Hp Printer 'USB device not recognised'

By j_walk44 ·
I have an HP Photosmart 2575 Printer on a Win XP SP2 system which worked fine for a month or so but now throws up the message 'USB device not recognised, a USB device attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognise it'.
I have uninstalled & re-installed the printer & tried all the USB ports. I've also installed the printer on another machine & it worked fine.

Simple Solution!

by j_walk44 In reply to drivers

Found a very simple solution for this. I just shut down the PC, unplugged the mains power completely for 5 mins & booted back up. This apparently allows any residual current in the motherboard/USB ports to disperse. Really didn't think it would work but it did.

Is it still working?

by jandijones In reply to Simple Solution!

I'm wondering if your HP printer has continued to work. I'm having a heck of a time getting mine to stay "recognized" by the USB port.

HP driver fun

by dave55lespaul In reply to Same Problem

I've had this issue with several different hp printers
When I've used the hp installation disk I do not have the issue.(When the customer has it)
But trying to install with down loaded drives from hp it seems like I encounter this far too often and need to use a serial cable to complete the install and have not found a work around yet.
