Have you tried to shut down your computer and re-start it up again ? (to see if your USB port starts to works again ?)
One thing you should (must) do before you remove / detach a USB device (e.g. flash drive, camera, etc.) from the USB port is to make sure you properly "dismount" (eject/disconnect) the device first (e.g. use its Property menu option) before you physically remove the device (i.e. take it out - remove it from the USB port). If this is not done, you'll get the problems you're experiencing.

Hi i have a Canon MP830 and have replaced all the ink cartridgers and they all light up but my printer wont print,fax,copy.It sounds like it is printing but the pagers come out blank.It won't even send...


Some laptops cannot run some printers or scanners. Make sure your laptop can handle running the printer from a usb port. It might help to have your laptop plugged into AC power. Also, make sure you have the most current printer drivers for your particular OS installed. If your laptop can't run your printer from its usb port, you can probably connect the printer to a desktop usb or a printer port, then print from your laptop through a home network.

Usb 1.0 or usb 2,flatbed scanner compatability


Find a USB device, such as a memory-stick, that is "USB 2.0" and connect it to a USB port. If Windows XP pops-up a window ("this device will perform better when connected to a USB 2.0 port"), then you have connected it to a USB 1.1 port.

Yes, you can connect a scanner, if it has a USB connection. Not all laptops have a parallel-port ("old-style" printer) port, but some scanners require a parallel-port.

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.


make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly

Installed the scanner program for bjc-80 onto a Netbook with only USB ports...wont recognize printer/scanner,,,help


Netbooks usually doesn't have PCMCIA capability. what you sould do is to disable the bidirectional function of the printer. To disable the bidirectional support You have to open the printers properties. In the "printers and faxes" map, right click on the printer and choose properties. then on the "Ports" tab, down below there is a tick mark choice with some text like: "Enable bi-directional support " you have to clear the tick mark!

Good luck!

Cannot detect scanner


There is going to be issues with connecting it in this fashion. The usb adapters are not addressed the same as a real parallel port. This means that the drivers probably do not have a chance at working. The other issue is usb ports on laptops rarely have the power to drive devices larger than a mouse or keyboard. This means that the usb adaptor may not have enough power to function. Try plugging it into a powered usb hub then to the laptop. This may give it enough power to do what you want if the drivers are compatible of course.

Good Luck.

If all else fails goto goodwill and get a usb scanner. I always see stacks of them. Most are the usb type.

Problem scanning with samsung scx 4521f


Hi,

Sorry to have missed your initial posting...

In any case, to my understanding, this particular printer is likewise capable of USB connection. Perhaps you can try connecting it pure USB and go through the installation again. this might simplify interface and communications between notebook and scanner/printer.

If for some reason you would want to retain Printer/Parallel to Notebook/USB, you need to check your Imaging Devices in the notebook's Device Manager and verify that all drivers are installed for the Samsung SCX-4521F. There should be no yellow or red marks. If there are or if the Samsung SCX-4521F instance is not present, you may need to reinstall using the Add Hardware Option in the Control Panel. You may need to manually select the imaging device/scanner. This holds true if you are using Windows XP.

If you are using Vista, you may need to download all the Vista drivers from the Samsung website. Further, pls be informed that to my knowledge, Vista has certain issues with USB ports. Microsoft has issued a patch/update specifically for this concern. It may be downloaded from here or here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Problems using usb ports


I assume these are the built in ports you are
having trouble with.Do you have a terminal to
install another usb port via a dongle It may be
that the inner terminals of the usb receptacle
are not making good contact (defective) If you
have a junk board with same setup you
might be able to desolder the port,and
replace yours. I haven't had the occassion to
try this yet, but it might work

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device


Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.
