The 5P has connections in the back of the printer, left hand side, under a removable panel. The power plug is under a similar panel on the right side. (as you face the printer from the front) There are connections for appletalk and serial under that left panel but not USB. If you want to use this printer with a modern computer you will have to work from either a serial port or an ethernet converter such as the Asante. Plug the ethernet into your router or RJ 45 jack on the computer and on the Asante. Plug appletalk from the round connector on the Assante into the HP 5P. NOTE: The 5p will not work with a Mac. The 5MP printer will.

Sometimes when you want to print a document, you choose "Print" and select your favorite printer but nothing happens. You look at the printer menu and encounter the pesky "Printer Offline" message. You can get your printer back online in no time.

Cant connect my SX200 via usb to my laptop

If you are runnig Vista, disconnect your printer form your computer, reboot and wait for Vista to come all the way up. When Vista is ready, plug your usb cable into your computer. Vista should then say it has forund a new device and follow the instructions. If Vista does not see the printer, then your USB cable, or one of your USB ports (PC or printer) are bad. Make sure the printer is powered on and ready when you do this.

hey emma

assumeing your laptop has a normal vista (you don't need to worry about that)
then this is the right driver to download

It is the full feature software, you need to download it on the laptop.

If it doesn't work then we can try another version.

Let me know.
