I am simply making a copy and it is printing super slow.


hELLO IDEAL58ST,

While printing from the USB Port sometimes slow printout/data transfer will result in slow printing of print jobs. SOLUTION: Solution After the printer is installed on the USB Port, check the description under the Ports Tab what is selected. Please refer to the figure below : c00873625.jpg Using the USB/ Virtual Printer Port and DOT4/ HP Laserjet 2420, under the Port/Description Tab printer speed will be as per the standard. Whereas using the DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 under Port/Description Tab, Printer speed will be very slow. If DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 is selected by default, then you have to uninstall the USB driver from the Device manager and plug in the USB cable again. Then it will detect the printer and USB port with respect to the printer model.

THANKS.

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

Lexmark to HP problem


I've never successfully connected a Lexmark USB printer to a Parallel port with an adapter as the adapter doesn't provide bi-directional commP, use a USB powered hub, if the system doesn't have USB, try an USB expansion PCI card

HP Laserjet 2300 printing 5 copies


Friend,

There shouldn't be any need for a parallel-to-USB device, since your printer has both ports - and you could use ONE of the ports for printing. One, since two ports does NOT mean that the printer can serve two PCs simultaneously. On startup, it determines which port is active and "forgets" the other.

So I would have gone for either a parallel cable (IEEE 1284 standard, no longer than 10 feet) or a USB cable, running the cable directly from PC to printer.

If there's a need for several users to access this printer, I would either have shared it from my computer (where it's physically attached) to the other users in the network - or, purchased a jetDirect network card for the printer. With a JetDirect card the printer is accessible for all users over the network regardless of which computer is switched on.

Hope this clarifies and gives an answer to your question.

Printing does not work on Xerox Workcenter XD125F


Does the printer show up when you unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in? Does it say New Hardware or Printer found?
Does it print from a parallel port or does your computer have one?
Unlikely the cable since I have used those on that product before.
If it will print from a computer parallel to parallel, I would suspect the cable obviously.
You can take the back off the printer and reseat the board, and connectors.
What happens when you popo the printer itself?
