My C87 Printer problems

Dear Guru's

(1) I have a C87 Printer that used to work on a parrallel port however a connection nut fell off the housing of the port so it was a bit wobblie.I tried to glue it with araldite but it didn't stick.

(2)So I put a USB port card into my computer (Pentium 3) My programs are WindowsXP.

(3)Under instruction I then changed the ports by clicking on to;-
Control Panel then
Printers then select
Epson C87 & right clicked then
clicked on Ports then
removed the tick from LPT1 to USB local port
then pressed apply

(4) Then I pressed the test page and it worked perfectly, then I got some printing done off a website and that worked well but when I wanted to print off an e- mail it wouldn't work and the same with my documents.

(5)Then I decided to re-install to happier times like two days before but the calanders didn't seem to give me a choice so I had to go back a couple of months
When I turn on the printer and click the print button my computer makes all the right windows and noises but nothing, it talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk
My name is Paul Drake and my e-mail is ekard@slingshot.co.nz

In view of the original poster's lack of interest and the long time since it was posted, I think we can call this one "Solved by Poster".

Epson TM 88II not working with Win XP SP2


Are you confident this is using a parallel interface?

The ones I used to work with used a 25pin to 9pin serial connection. The 25 pin connection on the printer is the same as a parrallel port on a PC, but if you think of a normal parallel lead the printer should use a 'centronics' connector to conform to this. I think you may need a 25pin to 9pin serial lead which aren't very common but plenty of people should still make them.

Lamp blinking


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Problem with sharp ar 5320 copier


Sounds like a bad earth or loose connection. Try using the parrallel port instead, or take the panel off and look for bad connection

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.
