If you have the Cables2GO USB to Parallel converter, it is a pain to get working.  Go to Radio Shack and buy the GigaWire USB to Parallel.
Then once plugged in, go the printer that will be using the converter.  Go to the printer properties, select the PORTS tab.  Select the 'VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR USB'.  That worked for me!

SOURCE: epson lx300+ii with serial port to fujitsu pc

use the com1, and use a baud rate like 9600, with 8 and 1 bit stop. dont. be sure that is in ESC/P or IBM as you requiered. if your software use directly the serial port, be sure that the bios set up is properly. i think that the lx300+ have less buffer than lx300+2
and if you use high speed, could loose info.

SOURCE: it is possible to convert the cable of lq-2180

No!

Are you trying to connect your printer to a PC using the USB port?

If so, it would be far better to purchase a USB to Parallel port cable.

The data passing over the USB cable will have to converted from a serial format to a parallel format before the printed can store the data,

Next, the converted has to add the required control signals in order for the printer to read and latch the data.

Hi

My friend we have LQ2180 in our office, there i a lever in the right side of the printer that indicates when you print your document. Adjust to upward to print the document from rear tractor and to print from the front push the lever downward. Maybe you accidentally, push down the lever.

Any problem, just message me. Regards.

Have you considered buying an ink jet printer? You will find your money will be well spent. Epson all-in-one printers can be bought for less than $100.00 when they are on sale.
