Question about Sharp AR-5320 Black and White Copier

PC cannot send data to printer

My printer prints on a parallel port.The Sharp machine prints one document and refuses to print others immediately after.On my old computer in the 'BIOS' I had to go under 'Peripherals' and set parallel port modem to ECP.I now have a new computer where the parallel ports were not installed with the motherboard, but afterwards.I cannot set the same ECP settings under the BIOS.What now?How do I get this Sharp to print continuously?I l already reinstalled the driver but problem stays.

    When I set it to ECP (on my previous computer) it worked beautifully. I have not tried RAW and I don't know what driver I am using. The software came with the installation CD. I'll have a look at that RAW stuff (I presume that is also to be set in BIOS) and I'll have a look if it is a pdf driver.

    What happens when you set it from ECP to RAW?



    Are using a PDF driver?

You might have some trouble using the pdf when printing. Use the PCL driver. It's more reliable.

I've installed the AL-1540CS but I'm having trouble figuring out how to scan documents and load them onto the computer with the Parallel interface. Can you help me out?


Scanning is not possible thru the parallel port. You must use the USB1.1 port in order to use the scanning feature.
The parallel port is only used for printing.
If you hook up the machine with a USB cable you can print and scan using USB. This includes color scanning.
Thank You for using Fixya.

I CAN`T SEND A FAX


Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Ping works, I can see the html page in the AR-205 but can't print


If you connect the machine to network via AR NB3 and EB 9, go to key operator program in the html page, hopefully the password still the default "Sharp", try test page printing. Also check the account control from the machine's panel by pressing special function, key operator program, password ( 00000 ) account control and un-check the account control for printer.

Okidata Microline 320 turbo problem


Solved this problem by going into the bios and changing the port from ECP to EPP, and then uninstalling the ECP port in device manager and replacing it with a standard parallel port configuration, no problems since doing that.

Canon BJC 2000 question-1284 to usb

The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.

Replace the communication cable (parallel cable).
If that does not solves, your PC parallel port is damaged. must replace it.
