The cable is called a "usb cable" - most printers don't come with them these days - but you can pick one up at any local electronics store for around 10 bucks - or online...here's a link for one that will work on amazon

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

Kids gave me a printer/scanner Epson model number c171a. Need the cable to it. AN oldie but looks like a pretty nice printer. Can you help??


The cable you need depends on the unit. I am not aware of a C171a model from Epson. I have seen it listed as a version of the RX500. In that case you need a USB cable with A/B male ends.

Otherwise, most printers (from about 1997 on) will use a USB cable. This has two male ends - a square end goes into the printer and a rectangular end that goes to the computer (called A/B). For older printers (there may be multiple ports or just one), you may see a parallel port (the cable has a wide rectangular plug on both sides with 36 pins) or serial port (the cable may have DB9 (9 pin), DB25 (25 pin) or both). Often it is called a RS-232 port. For a parallel port connection, you would need one that is designed for scanners and bi-directional communication (USB to parallel adapters are available to connect this to a new computer but you still need the bi-directional version). Similarly, USB to serial adapters are available.

Generally you can tell what cable you need by looking at the back of the unit where the ports are. (Although some all-in ones have the USB cables in other places - routed through the side of the unit but the plug is near where the ink cartridges go.) Then the size and pin counts for parallel or serial tell you what cable to get. There is usually a symbol indicating the cable type as well near each port. USB cables are usually indicated by a tree like symbol with curved branches.


I hope this helps.

You will need a USB cable to connect the printer to your computer. The USB has Type A on one end and Type B on the other. You can purchase this from any electronic shops around your area or you can also call Lexmark Technical Support to request for one. Lexmark printers that are capable of wireless connection have a Wifi light (usually found on the upper right corner on its front face). But before you're able to connect wireless successfully, you will still need to connect the printer to your computer temporarily with the usb cable for configuration. Hope this helps.

My computer does not detect MFX 1430 printer. I think I need the usb driver for the usb cable.


Yes you will need drivers to run a "Local" set-up which is what a usb connection is called. Install drivers BEFORE connecting usb cable. You can download drivers from Muratecs web site www.muratec.com

Most likely it was a USB cable. You can find them in the stores. Make sure you get the right type that is on the printer. As they come in a few different sizes and shapes. Although most knowledgeable people at the store will probably know what kind you need for a printer. What is the make and model anyway? I'll look it up and tell you the exact one to look for.

Connecting my new PIXMA MX700 to my computer


Please read your owners manual.

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.

Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and "USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't explain it to you through type.

If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:

1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.

2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.

The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

That should be all there is to it.
