Cannot print from command prompt - Epson U220D Windows 7 32-bit New parallel port with driver New centronix to parallel cable Epson driver APD_455dE (I was using Windows 7 64 bit with a...


The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.

The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.

The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
compromised.

Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Let us know.

Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.

Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.

To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:

net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes

where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.

For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER.
4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.

Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.

How to use HP Laserjet 2300 dn offline. This printer is a network printer


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
This printer can work very well via a standard printer cable directly connected to your computers LPT Terminal. Most of Microsoft's current Operating Systems already have the LaserJet J2300 drivers built in and will automatically install when connected.
To confirm your connection to go to your computers printer setup and ensure the driver is configured to print from LPT1 port and click on print a test page. (Start/Settings/Printers/LJ2300 - Right Click on properties then click on the tab for ports. The general tab should have a button to print test page)
The network card that comes with your printer (Jet Direct Card) will not be used with this method nor will the Ethernet cable be required.
Hope this helps helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.

How to change the density of the printer HP LaserJet 5p


I'm afraid this won't be of much help to the original poster, who asked the question a year ago, but anyway - others may be looking for this too, just like I did...

To change the print density, a simple command must be sent to the printer. This is done in two steps:
  1. Create a file, containing the command
  2. Send it to the printer ("copy" it to the printer, in a DOS shell)
The command is:
<ESC>%-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4
where <ESC> represents the "Escape" character (character code 27). There are several ways to generate the Escape character (which cannot be directly entered in a text editor): E.g. substitute the character with any other, save the command and then replace the first character with 0x1b using a hex editor.

Or:
  • Open a DOS window
  • Enter:
    copy con density.txt <Enter>
  • Hold the <Alt> key
  • type 27 on the numeric keypad
  • Release the <Alt> key - the Esc. char. is shown as ^[
  • Type the rest of the command (e.g. %-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4) - adjust the density value to the one you actually want to set.
  • press <Enter> <ctrl-Z> <Enter> to write the file
When you have successfully created the command file, send it to the printer. In the DOS window, enter:
copy density.txt LPT1
(assuming that your printer is connected to LPT1)

That's it!
To verify that the density has actually been set, print a printer status page.
The printer remembers this setting, so this needs to be done only once.

Need help installing the firmware for an HP LJ p3005n. I have the download, and the printer is locally connected *USB*


David,

As per the instructions from HP for windows systems:

If the device is shared on the network, then the following command can be issued from a command prompt: copy /b FILENAME \\SHARENAME\PRINTERNAME
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file,SHARENAME is the name of the machine, from which the printer is being shared, and PRINTERNAME is the printer's share name.
If the device is attached locally, then the .RFU file can be sent directly to the printer with a COPY command from a command prompt or DOS window:
copy /b FILENAME PORTNAME
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file and PORTNAME is the name of the appropriate device port (such as LPT1).
The following can be set on the computer to help address a timeout message that may occur during an update:
From a command prompt or DOS window type the following command and press the enter key:
Mode lpt1:,,p
If the device is attached to a parallel port other than LPT1, then substitute the proper LPT port number in the MODE command. Once this command has been set the file can then be copied to the printer with the above mentioned COPY command.
NOTE: When the upgrade process has completed the LaserJet will reboot. Once the printer is back online, print a Configuration Page and verify that the new firmware has been installed.

Network Configuration page
NOTE The Network Configuration page is only available on the HP LaserJet p2015n,
HP LaserJet p215tn, and HP LaserJet p215nw printers.
A Network Configuration page prints whenever a printer configuration page is printed. You
can also print a Network Configuration page by pressing the network Reset button at the
back of the printer
The Network Configuration page provides information about the network configuration,
including the IP address, firmware revision, network statistics, protocol information, and so
on. The Network Configuration page automatically prints when you print a configuration
page from the control panel.
ENWW Printer information pages 37
Using the HP Toolbox
The HP Toolbox is a Web-based program that you can use for the following tasks:
● Check the printer status.
● Configure the printer settings.
● View troubleshooting information.
● View online documentation.
You can view the HP Toolbox when the printer is directly connected to your computer or
when you are using a supported network connection. You must have performed a complete
software installation to use the HP Toolbox.
NOTE You do not have to have Internet access to open and use the HP Toolbox. However, if you
click a link in the Other Links area, you must have Internet access in order to go to the site
associated with the link. See Other links for more information.
To install the HP Toolbox, you must install the TCP/IP protocol and the most recent version
of the Java™ Virtual Machine on the computer. You must also install the DOT4 protocol for
all USB connections, LPT connections for Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and LPT1
connections for Windows 98 S.E., Windows Me, and Windows NT 4.0. See the system
administrator or computer manufacturer's documentation for more information about
installing the TCP/IP protocol and the DOT4 protocol.
