Printer not being recognized by computer


Sir/Madam

1. Is the printer turned on?
Make sure the printer is turned on.
Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the electrical outlet.
Test the power by plugging in the power cord of another electrical appliance to an electrical outlet and turn it on. If the power to the other electrical appliance comes on, the printer may be considered to be faulty.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
2. Are your computer and the printer correctly connected?
Make sure the USB cable is securely connected to the printer and to your computer and check that the USB cable is not damaged nor badly crimped.
The printer will not be recognized during the driver installation if connected to a printer switch or the printer buffer. If this is the case, try to directly connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, connect the printer to the first-tier hub from your computer. If the printer driver is still not recognized on your computer, try to directly connect the printer to your computer without the USB hub.
If you are connecting the printer to your computer via a USB hub, make sure the USB hub device is recognized by your computer.
If this product is recognized:
Close this page to return to the installation window.
If this product is not recognized:
Proceed to the next step.
3. Does your computer provide USB or IEEE 1394 support?

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.

Windows XP SP3 will not recognize the printer is connected.


It could be the cable, but most likly it is a damaged driver. try uninstalling the printer and all the drivers then reboot and resinstall it. You could also run "sfc /scannow" to see if any system files are damaged.

USB device not recognized


Hello,
SOLUTIONS:
  1. Unplug the USB device. It is possible that the connection is not secure and has become loose. This is one of the most common reasons for an error in detecting a USB device.
  2. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If the above two doesnt work, then try the following,

Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management,

1.Click Start, and then click Run
2.Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
3.Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
4.Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
5. Click the Power Management tab.
6. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

PS: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.
