Will not power up...

From my laptop. I tried two different laptops, and the usb doesn't power up the printer (it is plugged in), but when I plug into our desktop USB, it powers right up??

    Yeah, tried that with no luck. It's odd that the usb from the desktop works fine, while the usb from two laptops neither work. What's up?

  • Rahja Feb 22, 2008

    I wonder...
    Does the printer get power from the usb, or does the usb just complete a circuit for the a/c power? When I touch the usb cord to the desktop, it sparks. On the laptops, no spark. Consternation.

    If power comes from the usb, why the a/c power cord?

Connect usb port


Check all computer connections and cords. Is the powerstrip for surge protector light indicator bar (usually inside the off/on switch itself) on?
All it takes is a pet to walk over it or a foot to bump a cord and break the power connection. Mine do it all the time. Check the power on/off button on the printer to see if it accidently got powered down.

Power off printer, remove power plug from printer, remove usb cable from printer, pull out paper and check for jams, check toner cartridge, clean area underneath the toner cartridge head, uninstall printer from windows control panel, reboot computer, plug-in printer with a different working usb cable, plug in power to printer, power on printer, reinstall printer driver. All in those steps exactly. If that doesn't work I would say you have a bad printer on your hands.

How to connect to a laptop


Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.

1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet.
2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on.
3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe
4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen.
5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts.
6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

My hp officejet j3680 doesn't want to scan anything everything else seems ok but i don't have the disk any more and it says to refer to product device documentation top troubleshoot ..i do have it...


Some laptops cannot run some printers/copiers/scanners from the usb ports. If you have always run your officejet from your laptop with everything functioning correctly, there may be a problem with your printer hardware. If you have just tried it with your laptop, it may mean that your laptop cannot power your printer. It might help to plug your laptop into an AC outlet and make sure you have the most current, correct drivers for your printer. You can go to the HP website to download drivers. Will your printer make copies? If not, there may be a problem with the light in your printer which is used for copying and scanning.

You can determine if your problem is with the printer or the laptop by connecting the printer to a desktop by usb or printer port to see if all of its functions work correctly. If they do, you can print from the laptop through a home network.

Having a problem scanning. Worked fine now brings up a message saying the cable is not plugged in but it plugged in correctly


Try a different USB cable between the printer and your computer.

Try connecting the printer to a different computer, e.g., a laptop, to see if the printer is recognized by another computer.

USB wont recognize device...


How many other devices are plugged into the laptop?? The power supply can only drive one or two major devices. Try removing other devices and then see if the printer will work. If it does, get a powered usb hub.
