Not sure what the question is. IEEE 1284 is a parallel cable interface, standard on most computers up until Windows XP for sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1284. This interface was substantially replaced by USB. If you have an older printer with this interface you can still connect this to a newer computer without the parallel interface by installing an interface card (into a desktop computer) or connecting via a Parallel to USB adapter.

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.

Im looking for a printer caBLE FOR A HP PRINTER MODEL NUMBER PSC500 AND OPERATING DISC


You need a bi-directional, parallel, IEEE 1284-compliant printer cable with
1284-C connector. Here is an example from Tiger Direct:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=331719&CatId=76

You can download the software from Hp. Go here:

PSC500 Support

Select Software & Driver Downloads. On the next page select your opeating system.

Follow the directions. There is not a software download fro all OS. For instance, for XP you will use the XP OS to install drivers.

There are also links to manuals on the suppert page above.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Correct cable for printers


Many printers now require an IEEE 1284 and Bi-Directional. USB cables shouldn't be longer than 15 feet.

Connect printer to usb


I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. I have researched this matter for you, and then typed a fairly lengthy solution. For some reason, just before it was to be posted it disappeared. (We have to love these PC's, right?)

At any rate, the connector on the printer is known as a mini- or micro-concentric parallel connection; therefore, you will need an IEEE-1284 premium mini-concentric parallel cable. This reference is posted merely for you to see the particular cable, and should not be interpreted as an endorsement of any kind concerning the vendor. http://sewelldirect.com/ParallelCableMiniCentronics6Foot.asp. In order for the IEEE 1284 end of the cable to attach to a USB port, in this instance, would require an adaptor to convert the parallel to a USB connector of the proper type and size. In fact, given that I do not know the remaining specifics of your system, and so that you will gain familiarity with the various adaptors, I would suggest that you take a look at this page: http://sewelldirect.com/search.aspx?searchTerm=usb+parallel+adaptor.

Again, please do not construe my posting of this vendor's pages as an endorsement of any sort, as I have had no experience with them whatsoever. The references are posted here simply for your review.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
