Some of the credit card printer supliers sell a cable that you need. I don't know the exact pin out myself.

What is the 6 pin din socket on a brother m4309 printer for? is it a Commodore serial port?


This printer is so old there is no technical info online for it.
The DIN connector is probably for the power supply.

I'm trying to figure out how to connect my Datamax Prodigy Plus Thermal printer to my PC. I have a 25 pin connector on the Printer labeled J2. Also a round plug-in labeled J4. My computer has the same...


If the cable works on the Zebra it should work on the Datamax. It must be a RS232 serial null modem cable.Check the serial port settings and make sure the printer setting match the PC serial port settings. Baud Rate=________? Data Bits=________? Parity=_______?Stop Bits=________? Handshaking=____________?

The typical settings are Baud 9600,8,n,1 Xon/Xoff.
Also make sure of the comm port being used. com1,com2......etc

I have the same printer, and xp on my pc, but how do i connect them? my laptop does not have a serial conection. i tried to use a usb/serial converter and i installed the xp driver from minolta website,...


You need to make sure you have selected the correct COM port whin you try to print. Depending on the type of USB to serial converter, the COM port it assigns can change just by moving it to another USB port. Right-click on My Computer and select MANAGE. Select Device Manager from the list. Click on the (+) next to PORTS and double-click on your USB-SERIAL device COM port. Somewhere in the Properties window you should be able to see the assigned COM port (COM1, COM2, etc.). If possible, set the COM port to COM1 or COM2 for greatest compatibility with older software. Then when you print, make sure your printer driver is also set to the same COM port.

Kids gave me a printer/scanner Epson model number c171a. Need the cable to it. AN oldie but looks like a pretty nice printer. Can you help??


The cable you need depends on the unit. I am not aware of a C171a model from Epson. I have seen it listed as a version of the RX500. In that case you need a USB cable with A/B male ends.

Otherwise, most printers (from about 1997 on) will use a USB cable. This has two male ends - a square end goes into the printer and a rectangular end that goes to the computer (called A/B). For older printers (there may be multiple ports or just one), you may see a parallel port (the cable has a wide rectangular plug on both sides with 36 pins) or serial port (the cable may have DB9 (9 pin), DB25 (25 pin) or both). Often it is called a RS-232 port. For a parallel port connection, you would need one that is designed for scanners and bi-directional communication (USB to parallel adapters are available to connect this to a new computer but you still need the bi-directional version). Similarly, USB to serial adapters are available.

Generally you can tell what cable you need by looking at the back of the unit where the ports are. (Although some all-in ones have the USB cables in other places - routed through the side of the unit but the plug is near where the ink cartridges go.) Then the size and pin counts for parallel or serial tell you what cable to get. There is usually a symbol indicating the cable type as well near each port. USB cables are usually indicated by a tree like symbol with curved branches.


I hope this helps.

Trying to connect a lap top to the 450C designjet but don't have the proper connection to hook up


I believe this plotter has both the old centronics and a 25 pin serial connection. Your laptop MAY have a 7 pin serial connection which you can get a 7 pin to 25 pin serial cable. If your laptop does not have a serial port, you MIGHT find a USB to serial adapter cable.

Make sure you are not on Vista or Win 7 operating systems as they likely do NOT have compatible drivers for this plotter.

Zebra 105SE 25 pin serial cable


error can be on the pc.side or the printer's:

check

- if in windows the LPT ports are addressed properly (if u got a many usb ports, then windows adresses these first and skips the older lpt's- same applies when using an external usb-hub/splitter!)

- that there are no dma or irq conflicts
(see device manager)
- if the right driver is installed, if it suits the windows version u are using/has been written for it

- doublecheck printer against another printer
on your pc using same port

- and/or try to connect it to another pc

so u make sure on which side the error ocurs!

least: check the cable itself

Re Printer error


You have to set this online connection type from the SETUP-ONLINE-ConnectionType and set this to SERIAL if you are using a serial cable. Hope you have selected the port to the correct serial port or you have run the Port detection utility with the printer connected and switched ON while setting up the driver.

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.

Trying to setup a Zebra TLP 2844-Z on serial port


Two possibilities are the port configuration and the type of serial cable.

The printer has a feature that will try to match itself to the PC's configuration. Press and hold the feed button until the green status led flashes three times. While the led flashes send a ZPL format to the printer (hopefully you can do this through Design Pro by trying to adjust the printer or print labels, but the labels will not print). When the printer and PC are synchonized, the led changes to solid green.

If you can synchonize but still can't print, the problem might be the serial cable; not all serial cables will work. You should use a full null model cable (all pins connected except 1 and 8).

Epson TM-U325D Serial Printer - No Print Activity


make sure you have the printer added in the printers window of the control panel. Epson Expert
suggests adding the printer as "generic". Mine is USB, so I have to run their COMUSB program.
Right now I am having a problem printing receipts. It seems the text is too wide for the line.
