Question about Xerox WorkCentre XD125F All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printing does not work on Xerox Workcenter XD125F

I purchased a USB to IEEE 1284 Parallel Printer cable part # cbusxpusbpr2 from xPCgear.com and installed the Xerox recommended XD_XPenu driver on my Dell Inspiron E1705. Everything appears to be correct, but it will not print. I tried the alternative XLXP_enu driver also, but still no printing.What's wrong here?

Does the printer show up when you unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in? Does it say New Hardware or Printer found?
Does it print from a parallel port or does your computer have one?
Unlikely the cable since I have used those on that product before.
If it will print from a computer parallel to parallel, I would suspect the cable obviously.
You can take the back off the printer and reseat the board, and connectors.
What happens when you popo the printer itself?

Panasonic IEEE 1284


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 just bought a new computer and the connections don't match up. what do i do? I have the Eltron LP 2443PSA Thanks, Mike


I beleive your printer only has a Parallel interface and your new pc does not. You will need a USB to Parallel cable.

What kind of cable is needed to connect a Fargo DTC 520 to a computer?


The cable you need for that printer is a Parallel IEEE1284 Compatible Bi-directional printer cable. It is the regular printer cable everyone used before all the printers went USB. If you dont have a parallel port on your computer, the link below is to USB Parallel adapters that you should be able to use with this printer.

USB Parallel Adapters from Tigerdirect.com


I hope this answers your question. Have a great day!

I have a parallel port printer can i change it into USB printer?


Hi sudhi2008, the answer is yes you can. You need to purchase a parallel printer cable adapter. You can purchase one safely at Amazon.com at this link http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-16899-IEEE-1284-Parallel/dp/B000UX21PY/ref=pd_cp_e_1.

Be aware please, amazon offers a couple different versions at varying costs and of course you can find it on other retail sites as well just make sure its a site you feel safe doing business with.

Xerox Workcentre XD100 not printing


You need to use a IEEE-1284 Compliant parallel cable for this machine. A "changer" will not work, sorry.

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!

An 8400 prints with a USB or a cat 5 cable ( ethernet, regular internet cable). You can not print to a Phaser 8400 with a parallel cable. I really can't figure why you would get that message.You enter the network settgings and set an IP address, then configure your print driver to match.
There is no parallel port on a 8400.
