Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer
Once i turn my printer on a message displays ( usb device not recognized) although it is proberly installed and i tried to change the usb hup but no use and tried another usb cable but no use also. i dont know wht to do ?? and if i ignored this message and tried to give it an order it sends me an error printing of the document.
I have solved this problem, it seems that the cable I used isn't sufficient enough, it was cheap A-B USB cable for printer. I used then the quality cable from my external 3,5" hardrive. I uninstalled all USB related things in device manager, then restarted my computer (just for the case, remove the laptop battery for a while when you are using laptop), then turn on computer, install the laserjet software and then if the message on screen says "connect the printer", do so. Then you should get a messages about correct installing your laserjet and problem is solved :). Good luck, I spent nearly one dat solving this :)

I'm not sure, but I think I understand that you're connecting using a USB hub? If so, try connecting it directly to a USB port. Many times an unpowered USB hub does not supply enough power to run a laser printer. Unhook the printer. Go to Printers and Faxes - delete the printer. Hook up directly to a USB port. Let the computer re-install the printer. Let me know Ed

Well i have done all the things not only changed the cable but also checked my for matter board but the problem is still the same. so the main cause is may be Usb port (For-matter) is short or if it is not then it will be solved by Updating the Firmware of the Installed Printer.
