Make sure the serial dip switch settings match your com port on the computer. You need a null modem cable or adapter.

My printer wont print out a letter i need. it says to check conections and make shure it is turned on but i tried it and it still wont work


You may have a problem with your communication connection.

1) Try plugging and unplugging your USB cord..
2) Go to "Control Panel/Printers".
3) Delete "Canon iP1800 series" printer.
4) Power ON printer, let computer detect printer.

If it will not detect and install the printer. There might be a problem with your USB cable.

Hope this helps.

Zebra 105SE 25 pin serial cable

error can be on the pc.side or the printer's:


- if in windows the LPT ports are addressed properly (if u got a many usb ports, then windows adresses these first and skips the older lpt's- same applies when using an external usb-hub/splitter!)

- that there are no dma or irq conflicts
(see device manager)
- if the right driver is installed, if it suits the windows version u are using/has been written for it

- doublecheck printer against another printer
on your pc using same port

- and/or try to connect it to another pc

so u make sure on which side the error ocurs!

least: check the cable itself

Can not reinstall printer

Try disconnecting the printer from the USB port and reinstalling the CD program. Don't connect the printer to the USB port till the program says to do so.

Hope this help. Bud

Zebra Z4MPlus doesnt communicate with PC


This machine has a parallel port. Try to print via parallel cable. If it works, consider staying with it. Serial ports are a pain to manage.
If you absolutely have to do it via rs232 though....
Question 1. Has it ever printed?
If yes, Go into Windows Printers and Faxes control and select the Zebra or whatever printer that you are using. Right click on it and you should get a menu that at the bottom say "Properties", select that, then you should get a new window with tabs at the top. You want the tab for "Ports". Select it and you will see all of the different output ports that you can direct your printing. RS232 is a COM port. So start at COM1, check it and try to print. If that doesn't work, go to COM2, etc.

Last resort, If you can't get control via the printer driver program, you will have to try redirecting the print manually (now you will understand why I said to stay with parallel output).
What you have to do is redirect your printing via the dos "mode" command.
Under "Start Menu" goto "Run" and put in "CMD" and click "OK".

This opens a black square window with a cursor blinking. Type in this:
mode com1:9600,n,8,1 (enter)

mode lpt2=com1 (enter)

Tell your program to use LPT2 if you can and see if it works.
By now a parallel cable instead of RS232 should be looking really good.
Good luck!
