I am going to tell you what i experienced with this type of issue and maybe you can take this and use this information. Two issues

1: cable
2. printer controller module

what is happending is the computer is not detecting the pritner because one of the two events I listed above (VERY COMMON WITH LEXMARK)

If you look at my name below it i wear a lexmark badge. Why>? Because I have helped a ton of people with there Lexmark issues.

check you cable and if that does not work try and diffrent computer or port if all else fails you got a big huge brick for a printer.

Thanks please do be considerate and rate your solution before you leave.

Besides FLASH DRIVES and HARD DRIVES this also covers a lot of other USB related issues in one easy to use page.

Most problems can be traced to overloading of USB ports or the use of USB hubs or the wrong cable.

HI,

Is this the first time you connect your printer on that computer? This can be the USB port does not support a 2.0, or your data cable/printer cable is damage.

When i put the usb in the computer it doesnt connect


I would suggest that first you make sure that your computer is updated with Service Pack 2 or 3, DirectX9 or higher, and Windows Media Player 10 or higher. To do this, I went to Start -- Control Panel -- Windows Update. Then downloaded and installed all updates as required.

Secondly, I downloaded the codec for the portable device. To do this I pluged the MP3 Player into the USB port (still not recognised), went to Start -- Control Panel -- Printers and Other Hardware -- Add Hardware and this prompted the Hardware wizard. Clicked "Next" and selected YP-U3 from the list. Then selected "Install Automatically" and Voila! The codec was downloaded and the portable was recognised.

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.

My Brother copier printer DCP-IIOC, will copy but won't print, in fact the computer won't recognise the printer, the usb cable is fine, what is wrong or can you help me please?


Try this :

First check that is defined as default printer in 'installed printer' in Windows, and that you are not sending documents in printout to another non connected printer present in Windows under 'installed printers'.

Unplug completely computer from power socket and from USB for 10 minutes, to get rid of electrostatic problems on USB. Plug everything back and restart.

Check the USB cable, replace USB cable with a different one to check if it was the cable.

Uninstall printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (delete). Disconnect printer from USB, reinstall printer from printer software CD or downloaded driver. Connect printer to usb only after installing, or when explicitly required by software, this is important
