Make sure that the USB cable is properly connected on your printer and the port from your pc as well.
Check the Device Manager, and see if your printer is under USB Controllers, if not try using anothe USB cable.

Thanks

Hp 2600 no longer prints from my laptop


Hi Friend,
I think One time uninstall printer software and restart laptop and installation before clean the virus in laptop then install printer driver. If any error show in installations time then antivirus sort time disable. And software full install then proper check it printer driver show in control panel. If problem same then change printer cable connector.
If then not solved then finally you check other OS laptop may be find error.

Thanks..

My printer will not connect to my laptop


You need to put your printer back online. Depending on your operating system, (I will assume some flavor of Windows) you need to find your printer listed in "Control Panel". Right click your printer icon with your mouse, and choose "Use printer online".

If the document does not print and the job remains queued, a printer icon will appear to the left of the time on the Windows taskbar. Double-click the printer icon in the taskbar. Click on the document title. From the document menu, click "restart".

Prints look washed out .Plus cartridges show empty even though they have just been filled. Noel


If using generic cartridges, try using original manufacturer's.
If utility software installed, try running the head/nozzle/check/cleaning/realigning functions.
(look for an icon in taskbar or in directories installed by your printer software)

What happens when you try to print?
1. When you try to print do you see the printer icon on the taskbar? (lower right)
2. Do you see the printer in your printers folder?(start/settings/control panel/ printers) Might need installed
3. Is the printer your default printer? (right click on the printer in the above area and select "set as default printer")
4. Is it plugged in, turned on and plugged into your computer?
5. Has the software been installed or recently updated?
Let me know if this helps
