There are USUALLY only 2 types of cable that have been used for printers.

Older printers used the Parallel Port to connect to the printer, this used the DB25M connector to the PC and the CN36M
(centronics) connector to the Printer. Information and pictures here

Most newer printers use USB cables. these are USB A to USB B cables.picture here

How to connect two desktops

You will need either a 9 pin serial cable or 25 pin. You need to reverse rx and tx ground them both alike and reverse rts and cts ( request to send and clear to send ) It's pretty easy and a product called a null modem will do it if your not handy with a pin puller. Some of the more fancy null modems have leds showing the flow of data. It's usually under $10. Null modems go on a straight RS232 cable of course. Staples may have it or office max.

Hello, We purchased one of your projectors and someone stole our cable for it. i would like to know what kind of replacement cable i would need to purchase. On the box it says. PJD5122 i dont know if that...


The cable you need for your projector is a common D-sub 15 pin to D-sub 15 pin VGA cable.
It is the same kind of cable used between a PC and a LCD Monitor, with the same type of connector on both ends: VGA D-SUB with 15 pins. (so you can use one of those monitor cables)

Please let me know if it helped.

Best regards!

First you'll need to make sure your system has a COM (serial) port. Looks for a port on the pC that has 9 pins (5 on top, 4 on bottom). Get a Null modem DB25-DB9 cable and connect the printer to the PC. That'll take care of the hardware connection. Youll need to know what kind of driver you want to use. POS printers like the Samsung SRP printers either has a windows or OPOS driver. You should have a software you intend to use to print to the printer, so check with the software vendor what kind of driver you need to print. Install that driver, make sure the baud rate on the printer and the driver is matched and your good to go.

Not able to exclude hidden items from the total

The solution to your question can probably only be resolved by the developers at SAP modifying how their software functions. Sometimes the answer is not what seems expedient because that could take months or years to have solved. I suggest posing this to them because your error exactly matches what you see as the issue.
