I just bought a new computer and the connections don't match up. what do i do? I have the Eltron LP 2443PSA Thanks, Mike

I beleive your printer only has a Parallel interface and your new pc does not. You will need a USB to Parallel cable.

Parallel Connection:

Is an HP 4550 USB cable available?

This printer uses,
Parallel = DB25
Wireless infrared and Ethernet 10/100BASE TX
check the link for clarification, and your printer connections, see if this is it.

Hope this helps

I'm not sure if I have the correct cord or if I have it pluged into the correct port.

It is either a usb "A" connector which is the squarish side of the usb cable and the flatter "B" connector is the side that goes into your computer's usb jack. Some printers, like yours also still use a parallel port which is a Centronics big, wide rectangular connector that connects to the printer side and the other end is a DB25 parallel connector than goes to the parallel DB25 printer jack on your computer. You must have at least one of those cables but you only use one or the other. The usb will be configured to a usb local printer port or the parallel will use the LPT1 port. will provide you with a quick install brochure with pictures for you to see. post back if you need more help!

My printer doesn't have the usb to connect it to the computer - what do i need to do?

If the printer does not have the square USB connector (USB B end), then it will have parallel. Parallel is a wide connector that plugs in to a DB25 connector on the back of your computer. These parallel port printer cables can still be picked up at just about any office supply or computer store.

What if your computer does not have the DB25 parallel port but the printer does? Well there are USB to Parallel Port adapters made specifically for this scenario. They can run $10 to $30 depending on where you go. I recomend for those. That will allow you to plug an older printer in to a newer machine.

If it's made for a mac only, there should be a small circular port about the same size as a PS/2 keyboard or mouse. That is to connect to the Mac serial bus. This is differant than the barrel connector or brick used to supply power to the printer.

Hope this helps.
