Question about IBM Color Scanner Flatbed Scanner
I was just given an older IBM scanner, but don't know how to hook it up. I know I need to plug into power, but there are two 25 pin cable outlets on back, one male and one female and faint pictures for each. Looks like a monitor above the male and a computer (maybe a printer?) above the female. Don't know why I would need to hook into a monitor, so will it work if I hook into the computer one (has the 25 pin female outlet) and then in to the computer, then install drivers, or ?????
Any help at all is appreciated. Much Thanks!
Attach one end of a parallel port cable to the parallel (printer) port on your computer and the other end of the cable to the computer port on the rear of the scanner. If you have a printer connected to your computer, you must disconnect the printer cable from the computer before connecting the scanner cable.
If you have trouble attaching a cable connector to a port, be sure that you are connecting the correct end of the cable to the correct port.
IF. . . you want to use a printer WITH your scanner, attach one end of the printer cable to the printer port on the rear of the scanner and attach the other end of the cable to the printer.
Plug in power cord and then power up PC.
Power on scanner. Install drivers. Restart PC to activate EZ Station buttons.
