"CRC" when printing is that normal?

Aug 11, 2005
  1. I'm having problems with my printer today. Every time I try to print I get a message saying "There was an error writing to USB001 for the printer (HP Deskjet 6500 series): Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)." I read that CRC usually comes up when there is a problem transporting data but in this case I'm just trying to print. What can I do to fix it? :eek:

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

    Try changing out the usb cable, or switch to
    LPT cable if the printer supports both.
    Next try re-installing the printer drivers.
    If these don't help, maybe the prob is the
    software you are printing from, ie; word, works,
    word perfect etc.
