I replaced the hp1522nf that was there with the exact same printer. just unplugged the old and plugged in the new one and i cant get it print.


It might be the same printer but sometimes Windows creates new virtual ports. I suggest unistall and reinstall if you haven't try that. If the problem persist check in the device manager (just type that in search of windows) and check if the unit its recognized under universal serial bus controllers. If its there you have a software issue, sometimes it will be there with a yellow exclamation mark, just right click on it and then click on update driver, follow the instrutions and choose recomended actions always. If its not there, change the USB cable, or increase the USB Speed in the printer menu, under service from high to full. If you have a network connection the might have a different IP address so with the reinstall will be solved

Can´t install my photosmart C3180 on my Windows XP.


I recently have the same problem with windows XP ( when I connected the printer the message USB device unknown message appeared) Before wasting your time unistalling and reinstalling driver, I strongly recommend this:

Change the USB cable for a new one that works properly for USB 2.0 FULL SPEED . What does it mean ?. Well if you have an older cable is very probably that it doesn't work well at USB2.0 full speed (480Mbps) because it's not properly shielded, if you buy a new one check specifications on the box to see if it is prepared for 480Mbps. Testings in other PCs is not relevant unless you're ABSOLUTLY SURE that USB ports are working at full speed in those PCs

I changed old cable for a new one ( Belkin), and no more problems.

Remove usb cable, Unistall software and drivers, reinstall software and driver and connect only when software prompts to do so.

My Epson R1800 keeps resetting itself


You have done all the usuall checks, but you may have a usb power problem, try the printer without any other usb peripheral in and see if it stays connected. If not, then the usb connection or workings in the printer may be faulty and keeps disconecting, hence the bing bong as it re connects to windows. You may have faulty hardware, leave the printer disconnected from usb and mains for 15 mins or so then try again.
