One of the first questions any amateur tech support investigator should ask when trying to decipher a printer problem is simple – is it plugged in? With all of the cords and printer parts that people can accumulate around their business or home office, these invaluable elements can easily become misplaced. This is an especially common ailment in an environment where a single printer is accessed by numerous computers or laptops connecting to the printer at different times. They may each require their own USB cord to make the connection or share a common cord compatible with all of the different sources of input to your laser printer.
Another scenario that could require the purchase of additional printer cables is the need for an extension cord. Do you need your computer and printer to sit on opposite ends of your desk? Or does your power cord need a few extra feet in order to reach around multiple obstacles and take advantage of a hard to reach electrical outlet? In both scenarios The Printer Depot has a product that can keep your printer connected, powered up and communicating. Available products include USB cables, network cables and power cords that can help connect the various pieces of the puzzle to your laser printer.
One thing you will want to ensure before ordering is the type of printer cable that your connection requires. Some printers can communicate directly with your computer through a USB cable while others require the more heavy-duty parallel cable or network cable in order to work properly. Any of the well-trained staff members at The Printer Depot can help you find a cable that will be compatible with your printer and assist in solving any associated wiring issues.
The Printer Depot offers multiple types of printer cables in many different lengths, including six-foot and ten-foot extension cords, to help you easily keep the elements of your office connected. These cables are relatively inexpensive and can even be a helpful product to have around the office before the need for one even arises.
