Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have just unpacked a HP photosmart C4205, which I'm unable to connect,because there is no USB cable in the box. Having looked at the connection area, it seems to be a specialised connection cable. It's only when you unpack and read the instruction manual to set up, that you find out and I quote' May be included' that it isn't actually included. Therefore should it have been included. The reality is, this product from a purchasers point of view is useless without it and to sell a product without the full connection kit is very misleading to the purchaser. Please confirm if this cable should have been included, if not where can I obtain one and what the estimated costs would be. If this turns out to not be cost effective, I'll return your product for a refund.

Very few machines come with USB cables these days and seems to be retailer specific (for example you could get a Lexmark with a cable at Walmart but the same model without one at BestBuy). Many people already have cables and if the manufacturers included it in all printer boxes it would just raise the prices for people who don't need them. Usually the boxes are very clear on the "Don't Forget" accessories.

We have purchased model HP C4580 from Staples in Grimsby as a manager special but having just unpacked this find no USB cable nor instructions on how to use this model either. Please can you tell me where...


You never get a usb cable with the printer. You need to buy one.
As for the manual, here is a link to HP, where you can download it: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=bg&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=bg

Unable to download 17 images from camera to computer


Make sure the USB port you are connected to are working.

If so, I would uninstall and reinstall the software.

The latter worked with ours.
