Question about HP LaserJet 4000 Printer
Back connection port is a female port connect. The opposite end of each cord is the 25 pin male connect. Need a splitter to put on my printer so I can connect both computers.....thus I need a splitter that has one female connect and then splits to two female connect ends.

buy the adaptor for this these ports are called lpt ports they make adapters to run down to size
they also make a lpt printer port switch this is connected easy connect from printer to switch one printer cord then buy 2 other printer cords to hook to other computers
this is not a converter this is a switch
the printer cords can either be made on spot at most computer store or bought from fry's electronics they always have these in stock the proper lines your looking for

SOURCE: want to connect to my computer
you will need to use the parallel printer port on your pc.
this is the default type of interface built into the hp printer.
it will be a 25 pin female connector probably built onto the motherboard.
a standard parallel cable is whats required.
25 pin male plug on one end and a 36 pin male "D" style connector on the other.
25 pin mates with pc 36 pin mates with printer, all newer versions of windows
have the hp lj 4 driver supplied on the install disk.
ps if your system does'nt have a parallel port you can install an aftermarket one,
but ill bet your 25 pin connector is a parallel port.
check it out thru windows.
----- START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > HARDWARE TAB >
DEVICE MANAGER > PORTS.
this will list the ser and par ports if any on your system.

HP has the worst customer support policies known to man. I have a faulty monitor that was 2 months past warranty. Found out that the capacitors on the power board were swollen. Also found out that many people had the same problem. Aside from my hp psc 500, which is a work horse for 10 years now, I would never buy a hp product again. When I called, they gave me the same line of BS. (buy another one) Told them why should I buy another product from you if you wont help me with my current problem.
Anyways, my solution for you would be to use or buy a cheap computer with xp and share that printer on your network. Good luck.

You have a parallel interface on the printer. It was commonly referred to as a Centronics 36 pin cable. Your computer probably doesn't have the interface to support it. The fix is to get a cable that will work from your computer to the printer. For this you will need a USB to Parallel (Centronics) cable.
It will be hard to go to a store and locate one but I know you can find them all day long on eBay for under $10.
Try searching for "USB to Parallel" cable and see what you come up with. If you're savvy on eBay, you might want to pick up some extra toner while your there as well. The part # for your printers toner is C3903A.
Nice black and white printer that should serve you well for quite a while. Not to great doing graphics but B&W it does rather well.
