Laptop doesn't register USB cord of printer

My roommated plugged my printer into her laptop to print something, and I didn't realize the cord was right there and tripped over it, yanking the cord out of the printer. Something may have broken off of the printer, but I looked at the piece and it was just a little black piece of plastic that looked like it had nothing to do with the plug. Now when we plug the USB cord into our laptops, it doesn't register. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it!

You may well have damaged the cable internally. Change it for a new one . Not expensive.

My lexmark s605 doesn't work, but the pinter and copier are all fine


Plug in usb cable from printer directly to computer then print something. If you're successful, try to print something. If you're on wireless connection, disconnect the usb cord and try to scan.

I got it hook up to my laptop and i wanted to print out 1 or 2 pictures. And it wont print.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

Some laptops cannot run some printers or scanners. Make sure your laptop can handle running the printer from a usb port. It might help to have your laptop plugged into AC power. Also, make sure you have the most current printer drivers for your particular OS installed. If your laptop can't run your printer from its usb port, you can probably connect the printer to a desktop usb or a printer port, then print from your laptop through a home network.

Go into the control panel and open printers and hardware. Look to see if your printer has a black checkmark next to it signifying that it is the default printer. If not, right click on it and select "make this my default printer".

Canon mx310 won't print wirelessly from laptop. all of network is working except this. pls help. Linksys is the router, Dell running Vista is the laptop, Canon is the printer.


The MX310 is not a wireless printer. I own it and have never seen that feature anywhere in the specs either. Try the MX860 (my roommate owns it and it's VERY nice).

My HP Officejet 6200 All-in-one won't print a word document.


When you plug the usb cord from the printer to the laptop, the laptop should have something to say about it. Usually, 'detected new hardware', new hardware installed and ready to use'. The second message usually takes a little while to show up. Maybe a wizard will pop up, you have to do whatever it wants. If you don't have the install disk it wants, it will have to go online to get the drivers.

HP Photosmart Printer, Mac won't recognize with USB


Sounds like their is not communications between your printer and computer. Could be a bad USB cable - swap out and see if that fixes it. If not it could be a faulty USB port on the computer or printer. You can check the computer USB port by connecting another device, but there is no way to check the HP's USB port. I would also check printer USB port for dust bunnies! If you're not able to resolve, I think it is time for another printer.

I realized that I plugged the USB cord into the wrong place near the printer. In the back of the printer there is a port for the plug. Therefore, I didn't need to install driver software because it did it for me when I plugged it in correctly. Now I can print and the problem is solved.
