Question about Barebone Systems

3 Answers

I have a BJC-50 portable printer that has never been used, that I would like to attach and use with my new Toshiba Satellite P205 Series lap top. I have the Cannon I/F Cable BIFC-50, but I need an adaptor that allows this to be plugged into a USB port. The cable has a parallel interface plug that is to connect into the computer, but computers do not have parallel plugs anymore, just USB ports. Does such an adaptor exist? If so, where would I be able to purchase one? Please respond to me at my e-mail address: ForgetNotScot@SBCglobal.net Thanks !!

There is a print server called made by Troy called the Pocket Pro. It will allow you to plug into the parallel port with a Ethernet connection from your computer.
You set the computer to the IP address of the pocket pro, and it works like a network printer with that device.

If you spilled water all over your laptop and its loading but not displaying you have damaged at least the inverter board and probably more. If it is booting up and you think it is ok except no display, you can verify this by attaching an external monitor and see how if at all the laptop is performing

Connect x2580 Lexmark printer to toshiba laptop


Hello chuck01438 ,


  1. Remove the printer out of the box and connect the power cable to a power adapter.
  2. Install the drivers and necessary software. Enclosed with the printer package should be a driver CD-ROM for the printer. It might also contain some print enhancement software supplied by the manufacturer of the printer. Follow the instructions for software installation.
  3. Connect the square end of the USB cable to the printer and the rectangular end to your laptop.
  4. Turn the printer ON. Your laptop should find the newly attached hardware, and recognize it as printer.
  5. Open any document or picture and click on Print in File menu or click on a printer icon in the toolbar.

I've just put in all new inks and now ther is no comunication from my lap top to the printer. ive turned it off.. and the green light keeps flashing along with the orange intermittently,, Its driving to...


Hi,

I suspect that the reason that there is no communication between your laptop and printer is because the printer will not switch online. This is further confirmed by one of the flashing lights. This is a standard feature if the built-in diagnostics of most current printers tells it that something is wrong.

Since as you posted/described "I've just put in all new inks and now..." was when the problem started, pls verify:
1. the ink cartridges are seated properly at their assigned slots;
2. most ink cartridges when new have a sticker cover of some sort to protect the electronic/contact pins. Pls verify that they were removed;
3. the cover/panel doors are securely lock in place;
4. verify that the USB cable/connectors are attached;
5. you have installed the correct model of ink cartridges, they are original and not generic/replacements/refills;
6. all others are where they should be, paper in tray, slides extended and nothing out of the ordinary;

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back with the brand and model of your printer. it might be of further help if you can post your laptop's brand & model as well as the operating system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

BJC 1000 troubles


There might be a problem with Printer Spooling Service. If you are using Windows do the following:

1. Go to start.
2. Choose "Run" and type: services.msc.
3. Press the Enter/Return key on your keyboard.
4. A screen will pop up. Locate the "Print Spooler" service.
5. Doubleclick it, if it has stopped: click Start.
If it is already running, click, Stop, and then Start.
6. Try printing again.

Let me know if this helped you out, please rate.
