Trouble connecting LaserJet6p to Windows 7 64 bit computer using usb to parallel printer cable

October 11Hits:0

The printer isn't responding at all--not even a test page. I've verified that the correct driver is installed and the computer does recognize the printer (even as the "default").
Any suggestions?   The computer is working with my other printer through blue-tooth,,,,
Thanks!

The USB-parallel cable needs a driver that supports Windows 7 x64 in addition to the driver the printer needs.  Additionally make sure the port settings are correct, usually the port will be something like USB001: or USB002: for the USB-parallel port. Some cables may provide a virtual LPT port such as LPT3:.  Check the documentation for your unit for details.
The posts here list models of USB-parallel ports folks here have had success with in Windows 7.
