Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

My HP Laserjet 1020 powers on but now it's not recognized by my computer anymore. What happened & how can I get it to reconnect?


The solution to this problem is as simple as disconnecting your printer, going into CONTROL PANEL / PRINTERS AND SCANNERS, right click on the icon for your laser printer, then select "remove." Once you have removed the printer in the Control Panel, plug the printer back into your USB port, power it on, and it should plug & play from there.

My laptop cannot detect the mouse. It states that there is an undetectable device. I have followed all directions and I still can't get the mouse to connect to my laptop


I think this will help.
A USB Connector has 4 terminals.The two terminals at the ends are to supply 5 Volts. The middle two are for data transfer.

If the terminals at the end are OK the device will get power (5V). Then the computer can detect something was attached. But if one of the middle terminals are damaged, your computer cannot recognize the device.
The problem might be with the USB port of the printer. Connect it to a different port. Does it (mouse) work on your desktop machine? Then the problem is not with the mouse.
If the mouse fails on all USB ports, the problem is with the mouse. Check the USB jack of the mouse. Sometimes the damage is visible. Or else one of the 4 wires of the mouse cable is disconnected (damaged) due to bending of the wire. In this case, buy a new mouse or replace the mouse cable.

Hi I have a new brother printer and it was working fine. I have gone to use it again and it keeps saying the printer is offline...yet I have registered again and everything is the same. Help


check that the printer cable is inserted fittingly, on the computer and on the printer, if alright,change the port from which the printer cable is connected,am assuming it is usb. if still not responding, turn off the printer, reboot the computer, and turn it on, if it fails, unplug the printer from the computer and uninstall the driver. reboot the computer and reinstall, while installing, it may prompt you to plug it in. if it does not, do not worry, just plug the printer cable after the installation is through, the computer should recognize a new device and go on to auto install, if it does not, then you have bad usb port port or controller drivers. to be certain, plug any other usb device onto the port(s), if positive, buy a new usb card and install on computer and connect printer

USB not recognized during printing and scanning


Some motherboard or operating systems have problems if you leave usb devices plugged in. They don't recognize that the device is still there and ignore it. These are referred to as "Legacy USB devices". There are a couple of things to try.

Make sure the problem isn't the printer if you can. If you have another computer just plug it in long enough to for the operating system to recognize something has been plugged in.

On this computer giving you the problem. unplug the usb cable and insert into a different USB port. Usually this is enough to "fix" it and make it usable.

Next is to unplug the usb and reboot the computer a few times. Then insert into a different usb port.

Past this point if it still isn't working then you need to go to control panel-system-hardware manager-usb devices and delete all entries under the usb header. Then reboot. This forces the operating system to find all the usb ports and reinstalls the drivers. Then plug in the usb and it should work again.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks

Can't get connected


There are 3 possible things wrong. You will have to try to test them all. 1) The USB port could be bad. Try plugging another USB device into it and see if the computer recognizes it. Try a USB mouse, portable music player, or any other type of USB device. If it does, then the port is good, and move onto #2. If not, then try another port. If all USB ports are bad, then you will need to have that fixed. 2) The USB cable may be bad. Try swapping out the USB cable. Try using a different USB cable. Also try using the original USB cable with another USB device on another computer. 3) The printer may be bad. Contact vendor support, or just return is to where you purchased it. Another place to see if the device is even being recognized is the Deviec Manager in windows. This can be viewed by Right clicking on My Computer and selecting "Manage". In the Computer Management window that opens, select Device Manager. If you see any question marks there, then your computer may "see" the printer, but the drivers are not installed properly. If you do not see any question marks or the printer, then there is a problem with the printer.
