Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p


I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

LaserJet IIIp will not print using USB to parallel cable via Vista


DOT4 USB Printing support must be installed and the printer setup on a USB port in the printer manager for this to work. The laserjet 3p driver provided by Microsoft does not natively support DOT4 USB printing, as USB was not even invented when that printer came out. You might be able to enable this support by using the HP Universal print Driver instead of the built in driver provided. You can get the universal driver here:

HP laserjet 4L parallel to usb vista Jumbled font on test page


You mentioned parallel usb. The HP4L only has parallel. Make sure you specify LPT1 as the port you want. Try reinstalling the driver. It should be in the list of drivers.

Recently, I purchased a HP Pavilion PC. After setting up the computer I found out that there is not a slot for my printer. My printer is an HP Lazer Jet 3200. Please let me know what I can to so that...


Christopher,

The LaserJet 3200 has 2 different available connections...a parallel cable connection and a USB connection. If you used the parallel connection previously, you will need to purchase a USB cable if your new computer doesn't have a parallel port.

The 2 different connections are shown beginning on page 31 of the user guide.

Here is a link to the user guide if you do not have it:

LaserJet 6L with Vista using Parallel to USB Cable


It can be done tested by Thoo personally 6L printer prints well on vista too
The printer end should be connected to 25 pin parallel cable, converted to the USB on the notebook end of the wiring
To solve your printing problems locate vista driver, since i have tested vista works fine on HP 6L printers
make sure you select the correct O/S and assign in to the USB virtual port 05

HP Laser Jet 1320n series


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.

Follow the link and get the correct driver and get installed

Also try with another USB cable, If you are using a long cable, just try with a short one.
