I've installed the AL-1540CS but I'm having trouble figuring out how to scan documents and load them onto the computer with the Parallel interface. Can you help me out?


Scanning is not possible thru the parallel port. You must use the USB1.1 port in order to use the scanning feature.
The parallel port is only used for printing.
If you hook up the machine with a USB cable you can print and scan using USB. This includes color scanning.
Thank You for using Fixya.

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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

If you're running XP, you don't need an installation CD. I have that printer/scanner/copier and XP includes the driver. As well you can use XP's All Programs, Accessories, Scanner and Camera Wizard to scan. Unless your laptop has a parallel port or you have a Docking Station or Port Replicator, you'll need a Parallel to USB Adapter (see http://www.usb-ware.com/expresscard-parallel-port-sy-expc34-1p.htm). The cable my printer came with is part number C6680-80003 (see http://www.partshere.com/online/detail.asp?partno=C6680-80003). Hope this helps.

The HP LaserJet 1320 has a USB port and a Parallel port.

The HP LaserJet 1320n has a USB port and an Ethernet port.

USB-to-Parallel converter cables, like this one, are designed to attach a parallel device to a computer's USB port.

But you need to do the opposite (attach a USB device to a computer's parallel port). A USB-to-Parallel converter cable will not do this.
