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.

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.

I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 cutting machine that has a parallel connection. I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Windows Vista OS. I have a USB to Parallel cable to connect the two. I have...


connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device


Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.
