I am using a Zebra (Elton) 2684 Printer. I just upgraded my computer and it doesn't have a serial or parallel connection. Will a Parallel to USB cable work under Vista with this printer?

Depending on what port do you have on the back (or side) of the printer (USB, parallel, serial). Use the correct cable (USB, parallel, or serial cable) to connect the printer to the correct port on the computer (USB, parallel, or serial). You need to install the software driver on the computer before it will work. Google the name and model of the printer to download the driver to your computer.

I just bought a new computer and the connections don't match up. what do i do? I have the Eltron LP 2443PSA Thanks, Mike


I beleive your printer only has a Parallel interface and your new pc does not. You will need a USB to Parallel cable.

Lp 2844 will not work with my new laptop


You need a piece of software to create a Virtual com port, make sure you have the comms set correctly 9600, n, 8, 1 and print to that port, you will find it clearly marked in Device Manager. You can get a parallel to USB cable then you can use your driver set to LPT1

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 doesn't work when use usb parallel converter.


Forget about using parallel converter. Just use the USB cable it works best anyway.

Easiest way is this.

1: Turn printer on. (Green light. ready to print)

2: DISCONNECT the usb cable from the PC.

3 DELETE the Zebra LP2844 & Zdesigner drivers from the printers & Faxes folder. Just highlight them and hit the delet key. Don't worry Iknow what I'm doing.

4: Plug in your USB cable back into PC.

Just sit back and wait, your PC will automatically detect your printer and re-load your driver software.

Zebra LP 2844 parallel communication problem


The printer is installed on the PC using a specific port. If it's installed on the USB port, it won't work on the parallel port. Do you have this printer installed 3 different times? Need more details such as how was it installed the first time? And if it's working on the other 2 ports, why does it have to work on the parallel?

No response from 105Se


if the data light comes on and nothing prints chances are that the serial settings are set improperly. all of my printers are 25 pin serial, not parallel. i don't have one in front of me but i believe the settings are 19200, 8, 1, none. hope this helps.

How to configure the Zebra S500 using a USB to Parallel adapter?


The Zebra Stripe S500 has a RS-232 SERIAL interface using a DB-25 connector . You'll need a USB to SERIAL converter, not parallel. Be sure that the baud rate and data/stop bits are set the same on the printer and interface converter. Generally speaking, use the fastest setting possible (19200 baud) unless you encounter problems.
