There is a Parallel to Serial converter cable that you can use. You may find it on a computer store.

Need serial interface for this printer


The option of serial printing is not available in t 2240 printer . One thing you can do is to use serial to parallel converter through your PC/LAPTOP to printer. If you are using PC you can add a pci serial/parallel card also. For laptop there are usb to parallel converters available in the market. try the following link for it

Offline status


The most likely cause for this OFFLINE status on the PC is which interface is selected on the printer.
I think the printer defaults to Serial interface, so if you are using USB ensure you select the USB interface via the control panel on the printer, similarly if the connection is parallel ensure the parallel interface is selected.
If the connection is serial, ensure the cable is of the correct pin configuration and ensure the serial interface is set up correctly.

It is possible to convert the cable of lq-2180 from parallel to sb cable?


No!

Are you trying to connect your printer to a PC using the USB port?

If so, it would be far better to purchase a USB to Parallel port cable.

The data passing over the USB cable will have to converted from a serial format to a parallel format before the printed can store the data,

Next, the converted has to add the required control signals in order for the printer to read and latch the data.

USB to Parallel connection (Panasonic KX-P1121)


I would recommend buying a Printer parallel port connection (PCI to LTP1), install it into the system, and use the printer parallel cable.

Want to connect to my computer


What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.

No response from 105Se


if the data light comes on and nothing prints chances are that the serial settings are set improperly. all of my printers are 25 pin serial, not parallel. i don't have one in front of me but i believe the settings are 19200, 8, 1, none. hope this helps.

How to configure the Zebra S500 using a USB to Parallel adapter?


The Zebra Stripe S500 has a RS-232 SERIAL interface using a DB-25 connector . You'll need a USB to SERIAL converter, not parallel. Be sure that the baud rate and data/stop bits are set the same on the printer and interface converter. Generally speaking, use the fastest setting possible (19200 baud) unless you encounter problems.
