Question about HP LaserJet 2200 Printer
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
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.
