Put one page in printer and tape paper so it will not feed as buffer print out data on paper.
May take one minute or one hour, that depends on how many times you hit the enter on keyboard
You must let the printer keep printing no matter if it is one word or one letter. Some old printer do not have cancel on printer, only thru computer or program. I have three in serv. from the 70's
A buffer happen and will always happen after it get information from computer. It takes many sheet of paper

I had the same problem two years ago and purchased the adaptor also .The port is correct. My adaptor never would work either. The correct answer,for me, was to purchase a Parallel port PCI card and install it. I am still using it to this day as both the paper and the ink ribbon on my pin printer is a lot less expensive for making copies that I don't need to be letter perfect.

I assume you installed the driver that came with the cable. The driver should create a new printer port like lpt1. That's the port you should use in the printer configuration.

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.

I've got a Rico Aficio 2035
1.) It does have a hard drive installed (doc server)
2.) There is not a memory card installed
3.) There are no pinter buttons on the control panel
The rest of the scenario is the same...IE1284 Parallel port, but does nothing...
