Yes. you can find parallel to usb cable which cost around £5-10. Alternatively, is your printer have network port...you can use that also to connect it to your computer.

Is it possible to connect an old, still very efficient HP 5L Laserjet Printer which uses parellel port cable to a new computer via a USB cable? If yes, what do I need?


Yes it is. You just need a Parallel to USB adapter. Here is a link to an example of what you need.

Parallel to USB

I have done this several times with Parallel Receipt Printers. Works Great!!

Another option would be to add a Parallel Port to your new computer. Here is another link.

PCI Parallel Card

The 1st option is probably the cheapest and easiest.

Good luck and have a great day!

I have an old HP deskjet 3820 printer and a new HP pavilion desk top which has only USB I/O ports, no parallel ports. Therefore I need an adapter cable to connect my printer to my new PC. Does the adapter...


You can almost buy a new printer for the cost of the adapter you are talking about buying. They have all kinds of adapters: the kind that connects to the flat end of a USB or the square end. Parallel, male or female. Go to a computer store like best buy, they should be able to hook you up.

Hope this helps.

Can not print with Epson LX-300


The USB to parallel converter does not always work.

You should buy a Parallel port for your computer if you have can extra slot inside the machine. The cost for the parallel port is usually under $20.

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.
