How to know to what USB port the printer is plugged to

In very few cases it is really known where the printer is connected through the USB cable since computers have many USB ports and those are not identified with a number neither in the front or back side of the PC.

It is necessary that the user identify the USB port the printer is plugged to through the computer. To do so, go to Printers, if using Windows XP click on Start and then go to Printers and Faxes, if using Windows 7 click on Start and then on Devices and Printers and the printers plugged will be shown.

When the printer is found right click on it and click on the Properties option (the last option in the menu displayed) when using Windows XP or go to Printer Properties (about the seventh option) when using Windows 7. After going to properties click on Ports and black shaded the port assigned to the printer will be shown.
  • In the section "Clear ink counter" select the "Main" button , check the printer has paper because after the process of resetting the ink counter is finished,a printing is done. In this case the ink counter eraser shows in English CLEAR INK COUNTER.
  • Once the printer ends  the procedure of cleaning the ink counters, turn the printer off and turn it on again, it must be ready. In case of having any kind of problem, please contact us by leaving a comment in this post.
