It shouldn't be a problem at all. Follow the setup CD that came with your printers. You may have to enable the parallel port through the BIOS Setup if it isn't already. Remember when you setup the 4280 that it will be connected to the LPT1 port.

Install the 4280 driver. Make this your Parallel connected printer. Then install the Samsung by clicking add printer, then when prompted for a port, click USB (USB001). After you load the drivers, just simply select which printer you want to send the document to. Once you successfully load the drivers, you will be prompted to print a test page. If you get a test page from both printers after loading the driver(s), you have installed them correctly.

My HP Printer no longer works on my laptop. What


you did not provided any useful information, what operating system you use, what printer, what connection (usb, paralel, network) and what laptop.

general advice only can be provided then.

if windows of any flavour, disconnect the printer, uninstall all software pertaining to this printer. use ccleaner and clean your harddrive including registry.

check printer on another computer if it works. if printer works correctly, problem is with your laptop, not with printer.

follow this procedure, install software, connect printer, switch printer on, windows will automaticaly install drivers and printer software

if this do not work, you need to check if port used for printer work with other hardware, ie, usb stick, check cable between printer and relevant port.

There might be a problem with your computer as well. Try printing with paralell cable to make sure the interface works at all. If the patalell-port works fine, try updating the printers firmware. Still problems ? Try with a different computer. If if works fine with another computer, then you know theres something wrong with your first computer. Good luck.

Try changing the LPT port mode in the BIOS- there should be like SPP, EPP, ECP. As I recall there are different drivers for USB and Parallel and I don't think Serial is supported. If you installed HP drivers, Uninstall and use the Windows drivers.

You are correct on your deduction.
It is the USB to Parrallel adpter. They are not reliable in the XP/Vista enviroment. I have run into this several times.

Connecting my HP ScanJet 5200C scanner to my HP Pavilion Home pc


Rookssailor,

I don't think you can (successfully) run this scanner off the paralell port. I'm drawing on memory here but I think this scanner has serial and usb ports. If you are running Windows XP, use the USB hookup. If you are running Windows 95, 98, Milliniaum then you might want to use the serial port. At any rate the scanner software should be installed before you plugin the scanner.

If I'm completely "full of it" and you really want to use a Paralell connection then you might want to use a paralell to USB adaptor (Belkin, perhaps others make one of these).
