1) Remove the Kodak printer and all its software. 2) Disconnect the USB cable from the computer. 3) Reinstall the entire software applications for the printer just as if you were installing it for the first time. 4) When asked to connect the printer .. Use a different USB port .. even if you have to switch something out .. but do this step irregardless.
Now what I want to know is .. 1) Can you print from the computer? 2) Black still "gone" ?
You can do this by using a router. If your home lan is wired then you would connect all computers to the ethernet ports on the router. Run the usb cable from the printer to the the computer. Turn on all computers you wish to be in the network as well as the printer & any modem you use to connect to your isp. Connect one computer to the internet. Start running the network wizard on each computer, starting with the one connected to the internet. When you have finished the wizard on all computers you might need to install the printer driver on all the other computers. You should now be able to print from any computer connected to your network. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
Usb cables are universal, the only reason it may not match is if the MAN. sent the printer with it's own cable. That would not seem to be a Canon thing to do if it were a Dell then yes.
Also, try this the USB cable will only fit in one way, try turning it the other way and see if it fits. the silver end part has a line down the middle that part should be in the down position.
The problem is that the printer, being a composite device, takes a lot of energy from the computer USB ports. Some computers, such as some Dell computers, have problems with USB ports due to a cheap manufacturing. What I can suggest you is to simply unplug the printer when you want to use the HDD, because no matter what you do, you'll have the same problem and that's because of the computer that won't supply enough power to the USB ports. Also, if you are using a laptop, remember to keep it plugged to the power so it can provide more energy to the USB ports.
Heres a few things to try. Open the access panel to where the ink is. In the top right hand corner on the printer there should be an L shaped plastic piece. Remove that piece and make sure that the cables are connected properly. You can also try to unplug the printer and plug it back in. If this stuff does not work, you will need a replacement printer.
