There should have been some software that came with the cable. This is a utility that has to run on the system to enable the printer to communicate across the USB to paralell jump.

C1110B print not clear

If you have not yet solved this issue , advise if you are on a paralell cable or usb cable connection? If it is a paralell connection pull the cable out and check for a bent pin, if affirmative straighten it out with small thin head pliers. If usb check that the correct driver has been loaded on the virtual usb port. Good Luck Ed Pinero

The media is in correctly and is being fed correctly but when we sent a label from our computer to the zebra printer it will not print the information on the media. Was fine a few days ago.

send a test print from the driver.
check the connection configuration.
if connect with serial port (check seting from the port (THE SPEED HAVE TO BE THE SAME)
if connect with USB, if necessery, install the driver again and test.
if necessery flash the firmware and test (worst case scenario)
if can't comunicate and if using paralel port:
check if the fuse next to the paralel port is burn ( on the logic board.). replace it.
dont forget to unplug the power cable and the comunication cable.

Cable connectivity with my laptop through a "parallel to usb cable". My laptop has no parallel port but only usb ports.

make sure you follow this step :
1. install driver USB to Paralel port (LPT1) before the cable connected to PC
2. After the driver installed, install the cable - and it supposed to be detected
3. the last think u have to do is install the scanner/printer driver

if it is not work, i guess the problem is on the USB to paralel adapter, or the driver not installed correctly

It will not work with any drivers if you do not have a parallel port. You can get a pci card that has parallel port on it for use with the zebra z4m.
below is a link for the card that cost only $9.99

You need to create an account here to find your drivers:

And use that to find your drivers. Don't look through the main Epson site -- your printer's in a different category, for point of sale.

You are correct on your deduction.
It is the USB to Parrallel adpter. They are not reliable in the XP/Vista enviroment. I have run into this several times.

Sister, has given me her old HP Deskjet 690C printer but I do not know how to fix a port onto my Higrade notebook (Windows Vista)

If it's because your laptop does'nt have a paralell port you can use a Paralell to USB adapter cable.
Have a look on EBay.

Won't scan

Hi there, this problem was posted over a year ago so I boubt you will check this but the best help I ever get is from discussion boards so I think its time to return the favor. I spent 3 hours on this one and finaly figured it out. After following all the steps on you need to fully uninstall all brother drivers and reinstall the correct drivers based specifically on your model. In this case mfc 8500. I did this and even went as far as downloading (from above website) the official uninstall tool. I then tried it again and still my driver install would bug at the "click next when connected" But when i connect my printer it doenst let me click next.

Anyways for me the answer to my problem lay in the simple answer of the usb cable i was using. I had a labtop connected to a USB connector conected to a paralell port adapter connected to the printer. I had a theory that the parallel port and usb werent communicating. Keep in mind that the before all this the printer worked fine but the scanner and email fax did not. I then diconected the paralell port from the printer and found a usb entry (weird shape not sure of the term) at the back of the printer. Looked through my cables and sure enough had the usb/weird shape usb cable. Once i connected that to the labtop like a flash everything worked. This was grueling but i hate to admit defeat to computer problems. if you read this..i hope it helps.

Get official uninstall
decompress and use it.
restart. (will not work if you dont)
Get updated driver and software package
decompress and use it
Only Connect Usb to labtop now
Only now Turn printer/plug in printer now
Complete instalation
