Install my printer, have a message about USB port MALFUNCTION in my printer BROTHER DCP7020 laser


Hello, Jorge.

It would help to know "exactly" what the error message states, such as "The USB Device Not Recognized" or something like that. Here are a couple of things to try in order to narrow down the problem source:
1. Try a different USB connection on the computer. If that one works, the problem is probably that other connection port.
2. If none of the ports work with the printer, try a different USB-powered device, such as a cell phone and charging cable. If it works, the problem lies with the printer/computer connection (more likely the printer).
3. If none of the USB ports work, the problem might be your USB port itself. Go to "Device Manager" (in Control Panel), then look for "Universal Serial Bus controllers." Check to see if any have a disabled symbol. Check under "Properties" that device status is: "This device is working properly." If not, try updating the drivers (under the "Driver" tab).

I have used the printer (hp deskjet f4180) for over a year now. but recently when I connect it to my pc (hp windows vita), i get an error message that the usb fevice is not recognised. I have tried to...


If I am right, the error message should be "USB Device is not recognized...." not "Fevice" :-). This happens with most usb devices when there's connection problem, i.e. the USB cables or the USB Ports or the USB interfaces.
First of all try the printer with the same cable on another machine to make sure it works, if it doesn't work, then you'll need to replace the USB cable or try with another cable.

You can also try cleaning he USB Ports and the cables usb jack with a brush dampen with alcohol. Also clean the usb ports on the computer with the same materials mentioned.

These will definitely help you find out the culprit and take the necessary actions, like replacing or switching the usb port.
To simply find out if it's the computer or the printer or the cable, try the printer on another computer.
Note: If it's not recognized once it's connected, then the issue is not with the drivers... If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal
