Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Notebook Light

My Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Notebook Light stopped working on my hp pavillion dv6000 (running vista). there appears to be no power going through it and i've verified that it's not the port. i really liked this hub and am disappointed it's stopped working.

Hello,

I'm sorry to tell you your hub cannot be fixed. I have one just like it and have taken these things apart and repaired simple factory errors as loose wires and the such.

You should get yourself another Targus brand USB hub. They are good and quite reliable

Regards,
Worldvet.

Targus 4-Port not working


First off hubs don't support a lot of power hungry devices so you should be able to buy an optional power adapter for the hub on targus' site.
Second if your computer doesn't have any usb 3 ports then the hub will only operate at usb 2 speeds.

Your probably overloading the hub. Buy the power adapter.

Will not power my usb devices. seems as if there's not enough power getting to the hub


Small travel hubs use power from the Notebook's USB port, the issue you are experiencing is "most likely" caused by there not being sufficient power output to allow all devices to run successfully - the following devices should be connected directly to the notebook:

* External hard drives
* Printers

If the issue occurs with Mouse, USB Key / Dongle Drives, Keyboard then the issue is either a faulty peripheral ( the mouse/ Key etc) of with the Dongle itself.

Can this be used with my home computer to rum my fax machine and web cam


This is a straight forward USB hub, allowing you to expand a sing USB port to four
USB ports. anything you normally connect to a USB port on your PC can be connected through this. The only thing to remember is that the USB port on the PC is designed to provide 500mA of current, and if you use a USB hub then the total current of all devices connected is still 500mA. If you require more power then you can buy powered USB hubs.

I plug in the 4 port usb targus and it doesnt respond


sometimes you have to plug a usb into these to get them to respond if this does not work try plugging it into another USB port. If this does not work than look at the wires they may have come unattached

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub


sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

Hp pavillion usb ports


They are right, some DVs have this problem. If you can live without the ports, then do it. If you can't, replacement is the only option.

Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2


Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)
