I have connected the printer with a usb/parallel cable to port USB001. Initially it works fine but after some time of not using it it does not work anymore. The printjob comes in an error state. If I disconnect/connect the USB cable, it start to works again.
The USB connection is direct to the USB connector of the PC, not using the hub.

First try downloading the latest driver of your printer and your usb converter compatible for windows 7.
Second Checked your device manager if your printer and usb to parallel driver properly installed, it should be there. If not yet installed try using different usb port one at a time until the cable have been detected.
Third if you see already the printer port force to change it to USB001 or Com1, then try to print. regards,
There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB
Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install)
Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.
There might be a problem with your computer as well. Try printing with paralell cable to make sure the interface works at all. If the patalell-port works fine, try updating the printers firmware. Still problems ? Try with a different computer. If if works fine with another computer, then you know theres something wrong with your first computer. Good luck.
I have a similar situation. Trying to print from a HP LaserJet 4 using a parallel cable to USB. It will not recognize the printer. What is the installation setup or what is the trick to get it to print?
Power OFF both Printer AND Computer.
Boot up computer.
Insert the USB cable into a port.
WIN XP will recognize and install needed software.
Attached the USB cord to the printer.
Power up the Printer
Next configure the Printer . . . øStart > Settings > Printers and Faxes øRight-click on HP LaserJet 6L øProperties øPorts oFind “USB001Virtual printer port for USB" oSelect this, if not already done oApply
