You can buy a usb to parallel cable which will do the trick from any good electronics retailer or somewhere like ebay.

I have an older HP DeskJet 722C printer and an Acer Aspire 5050 3242 laptop. Is it possible to hook up this printer?


I would say, it quite possible. If, the printer is a USB connection then it is only the matter of assuring the drivers for the printer will work properly with the operating system. You may obtain the latest drivers here HP DeskJet 722C printer

If the Printer happens to use the outdated parallel port, I would suggest to use an adapter, you can review the ones currently available online here Parallel to USB printer cable

It is always possible to use old peripherals on newer machines, it is only the matter of researching the internet to rather any available adapters are on the market to maintain older printers.

I hope this is helpful!

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How can I use this printer with a laptop that does not have a parallel port?


Hello there, Im Nathan there are few things you can do.

Check if that printer has a usb cable or if it came with one if not then.

You can connect that printer to the laptop by looking for a parallel to usb adapter .

I have an old HP deskjet 3820 printer and a new HP pavilion desk top which has only USB I/O ports, no parallel ports. Therefore I need an adapter cable to connect my printer to my new PC. Does the adapter...


You can almost buy a new printer for the cost of the adapter you are talking about buying. They have all kinds of adapters: the kind that connects to the flat end of a USB or the square end. Parallel, male or female. Go to a computer store like best buy, they should be able to hook you up.

Hope this helps.

HP Deskjet 920c will not work with my Dell inspiron 1720 with windows vista. The wizard asks which port I want to use but only gives LPT 1,2 or 3. My computer only uses USB. What can I do?


If you really wanted to use it,you have to buy a USB to LPT port or parallel port cable. The other end of the cable is USB and the other end is LPT.

New Dell Inspiron connected to HP 820Cse printer. Won't print.


I've not worked with one of these cables before, but here's what I would do: Right-click on the printer icon and go to properties. You'll be looking for the tab that says "ports." Open that tab and see what port the computer thinks it's using for the printer. Chances it says it's using a parallel port, but it is in fact, using a USB port. I can't tell you which to choose without looking at what you see, but I think you might find one that makes reference to a USB port with a parallel connection of some type. Try clicking on that and see if your situation improves.

HP Laser Jet 1320n series


The HP LaserJet 1320 has a USB port and a Parallel port.

The HP LaserJet 1320n has a USB port and an Ethernet port.

USB-to-Parallel converter cables, like this one, are designed to attach a parallel device to a computer's USB port.

But you need to do the opposite (attach a USB device to a computer's parallel port). A USB-to-Parallel converter cable will not do this.

Well, first things first! Are you using the parallel port (the "wide connector" one) to connect or the USB(The small connector)? Get back to me with this info to continue troubleshooting! regards, babb
