I have an Epson 400 stylus printer. I recently added a logitech scanner. The scanner plugs into the printer port into the back of the computer and the printer plugs into the scanner. Now, when I try to print something (not something I've scanned) It tells me printer is offline and out of paper. Anu suggestions?

Add a second printer port, the pass thru is not compatible with all printers and other devices.  Run one device off one card and the other device off the second port.  Should only cost about $15.00 for second card.

Before you purchase a second parallel port, some scanners require to be TURNED ON for the pass through to work.  My HP5100C and HP4000N work this way.  Just a suggestion/clarification.

I have seen this many times, and this a sure and cheap fix.
