The display in device manager for the USB is (REST)

HP Recommended

I cannot connect the printer with my laptop. I've tried reinstall and change the cable but it still cannot work. I've search and I've found out that in my device manager it displayed as (REST). Please help me as I just got this printer for the first day. 😞

Hi @Penny5224,

 

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with your HP DeskJet printer. Don't worry I'll be really glad to help you with this.

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

What exactly seems to be an issue with the printer?

Do you get any error message on the printer screen or on the computer screen?

How is the printer connected? USB/Wireless

Are you able to make a copy from the printer?

 

In the meantime, let's try these steps here: 

 

Perform a Hard reset on the printer and make sure that the printer is connected directly to the wall outlet and not to the surge protector.

 

Remove the cartridges from the printer.

With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

Remove USB cable, if present.

Wait for 2-3 minutes, press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge.

Now plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord (This is important) and then plug back the power cord to the printer.

Turn on the printer and wait till warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle.

 

Let’s first try and make a “photocopy” to determine whether the issue is with the printer or not. Place a document on the scanner glass and choose “Copy” option. If the printer is making a good copy, then the printer hardware is fine.

 

I would start by checking the installed printer software by downloading and running the HP Print and Scan Doctor. This tool can diagnose and fix many printing and printer software related issues. Please use this link to help you with that information: http://hp.care/2biN2XE 

 

For more assistance, please follow the steps suggested in the support document for - HP Printers - Printer is Offline (Windows)  & for HP Printers - Printer is Offline (Mac)

 

Please respond to this post withe the details of the Operating system and with the results of the troubleshooting for further assistance.

 

Eagerly waiting for your response!

I hope you have a good day ahead,

And Feel free to ask your queries as this forum has some of the best people in the world available and ready to help.
