Is called a "parallel cable". If you search the web you found thousands of place where you can buy this or even build your own cable

I need an adaptor to use withy musb port on labtop


Hi you need a 4pin connector however the manual does not state what type of 4pin cable. It would depend on the type of connector on the actual device.
If you could send me a photo of the actual port where the cable connects to the laptop. I may be able to help.

I have a Brother 5 in 1 Multifunction MFC-3240C and wondering where you plug the printer cable in to the machine? Could you please tell me where the printer port on the printer is located. Thank you very...


This printer connects via USB cable and not thru a parallel printer cable. The USB connector is actually inside the machine. Here is a small image of where the connector is and a link to the quick start guide.

Error code = 6A00 whats the problem


ou should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. (Refer to the illustration below to confirm the USB cable is in the proper orientation.) It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists. Note: Some printers have a type-A USB receptacle on the front to connect directly to a digital camera. The type-B receptacle, on the printer, will connect to the type-A receptacle on the computer with an A to B USB cable.
  1. Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, connect the USB cable directly into the computer.

  2. Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
    There shouldn't be any resistance when connecting the USB cable to the device. If the cable does not easily slide into the device's port, look at the end of the connector. The shape of the connector should match the port on the device.

    Note: All USB cables will have a USB icon on one side. The side of the cable where the icon is situated is different than the other three sides.

  1. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.

  2. Make sure the correct USB cable type is being used.

There wasn't a USB cord there. What cord shou8ld I buy?


Printer connection cables are not always included; this is something to watch for when purchasing new printers.

As an example, Lexmark sells a USB (2meter) cable for use with their printers. It has a Type A connector on one end (connects to computer) and a Type B connector on the other end (connects to printer).

See illustration here:

http://www.lexmarkshop.ca/product_info.php/info/p547_USB--2-Meter--Cable.html?XTCsid=8uf9jfg007037lui6nbrrvkko5

You should however be able to purchase a suitable cable at your local supplier; there are also on-line suppliers who are very reasonably priced.

Try to stay under 10 feet or 2 meters in length and ask for a cable with a Type A and and a Type B connector for use with an USB printer interface.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote.

I have the tew-652brp. What is the RJ-45 cable is that the one that came with the kit.


RJ-45 actually refers to the "telephone" type connector on the end of the cord, but it's just the Ethernet Cable that comes with the kit (better than the USB) Hope it helped.

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


Hello,

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.

By network cable, you mean CAT5 or CAT6 actual network cable, or did you mean USB cable? If you are connecting directly from your printer to your computer with network cable, it would need to be a cross over cable, not regular network cable. If you are using USB cable, here is a link to Samsung for your ML-1630W operating instructions. Reference page 3.2 for using USB with software CD.
