HP Inkjet CP 1700 Inop

I have a customers 1700, and it has a display that just shows a few dots, and now the USB and Parallel ports do not respond. I removed the suspected parts and checked for cold solder joints and pinched wires, no help. What are the part numbers for the display and the PCB that contains the parallel port? Any other idea's since I can't see any information?

The CP1700 LED was a problem for HP. This part is no longer available from HP. Machine will function fine without however when a problem occurs you won't have a clue what the machine is asking for....more than likely it will be asking for a specific printhead or cartridge.

This problem is not an issue in the Business Inkjet 2800. LED is much different

The digital readout on the CP1700 is a problem. I have replaced mine now 4 times at a cost of $90 each time, and I'm going to have to do it again or get the new 2800. Just wonder if the 2800 is going to have the same defect.

USB Port Dell 1700 Printer

On the back side of the printer (left side) below the parallel port and below the LAN (ethernet) port is the USB port. It looks like a barn door. The cable you would need to use is an A/B USB cable. it has the standard rectangular usb port on one end and the funny barn door that is used by printers and scanners on the other end. I hope this helps.

Hp 6310 show offline wont print

Hi, how do you connect to the printer? USB/parallel/Network? Does it prints fine if you print an information page from the printer display/butons? I would try to uninstall the printer driver and install it again to start. It's definately a communication problem so it may take a few tries to get it to work again.

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
