Question about Printers & Copiers

Mini USB disconnected inside HP all-in-one 2210v psc

My HP was made in Malaysia and not very well. The USB was not installed correctly and was loose inside back of printer. I was able to re-insert the core of the USB port back into the housing which was also loose, but what is supposed to connect it to the printer inside, or was it attached to the circuit board adjacent to it? I had to disconnect the printer recently to move it to a different room, and when I reconnected it, the USB was coreless. How do I fix the connection? The unit works stand alone as a copier, but I need it as a printer, copier, scanner for my computer. Just when I needed to print tax returns, it fell apart inside. The USB was always very loose feeling when connected. If you can help, I would be estatic!

Since the cables were disconnected before the unit was moved, and the cables are behind the computer in a corner, it is obvious that the core of the USB was displaced by plugging the usb cable in because the core was loose already. Since the outer metal housing was also loose, it seems the usb was not installed correctly, so it did not withstand the normal stress of plugging and unplugging the cable a few times. The inside corner of the unit adjacent to the electronic panel is not easily accessible or viewable, so it will likely take a technician experienced with that model to accurately reattach the usb to the circuit board. Many models have a screw to secure the usb connector in place, but the HP Photosmart 2210v psc does not, allowing the connector to move when the cable is inserted or removed. So, the soldering was the only fixed part of the connector, and it apparently broke loose. Two of that model were purchased as gifts for relatives, and both had the same problem which occurred after the warranty period. The USB is the only disfunctional part, but it is the one critical part necessary to use it with a computer. Word to the wise when considering a printer with a USB connection, make sure the usb connector on the printer itself is secured with a screw.

You will have to take the printer apart and re-solder the usb connector to the board.
it was jerked out likely by moving the printer while it was attached to the cored or was tripped on.
it may not be an easy job to fix as you have to have several tools
and soldering skills,
you need a electronics nerd to help.

I have windows 7 and wants to install hp psc 1310 but facing code 43


you probably have the wrong driver installed. Most likely you have upgraded to a 64 bit system, and the driver is 32 bit. Find out which system you're running (right click 'computer' and click 'properties').Disconnect the printer and Uninstall the software, then go to hp website and download the proper software and install here:

My computer doesn't recognize that my printer is hooked up every since I unplugged it and moved it.. I don't have the manual and I know that there is a certain order in which things are pluged in.


To avoid errors, install the HP PSC software before you connect the HP PSC to your computer. If an error message appears and you clicked Next or OK, do the following:
1 Press Esc on your keyboard to exit.
2 Turn off your HP PSC.
3 Disconnect the HP PSC from your computer (detach the USB cable).
4 Follow the software installation steps outlined in the Setup Poster that came with your HP PSC.

If you receive a message that you have a previously installed version, you will not be able to finish installing the HP PSC software. You will have to uninstall the previously installed version in order to install the HP PSC software.

If your computer is unable to communicate with your HP PSC
If communication cannot be established between your computer and HP PSC (for example, the HP PSC status icon has the yellow error triangle), try the same tasks outlined under If Microsoft’s New Hardware Found message does not appear on page 57 of the manual.

Here is a link to the manual for your printer...

I can't scan


This document applies to the PSC 2210, PSC 2210v, and PSC 2210x. When you see the scanner failure message, turn off the PSC 2210. Wait a few seconds and then turn on the PSC 2210. If you see the message again, please contact HP Support. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/contacthp?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00055511&dlc=en&product=79499&rule=45570&lang=en
