Question about Canon S400 InkJet Printer
I have a canon s400 printer which normaly works without any problem, however recently when i try to print things a message comes up saying 'Error writting to LPT1: for the printer. A printer time out error has occured.' I have tried increasing the time out status as it suggests, up to 120seconds, however the same message still occurs!...any one have any suggestions?!, Many thanks, louby
LPT1 (line print terminal, set to IRQ5 on stand alone) , this is parallell cable. This means your printer cable was connected to your computer using this type of cable.
It is not recomended or advised to turn off the printer while in print stage . Try using a USB cable to connect your printer to the computer. You may also have to reinstall the printer drivers , as the registry may be now be corrupted.

Is your printer connected with a serial cable, if so, you may have to install the printer and software again, but if you are connected via usb and this is the given error then there is a connection fault as, you may already know that LPT1 is not a usb connection but serial cable.
