I have a Canon BJC 4200 printer that does not work.  It was working before luntil I installed a new HD. The printer port is an
LPT ECP port.  

Would someone tell me how to install a local port (LPT1)?

THIS ANSWER IS GIVEN PREDICATED ON THE PREMISE THAT YOU ARE USING WIN95 OR WIN 98.
UNHOOK THE CABLE BETWEEN THE PRINTER AND YOUR COMPUTER

2.OPEN YOUR CONTROL PANEL, AND GOTO DEVICE MANAGER AND "REMOVE" YOUR PRINTER.

3 POER DOWN NORMALLY AND WITH THE POSER OFF, PLUG THE CABLE IN TO THE PRINTER AND COMPUTER.

4.  TURN THE POWER BACK ON AND BOOT UP. THE COMPPUTER SHOULD FIND YOUR PRINTER AND INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FOR IT.

5. YOU WILL NEED TO REBOOT AGAIN SO THAT YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM KNOWS WHAT KIND OF PRINTER YOU HAVE AND WHERE IT IS.

IF THE ABOVE DOESNT WORK, THEN FOLLOW STEPS 1,2,& 3 ABOVE.

4 GOT START, SETTINGS, PRINTER, THN DOULBLE CLICK ON "ADD PRINTER"
SELECT YOUR PRINTER AND FOLLOW THE STEPS AS OUTLINED THERIN.

5 SAME AS 5, ABOVE

i AM CERTAIN HAT ONE OF THESE METHODES WILLL WORK FOR YOU, DEE43

I am running Win95 ver.A.  I have the correct driver.  The cable is good.  I was able to connect a zip drive and that works fine.
My parallel port is set up properly for my printer.

It was suggested that I change the ECP port to a standard printer port because sometimes ECP or EPP port may cause some communication problems.

How can I change the port type?

As your computer boots up, get into your CMOS setup program. Often you press the DEL key or F10 to do this. It varies from BIOS to BIOS.
 
Once in the CMOS setup area you need to find the page that lets you set up the port. On the Award BIOS setup program you head to the Integrated Peripherals page, then select Onboard Parallel Mode. Once selected you can toggle the values using the PageUp and PageDown keys.

You should also check the Device Manager in your System Control Panel. You should have LPT1 listed there. If you don't have it, then you need to add it. Head to the Add New Hardware Control Panel. Tell the Wizard not to search for new hardware. Next tell the Wizard the hardware you want to install is a Port. Next tell the Wizard you want to install a standard Printer Port. Next let the Wizard finish the install. (You may also want to install the ECP printer port, to coordinate with an ECP setting in the CMOS setup.)
