Where do you hookup the printer to the one zx series


Hello,

Where you hookup your printer to your PC will depend in part on what interface your printer uses to communicate with your PC.

Some of the possibilities are the parallel port, the USB port or a lan port.

Most printers these days use the USB port.

There appears to be four USB ports on the back of your machine.

How can I share my HP officejet 5610 all in one printer that is connected to my desktop that has windows XP with my windows vista laptop?


1. Unplug your USB cable from the back of the Windows XP PC and plug the USB cable directly into your Windows Vista PC.
2. The Windows Vista drivers for your printer should be automatically loaded and your printer will be installed on your Windows Vista PC. If this was successful, skip right to step 3.
If step 2 is not successful

i. Download the Windows Vista printer driver for your printer from
the manufacturers website.

1. If your printers manufacturer has not created a Vista driver
yet, retry step 2.

ii. Install the driver on your Windows Vista PC. During
installation, youll be prompted to connect the printer to your PC.
Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.

3. After installation is complete, open the Printers icon in the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right-click on your printer that was just installed and choose Properties.
5. Navigate to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, then select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the Port Name, enter the exact network path and share name of your printer. (ex. - \\HOMEPC\Printer2) 8. Click OK and make sure that this new port is selected with a check in the checkbox.
9. Click Apply and then OK to close the printer properties.
10. You should now be able to print from your Windows Vista PC to a shared printer located on your Windows XP PC.

Cant load driver in port lpt1


AN IEEE 1284 port is a parallel port protocol. Lpt1 is a physical port on the PC that attaches to the printer.

Basically, the PC is telling you that it expects the printer to be connected to the LPT1 port on the printer and that it is expecting the printer to be conversant with the IEEE1284 protocols.

Given what you have described, you should not be having a problem connecting the PC to the printer.

Please let me know what the exact failure is and the make and model of the printer that is causing the communication between the PC and printer to go "Toes Up."

USB to Parallel connection (Panasonic KX-P1121)


I would recommend buying a Printer parallel port connection (PCI to LTP1), install it into the system, and use the printer parallel cable.

Trying to connect from USB laptop to parallel printer


You can't have a double hook up to it,When the parallel port is used the usb port is disabled and when you use the usb port the parallel port is disable.This is done to prevent damage to the printer.You can network the laptop with the pc and print that way though

Laptop running vista and pc running XP can't get laptop to print on printer connected to PC laptop is wireless


share the printer first on the main pc (desktop)
get the sharename and full computer name of the main pc, its case sensitive.......

then, install the vista driver on the laptop. (note: you need vista drivers installed locally on the laptop because the main pc has a different operating system)

after installing the driver, go to the printers folder, right click the printer icon, go to properties, go to the ports tab, hit add port.
a new window will open giving you the option of local port.
select local port then click new port! on the space type in the information you got earlier... \\fullcomputername\sharename then click add

ex: \\rblb55\Printer1

this will add a port on the selections, make sure the one thats checked is the port that you just added. click apply or ok to close those windows.

then print............

Zebra LP 2844 parallel communication problem


The printer is installed on the PC using a specific port. If it's installed on the USB port, it won't work on the parallel port. Do you have this printer installed 3 different times? Need more details such as how was it installed the first time? And if it's working on the other 2 ports, why does it have to work on the parallel?
