Usb to serial. will it work with a compaq laptop and an hp 6l printer?


Hello,

I think you mean usb to parallel....and the answer is maybe.

Usb to parallel adapters don't always work with all printers. Buy one from a store that will let you return it if it doesn't work. Make sure you install the drivers for the adapter as per the instructions that come with it.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Joe

I bought a Laseret 6L and a usb adaptor cord to replace the parellel port connection on the computer end. I've tried every suggestion regarding ports, but nothing works. The test page prints OK, but...


I've heard there is special software needed to do the USB to parallel conversion. We have a customer using a LJ 1000 with this hook up and there is supposed to be a driver/conversion software that handles the issue. Here is a good discussion that may have some solutions for you.

The USB ports on my Toshiba A135 S2356 laptop are not working. I tried to use my printer and it says not connected. I bought a new cord but it still doesn't work. What should I do?


1. first check ur USB port using any other USB device, like pen drive, mouse, keyboard,etc.
if system detects that device, then ur USB port is OK!

2. if USB is OK, then the problem is with the 'Printer Driver' not the cord!

3. reinstall the printer driver!

4. update the driver!

5. if USB port is not working, then replace it!

if this helps, tell me.......

LaserJet 6L with Vista using Parallel to USB Cable


It can be done tested by Thoo personally 6L printer prints well on vista too
The printer end should be connected to 25 pin parallel cable, converted to the USB on the notebook end of the wiring
To solve your printing problems locate vista driver, since i have tested vista works fine on HP 6L printers
make sure you select the correct O/S and assign in to the USB virtual port 05

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

Officejet G85 printer


If you previously were using a parallel connection for the G85 you will need a USB cable.

If your laptop is running Vista the G85 will work as a printer, I do not think there is a scanner driver for Vista for the G85. The G85 print driver is built into VIsta, you only need to turn on the printer and install the USB to have the printer automatically installed.
