Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet 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.
