HP T45 Connectivity Problem

I just purchased a new Dell computer that doesn't have a 28? pin connector port for my HP T45. Is there some kind of adapter for this? say, 28? pin to USB?

Hi-

When you said 28 pin do you mean a parallel cable?

HP all-in-one products will not work correctly with USB-to-parallel adapters. The HP product and software will not be able to establish the two-way communication required to operate correctly. Only HP all-in-one products designed to work with a USB connection can be connected to a USB port on the computer.

What i can recommend is for you to call your computer manufacturer if they have a parallel card that you can install in your computer so that it'll have a parallel port.

Hope this help

Yes they sell adapters for printers that converst them to usb. but give me one sec to look because i believe that you printer should have a usb hook up so you do not have to use the 28 pin hook up...

    ok your printer does not have a usb connection option. so they do sell a converter from a 28 pin to a usb........

    just go to your local best buy or walmart and go to the printer section... i will check walmarts web page for you and send you the link so you can check to see if it is available in your area..... but yes you can get an adapter.

    ok I am so sorry but i have spoke to and hp rep and he told me that even if you get the adapter that the printer will not work.

    he says that the hp officejet T45 all in one printer will be to old for windows xp and windows vista. He recomends that you upgrade your printer. I am sorry for the confusion. I will send you our conversation if you need it to verify for yourself.... Please accept my apoligize.

    Another option by the way is to use a print server with parrallel ports which is the 25 pin port used for printers that your HP T45 has. This is good if you have more than 1 computer that you would like to print using that printer although I see that it is a multifunction you will not be able to use the other functions other than the printing function so the best bet would be a converter that you can find in the link in my first post.

    The T45 does not have a USB port although to assist you I found a Parallel PCI card for your computer you can see the link below so that you can see your options

Connect Dell Mini with HDMI to VGA PC flat monitor


hi,
you would need an HDMI to VGA adapter. sometimes it would come in a form of a separate cable or just a regular adapter which would convert the HDMI end to VGA (the blue one that has 15 pins)
you can purchase these cables from your local computer store.
hope this helps

Unable to scan -- I think I downloaded software for Dell 926 and rebooted, turned off printere, back on again, no luck. Help! JJB


we have a hewlett packard t45. We got a new computer without a lpt1 port, so we got a usb cable. Now it will only print, the print requires a lpt1 port to operate properly. The new scanners and all-in-one printers use a usb cable. I had to got to the manufactures website and do some searching and reading to figure it out.

Want to connect to my computer


What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.

Hp officejet T45 problem


I found that the T45 will print color from the HP 950 Driver, which is easy to select in most Windows versions. You may have software conflict so it might work for you...
