Printer doesn't respond via USB only WiFi


As my helper partner states, I quite agree but I would also use a different USB which the one you're using might be damaged, use another USB station cause maybe its also damaged. But if it states that the printer is offline...it will never print because its not selected as your active Printer. Actually you are sending the printing jobs to that printer wich is not active or recognized.

Usb connection brack recionnection


Most external webcams directly hook up to a computer via a USB cable connection. However, if this cable is damaged, it will prevent the video signal from reaching the computer, rendering the web camera useless. Depending on the severity of the damage, you may be unable to correct the USB cable, but there are a few methods of checking and fixing the webcam's USB cable.

Disconnect the USB cable from your computer and check the connection port on the cable. If the cable is dirty or dusty, you will need to clean it to improve the connection and signal transfer. Spray a few shots of compressed air into the interior of the metal connection port. This will remove dust and other debris that may be stuck inside. Connect the USB port into a different connection port. Some USB connections do not accept all USB equipment, so changing the connection of the USB cable may correct any connection issues you are having. Look over the cable itself. If there are any tears or slight cuts in the wire, wrap electrical tape around it. This will seal off the damaged area while preventing any of the video signal from escaping through the open "wound." Delete the driver, then reinstall the driver for the webcam. The current driver may be damaged, so reinstalling it will correct the problem. Click "Start," "Control Panel," "System," "Hardware" and "Device Manager." Scroll through the list of drivers installed until you find the webcam listing. Right-click it and choose "Delete." Restart the computer, then insert the driver installation CD (provided with the webcam) and follow the onscreen prompts to install the driver back onto the computer.
Hope this helps.

Hello.
It sounds like a issue with the hardware inside the printer. if possible try the printer on another PC, or try another USB Cable. Sometimes the cable can appear fine but can have small breaks inside it. You can also try your current cable on another persons printer to rule out the cable.
If you can not get the printer working on another persons computer I would suggest replacing it. it is cheaper than getting a tech to fix it.

Try a new cable and a different USB port. It's possible dirt is making for a bad connection or that the cable is slightly damaged and this other computer is more sensitive to the problem.

I hope this helps.

Canon Pixma ip3600 message saying printer is not online


This could be a problem with the port. If you have the printer attached to a USB hub, directly connect to the computer. Try connecting to a different USB port and test the current port with a known working device. Consider trying a new USB cable (minor damage could be a factor in signal loss).

I hope this helps.

Your right on the money. What your referring to is damage or dislodged cable. Even quite possible damage due to mishandling or static electricity. Most Best Buys will be able to take a peek inside and tell you.

Printer not connected to hp laptop


If this laptop and printer combination worked before, try a new cable. They often fail inside without any notable outer damage.
