USB plug-ins (ports) are flat/small/rectangular openings and have half (if you look directly into the end of the plug-in) of the opening filled with a little flat (usually white) connector and the other half open to recieve the of themselves from the cord that plugs in.

The easiest way would be to follow the cable from the back of the printer to the computer and be sure the cable is inserted. A usb connection will only go into a usb connection. Another way to check is to locate your my computer icon ( on PC ) right-click it and select properties. Then select the hardware tab and click on "device manager". Scroll down to the bottom of the page, click on universal serial bus controllers, and see if one of the lines says "usb printing support". If so, then the printer is hooked up properly. If you still need more help, please let me know, so I can make sure your issue is solved.

Printer not talking to desk top.


Please check usb cable first, make sure that it is ok. Then check usb port,move the usb cable to other port. Then check if usb cable and port are ok, try to connect other printer or device by using that usb cable and port. If works well means the usb port on printer got a problem. But if still not work the problem could be on usb cable or usb port on computer.
If you are sure that both the printer and computer are ok, try to reinstall the printer driver. Good luck!.

I am installing a new printer on a IMAC, but it won't install completely. The printer is a HP Photosmart C4200 All-in-one series.It will copy, print, but will not scan.


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

USB Not Connected


first..check through the HP icon here, to see if that printer has a IMAC driver

that might get you there...I'm sure that the USB ports on your IMAC are working..

you can check them with some other device, of course.
