Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a parallel device, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Parallel cables

  • Parallel ports

  • Parallel devices

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the parallel cable, parallel port, and parallel device in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different parallel cable, parallel port, and parallel device in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the parallel ports and parallel device, it is recommended that you do the following:

Note: Some parallel devices only work if the LPT port number is between a certain range, usually LPT1 or LPT2.

This issue was the result of a Windows update that has recently been fixed in the KB3140743 update. If you are still experiencing this issue, download the latest Windows update.

You can also temporarily resolve the issue by completing the following:

  1. Press the Windows key + X.
  2. Click Device Manager.
  3. Expand the section for Ports (COM & LPT).
  4. Right-click on the LPT port that is experiencing the issue.
  5. Click Properties.
  6. Click the Port Settings tab.
  7. Under Filter Resource Method, select an option that is not currently selected.
  8. Click OK.

 

Before You Buy

This USB parallel device is only intended to be used with printers. Your operating system will register this device as a USB Printer Support device and not as an additional LPT port. If you need a USB parallel device to handle parallel devices in addition to printers, consider the ICUSB2321284.
