Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??

1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

I cant install printer usb port is damage

Which USB port Damage because there are two USB port available.
One is Printer USB port or Sec is PC USB port.
If you are say PC USB port not working first you check it USB driver installed or not, or USB connect to motherboard or not. PC there are two side USB available one is front side and sec is back side. You connect only back side, because this USB connect to main board. So you connect only back side. If not working removed driver or installed driver.
Or if you are say printer USB then change cable or port or not solved only change option.

I can't print from the computer. when I toubleshoot it says i'm not cnnected

Try a different cable and or a different usb port. If you are connecting to the usb ports in the front of your computer, try one in the back. Many of the older computers front usb ports were never connected.

Make sure your printer is turned on.

In the back of the printer, I broke the printer plug in port. I accidently pulled the wire and it broke the connector area on the printer. Does anyone know if this can be fixed? Alternatively, can I...

Usually the printers have only one USB port. If you had broke it, then it can be replaced (if mainboard is NOT DAMAGED). USB port is very cheep but you will need tools and skills to replace it. There is only USB input port(from flash memory stick) in front of the printer
good luck

Printer installation Don't see a place to plug in a cable for my HP 970cse printer

The HP 970cse is a USB printer. The ET135201 has 6 USB ports

  • 6 - USB 2.0 (2 front, 4 rear)

  • Connect your printer to either the front or rear ports. Note: a USB cable is not included with the printer and must be purchased separately.

    Which port in front of my e-machine do i plug my printer in

    I assume you are using a USB printer in which case you would insert the USB cable form your printer into the USB socket in the front of your e-machine computer. A USB port is the rectangular port, either found at the rear of the computer mainboard or in the front of the computer chassis/case.

    Printer is connected but does not print

    Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the following things first---
    · The printer cover is closed and the rear access door or optional duplexer is attached.
    · The printer is connected to the power source and turned on.
    · The cable connections are secure and the cartridges are correctly installed.
    · The paper or other media is correctly loaded in the in tray.
    Now check the printer cable connection: If the printer cable is attached to a USB hub, a printing conflict might exist. Use one of the following methods to resolve the conflict:
    · Attach the printer USB cable directly to your computer.
    · When printing, do not use other USB devices that are attached to the hub.
    Now verify if the printer is connected to the correct USB port: If the computer is configured to use both the back and front USB ports on the printer, then you might be printing to the wrong port. The computer has two versions of the printer driver: one for the front USB port and one for the back USB port. If you are connected to the back USB port, but select the printer driver that is associated with the front USB port, the printer will not print. In the application that you are printing from, click File and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens. The Print dialog box displays two versions of the printer driver. Select the version that is associated with the port to which you are printing. The issue will be resolved.

    Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
