I have two identical 4420 printers. suddenly one prints much slower than the other. What mechanism needs replacing? I don't have any manuals or anything


I think parallel port issues. Assuming your fastest printer connected to onboard parallel port. connect slow printer on pci2parallel port.

My computer cannot detect my scanner. Error Code: 0x0070800


The FB320P is a parallel port scanner and is having problems communicating with the computer. Are you connecting it directly to the parallel port on the computer? In that case, you may not have bi-directional communication enabled. Turn off the scanner and the computer and disconnect the data cable from the computer. Turn on the computer and enter the BIOS. (Press Esc, F1, F10, or Del repeatedly after you turn the computer. You should see a screen with the correct key to press; it varies depending on your BIOS and motherboard. If you miss the timing, shut down the computer and try again.) In the BIOS, search for the parallel port settings and see if you can enable bi-directional communication.

Not all parallel ports support bi-directional communication. If you can't enable the feature, you need a different parallel port. Try a PCI slot add-on card; just check the features and check the manual for enabling bi-directional communication.

If you are using a USB to parallel port adapter, get a different one that supports the bi-directional communication.

What OS are you using? There are a few that had ASPI driver issues; a third party app, ForceASPI, may help. See http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cd_dvd/dvd_tools/frcaspi.cfm for information.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about the configuration (cable, OS, etc) for extra ideas to solve the problem.

Sir, i am learning embedded programming, i want to dump the program in the micro-controller through parallel port but there is no parallel port in my system. 1) if i buy usb to parallel port is it work as...


It would be better to use the USB to do this since Parallel ports are almost obsolete in today's computers. If you have an open expansion port you could put a parallel port card in the computer no problem but why would you want to? I would have to have a much better understanding of what you where trying to do to give you any other advice about Parallel vs USB vs FireWire. I have seen app's that use the serial port and parallel port as you are mentioning but these are tools for doing dead PC diagnostics and even most of those use the serial port because of the improves Bidirectional abilities for data flow.

Sometimes when I'm printing, it will stop printing and show DATA PCL on the screen. I shut it off and back on and it prints garbage.....how can I fix this?? thank you


Try this if connected parallel:

This error may occur if you have a computer with an ECP port in Windows;
INCOMPATIBLE PARALLEL PORT PROTOCOL: During the PLUG n PLAY setup, Windows usually sets the parallel port driver for ECP mode if the computer's hardware port is set for ECP or, in some cases, ECP+EPP. Windows 95 will utilize data compression during ECP data transmission which can cause "garbled information" if the receiving device, such as a printer, is not ECP compatible.

SOLUTION:
Change the Windows Operating System's printer port driver (LPT.VXD) to the standard mode (non-ECP).
Windows XP:
1. Click on "Start", then "Control Panel.
2. Double click on "System:, and click on "Hardware", then click on "Device Manager"
3. Click on "Ports (COM & LPT)" section, and click on "ECP Port".
4. Click on "Driver", then "Update Driver"
5. Click "Install from List or Specific Location (Advanced)", click on "Next"
6. Select "Don't search - I will Choose Driver to Install", click "Next"
7. Select "Show Compatible Hardware"
8. Select "Standard Port" on the left window and "Printer Port" on the right window
9. Click on "Next" and Click on "Finish" and close all windows
10. Reboot/Restart your computer to ensure the changes are activated.

I want to know how the parallell port is configureg. baudrate. bitrate etc


The parallel port does not use bit or baud rate. These terms apply to not serial ports.

A complete description of the Parallel port operation is not possible in this forum, so I'll just highlight the differences.

First, serial transmits one bit at a time. Parallel means that all 8 bits in a byte are passed at one time. A parallel port can pass data at about 10K bytes (Standard) to greater than 1M characters per second depending on the configuration of the Port.

There are two types of parallel port connections. The Centronics or Standard Parallel Port (This is signal line activated and then is run by timing.)

For example, when the PC has data to send to the printer, it first checks that the parallel port is not busy, by testing the signal on the nBUSY pin.

If the printer is not busy, then the PC lowers the signal on the nSTROBE signal line. The printer sees the signal drop and waits about 500ns and then sets nBUSY to low and transfers the data to the printer. 500ns later, the printer will raise the ACK line and lower the nBusy line.

The high speed version of the port works off of the edges of the signals and does not use the timing delays.

For example, the PC will check the nBUSY line and if it is not busy, then it will lower the nSTROBE line. When the printer sees the nSTROBE line go low, it latches the data off of the parallel port and then raises ACK and lowers nBUSY.

So the difference between the High Speed IEEE1284 and the Standard or Centronics is the timing. Standard uses timing delays and IEEE1284 does not. Also, the IEE1284 protocol allows for communication back from the printer via the parallel data pins. You cannot do this with the Centronics port.

There are several forms of IEE1284 so yo8u have to know which forms are used by your PC. For example, I believe that HP PCs use EPP form and Lexmark uses another form of IEE1284.

Problem my mac and mini dv deck when they are connected with dv ports


Hello, the mini dv is the port that carries images and video to a television for example, or a computer, but will not help to transfer data to a computer. the firewire port does transfer data to the computer though, this is the reason why it is ackowledged as an external hard drive when you plug it this way. The best is to plug both, this will give you the opportunity to watch on your desktop, and to transfer data

Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?


There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.

Sorry.

USB


UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS(USB) - is the most common type of computer port used in today's computers. It can be used to connect keyboards, mice, game controllers, printers, scanners, digital cameras, and removable media drives, just to name a few. With the help of a few USB hubs, you can connect up to 127 peripherals to a single USB port and use them all at once (though that would require quite a bit of dexterity).

USB is also faster than older ports, such as serial and parallel ports. The USB 1.1 specification supports data transfer rates of up to 12Mb/sec and USB 2.0 has a maximum transfer rate of 480 Mbps. Though USB was introduced in 1997, the technology didn't really take off until the introduction of the Apple iMac (in late 1998) which used USB ports exclusively. It is somewhat ironic, considering USB was created and designed by Intel, Compaq, Digital, and IBM. Over the past few years, USB has become a widely-used cross-platform interface for both Macs and PCs.
