Communication port is not working properly

COM1 and COM2 refer to a computer's communications, or serial, ports. COM1 ports are often used on older PCs to connect network devices, digital cameras and mice. Faulty drivers software that enables the hardware to communicate with the operating system or incorrect hardware configuration can influence COM1 behavior. In rare cases, the expansion card that adds the serial ports to the PC can fail, rendering both COM1 and COM2 ports useless. To repair a COM1 port, you must determine what is preventing the port from working before attempting a solution.

Click "Start." Go to "Control Panel" and then click "Hardware & Sound." Select "Device Manager" from the submenu. Expand "Ports (COM & LPT)." Double-click "COM1." Review Device Status on the General tab to check for problems with the software driver. If the message "The Device Is Working Properly" appears, click "OK" to close the window; otherwise, look up the error message on Microsoft Support. Follow the directions in the Knowledge Base to correct the issue. Press "Alt" and "V" to open View. Scroll to "Resources by Type." Press "Enter." Double-click "Interrupt Request (IRQ)" to see a list of devices. Double-click "Communications Port (COM1)." Check the term to the left of COM1 to see if the card uses an ISA or PCI interface. If the card uses a PCI interface, it can use the same IRQ as another PCI device without producing a hardware conflict. If the device is ISA, it needs its own IRQ. Go to the "Resources" tab. If "No Conflicts" appears in the Conflicting Device List, close the window; otherwise, uncheck "Use Automatic Settings." Click the drop-down menu and select each configuration until the port no longer interferes with another device. If conflicts occur with each configuration, double-click "IRQ"; you may need to try different configurations before Windows gives you permission to edit the interrupt request. Click the up or down arrow to change the IRQ until the message "No Devices Are Conflicting" appears in the Conflict Information field. Click "OK" to close each window. Click "Yes" when prompted. Connect a device to the COM1 port to test the port. If the device doesn't respond, shut down the computer and then unplug the power cable. Disconnect all devices from the back of the PC. Remove the case cover and touch the computer's chassis. Set the computer on its side so that the PCI and ISA cards sit at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Find the serial ports on the back of the PC. Look on the opposite side of the case to find the associated card. Shine a flashlight onto the card and make sure that the copper contacts are not visible. If you can see the contacts, reseat the card in its slot so that it's fully installed to the motherboard. Reassemble the case and boot into Windows to test the COM1 port. If the port still fails to work, you may need to replace the serial port card.

I have the same printer, and xp on my pc, but how do i connect them? my laptop does not have a serial conection. i tried to use a usb/serial converter and i installed the xp driver from minolta website,...

You need to make sure you have selected the correct COM port whin you try to print. Depending on the type of USB to serial converter, the COM port it assigns can change just by moving it to another USB port. Right-click on My Computer and select MANAGE. Select Device Manager from the list. Click on the (+) next to PORTS and double-click on your USB-SERIAL device COM port. Somewhere in the Properties window you should be able to see the assigned COM port (COM1, COM2, etc.). If possible, set the COM port to COM1 or COM2 for greatest compatibility with older software. Then when you print, make sure your printer driver is also set to the same COM port.

Have you tried other USB ports on your computer?

Get yourself a powered USB hub and try that, borrow one if possible, if that works get one for yourself....

Setting up two printers on the same pc

You need to manually setup the serial printer, as it probably isn't getting detected via plug n play:
  • Go to Start Menu\Printers & Faxes
  • Click on the 'File' menu and choose 'Add Printer'
  • Click next at the wizard, then select 'Local printer attached to this computer' and leave the 'Detect Plug n Play...' box unchecked, click 'Next'
  • Choose the correct serial port (either COM1, COM2, etc), click 'Next'.
  • Choose the correct printer manufacturer & model to install the correct driver, click 'Next'.
  • Print a test page, just to make sure it's working

SigLite 1x5 Model:T-S460-B (with serial connector)

The problem was not the topaz pad but my laptop. I removed all software which needs the serial port and I finished all not necessary programs which were running in the back but the problem was still alive. Now I asked my administrator for more rights and I changed the name of the port from port "1" to port "3" (port "2" doesn't work). I've got the message "port 3 is already in use" but the pc accepted the exchange of the name. Afterwards I changed the portnumber in the ini.file of the Topaz Software and now it works without any problems... strange, strange.... my five colleagues who are using the same pad on the same type of laptop (Compaq nc 6120) haven't got any problems during installation of the pad.
Thanks for your interest - kind: regards Ben Gun
