I would guess that the printer is set to use the Serial Interface. I think this is the default interface setting on the 5040, hence the USB and parallel interface will be disabled.
You can change which interface is active from within the printer menu, once you have enabled the USB interface the PC should then detect the printer when you plug it in.

Details on entering the Menu on the 5040 can be found on the Dascom web site; http://dascom.firma.cc/support2/technical_notes/serial_matrix/5040/5040_tn004.htm

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.

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device


Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.
