I am new in here. Somebody can tell me how can I make a DB 25 Male to DB25 Male cable for connect a Epson TM-U220PD printer parallel interface to a old computer that just have a parallel port too?
No body can help me this?
Are you sure this printer features parallel interface? The connector is typical for serial interface. If this interface is serial, any db-25 to db-25 nullmodem cable (http://pinouts.ru/SerialPortsCables/Nullmodem9to9_pinout.shtml) should work.
Yes, the printer is EPSON TM-U220PD and mother board just have a Parallel Port (LPT). Let me try if that pinout can work.
I would think any 25pin straight though cable should work.
Also had it been a Serial Printer. You also would want a 25pin M-F straight though cable. A Serial Printer is an End-Device and the Computer is a Host Device, and it take just a straight though cable to connect them. A Null-Modem Cable is 'Hacked' so that two Host Devices can talk to each other (both 'seeing' the other as a End-Device due to the cable)
