Both printer and 9 pin serial ports not working


What has changed? One solution is to go into BIOS when you first turn on your PC hit <del> key. Make sure the ports are enabled. The second solution is to make sure you didn't add a device with serial ports or something which is sharing the same IRQs, which is 3 4 and 7 traditionally (for COM1/2 and parallel port).

If you tried all this and it doesnt work, then somehow the chip on the motherboard which handles these (the UART chip) has broke, you need to replace the motherboard or buy a card with serial and parallel ports on it (this should be quite cheap, ie 10-20 dollars).

Computer says no contact with machine have tried everything


Youn don't say what Windows flavor you're using, or whether you have a serial port or not. I'm going to guess you have a laptop with Vista on it, and the laptop has no serial port for you to connect the 7570's cable.
You need to get either a serial to USB cable that works with the 7570 (read some of the posts in this section. There's at least two or three that do), or another device called a Port Replicator, that has the serial port as well as a parallel port for printing, and perhaps one or two USB ports.
In my case, I have two of the latter ones, the Targus PA090U and the PA075U, and both need no drivers with Vista and work OK. They simply get recognized when you plug them into a USB port and are available to you, except that in my case, the serial port always defaults to COM port 4.
The other reason why you may not be getting a connection may be found in your Machine Configuration, in PCD_WIN. In version 2.0, which is the one I have, go to the Machine menu option, and at the bottom, click on Configuration.
Here make sure the COM port is the correct number, and then set the speed to LOW. That works for me.
Good luck!

My older hi-pro box will not work with my serial to USB adapter. It keeps saying it cannot find it on com 1,2,3,4. In the device settings it says the hipro is on port 2 and the serial/USB bridge is on port...


I just set up a serial Hi-Pro box for one of my customers on their new laptop. According to Beltone, the only usb adapter that will work with the Hi-Pro (or at least the only one they have gotten to work) is a Belkin F5U409. I know some usb serial adapters don't use true serial communications if that makes any sense, so there isn't really a baud rate. They kind of just send out the communication in bursts...

In any case, ive only tried with the belkin adapter and that worked fine with no problems. The other point here is that your Hi-Pro and Adapter are on different com ports... This is odd, the hi-pro should be on the serial adpater's com port. Also the software i was using - Noah, with a beltone module for programming hearing aids.. only looked on com ports 1-3. The computer put the serial adapter on com 8 - which would not do. I checked for available com ports and saw that 2 was unused. I set the adapter to 2 and was able to set up the program normally.

I did this on Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit. The procedure for selecting the com port is the same on earlier versions of windows.

First, open device manager, open the list titled "Ports (COM and LPT)". You should see your serial adapter in there. Double click it. In the window that opens click the "ports" tab, and hit the button labeled "Advanced" In the window that opens there will be a drop down list to select a com port. Select the desired com port and hit ok. That should fix it.

Most newer computer do not have serial ports but there is such a thing as a USB to Serial converter that might work to load what you need to load. USB to Serial converters don't always work but they are worth a try
