USB installation problem

Using installation CD, the program does not recognise the USB connection and will not continue installation, although Windows detects the hardware as soon as the USB is connected.

    I have the same problem, but the Lexmark 2550 does not appear on the list of printers installed. When I first plugged the printer in, I accidentally hit the 'automatically detect' button instead of 'cancel' as instructed to do in the installation instructions. Now I get automatic detection, followed quickly by "A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your new hardware might not work properly". I get no opportunity to cancel the detection and still find that the installation routine will not proceed past the "connect your printer" screen.

  3. Re-boot system, before re-boot remove all USB connections.
  4. Start Installation from Setup CD
  5. Don't attach printer to system till Installation finished or Setup says to connect the printer.

3 Keeping Step 2 in mind, disconnect the USB cable from both printer and computer and then reconnect the USB cable at both ends.
HINT: Listen for audio alerts or notification icons or balloons in the Windows notification area. For example, or or .
4 If your computer has multiple USB ports, try connecting the USB installation cable to a different USB port.
NOTE: Passive or self-powered USB hubs may cause a problem.
5 If one is available, try connecting another USB device to the same USB port to see if it is recognized by the operating system.
6 If one is available, try a different USB cable that is under 10 feet.
NOTE: Some port replicators or docking stations for laptops or notebooks may cause a problem.
7 Confirm that you are installing the correct software driver for your printer model. For example, a 7600 Series driver works with the X7650 and X7675 All-In-One.
8 Turn off the printer, and disconnect and reinsert the power supply and power cord. Click here for image.
9 Click Quit to exit the installation. Remove the CD from the CD or DVD drive. Then reinsert the CD and try to perform the installation again.

To open Windows Device Manager: Click on Start and then Run.In the Run dialog, type devmgmt.msc. Click OK.11 Next, disconnect the USB cable from the printer and reconnect it. Watch the Device Manager indow while you do so. The appearance of the items in the screen should change as Device Manager tries to recognize the device.

Click here for instructions on accessing System Profiler, and look under Hardware > USB for the printer.12 Does Device Manager show a change in appearance?-If Yes, contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance. -If No, there may be a problem with your computer and its USB support. The computer must recognize the USB cable in order for installation to work. 13 Reboot your PC and try these steps again.

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.

Fatal Error while install software for HP C8180 printer, Vistax64


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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
