To address the USB printing support error, consider the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Restart both the computer and printer to resolve potential minor glitches.
  2. Inspect the USB connection. Ensure the cable securely links the printer and computer. Alternatively, test with a new USB cable.
  3. Update your printer drivers. Issues might stem from outdated or compromised drivers. Acquire the most recent drivers from the printer’s official site.
  4. Reinstall printer drivers. If a mere update doesn’t resolve the issue, uninstall the printer via the Control Panel’s “Devices and Printers”, then reboot and install the updated drivers.
  5. Utilize the Windows printer diagnostic tool. Found in the Control Panel under “Troubleshooting”, this tool can pinpoint and rectify printer-related issues.
  6. Turn off the USB selective suspend. This power-saving feature might conflict with some printers. Navigate to “Power Options” in the Control Panel, adjust advanced settings, and disable USB selective suspend for both battery and wired modes.
  7. Experiment with another USB port. If the error persists after trying the aforementioned solutions, shift the printer’s connection to an alternate USB port.

If none of the above solutions worked, consider contacting the printer’s manufacturer for expert advice.

Here are some potential solutions that might help solve the “USB printing support” error on your Windows 10 device.

  • Try a Different USB Port: Another probable problem could be with the USB port that the device is using. Attach the printer to the other USB port of your laptop or desktop.

  • Check for Windows Updates: Your first step should be to ensure that your Windows 10 is up-dated. Every now and then Microsoft comes up with upgrades to resolve the popular problem users are facing. You can update by clicking on Settings > Update & Security and then choose the option of Windows Update, which will provide you with the operating system’s new features and bug fixes.

  • Run Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter: Windows has an in-built troubleshooter that can only find issues, but there is no guarantee that the issues will be fixed with hardware or devices. You can perform this clean-up by accessing the Control Panel.

  • Check the Printer for Issues: Ensure that the printer itself is 100% in order. Try using a different PC, and if this fails, contact us, and we will remove the bug. Then, the computer is the reason. If the printer can work with another device, it is a sign that you need to fix the problem with your computer.

  • Contact Manufacturer Support: Explaining all the workarounds that might fix issues is not possible. Accordingly, calling the HP support branch might be an option. For example, the possible recommended fixes of the bugs or updates that are necessary for resolving the issue.
