Question about HP DeskJet 3550 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Cable problem As soon as you try and connect an extension usb cable to the printer cable itself, the system (XP Pro) doesnt recognise the printer. When connecting only the printer cable without extension, it works fine. We have tried this on different pc's, with different extension cables?

If you are talking about a USB extension over 15 or 16 feet in length then you will need something like this:

I am sure you can buy a signal booster just to plug in the line but I can't find any at the moment.

Usb extension cables may give you troubles, buy a longer usb single cable, possibly a well sielded one (ask seller) long usb cable can give you troubles due to the bigger signal loss on a longer wire.

When printers USB cable is plugged in it is not recognised. Driver installs ok butcomputer does not communivate with printer.


Unless your printer main board has failed, the only reason that a USB connection would not communicate is if your printer is turned off or if the USB printer cable or connection is faulty. Try connecting other equipment with the cable and see if that gets recognised by your computer also try connecting to a different USB socket on your computer.
Hope this helps.

My pc is showing that the usb cable connected to the printer has malfunctioned or has not been recognised


Simplest thing to try is another USB cable. Still not working, then problem could be in the USB connector on printer.

Possible it could be a conflict with another connected USB device. Try unplugging all USB devices and wait for the PC to drop those connections. You can see these in the Device Manager. Then plug in just the printer.

Turn off the printer and unplug the USB cable. Open up Device Manager. In the View menu, make sure that Show hidden devices is checked. Click on the + sign next to Printers in the right-hand pane. Uninstall any entries for Laserjet P2015. Reinstall the drivers for the printer. When instructed, plug in the USB cable and turn on the printer. It should recognize the device and allow you to print a test page.

Dear AJP82

As soon as you start the printer when your computer workin. the computer should recognise . If Yes recognising then you can down load the compatible driver from Win xp CD or from HP website. Else try changing printer cable with other cable. Or if printer allows parallel or USB try either of them.
