SOURCE: usb printer problem "port in use please wait"

Can you advise which operating system you are using? Assuming 32bit windows: Unplug the printer from the USB and try deleting the printer from the printers folder. Then download the latest driver from the Canon web site. Once you have you have it, in the control panel go to SYSTEM and into HARDWARE tab and then DEVICE MANAGER. Look under UNIVESAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS and check that there are NO yellow symbols. If there are yellow symbols you need to remove the offending item from the list (making a note of it's description) and then reboot your machine. When it comes back up it should advise that new hardware has been found and go through the process of installing the drivers. You can now go the manufacturers web site and download the USB controller driver for your device. If the file is a zip extract it to a folder on your PC. When it asks if it can go online to find a suitable driver, let it do so and you can also specify a location for it look (where you extracted the download above) Once it finds the driver required and has finished installing it, reboot your system and then install the printer driver you just downloaded. Hopefully this will get you back on the go. If you have a windows 64 bit system I'm afraid you are on your own. 64 bit drivers that work are very hard to come by. Let us know if this is any use to you, if not we may more to offer.

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

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

How do i change the language bak to English? And how do i print from my macbook laptop onto the printer


TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:

From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.

Press the right arrow button, and then press OK

Press OK again.

Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.

Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):

If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.

To summerise:

Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.

Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.

Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.

If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.

Hope this helps

I have epson c43sx pinter, i will use to my nootbook (laptop) with usb port but i can't connected it. there is warning on my screen "comunication error". how to use my printer and my laptop with usb?


This will be because of your problem in your USB port. So try connecting using some other Port. Still the same problem persists means, try connecting the laptop and printer with another USB cable. This error means that there is no problem with your laptop or with your printer. This is just the cable or port problem.

Printer is connected but does not print


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the following things first---
· The printer cover is closed and the rear access door or optional duplexer is attached.
· The printer is connected to the power source and turned on.
· The cable connections are secure and the cartridges are correctly installed.
· The paper or other media is correctly loaded in the in tray.
Now check the printer cable connection: If the printer cable is attached to a USB hub, a printing conflict might exist. Use one of the following methods to resolve the conflict:
· Attach the printer USB cable directly to your computer.
· When printing, do not use other USB devices that are attached to the hub.
Now verify if the printer is connected to the correct USB port: If the computer is configured to use both the back and front USB ports on the printer, then you might be printing to the wrong port. The computer has two versions of the printer driver: one for the front USB port and one for the back USB port. If you are connected to the back USB port, but select the printer driver that is associated with the front USB port, the printer will not print. In the application that you are printing from, click File and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens. The Print dialog box displays two versions of the printer driver. Select the version that is associated with the port to which you are printing. The issue will be resolved.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
