Locating and buying the connector is the easy part!.

if you live in uk then:

Extracting the old connector is another thing, unless you have got specialist soldering equipment I would leave it.

Reset my Dell 926 all in one printer


The Dell 926 printer is an All-In-One model that you can use as a printer, scanner and a fax machine. When the printer becomes unresponsive there may be a communication problem between the printer and your computer. To correct this type of problem you need to first verify that the USB connector cable is not malfunctioning. You can do this by resetting the communication settings between the computer and the printer.

There wasn't a USB cord there. What cord shou8ld I buy?

Printer connection cables are not always included; this is something to watch for when purchasing new printers.

As an example, Lexmark sells a USB (2meter) cable for use with their printers. It has a Type A connector on one end (connects to computer) and a Type B connector on the other end (connects to printer).

See illustration here:

You should however be able to purchase a suitable cable at your local supplier; there are also on-line suppliers who are very reasonably priced.

Try to stay under 10 feet or 2 meters in length and ask for a cable with a Type A and and a Type B connector for use with an USB printer interface.

No problem. Lost me cable to connect my dell inspiration lap top to my printer. I just need the cord to the 626 printer from my lap top. Thank you George Mockus

Go to any "Dollar Store" or "Thrift Store", and don't pay more than $3 for a "USB A-B Printer Cable". It will have a "flat" connector at one end, and a "rectangular" connector at the other end.

I have an epsonNX300 and I don't know which cord to is the one to plug into my printer and computer.

This printer connect to USB port, cord for it is about 1.8m (6') long, on one end it have flat connector, this connector will go to your USB port on the back of your computer (check which way! one side have connector, it should slip easy into the port!), another end is more on the square side (tapered sides on one edge!), this square bit is connecting to your printer, again, align cable correctly to the port!

Please visit this site to have look how USB cable looks:

To install this printer correctly:

1. remove printer from the box, remove all packing and tapes (about 100miles of tape all around.... :-)), follow instruction how to set up your printer from attached booklet
2. install software (drivers) on your computer,
3. connect printer to power
4. when called, connect usb cable to printer and computer.
5. finish installation and reboot computer

Hope this will help you setting up the printer, let us know how succesfull you were!

I've lost the cord that connects the printer to the computer. What type of cord do I need?

You need a standard USB printer cable. It will have a different type of connector on each end. The end that plugs into your computer is Connector 1: USB Type A Male

The end that plugs into your printer is
Connector 2: USB Type B Male

I have lost all plug in's for my desk top printer can I order new one?

HP and other companies will quite happily sell you one but you will pay a premium price for it. You can also just buy any replacement power cord for a pc for a few dollars. The usb cable is also just s a standard item. If you can buy them locally you should get both for under $10 instead of being cloers to $50 from HP. I've run across both in dollar stores and computer shops.

The only thing you have to watch for when you buy a replacement is making sure the printer usb cable has the correct ends. One end that plugs into the computer is a standard USB connector and the printer end will either look the same or will look like a doghouse shape (seenon end). Just look at the printer before you go to the store and you should be fine.

Can i use any usb cord to plug my printer into tower? Moved and found power cord but not other and i forgot what it looks like.

There are various types of USB cables for various purposes.
You need to look at the USB connector on the printer and the computer.
The USB connector on the computer will be a female connector approx 13mm x 5mm and have 4 contacts on one side.
The printer USB connector most likely will be a female connector approx 9mm x 7 mm and two corners have a small chamfer.
The printer cable will most likely be 4 pin USB A male to B male type.

I'm not sure if I have the correct cord or if I have it pluged into the correct port.

It is either a usb "A" connector which is the squarish side of the usb cable and the flatter "B" connector is the side that goes into your computer's usb jack. Some printers, like yours also still use a parallel port which is a Centronics big, wide rectangular connector that connects to the printer side and the other end is a DB25 parallel connector than goes to the parallel DB25 printer jack on your computer. You must have at least one of those cables but you only use one or the other. The usb will be configured to a usb local printer port or the parallel will use the LPT1 port. will provide you with a quick install brochure with pictures for you to see. post back if you need more help!
