    Do you have Vista Drivers for your printer?





    I've never used a USB to Parallel cable before but does that usually need a driver to use as well?

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

Another option is to find an old laptop, with "wireless" capabilities and a Parallel Port.

Connect the printer to the laptop.

Connect the laptop to your wireless network.

Tell the laptop to "share" the printer.

Then, any computer on your network can "find" the networked printer, and can print to it.

You don't write how exactly is your printer connected - if I remember correctly, HP LJ 4P doesn't have a USB connector, and Vostro doesn't have the parallel port available.
So how did you connect it? Is it via some USB to parallel adaptor, or via JetDirect network card in the printer? There are multiple separate issues that may be applicable in either case...

Lexmark X4550 not printing in Vista can't enable bi-directional


"Bi Directional Printing" is a statement of Parallel Port printing. Are you connected from your PC to the Printer via the parallel port?\

Did you disconnect the USB cable form the PC and then delete the current driver prior to installing the Win 7 driver?

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.

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!
