Its not the main board just an incorrect driver being used. Always use the driver for the exact model from the manufacturers web site.

The only thing that coould cause it to malfunction like this is a defective main board. Replacing the machine would be recommended as the board is rather expensive.

ebay has quite a few under $100

Sir, i am learning embedded programming, i want to dump the program in the micro-controller through parallel port but there is no parallel port in my system. 1) if i buy usb to parallel port is it work as...


It would be better to use the USB to do this since Parallel ports are almost obsolete in today's computers. If you have an open expansion port you could put a parallel port card in the computer no problem but why would you want to? I would have to have a much better understanding of what you where trying to do to give you any other advice about Parallel vs USB vs FireWire. I have seen app's that use the serial port and parallel port as you are mentioning but these are tools for doing dead PC diagnostics and even most of those use the serial port because of the improves Bidirectional abilities for data flow.

Printer does not recive docket when it is sent from the servery, it's all jibberish! With numbers and letters just being printed out. Please help!


Most likely, you are using the printer's serial (rs-232) interface and your baud parameters on the printer and the computer are mis-matched. Print a test page by turning off the printer, holding the feed button down WHILE re-powering the printer. This will print all current parameters for the printer and it's interfaces. In the device manager, locate the icon for Ports (com LPT). Double click the icon and locate the com port your printer is connected to. Double click this com port to reveal the Properties. Under the port settings tab, match the port parameters to the ones on your test print. If that doesn't get it, you most likely are not using the serial port and have an incorrect driver loaded. Good Luck

Okidata 320 turbo microline prints jibberish


sounds like a job was sent to the printer with the wrong driver. There is no way to purge it just load some paper and let it run until it stops. They make sure your emulation matches the driver youa are using. Example Epson 9pin compatiable or OKI ML320 Turbo-IBM drive you want the emulation set to Epson FX. Or if using the OKI ML320 Drive you want the emulation set to ML.

How do i install 2 different printers


Install the 4280 driver. Make this your Parallel connected printer. Then install the Samsung by clicking add printer, then when prompted for a port, click USB (USB001). After you load the drivers, just simply select which printer you want to send the document to. Once you successfully load the drivers, you will be prompted to print a test page. If you get a test page from both printers after loading the driver(s), you have installed them correctly.

erform the following checks on the bi-directional communication:

1. Temporarily unplug the power cord and then plug it back into the wall outlet. If necessary, turn the printer back on. The printer should make a resetting sound.
2. Make sure that the print cartridge has been installed correctly and the cover snapped into place.
3. Also make sure that the printer is directly connected to the USB port (or parallel port, where applicable) on the PC.
4. An IEEE-1284 bi-directional parallel printer cable is required (not applicable for USB).
5. If there is another peripheral device connected, remove it and connect the printer directly.
6. If the problem persists, continue as instructed below.

To prevent the drvwppqt.vxd virtual device driver from being loaded:

Warning! Do not implement this solution if you have a tape backup device connected to a parallel (LPT) port on your computer.

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files Or Folders.
2. In the Named box, type drvwppqt.vxd and then click Find Now.
3. Rename all instances of the file by changing the file name extension from .vxd to .old. This will prevent the driver from being loaded.
