SOURCE: Can I print in Dos Programme with USB Printer

Assuming the printer can understand DOS coded printouts (which most should be able to), you can do it like this: Go to Control Panel | Printers | ML 2010 and share the printer. Then go to a command prompt Start | Run | type cmd Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type NET USE LPT2: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES at a command prompt. Now you can print to LPT2: and the output will go to the USB-connected printer. To find your computer name, right click on the My Computer icon (either on your desktop or the start menu) and choose properties. The window that opens will have a Computer Name tab.

SOURCE: Time consuming

you do not need an additional driver for xp.
go to Control panel, then printer-fax, click add printer. Then follow the instruction. Choose BJC80. But usually it comes automatically if you plug in the printer.

SOURCE: 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.

thanks adi

Epson UB-U03II not working

I had huge issues with my TM-U220. It does not play well with a Centronix-to-USB cable or with Windows 64-bit. I played for AGES to try and get it all to work.

I installed the USB device driver[1] I was able to print the Test Page proving that the connection between Windows and the printer sort of worked, but when I tried printing anything from Unicenta POS, it always failed.

I finally bought a new Centronix-to-USB and a new parallel port card, used Windows 32-bit, and problem solved.

They key is to uninstall everything, including searching through the Registry to delete everything.

If not mistaking I think the Star TSP printer is a POS (Point Of Sale) printer, are you using a DOS based POS software??? if it's the case than I came across this problem many years ago, and the only solution that I came up with is a REGISTRY FIX, here is what i've found at the time... When the POS DOS software prints out a receipt, it does not send a CR (carriage return) to the printer, so Windows halts (Waite state) to make sure there's nothing else coming down the printer port, so you have to lower the wait state of the printer spool in the REGISTRY, usually it is set to 15 seconds, drop it down to 1 second, you can imagine how frustrating it was for my client having to wait 15 seconds for the printer to start printing on each transaction (in a convenient store) I don't quite remember the exact registry path but it's somewhere in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-SYSTEM-ControlSet001-Control-WOW, in there you will find a LPT_timeout set to (15), set it to (1) than reboot... it should work... (if I have the path wrong you can perform a search with the word "LPT_timeout" in REGEDIT (B.T.W.) to open REGEDIT click on START, RUN, type in "regedit" than hit enter (be careful not to change anything else in there, you will screw up Windows) it is always a good idea to make a good backup of your system before playing with REGEDIT...

Good luck!

try going to the star printer manufacturer web page and downloading the driver/software directly from there for your model
check for win operating systems that will support the drivers
from what you write it indicates that the driver is missing so the pc cannot see the connection

The star tsp700II receipt printer I have was working great and then one day it started feeding paper before each receipt. So it wastes about 6inches of paper on every receipt. I cannot figure out what...

Our Star TSP700II leaves about 1/4 inch of unused paper on the roll when the error light comes on and the printer stops printing. Is there any way we can make an adjustment so that we're not wasting so much paper?

Printer is not working

The Pixma MP210 does not support a wireless connection. It has a USB port. Some wireless routers do have USB ports and can thus share the printer. Similarly, there are print server options that can be connected to the USB port. However, these will not work with the scanner functions of the all-in-one. Also you would need to confirm that the print server you choose is compatible with the Pixma MP210.

The fastest way to print right now is to connect the USB cord to the laptop. Wait for the drivers to be installed and then send the file to the printer. Moving the cable will let both computers use the scanner features of the all-in-one. A manual USB A/B switch might allow you to share the printer with fewer chances for a damaged USB cable. However, these usually don't support the scanner. Scanning requires bi-directional communication between the printer and the computer. A bad USB cable can turn an all-in-one into a single function printer with a direct USB connection.

Once the MP210 driver is on both systems and they are connected to the same network, you may be able to set up the desktop as a print server for the laptop. This will depend on the OS on both systems. Something like the Windows Homegroup easily allows printer sharing when enabled for systems with Windows 7 and newer on a private network. Both systems need to join the same homegroup. One system starts the homegroup. Then you have to type in the password on the second computer. This works even with one system connected to the wireless network and the other connected to a wired port on the router.

On Vista and XP, you could enable printer sharing as well in the Network and Sharing center. See for the steps With Windows OS versions, the scanner functions will only be available on the computer with the direct USB connection.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the OS versions on both the desktop and the laptop if you need more specific advice.
