I have tried them and the printing has stopped in the middle of a job In installing the cable, I read somewhere that it is important to connect it to the computer first and let Windows’ plug-n-play discover it as a USB printer. Then you can connect it to the printer, turn the printer on, and install printer drivers; also disable the LPT port in the BIOS if you can and uninstall it in Device Manager. Thanks for the temporary workaround! I have seen a couple other posts where those converter parallel to usb cables do not work well.

I virtualised the Win7 machine, and hosted it on a Win10 machine with Hyper-V. I think those cables sometimes do not translate the language all the time and can corrupt data as it flows. I spent countless hours solving this mystery.
Parallel to USB converter
This thread is locked. PhilBixby Replied on January 9, Sorry this didn’t help.
MikeAllam Replied on January 12, Several Ak112 support engineers responded to my pleas for help in this forum, and I had two hour-long interactive sessions with Microsoft engineers where they took control of my computer. Unlike the fixes to the LPT port in Windows, the conversion cable fix will survive rebooting.
Since I only use one computer at a time at least for printingthis seems like the best solution, though it obviously is unique to my situation. I have tried them and the printing has stopped in the middle of a job When I click on print in Word I first received the error: Tell us about your experience with our site.
The only way to still use my printer was to buy a parallel to USB adapter. My final solution was – go back to the LPT to USB converter cable and share it through the customers broadband modem as a networked printer. But the “Try not to use an interrupt” trick did work at least temporarily. It isn’t getting any easier.

Any help would be most welcome. I’ve not tried using the Parallel port with different interrupt settings – to be honest once the USB solution worked I just punched the air and carried on being an architect who could print his own drawings. But they all just repeated the standard advice to reinstall printer drivers, check the print spooler, etc. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the qk12.
In reply to BillClemens’s post on November 24, I have tried uninstalling the LPT driver and re-starting with still the same results. For me, I would be unable to print when awakening my computer from Sleep mode and the only thing that would work would be to Disable then Enable the Parallel port card in Device Manager, like so many others have been doing.
The OKI was set as default printer.
How satisfied are you with this response? This worked for me with my ancient Lexmark ED connected to a desktop, which was connected to the printer parallel port ak21 the USB port was already connected to a laptop.
I am hoping that the issue has been fixed. Then you can connect it to the printer, turn the printer on, and install printer drivers; also disable the LPT port in the BIOS if you can and uninstall it in Device Manager.
In reply to rpesq’s post on November 15, You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread.
This site in other languages x. Even when resuming from Sleep mode, I am able to print without any issues.
Thanks for the temporary workaround! After numerous uninstalls and re-installs I found that the problem was connected with the integral LPT port.
If I attempt to print a second time I receive the error:
