Printer not able to hook up to new Dell

Our printer only has a old cable hook up and phone cord hook ups.
Do we use a phone cord to adapt to the other cable?

Your printer the g85 on the backyou will see below yhr bar codes where the power cord is four connections. looking at it from the back facing you on the far right is the power cord next to the power cord is the cord from the top lid second from the left i dont use this but i think it is the serial connection and far left connection is the usb cable the usb is the best on to use the two phone lines on what i call the leg or base far left remmber they need a special phone cord most cords only have two wires hooked up this on needs all four or it just want work right.hoop this helps

I have misplaced the power cable for my Dell I926 printer. Please advise cost to replace this?


The power cable should not be any more than $5.00 to $7.00, this is a common cord to replace.

We just hooked up new dell vostro 230 computers and the cord from my hp laserjet 2100tn does not have the right adapter, what do I do?? Thanks - Sher


You cna either hook the printer up to your home network, that's what the n at the end of the model number means, or you can purchase one of these Parallel Port to USB connectors

Those are unfortunatly your only options.

What do you do to hook up a printer


hi Dan

if its anew printer , it would have come with a CDROM driver and a large sheet (11x17 inch) of the steps to take to install it

if its not new, get the CD driver for it , if you dont have it download from dell support site www.dell.com -- all you need to do is install the driver, then follow the isntructions -- make sure you have the USB cable and power cord

if this hekped you, please leave positive feedback

I just got a new dell. i've hooked my old hp


1. Try to connect this printer to your PC by ETHERNET cable as opposed to USB 2.0 and see if it speeds up.

2. If it speeds up we know it isn't necessarily the printer giving the problem

3. Now we start to look at the cable. Use a brand new cable to attach it to the PC. If it persists it may very well be the USB port on the Printer itself.

4. To test the port, attach it to another PC and if it speeds up as u expect, then it is not the USB port on the Printer

5. Now it's time to check the Printer Software on the new Dell and fiddle with it a bit accordingly.

Solution
If it is that u cannot get it to speed up by USB and it works well by Ethernet, just use Ethernet to connect it and call it a day

Power problem


According to the owners manual: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/PRN942/en/om/942_om_en.pdf The power connector is next to the USB connector in the back of the printer. You use the AC adaptor to hook up the printer to a wall outlet to give it power and then the USB Cable is hooked up to the computer so you can install the printer software to the computer so it recognizes the printer.

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.
