WHERE WOULD THE UDS CORD BE LOCATED? I JUST BROUGHT A CANON PRINTER PIMAiP1800 AND I NEED HELP HOOKING IT UP TO MY emachines computer can you help????


Most printers do not come with a USB cable.
They cost about $25-$30 at an electronics retailer.

The part the connects to your computer will be squared on one end and rounded on the other. The rectagular flat end will connect to port usually on back of computer.

Here is a picture of what the ends look like.

Make sure you run the software that came with printer before connecting the cable. Software will tell you when to connect cable.

Hope this helps!

Connect x2580 Lexmark printer to toshiba laptop


Hello chuck01438 ,


  1. Remove the printer out of the box and connect the power cable to a power adapter.
  2. Install the drivers and necessary software. Enclosed with the printer package should be a driver CD-ROM for the printer. It might also contain some print enhancement software supplied by the manufacturer of the printer. Follow the instructions for software installation.
  3. Connect the square end of the USB cable to the printer and the rectangular end to your laptop.
  4. Turn the printer ON. Your laptop should find the newly attached hardware, and recognize it as printer.
  5. Open any document or picture and click on Print in File menu or click on a printer icon in the toolbar.

My all-in-one 4200 printer setup to my pc?????


Epson, Samsung, Lexmark all have a 4200 all-in-one printer... so I'll give you instructions that are general.

Your printer came with a CD which included drivers and installation material. With your computer on, insert your CD and install the drivers. This is done BEFORE you connect the printer to the computer. Once the drivers and associated software is installed, you might have to restart your computer. You will be instructed if this is the case.

Once all the software is installed, you will be prompted to connect your printer to the computer (ie: attach the USB cable to the printer). Then apply power to the printer and the computer will recognize it as an additional piece of hardware and should configure itself. You may be asked some basic questions, just answer the questions and you should be good to go.

Printer driver not working


Hi there, i dont know if this is of any relevence however, i have just spent the whole afternoon trying to install my new printer, every time i installed my disk a little icon popped up saying usb didnt recognise the device, despite endless frustration i did it another way, If your printer is a usb connection then before inserting the disk connect the printer to the computer and switch on, this then brings up the wizzard which should help you install, if this doesnt work...trust me it took me ages, try different usb ports, i finally found one that picked up the printer, after it detected the device i was then able to continue with instalation via the disk and wohoo many hours later i have a printer, unfortunatley i have now run out of paper doh!!! i hope this helps someone :-)

OFFLINE problem - unable to print


Hi,
if your printers saying Offline, it means that your printer is not connected/switched on or detected by the computer.
Try a hard reset or re-installation of the printer itself.
power on/off ( On the printer )while this error message appears.
Check the cable from Printer To Computer.

I bought a lexmark z645 it dos`nt have the cable wire that hooks the printer to the computer


You need to buy a standard usb cable to connect your printer. Once you got it connect the square shaped end to the printer and the rectangular one to the computer.

cheers

If you did you will have to select the ip1800 as the default printer if not is going to look for any other printer you had connected to the macbook.

First off you need to connect the printer to your computer. Make sure the fax is plugged into the phone line. Then install the correct drivers for your printer.

If you have vista follow this: link click here

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
