Samsung printer unrecognized by PC

I can fax and copy, but the error on the USB device list shows "unknown device". I have tried different cable and tried hooking up to another laptop with the same result. It has worked for over a year and now suddenly it is unrecognized???

Wont scan

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

If reinstalling the drivers doesn't work. Try manually adding the device.
1. Start>Control Panel

Don't believe everything they say as Windows 7 does have some bugs to be worked out. Take out the printer program completely and then download the program with windows 7. Windows update should fix that for you by plugging in the device after you take it out. You can download the correct driver from the canon site if needed.
