Right USB Port stops working after disconnecting device since 10.9.2

Hi,
Since updating to 10.9.2 the right USB port on my MBA stops working after diconnecting a device (tested: external hard drive, USB flash drive, USB HSPA Modem). The only way to get the port recognizing the device on that port is to do a restart. If the device is connected from starting the MBA it works fine, if I then eject the drive and reinsert it or a different USB device the device doesn't get recognized. The devices do get power, my WD passport ultra spins up just fine, the USB HSPA modem also indicates it's working (with signal) but nothing shows up in finder or diskutility. If the modem is connected from start (and thus working) and then disconnect from the internet but not remove the drive I can reconnect to the internet. The problem only occurs after disconnecting the device. The port becomes inactive. The left USB port works as expected.
Steps I've taken:
Disk Persmission
PRAM
SMC

It's an Apple Pro keyboard and mouse, the dongle is
plugged into the Mac and not the keyboard. The same
set-up is, and has been working on all our other
Macs.
The sleep issue sounds interesting- hum, maybe...
Is your keyboard plugged into one of the USB connections on an Apple monitor? If so, you may want to change that connection to one that is on the G5 itself. My monitor came with a warning note indicating that problems will likely occur if the keyboard is connected to the monitor.
I also had a problem with the automatic sleep function. After much trouble-shooting and a logic board replacement, it was concluded that coming out of the automatic sleep function with any USB device active would freeze the entire USB bus. After disabling automatic sleep in system preferences, I've had no freezing problems. My machine works fine with the manual sleep function in the Apple Menu.

  • 1 of 2 USB ports stopped working after 10.7.2 upgrade

    I have the newest Macbook Pro.  I upgraded to 10.7.2 today and immediately after, 1 of my 2 usb ports stopped working.   Thought it may be the cable, so I switched cables.  Tried plugging in my iPhone, my portable drive and nothing.   Both work on the other port though.   Both ports worked fine before the update. 
    I've rebooted 4x. 
    Suggestions?

  • Help, 10.6.8 update, all usb ports stop working after 10hrs

    I've been running 10.5.8 for ever and finnaly tried to update to 10.6.8.. After I did it, the usb ports all kick out any connected devises after around 10 or so hours. I ran of the install disk, using disc utillty, disk repair, and repair permisions a few times and it did not help.
    I did the install a few times  again to try to see if it would help and didnt.
    i tried an erase and install and migrated everything over from my orignal back up external drive that is running 10.5.8 and issue is still  there.
    My old 10.5.8 back up external drive works fine and does not have this issue, and I have been using that as my start up drive instead and working from there. But that is not really a solution and a temp work around.
    Any suggestions would really help. thanks!

    I have a early 2008 macbookpro 2.8 duel with silver keys.
    I purchaed the 10.6 disk from the apple store. I've had the machine for years and purchased it refurbished from apple.
    I did the erase and install and migrated everything over from external drive, then did update to 10.6.8 and the usb ports still would stop working after a few hours.. Then I read on another apple community forus to reset pram, and pull out the power cable, take out the battery and hold power key for 5 seconds, then restart. that seemed to fix usb issue so far..
    But overall my computer seems to be running slower then when using just 10.5.8 and it did not wake from sleep once and I had to force power off and restart.. But maybe its just getting used to 10.6.8. we will see..
    Also, on another note, my battery is totally dead, and I can only run computer with power cable.. Will this affect things? it never did with 10.5.8..
    Oh, on my erase and install, I just did the simplest version and did not do the full erase to zero using he advanced security measures.. I just did the one where it writes on top of everything..

  • First USB port stops working after random time and won't work until I restart

    Hey guys
    I have this problem on my late 2011 Macbook Pro 13 inch,
    It's been for a year already and it really freaks me out and drive me crazy
    My first USB port next to the thunderbolt stops working after like 3 days, and it won't respond until I restart my computer or log off and log in again.
    If I restart my computer, USB stops working after 3 days and won't respond until I restart
    If I log off it works for like a couple of hours and then stops again
    I have tried EVERYTHING, SMC reset - no luck, PRAM reset - same results, Upgraded to lion same results, Upgraded to mountain lion - SAME RESULT
    And I can't take it to an apple store because I'm not from the US
    I am 100% sure this is a software problem and I've seen here that many people have faced this problem
    Please help, it really freaks me out

    I'm sure this isn't what you want to hear but unless you really are using your laptop 24 hours a day, is there any reason why you don't just shut it down and reboot when you're ready to use it again? I have to wonder how many other MacBook Pro owners potentially have the same problem but when they quit computing for the day, their computers quit too.

  • USB ports stop working after windows 7 installation via USB  Boot camp

    topend macbook pro retina 15 model purchased in Jan 2014 ,upto date.OS X 10.9.1
    tried installing windows 7 ultimate through boot camp using USB. the installation is fine and smooth. windows 7 ultimate is properly installed but the point where you install the support software through USB all the USB ports die out just before logging in into windows. Also a red light on the headphone jack goes on. NO USB flash drive orUSB device is operational or in other words detected by the mac. Hence neither can I  finish the support software installation which has all the necessary drivers nor connect to the internet . tried the SMC/NVRAM reset as instructed by the apple support but no change in the situation.
    USB ports fully operational when boot in MAC os .
    Another problem I face is when I try connect my iphone 4S to macbook pro via USB it keeps connecting and disconnecting and makes the charging sound repeatedly . The same iphone can connect to other laptops flawlessly.
    please help .
    Thanks

    Since you just bought it, you may want to make a Genius Bar appointment and let them diagnose the issue. Use your warranty. Bring your phone and cable along too.

    Hey Eyraud,
    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    Take a look at the article linked below, it provides general troubleshooting suggestions that may be able to resolve the USB connection issue with your MacBook Pro.
    OS X Yosemite: If a USB device isn’t working
    If those suggestions don't resolve the issue, try running the Apple Hardware Test as shown in this article:

  • Satellite P850 - right hand USB ports stopped working

    I have a new Satellite P850, after a short period the two right hand usb ports stopped working, I only had a wireless mouse plugged into them at the time. Is there a reset for these ports, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no change.
    Any one have any thoughts.

    First of all, I don't think you should have done that.
    The solution, either a full system recover (probably not necessary) or reinstall the drivers manually. Since they are USB 3.0 (I guess for what I googled about the P850) they use different drivers (specially if we are talking about the sleep and charge ones) so go ahead and download them from toshiba website, that should solve it...

  • A barcode scanner that was connected directly to the Mac's USB port stopped working as the "USB had too much power drawn", even though it has worked for over a year in that port.  WHen we plugged it into the port on the keyboard, the device works. Why?

    A barcode scanner that was connected directly to the Mac's USB port stopped working as the "USB had too much power drawn", even though it has worked for over a year in that port.  When we plugged it into the port on the keyboard, the device works. Why?  Obviously the device is operational.  Could the USB port have burned out from having too much power drawn?  If so, is it reparable?

    It can't draw "too much" power, it can only draw as much as the USB port is able to provide and no more. IIRC, the keyboard port has a lower power output than the iMac's port.
    That being said, yea, it's possible that the port has failed and it can be replaced or if another port works you can use that one. Although if it is still under warranty or covered by Apple Care, then I would take it to an Apple Store or service provider to get the port repaired.

  • HP Pavilion dv6 All 4 USB ports stopped working

    Hello,
    I recently bought a Pavilion dv6-6c11sa laptop. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Everything was working fine for about a week, and then yesterday all of the USB ports stopped working. I have 4 USB ports in total, two 2.0 and two 3.0. No matter what peripheral device I plug in, mouse or flash drive etc, they're not recognized by the laptop. The lights don't even light up on the devices, regardless of the port. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers in device manager, taking out the battery and rebooting, installing the chipset drivers (AMD), nothing works. No programs had been installed 3 days prior to the occurence, although I had rebooted several times in that time frame. I simply booted up the laptop yesterday, and nothing worked.
    Could anyone offer a solution or suggestion, please?

  • I have a Pavillion dvd Model 1245dx. USB ports stopped working. How can I fix this?

    My USB ports stopped working.  So did my DVD drive.  Any ideas how to fix this?

    Back up all data before proceeding.
    Step 1
    From the menu bar, select
               ▹ System Preferences... ▹ Date & Time ▹ Time Zone
    Check the box marked
              Set time zone automatically using current location
    if it's not already checked. If the box is checked, uncheck it and then check it again. Test.
    If the correct location and time zone aren't shown in the preference pane, then either Wi-Fi is turned off, or you're not within range of a network in the Location Services database. Under those conditions, the computer can't determine your location.
    Credit for this idea to ASC member Easyas314.

The list of recent places displayed in Maps will be lost.

  • USB Ports stopped working - Vista Home Premium (32bit)

    I reloaded Windows Mobile Device Center yesterday.  When I got home and booted my computer, all 3 USB Ports and the card reader do not work.  There is power, but no use of the device.  I have read several help posts on this and I have attempted to fix without success.  The one thing I keep reading is the USB Root Hub.  I do not have this in my device manager.  I have uninstalled all of the Universal USB Controllers in attempt to allow Windows to install the drivers.  I am getting a Code 39 error and it says the system cannot locate the preconfigured driver folders.  I cannot use a mouse, printer, or sync my phone without the use of my USB Ports.  Can anyone please help me?

  • USB ports not working after OSX 10.9.1 update

    I have a late 2011 MBA 13".
    The 2 USB ports stopped working as soon as I updated to 10.9.1.
    I tried zapping PRAM and resetting the SMC.
    I even turned the thing off for hours and still nothing.
    Any idea how to fix?
    Everything was fine until I did the update.
    Thanks.

    This is not a known bug affecting 2011 MBA computers with 10.9.1 so there is something wrong with your installation. Since zapping PRAM and resetting the SMC did not work I suggest that you try one of two things but first make sure you have backed up your computer.
    1) download Mavericks and reinstall it. Sometimes an update goes awry and a reinstall fixes it. Since doing this won't disturb any of your data or applications it would be my first choice. You'll be downloading 10.9.1 so you won't have to perform any updates.
    2) boot into the recovery mode, erase the hard drive and then download and install Mavericks. Once Mavericks is finished installing you'll be asked if you'd like to migrate data and applications from a backup. Say yes and if your backup drive isn't already connect it, do so. Select your applications folder and account folders from the list and let the Setup Manager do its magic.
    BTW - this is why one of my several backup hard drives is a cloned backup using Carbon Copy Cloner (SuperDuper! Is another good choice). I can boot up my computer using this backup and download the newest version of Mavericks on it if I haven't already done so. I always quit the installer first and make a copy of it because the installer program deletes itself once it is finished which is something of a pain. It gives me more options including being able to boot my computer with it, erase the computer and copy the installer to the computer rather than having to perform the download all over again if step 1 fails. Since I always download a new copy of the OS when Apple releases an update this computer will have the newest version of the installer so I also can skip the download step of option 1 and just copy it over and install on the computer.

  • One usb port stopped working today

    One of my USB ports stopped working today. I think it may be related to Itunes update today. Has anyone else seen this recently? I restarted my computer - but that didn't help. I have a MacBook Pro - running Lion 10.7.5
    Any suggestions? I saw one USB Hub when I went to Apple --> About this Mac, but couldn't tell if both were there.
