1 Do self test without connecting to computer, if page prints properly print engine is ok.
Note this does not test function of input port at back of printer.
2 Test usb port from computer by connecting to another known working device. (Another printer, or Scanner).
3 No response change USB cable for anorther, if cable tests ok connect to 940c printer. if still prints garbage, input PCB is shot. Buy new printer.
Ps. The fact that your printer is printing garbage means it is getting instructins from your computer, A fualty computer USB port. the connencting cable, and the USB input can corrupt a good signal from the compurter.

Pc won't accept printer via usb connection


So why won't it accept the printer? Is the printer and your operating system on the computer compatible? Did you install the printer and drivers? Are you sure the USB Port works?
Have you tried a different USB Port?

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Printers. Open it and make sure you don't have more than one instance of the printer installed. If you do, then you're confusing the computer. You can also check to see if more than one of the same printer is installed by opening a word document, then click File, then Print, and when the print window opens up click the Down Arrow on the line that shows the printer name. This will show you all other installed printers.

Hi ericcris10se
If you have trouble with the ethernet connection , try USB . If it also fails there , your device is defective or you have a driver issue . Make sure you have installed the correct driver and prefer the download file to the cd version :

Try a new USB cable and plugging into a different port. Make sure the cable is fully seated. If you have a USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

I have a new Compaq laptop running Vista home and an old samsung 4216f. I tried a parallel to usb and cannot get the printer to work. No parallel ports on laptop and no usb on printer. Any ideas?


If you have a home network, try a Print Server with parallel port. You will connect the printer to the print server via parallel, and the print server to a network hub/switch/router (any of the listed) via a network cable, and the computer to the hub/switch/router via network cable or wireless.

Cost should be around $20 - $60 depending on make/model.

Only prints on computer restart!


Have you tried a different port?
This will identify if it is a USB issue, possible USB 1 or 2.
It sounds like an issue with your port and not the printer, do you have access to advanced settings on your computer for USB?
