What should I do if I'm having problems installing the software?

See the suggestions below for your software installation type.

USB (printer connected to your computer with a USB cable)

Make sure you followed the software installation instructions on the Start Here sheet. If the installation fails, make sure the printer is turned on and the USB cable is securely connected at both ends.

If you're still having problems, disconnect the USB cable and uninstall the software. Follow the software installation instructions on the Start Here sheet to reinstall your software.

Before reinstalling the software, check for the following:

  • Make sure your system meets the requirements.


  • Make sure all applications (including any screen savers, virus protectors, and firewall software) are closed.


  • Make sure you have administrative rights or software installation privileges to your computer.


  • In Windows, make sure the USB Controller is working properly in Device Manager. See your Windows help system for details.
