Can I connect my HP laserjet 5p with a 25 pin connector to my laptop which only has USB connection


On the back of the printer where the cable connects is actually a 36 pin connector, the end going to the computer is the 25pin end. What you will need to do is get a USB to parallel cable, they run $15-25, this will have the USB plug on one end and the 36pin centronix printer connection on the other end. This cable will allow your printer to be connected to the laptop. Office Depot and Staples should have the cable you need, if not you can do a google search for it and order one online.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Want to connect to my computer

What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.

Need help to hook up IBM color flatbed scanner

Attach one end of a parallel port cable to the parallel (printer) port on your computer and the other end of the cable to the computer port on the rear of the scanner. If you have a printer connected to your computer, you must disconnect the printer cable from the computer before connecting the scanner cable.
If you have trouble attaching a cable connector to a port, be sure that you are connecting the correct end of the cable to the correct port.
IF. . . you want to use a printer WITH your scanner, attach one end of the printer cable to the printer port on the rear of the scanner and attach the other end of the cable to the printer.
Plug in power cord and then power up PC.
Power on scanner. Install drivers. Restart PC to activate EZ Station buttons.

Mustek TwainScan 600 III EP Plus

Drivers are available from the mustek web site in US or Taiwan. See

You need an AC power adapter if you don't have one. The original was an YHI Power Adapter, model YC-1015-15, Input 100-120V, 60 Hz, 0.4A, Output +15VDC/1A. I know because I'm reading it off of mine (I am the original owner of one, this is about 10 years old). You can find new ones on eBay for $10 plus shipping.

Finally, you need a cable that connects the scanner to the PC using parallel port technology. Both ends are 25 pin Female, and the cable itself is marked as IEEE 1284 compliant. Cable is AWM E101344 Style 20276 30V VW-1 Space Shuttle. Must have 25 pin female connectors, check eBay or

Needing to hook up my scanner

You are going to need a 25 way cable a "Printer" type cable, A Male to Male, BUT with ALL 25 pins wired thru pin To Pin. This plugs straight into the "Printer" port. These machines often have a "Pass Through" port on them so ya can also connect to a Printer, however if ya printer is USB then it's NOT used. I found drivers below. driver/211491/ umax-scanner-astra-1220p- vistascan-3.55-parallelport-free-download.html
