Always get any drivers directly from the manufacturer:

USB 2 or 1 ports should do fin
The problem is that the PP 1390MF is a GDI printer. These printers rely on Windows' graphics engine to convert the page into dots on the page. As a result they are very sensitive to changes in the OS. As a result, there is a good chance that Windows 8 drivers won't work under Windows 10. KM do not seem to have a driver for Win10 at present.

You can try and use the "Windows Update" button when installing a printer. If you are lucky Microsoft will have a driver you can use.

The printer supports USB 2, so there's no point in wasting a USB 3 port on it. USB 1 will probably slow the printer down too much.

Hi Rindi,
Thank you for the comment, I already tried that before , I still after downloading the drivers available GDI for win8 , whenever I try to download the firm ware from the link you have provided, I get a message the driver is not installed, also a red color mark on the printer it self is showing after I connect using usb , so I still can not figure out what is the problem .
JavaScript Best Practices

You should not need to do anything about the firmware. Until you can sort out the driver problem, changing the firmware will only make things harder for you.

And, I always feel that printer firmware should only be updated if it fixes a problem you experience, or if it provides some new feature you require.

From your post it seems that the Win8 driver is not working. That's what I feared in my previous post. And it's one reason why I always suggest paying a little more for a non-GDI printer.

Oh well , what to do now, does that mean there is no solution to this problem ?
About the only thing you can do is to hope that KM will release a WIN10 driver for the printer.
