You need to buy a USB-to Serial adapter cable like this one:

scopestuff.com sells these. The Keyspan brand USB-Serial adapter is also a good one.

You need to make sure you have selected the correct COM port whin you try to print. Depending on the type of USB to serial converter, the COM port it assigns can change just by moving it to another USB port. Right-click on My Computer and select MANAGE. Select Device Manager from the list. Click on the (+) next to PORTS and double-click on your USB-SERIAL device COM port. Somewhere in the Properties window you should be able to see the assigned COM port (COM1, COM2, etc.). If possible, set the COM port to COM1 or COM2 for greatest compatibility with older software. Then when you print, make sure your printer driver is also set to the same COM port.

Trying to connect a lap top to the 450C designjet but don't have the proper connection to hook up


I believe this plotter has both the old centronics and a 25 pin serial connection. Your laptop MAY have a 7 pin serial connection which you can get a 7 pin to 25 pin serial cable. If your laptop does not have a serial port, you MIGHT find a USB to serial adapter cable.

Make sure you are not on Vista or Win 7 operating systems as they likely do NOT have compatible drivers for this plotter.

Celestron Nexstar 114gt telescope,hand controller lights up only


Do you have a fresh set of batteries in the scope? Better to use an outside 12 volt power pack with the Celestron 12 volt "cigarette" lighter cable.

This can be three things:

Low power

Bad cable from hand controller to scope.

Or a broken hand controller

Try fresh batteries first.

Focus knob on Celestron NexStar 5 does not appear to be working. Knob still moves but does not sharpen the focus.


Does the focuser move in and out when you turn the knob? If it does then go outside during the day timne and practice focusing on a distant object. Use the eyepiece with the biggest number written on it.

This will give you the lowest magnification-- which is easier to focus.

Hi Dan, before you ship it off somewhere, you may want to try and change out the hand controller with another one that someone has and see if the problem moves.
