Screwed up Printer AND modem ports
Posted on 2000-01-26
I have a PowerComputing Pro 210 (mac clone) with OS8, and have been using quite successfully a 3ComImpactIQ ISDN modem in the modem port and a HP DeskJet 870CXi in the printer port. Then I was given a Handspring Visor Deluxe (Palm clone), and I attempted to set up its
Hot Syncing by temporarily unplugging the modem and plugging in the cradle. Since then, even though I have reinstalled the modem software from both Apple and 3Com, the ISDN modem won't work (I am getting the local telco to check if the line got hurt, but keep reading) THE BACKUP global village modem 56k works just fine. However, the PRINTER port is not working right now either, I reinstalled the HP driver and when I go to Chooser to pick the setup, it starts on modem icon and won't stay on Printer icon even when chosen. I have thrown out all relevant preferences, and started from scratch. The Apple software was just cleanedup by a Apple repair shop, and they Tech Tool Pro'd as much as they could the hardware. Nothing wrong. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
