Did you install the drivers before you plugged in the printer? Usally the driver install will tell you when to plug in the cable.

I need to connect my canon iR2016j with my windows 7 PC , my computer can not identify it as USB connected hardware


Make sure the printer is Windows 7 ready, if so read the manual carefully, some of the printers software must first be installed before you can put the power on and connet the usb cable, i suggest you uninstall the printer and follow the instructions carefully

Hp j3680 was installed but now it cant be recognised on the usb port.


Check your USB ports and cable. If you have the unit plugged into a hub, try directly connecting to the computer. (A bus-powered hub is at higher risk but failures are known with both.) Try swapping to a new port (if you are already directly connected to the computer). Check if a known working device works in the port. Ports can burn out under some situations.

Try a brand new cable as well. In some cases, you might want to try unplugging the power connection as well as the USB cable to clear any issues on the printer.

I hope this helps.

My windows xp was reloaded and now when rehooking up my 7200 all in one, its not working. All wires are connected, original installation disk was used.


Did you install the printer software and drivers before you connected the printer to the computer by a USB cable? Uninstall any drivers that have already been installed then restart. You can get the drivers again from the web site, http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers . Wait until the software asks you to connect to the printer before connecting the USB cable. If you are connecting to a router for an ethernet connection, then that can be cabled together before installing the software.

If the drivers were installed correctly, start diagnosing a problem with the cables. Try new cables, changing ports, and a known working device on the port. When you reinstalled XP, did you include the motherboard drivers specific to your machine (that will have the USB and ethernet drivers)? If you missed those steps, you may need to uninstall the printer before doing that update and then restart.

I hope this helps.

Where do you connect the usb cable for printer to computer.


Does not matter which one, they are all the same. Just plug it in to the least accessible one so it will not be in the way.

How to connet to the computer and how to find drivers


If your printer has a "Centronics" printer connection (a large 2"wide connector) and your computer has only USB connections, you need a "USB to Centronics" printer cable. Easiest way is to buy one from the internet. Use your favourite search site or EBay to locate and purchase. Most computer stores will not have them in stock.
