Selected FAQ

Q:
I'm getting a communication error when I try to print with a USB connection. What should I do?
A:
Try the following:

  • Make sure the USB cable is a shielded "AB" cable not more than 10 feet long.

    Note: Do not use devices that extend the length of the cable because they can cause signal degradation.


  • If you're using a USB hub with your printer, connect the printer directly to your computer.

    Note: Do not connect through a USB keyboard. The keyboard acts like a hub and can interfere with signal transmission.


  • Use a different port on your computer.


  • Make sure there is no error on the printer.
