If you previously were using a parallel connection for the G85 you will need a USB cable.

If your laptop is running Vista the G85 will work as a printer, I do not think there is a scanner driver for Vista for the G85. The G85 print driver is built into VIsta, you only need to turn on the printer and install the USB to have the printer automatically installed.

I need cable from hp 5610 all in one to dell pc, i bought 5610 office jet all in one . i have a dell 4550 pc . i need everything it takes to hook together


Head over to the HP Parts Store site located at http://h20141.www2.hp.com/Hpparts/Default.aspx?mscssid=17D3FC6A12854685A008C66EFC2F2C0C.

Enter the Part Number 8121-0868 which is for a USB cable compatible with your printer. It looks like it's priced at $19.

Assuming you have the power cord, this should be all you need to get it working.

The printer on my G85 works fine but I cant get the scanner to work. It says that it can not connect to the computer.


This is a software problem; make sure you have installed all software besides the driver.

Also some scanners prefer USB 2.0 so make sure you're USB is not at 1.1.

good luck

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.
