I don't know that printer, but it's possible it uses bidirectional communication (thru a specific cable), which Windows checks (and uses !!), while DOS does not.

That would explain why a Print Screen under DOS works fine, ehils Windoze says that "LPT has an error".

Try this: go to BIOS setup and see to change parallel port definition setting it as SP.

More than Likely vikiing is right.  I'd make sure that I had an IEEE 1284 compliant cable, and I'd also check to see if my bios was set to ECP/EPP/or SPP.  Try each of the settings to see which on works.  The documentation should tell you what kind of printer port is required. Good luck

GREETINGS!

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
