Question about HP LaserJet 2200 Printer

1 Answer

Printer doesn't seem to like my 7 port USB hub

My HP2200 laser printer has been fine through a small 4 port USB 1.0 hub, but it began acting up when I installed a new, 7 port USB 2.0 hub. It often refuses to print; the active light may, or may not, blink, but the main issue is the printer status at the PC (XP Pro) tells me the job won't print. Resetting won't help, sometimes doing a variety of things (turning printer off, killing job from queue, resetting printer, un- and re-plugging cable in hub, terminating/restarting DTP application, making animal sacrifices to the printer gods, etc.) will let me print some more... until the next time.

I assumed that the cheap 7 port hub was the problem and invested in a quality D-Link DUB-H7 (name brand)... same thing. So I plugged it directly in the PC, and all is well, except that I've no place to accommodate a couple other USB devices I use on occasion.

I appreciate any suggestions/solutions. thanks, Bob

Hi Bob,

A lot of the time devices plugged into a USB hub don't receive enough power to run correctly. One possible solution is to get a dual-input usb cable and try using that. These cables connect to a usb device and then have two jacks for plugging into ports, which may supply enough power. You should be able to find them online fairly cheaply, so if you can spare 2 spots in the usb hub that may be your best bet.

Usb port not working


Printers are particular about which usb port they are plugged into, a virtual printer port is assigned to USB1 in the computer, when you select the printer port for it to use. You may need to plug the printer into each USB port, until you fine the USB port 1 which it works in, remember to always connect it to this same usb port, otherwise it will not work. There is only one USB port number 1.

Check if interface at the back of printer is interchangeable to the type of port your computer will support it. Direct USB to USB or direct connection is recommended to avoid future issues.

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

INTERNAL ERROR INCLUDING CORRUPTED DATA POSITION: h6fw_5.35/xl_mage line:154 VERSION: spl 5.35 06-03-2009


I had this problem of the printer reportings "Corrupted Data" on a Samsung CLP-300 and a Samsung MPL-1910 printer and found a software setting that resolves the issue. I only found this issue on Windows 8.1 but I'm not sure it's Windows OS related. I just hadn't had this problem on Windows 7, Vista or XP. My printers are all on my home network connected to print servers so use TCP/IP ports on the laptop.

Go to the Printer Properties menu and select the "Ports" tab (3rd from the left near the top of the menu box.
Select "Configure Ports..." within this tab
If you have "RAW" selected then select LPR.
I added a Queue Name to match the Print server but I'm not sure if this is required
Then click OK and then you'll be returned to the Printer Properties Menu box.
Select the "General" tab on the extreme left of the tabs and click on "Print Test Page"
If you get a "WIndows Printer Test Page" out then this has resolved your problem.

I notice that it still reports on the Test Page that the format is RAW but now it works fine.

I found the problem with my non-networked Samsung ML-1610 laser printer.

I had it plugged into a 4 way (unpowered) v2.0 hub.

When I plugged it directly into a USB port on the computer the printing error disappeared

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.

Printer doesn't work


The answer is probably down to the usb port, they don't always like change, because you are trying to swap hardware in same port, they tend to want to stay with one or the other peice of hardware. If you have'nt got another spare USB port, which i assume you have'nt, invest in a 2 or 4 port USB hub(But make sure it's powered by a AC power lead and not just a usb powered hub, because some hardware will not be recognised e.g I Pods), this connects into your usb port and gives you 2 or 4 port more to use, and you won't need drivers for it. They are inexpensive and you simply plug it in. I think this will solve it for you
