Question about Canon LBP 800 Laser Printer

1 Answer

WinXP doesn't accept the driver when connected thru a USB-Parallel Port Connector

Exact same problem as Kim1 with LBP800 (the error message is: The printer is connected to a port of an unsupported type) but it works fine with another printer of mine (Panasonic KX-P1121). I even tried arunpandiyan's solution but it still doesn't work. Then again, I only tried uninstalling 1 of the USB port drivers there coz I don't think it makes any difference since there is no issue with the Panasonice printer.

Pleaseeeeeeee help....coz I don't think buying a new printer is the solution.

Thanks.

    I have a Canon LBP 80, and a parallel-usb cable. But when I installed the driver, and printed test page, a notification appeared like this: "The printer is connected to a port of an unsupported type.".

    Please help me !!!

    Thanks in advance

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

Trying to connect from USB laptop to parallel printer


You can't have a double hook up to it,When the parallel port is used the usb port is disabled and when you use the usb port the parallel port is disable.This is done to prevent damage to the printer.You can network the laptop with the pc and print that way though

I'm not sure if I have the correct cord or if I have it pluged into the correct port.


It is either a usb "A" connector which is the squarish side of the usb cable and the flatter "B" connector is the side that goes into your computer's usb jack. Some printers, like yours also still use a parallel port which is a Centronics big, wide rectangular connector that connects to the printer side and the other end is a DB25 parallel connector than goes to the parallel DB25 printer jack on your computer. You must have at least one of those cables but you only use one or the other. The usb will be configured to a usb local printer port or the parallel will use the LPT1 port. HP.com will provide you with a quick install brochure with pictures for you to see. post back if you need more help! Steve Medley

My printer doesn't have the usb to connect it to the computer - what do i need to do?


If the printer does not have the square USB connector (USB B end), then it will have parallel. Parallel is a wide connector that plugs in to a DB25 connector on the back of your computer. These parallel port printer cables can still be picked up at just about any office supply or computer store.

What if your computer does not have the DB25 parallel port but the printer does? Well there are USB to Parallel Port adapters made specifically for this scenario. They can run $10 to $30 depending on where you go. I recomend www.Geeks.com for those. That will allow you to plug an older printer in to a newer machine.

If it's made for a mac only, there should be a small circular port about the same size as a PS/2 keyboard or mouse. That is to connect to the Mac serial bus. This is differant than the barrel connector or brick used to supply power to the printer.

Hope this helps.
