USB Device not recognized Hp OfficeJet 6600

Hello all - I use my desktop Hp 6600 (connected via usb) jet and my computer (dell E6430 latitude) says that it is a usb device not recognized.  I tried a lot of troubleshooting, including the removal of usb controllers and reinstall, but which doesn't seem to work.  I'd like to help as soon as POSSIBLE. Again, I must keep my printer cable, because the network, I refuse the acess printers or something like that.

Thank you




If I understand correctly your computer does not detect the printer. You can try the following steps and check the results.

1) inspect the cable USB and connection:- icon on the USB () facing up when the cable is connected to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and safely.

After that you make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and safely, consider the following guidelines to check other potential problems associated with USB:

  • Connect any other USB device. Connect any other USB device to the computer and check if it is detected.
  • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and on the front of some computers is maybe not powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try to connect to it in another USB port on the computer.
  • Length of the cable USB. HP recommends that the lower USB cables or equal to 5 m (16 ft 5 in) long. However, a USB cable which is 5 m (16 ft 5 in) in length must be of high quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (3 ft 3 in). Do not use connection cables to increase the length of the cable. Use a powered USB hub, if you need more length.
  • USB ports replacing. Connect the USB cable to a different port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the cause of the problem.
  • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to ensure that the existing cable is not defective.

  • PRS-600 USB device not recognized

    I am unable to get ereader PRS-600 to be recognized by the computer (Win7).
    I tried to update the software (even if I think it's in)
    (date) but the window 'connect a PRS-600 to update' does not progress and the update button is dimmed.
    I deleted the "unknown device" in the drivers, but when I reconnect the USB cable and the ereader, I always get the display of device not recognized and the message "USB device not recognized".

    I seem to have solved the problem. I contacted Sony through esupport and a chat with a tech.

    Make sure that the battery has some charge inside. Completely charge if you can.
    Stop eReader (fully)
    Remove the SD card
    Press the button Reset (at the bottom of the ereader)
    Turn it on
    While the display shows "Open book", at the same time press the button to "turn the page" (back) and the Volume button until the "Reset All" + screen
    Enter 'Yes' to reset the ereader. You may need to configure the screen (X button with the tip to draw at various points)
    If you charge the battery, you may need to contact the support chat for sorting.

  • His number disappointed + B500 USB device not recognized at startup


    We have 2 B500

    whenever I'm starting, after loading windows they give me an error "USB device not recognized" I don't know what to do any help will be greatly appreciated as it is strange that both machines are giving the same error.

    also on one of the machines the sound does not work, I tried to get out of trouble, the diagnostic says the speakers are working properly, but not her out at all.

    I'm kind of disappointed by these questions, we always buy at Dell, but we thought we would give Lenovo a chance, the machines were barely a few months, when the problem started.

    advice please?

    That error usually comes up when a non bootable USB device is connected. Check the Bios and make sure that the CD drive and HARD drive are loading first. That should solve your problem. If this is not the case, make sure that you don't have any USB stick or disk external HARD connected until the PC load.

  • Satellite L30: Usb device not recognized

    I have a problem with my laptop L30.
    When I connect my phone or a flash drive or external hard drive, it is said: Usb device not recognized one of the usb devices malfunctioned.
    Tried to reinstall windows did not help...

    is there a solution?


    Hmm. First of all, you should unplug all external USB devices.
    Then go to Device Manager and remove it all concentrators root USB and USB host controllers.
    Reboot the laptop.

    After this procedure, the operating system should recognize and should install new ports.
    Now you can connect to a plug - and play instruments. These devices should be recognized automatically. But some external USB devices need additional drivers.
    Usually these drivers are provided with the USB device.

    I would recommend this review if necessary!

    It seems that you are getting the popup "USB device not recognized", when nothing is connected.

    What is the brand and model of your computer?

    I suggest to uninstall the USB controllers and check if you get the context menu.

    Method 1: Remove and reinstall all USB controllers

    a. clickStart, type devmgmt.msc in the start search box and press ENTER.

    b. expandBus USB controllers.

    c. right-click on each device under theBus USB controllers node and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.

    d. restart the computer, and windows will install the rear USB drivers.

    If reinstalling USB host controllers fails to resolve the issue, go to method 2.

  • USB device not recognized... Unplug the thing does NOT work

    It baffles me that THOUSANDS of people have this problem, or a variant of it, and no ONE at Microsoft or elsewhere also offers a real solution. Unless of course you want to count the method "unplug your computer", which is the most foolish band-aid for a problem I never heard, even if it works for a lot of people (most). I, unfortunately, am one of those for which the "disconnect" method magic does NOT work. I tried everything what all other posters and responder suggested (BIOS upgrade, change Legacy BIOS definition Enable to disable to activate again, driver updates, uninstall all USB, full power down and restart hours later, use CMD prompt to show only devices, etc.) and do not know what else to try. I would really like to see a REAL answer as to the cause of the majority of the questions posted about the USB error outside the usual "restore your settings, use your restore disk, unplug it, replace your USB key, etc etc etc. HEY! MICROSOFT! SOLVE THE PROBLEM! OR, Hey, here's an idea, a news for you, I'm sure that... don't they exude products until they have been tested (NO! I mean really, fully tested [see XBox 360 RROD])

    In case anyone reading this is a real working solution, I'm on a Toshiba A135-S2386, Vista Home, and each USB port is unusable on any device. All ports feeds the device and noise sounds to indicate that a USB device was attached and then proceeds to the display of the error "USB device not recognized" and shows and shows an unknown device connected. It does this for any USB device.

    FINALLY: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT POST A REPLY IF YOU USED THE METHOD OF "DISCONNECT", AND IT WORKED. Grats to you for fixing your computer, but I can just not read another 400 posts of "wow it worked for me great fantastic" when it does NOT work for everyone. I need something new and real. (Sorry to be all grumpy, but I'm tired of these kinds of problems from companies making billions off the coast of junk, defective, half finished, produced a car!) "You listen to Bill?)

    UPDATE: just ran a scan of the system file Confirmation via an administrator command prompt and it's clean...
    ALSO - was not that before, but now whenever I do a complete power down / reboot thing that it gives me a "Bad Checksum" error and I have to reset the date and time in the BIOS. I need to change the battery in MB? As I said it did not have this before and the USB error was produced, but could this be the problem? Bad battery MB CMOS?

    The bios of your motherboard is probably damaged.

    step 1. See if you can find a previous version of the bios of your motherboard and return date of the bios.

    step 2. Find the latest version of the bios of your motherboard and update your bios.

    Do not use a registered version of your current version.

    To check the problem is the motherboard or operating system. find something like a live Ubuntu CD

    Both a bit slow, but are excellent tools.

    If you can see you USB devices, magicjack, ETC. your BIOS is not corrupt or motherboard problem.

    In normal windows if you see not the USB devices, magicjack, etc your windows install is corrupt.
