that you are recieving is from the program called MFL Pro Suite. If you still have the CD you can reinstall the software and this error should go away. If you found solution this helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
