Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How do I get the printer to connect with my laptop. I'm pretty sure I have the cable connected correctly. The copier function works fine. It worked fine w/ my old laptop over a year ago, but that was stolen and I have a different model but I'm not having any luck down loading software.

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine

I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

Having a problem scanning. Worked fine now brings up a message saying the cable is not plugged in but it plugged in correctly

Try a different USB cable between the printer and your computer.

Try connecting the printer to a different computer, e.g., a laptop, to see if the printer is recognized by another computer.

I have dell 926 all in 1 printer,a dell inspiron1525 laptop i have uninstall/install the drivers from dell 3 times,print jobs Que but not print via laptop,not even a test page


Did you use the printer before that is connected to your laptop and prints fine or you are setting up the printer but unable to set up?

Before that check that all the cable connection are connected. Remove and connect it again, then when setting up the printer, check if it is reconized by your laptop by adding and setting up the printer once more.

Check also the printer's compatibility with the operating system? and install the correct driver?

Check also the USB cable and make sure you are using a USB cable port?

Please post comment for more help. Regards

HI, my laptop is running windows 7 and i am trying to instal an hp series 5150 printer. I have downloaded the printer drives from their webpage but nothing works. Please help me.

First, make sure that you have downloaded the correct drivers and installed them correctly. Drivers are available for two versions of Win 7, 32 Bit and 64 Bit. Click here and make the selection accordingly (32 Bit or 64 Bit).
Secondly, make sure that the printer and cable are functional and when you connect the printer to your laptop, windows detects it. If windows is able to detect the printer, it should work, otherwise the problem could be with the printer or cable.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!

G85 USB failure

You will have to replace the main board in order to get a new USB connection. Have you tried using the parallel connection. Looks like a regular parallel connection but smaller. It takes a special cable that was originally sold with the printer. We have those cables for $15 if needed. The USB cable may be out but the parallel connection may work fine.
