FX-890 Impact Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
My printer will not power-on at all when I connect the parallel cable. What should I do?
A:
Disconnect the parallel cable from the back of the printer and see if the power comes on. If it does, there may be a problem with the cable. Try a different cable, making sure that it is fully shielded and preferably six feet or less in length. If a switch box is being used, remove it and connect the printer directly to the computer with a single cable. If you still have the same problem, try "masking" pin 31 on the cable connector that attaches to the printer. If you decide to mask pin 31, use masking or electrical tape.
