Do you know which connecting cables work with the Epson Stylus Photo 2200 printer. I see a sczi firewire 400? and don't know what the 3rd is. I am trying to connect it to a Mac Book Pro with snow leopard...


You should be able to connect to your macbook with a standard USB A-B cable, for most printers it's almost square at one end standard flat at the other.

You can get them from ebay or any pc/printer shop, just ask for a standard USB printer cable. Here's one on ebay:- Item number:180514570583.

For mac drivers for the printer, the best place to look is the Epson website, follow links for support and downloads, entering the details of you operating system and printer model as you go. You should arrive at a page which offers free drivers for your PC.

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Can the P2055d be connected with a parallel lead?


Most HP's if they have a port for parallel, it is a special plug on the back that looks more like a SCSI plug. If your printer has this plug you need the special cable, otherwise you will need an adapter to convert USB to parallel.

Need what type of printer cable to fix to the compaq laptop from Epson Stylus C86 so i can print from laptop


You can use USB or Parallel according to the user guide. Most laptops made recently wont have a parallel port and the cables are harder to find so I recommend USB.

Trying to connect from USB laptop to parallel printer


You can't have a double hook up to it,When the parallel port is used the usb port is disabled and when you use the usb port the parallel port is disable.This is done to prevent damage to the printer.You can network the laptop with the pc and print that way though

Connect kyocera fs680 to laptop


it depends on what laptop you have. the fs680 only has a parallel connection so your laptop needs to have a parallel port or you need a usb to parallel converter.

USB CABLE


the printer is designed to work with a parallel cabel connection. usb to parallel conversion cables may or may not work. 
now for the second part is, about the driver (visit manufacturers website for updated drivers), usb driver behaves differently compared to parallel drivers as it expects a usb printer connected to a computer. try both drivers. remember, it may or may not work.

I have a new Compaq laptop running Vista home and an old samsung 4216f. I tried a parallel to usb and cannot get the printer to work. No parallel ports on laptop and no usb on printer. Any ideas?


If you have a home network, try a Print Server with parallel port. You will connect the printer to the print server via parallel, and the print server to a network hub/switch/router (any of the listed) via a network cable, and the computer to the hub/switch/router via network cable or wireless.

Cost should be around $20 - $60 depending on make/model.
