printer problem

by purple713 In reply to printer problem

I need more info. What type of printer is it? In the BIOS you should be using either Bi-directional or ECP. Check inside the PC to make sure that there is not a loose cable on the motherboard. If the printer port is mounted to the mother board, there could be a failure in the port. Best way to test this is to get another printer port and test it out. (Looks lik a Expansion card). If that works then there is a problem with that port. Make sure that the port is also reading from LPT1.

Hope this helps.
