The most frequent problem with a printer is a problem with the USB cable. Try a new USB cable (note the printer didn't ship with one. It is a standard A/B male/male cable available at any store with computer accessories). Next try plugging into a different port. Check if a known working device can be seen by the computer. Check if the USB ports are disabled for security or power savings (in the Device Manager for Windows for the first, Advanced power savings from the page to set the Screen Saver for the second).

Additional documents and drivers are here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=1128296

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming no error messages on the printer and that the power is good.)

Wirelessly connect to hp deskjet f380 printer


This model printer only has USB printer connection and it cannot be connected to a wireless network directly.
If you have a wireless router then you can connect a print server to this HP printer and then connect the print server to the wireless router. This will allow you to print wirelessly yo the HP printer when you configure the printer server and configure the printer driver in the computers to connect to the printer port IP address of the print server.

Hi lesstravelro...
No, the printer does not connect to the ethernet port.

Before you hook your printer to your laptop besure to run any softwear that came with the printer.
I would also recommend that you go to the Manufacturer's website for updated drivers for your printer.
Your printer will have a printer port or usb port on the side/back of the printer to plug the printer cable into the printer.
You will plug the other end of the printer cable into a usb port on your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Can I connect my canon mp240 printer by wireless


The Canon Pixma MP240 canot be connected to a router wirelessly. You could buy a USB printer hub which would allow you to connect your printer to a wireless router. Basically, the printer would connect to the hub over USB, the hub would connect to your router over the netowrk cable, and this would allow you to connect to the printer wirelessly.

Printer says "printer is currently


The printer is connected to the rest of your computer with connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware such as connecting cords or connecting pins are damaged or not secure, then printer would be offline. Users facing the printer offline issue are recommended to check the connecting hardware and if the connecting hardware is found damaged, they would have to be repaired to solve the issues.

I keep getting ''Printer connection failed'' message


Hi,

It is seen that if there are any issues with the printer drivers, issues like connection failure may occur. There are chances of drivers being outdated and corrupt. In such situations, you have to update the drivers. If there is any yellow exclamation mark next to printer driver, You need to replace that corrupted driver with the correct one. Before the installation, you also need to check for compatibility. Sometimes, incompatibility would cause issues like printer connection failed, etc.

Get more information and help to fix Printer Connection Failed . Hope this information helps you.

Printer 6540


First of all u need to assemble the printer and need to ensure that the printer has a steady green light on Power..
If any light blinks it means there is some problem with the printer..
To connect the printer with your Laptop u need an USB cable which has a rectangular connector at one end wich will be connected to the Laptop's USB Slot and the other end of that cable will have almost square connector wich will be connected to the printer...
Before connecting the printer U need to install the Software on the Laptop and connect the printer when system prompts..
remember the printer should be powered on while connecting to the system..
