Re: printer connection

You have to open the scanner as you would do to change the ink carts. the usb connector is opposite to the ink cartridges INSIDE the printer. The cable has to be let thru the channel which can be quite well be good seen.

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??

1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

How connect a tcp ip printer.

Hi Kumar,
You can modify or change port in the printer driver to connect it through LAN cable. Please notice whether you use static or dynamic ip address. Please follow below step.

In the following step we will modify your existing USB connection. Check it out!

  • Open printer driver list.
  • Right click on the printer drive name (e.g Canon IR2270).
  • Select Properties.
  • Click Ports tab.
  • Click Add Port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port.
  • Click New Port.
  • Click Next on add port wizard menu.
  • Type IP Address (for static ip setting) or Printer Name (DHCP), then click Next (computer will search the printer).
  • When the printer has been found, finish the wizard.
  • Close Add Port menu.
  • Now you have new port represented by IP Address or Printer Name (with checked box active) in port list .
  • Click Apply.
Bingo! Now your printer ready to print via LAN. Sometimes printing right after setting this new port not always succeed. Don't be panic. Restart both of printer and the computer.
Next time you want to connect the printer via USB port so you change port back to USB. Just simply check on the check box next to USB Port in port list and click apply. You may need to restart both printer and computer too :)

Have a nice day!

How do i connect my epsonR300inkjet printer wirelessly

Network printing with a non-networked printer
This model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

Connection to laptop

Most printers are connected to laptops via the USB ports. If the printer is supposed to be wireless, then you may have to connect the laptop via the USB port so you can activate the wireless port.

Cable connection from printer to laptop does not fit

And the laptop connector has 3 rows of pins while the printer connector has 2 rows, right?

You're trying to connect your printer to a monitor port.

As far as I can see your laptop doesn't have a LPT port. You will have to connect your printer to the USB port. If your printer doesn't have USB connection, you cannot connect it to your laptop.

first you have to connect with the power
