To answer the question, I need to k**w if your DOS session is running inside Windows. As this is the most likely scenario, I'll answer assuming that - the answer will be different for DOS only systems.

Has the faulty LPT1 port has actually been removed? If it has, why **t just alter the port number of LPT3 back to LPT1 ? This can be done with jumpers on an old style card, or from device manager inside Windows if plug and play. If **t, you can try the following:

1: If the printer is already installed in Windows on LPT3, skip to step 3:
2: Install the printer in Windows. If you don't have a suitable driver for it, you can use Generic/Text only driver.
3: Right click on the printer, go to sharing, and make the printer shareable. Use a share name of 11 or less characters and ** spaces - e.g. EPSONLX500
4: From the CMD prompt, type the command:

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\Sharename

e.g.

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\EPSONLX500

**te that you do **t need to replace %computername% with your exact computer name - the machine will do it for you.

Finally, for others reading this, you can also use this technique to print from DOS to most "intelligent" USB printers (Hi end Laser, Dot Matrix etc). It probably won't work with "dumb" GDI printers or All-in-ones where Windows has to do all the work. If the printer supports PCL or ESCP printing languages, you are probably going to be OK.

SOURCE: Unable to install Epson TM-U220B[U220 with UB-U02III usb interface] on Windows 7 AND XP!

Hi!

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit epsonexperts.com site for more info.

I have designed a software to print visitor badges on spot for conferences but i am unable to send the print command to my Brother QL-570 Label printer ..I am not able to generate a .prn file .. please...


Welcome to FixYa.

To generate a PRN file, you need to have the printer driver installed in your computer. You should be able to see the PRN option (in some cases, it is termed as 'save to file') in the printer dialog box.
In your own software, you have to use the printers driver as well to produce a PRN file as well.

Since you are also unable to send the print command to your printer, it seems that your printer driver is not present or might have been corrupted.

Download and install the driver for your printer from >>HERE

Thank you for using FixYa, have a great day.

HOW CAN I PRINT FOLDER CONTENTS SIMILLAR TO THE DOS CAOMMAND TREE > PRN


Go to start button. In the start menu click RUN and in the box that opens type "cmd"
In the CLI go to the directory of the folder whose content you want to print and type the following and press enter to create list.txt file first before printing.

dir /b /s /on >list.txt

This will give you a text file (list.txt) in the folder, that you
can manipulate, print etc. in a text editor or
word processor. In order to redirect the output
directly to your printer, instead of a text file, type:

dir /b /s /on >prn

Try using "Print directly to the printer" option. You will get this option by:

Zebra TLC2844 wont print at all


Try to make the self-test first:
Power OFF
Press "FEED" and keep it pressed and turn the power ON again.
Did it print?! if Yes... There must be a cable problem or port.
Is it USB? Serial? Parallel ?
Let's say it's Parallel, go to the command line and type:
"dir >lpt1"
without the quotes and assuming it's connected to 1st parallel port
did it print?!
on serial would be "dir >com1"
or, if it shows up in "Printers", pre-define it and just type: "dir >prn"
Still doesn't work!?
Try with a different cable, or other computer.
You can use it even without installing the drivers...

Printer Problem


two possibilities, if you are in possession of the motherboard drivers you will need to install them as windows xp will be using generic ones and may not be suitable for your board, also try installing in a different usb port. The other is that the drivers you are using will probably be win 2000 and in your case it wont work with XP, so go to your printer manufacturer web site and download and install XP drivers.
