    For fixing the printer problems in Windows 7, you will have to;
    • Check the hardware by checking whether the cables are connected properly
    • Check the power
    • Use an automated trouble shooter tool that can find and fix the problems present in installation, connections and errors in a printer
    • Driver software has to be updated
    There are three ways for finding and installing a driver. It includes - Using Windows update, Installation of software from the printer manufacturer, Downloading and installing the driver yourself

    HELLO DEAR,

    Dear if you are facing problem while connecting printer then dear you must have to check the connecting cable from your computer to printer so that it is properly inserted to both side connectors. You must have to check whether your printer drivers are properly installed so that there should be not the compatibility problem. Dear you must have to check the power supply cord so that the printer is getting the power to work or not.
    Dear may be your computer drivers are out of date so you must have to update them and try again.

    SO DEAR BY CHECKING THESE ALL PROBLEM ASPECTS I THINK YOU CAN ABLE TO RUN YOUR PRINTER SUCCESSFULLY.

    GOOD LUCK,

    Firstly check whether that problem is with your printer hardware or the
    software.

    To do so you connect your printer to another computer if it works there then
    it was the software.

    So try to re-install the USB drivers or try to update the drivers to do so do as i say.....

    1.Firstly go to the start menu.

    2.Then make a right click on 'My Computer'.

    3.There you click on 'manage'.

    4.There you go to the 'Device manager'.

    5.There you double click on 'Universal serial Bus Controller' and then 'USB Root Hub'.

    6.Then you go to the 'Drivers' tab.

    7.There you click on 'Update driver' to update it.

    If the problem is with the hardware then try to do as i say..........

    1.Firstly make sure that the USB port is OK.

    2.Then check that power connection between USB and motherboard.

    3.Then try to check the cables the printer settings in your computer.
