Question about Panasonic DP-1810P Laser Printer

1 Answer

Scanner operation Connecting a DP-1810P to a computer through a parallel-pci port. Cannot get bidirectional communication. Tried different settings with no success. Am able to print when the bidirectional setting is not selected; however, when the bidirectional setting is set , the printer shows offline status. The Status Monitor produces message that connection does not exist. Is there some settings on the LPT port that will resolve the bidirectional communication with the printer? Thanks

You will need at least a USB connection for bidirectional support.

My computer cannot detect my scanner. Error Code: 0x0070800


The FB320P is a parallel port scanner and is having problems communicating with the computer. Are you connecting it directly to the parallel port on the computer? In that case, you may not have bi-directional communication enabled. Turn off the scanner and the computer and disconnect the data cable from the computer. Turn on the computer and enter the BIOS. (Press Esc, F1, F10, or Del repeatedly after you turn the computer. You should see a screen with the correct key to press; it varies depending on your BIOS and motherboard. If you miss the timing, shut down the computer and try again.) In the BIOS, search for the parallel port settings and see if you can enable bi-directional communication.

Not all parallel ports support bi-directional communication. If you can't enable the feature, you need a different parallel port. Try a PCI slot add-on card; just check the features and check the manual for enabling bi-directional communication.

If you are using a USB to parallel port adapter, get a different one that supports the bi-directional communication.

What OS are you using? There are a few that had ASPI driver issues; a third party app, ForceASPI, may help. See http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cd_dvd/dvd_tools/frcaspi.cfm for information.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about the configuration (cable, OS, etc) for extra ideas to solve the problem.

It would be better to use the USB to do this since Parallel ports are almost obsolete in today's computers. If you have an open expansion port you could put a parallel port card in the computer no problem but why would you want to? I would have to have a much better understanding of what you where trying to do to give you any other advice about Parallel vs USB vs FireWire. I have seen app's that use the serial port and parallel port as you are mentioning but these are tools for doing dead PC diagnostics and even most of those use the serial port because of the improves Bidirectional abilities for data flow.

Turn on enable bidirectional


  1. In Control Panel, click Printers.
  2. Right-click the bidirectional printer, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Ports tab, click Enable bidirectional support, and then click OK.

    Also if parallel port, this is also set in BIOS, under LPT port settings.

Ok, I presume you are using a parallel printer, what you have to do, is go into the BIOS, SETUP, and find the Printer Port, LPT1, and set the port to bi-directional, or SPP, now save, and reboot. Now reinstall again, and it should work. ( It may just work anyway, after reboot, that may be worth a try first)

Lexmark 3500-4500, enable bidirection printer


Bi-directional operation is a facility of the BIOS port you might use. it usually refers to a parallel port which can be set in the bios as uni directional or bidirectional so in the bios under PERIPHERAL DEVICES you would set to bi-directional.. so it is not something you can set in the printer settings. when it connects to the port the printer tests to see if it can use bidirectional transfers or not. If it can't it just means its a bit less efficient so will take long to transfer data. A similar error message might be issued for a network/wifi connection if a FIREWALL prevented communications. Or if you had used an OLD driver meant for a different older parallel printer. your printer is too new and should be wifi connected. You may have used a wifi ad-hoc pc-printer direct connection which could be causing the issue. preferred method is always printer-router-pc non ad-hoc using tcp/ip ports. so check your firewall settings http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=SO3908&locale=en&userlocale=EN_US

Try changing the LPT port mode in the BIOS- there should be like SPP, EPP, ECP. As I recall there are different drivers for USB and Parallel and I don't think Serial is supported. If you installed HP drivers, Uninstall and use the Windows drivers.

What does disabling bidirectional support mean


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} USB to Parallel conversion requires translation by XP and Vista's 'hardware interleave' software as well as the USB device manufacturers driver. The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.

DP-1810P USB


sir/mam, there is no usb port on all 1810p and also the usb to parallel cable is not working with these machines.
what you can do as an option is to find a parallel print server, or you may connet the copier to the router with a builtin parallel print server

Wrong Port when printing


assuming you mean you are connecting to two separate parallel ports, then your bios settings may have not been set correctly(duplex operation - bidirectional data allowed) or your ports may have been moved by other added hardware, ie your bios may be poor at doing that especially if the parallel ports are on add in card. but since you gave us none of that information, i would try uninstalling both then just add the 1200 first on the first(other) LPT. see what it manages on the one that works on its own. if its ok which it should be then try adding the 1500 after see what happens to both then.
