Question about Printers & Copiers
Greetings Wise Ones,
My Dell P1500 USB port is broken. Something hit the plug and snapped the little plastic peg in the center of the port.
How can I fix this by popping out the broken port and replacing it with a new one? Or, does it need to go to a repair shop? (I don't solder! And, I destroyed every model I tried to build as a kid with my spatial perception "challenges" and lack of digital dexterity, so if this is more complex than loosing/tightening screw, I am out of my league.)
To my knowledge, the 6P isn't a USB printer, it's parallel port only. Are you using a USB / parallel port adapter? If so, I believe that's the root of your problems - the adapter.
Try hooking it directly to the parallel port (shut the PC and printer down before doing so).
Upon restart, Windows will detect it, and may or may not "know" the model, so you may have to choose it from the dropdown boxes.
If it works when directly connected, you will need to either locate drivers for the adapter (if any), or manually configure it under the printer port properties.
If you need more help, let me know. These are great little printers - once you get them to work!

There are few things to remember using USB.
To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Not all USB adapters are the same, you need the one that is made for your printer, I would try a different adapter before going too deep, because when you plug it in your computer should see it even without drivers.

You need to replace the separation pad. This printer is made by Lexmark, so parts are available through many vendors. The part number for the pad is 56P0691. You can google the part number to find a vendor closest to you for the best shipping charges. It is relatively easy to replace. Good luck.
