I have a hp-deskjet510 which run fine for years on all my computers.
Now I decided to put it to my old linux-server again with a gigabyte-
and now the following thing happens:
when plugging in the parallelport the busy-light of the printer turns on
immediately and I can do nothing (no reset, no testingpage, no changing
catridge and no printing of course). Ok maybe wrong port-mode or wrong
So I enter the bios-setup and IMMEDIATELY AFTER ENTERING THE BIOS the
busy-light goes off and the printer goes to normal mode. when leaving the
bios again (independent of the port-settings I selected: I tried all
adresses/irqs and portmodes from abraham to zacharias) the printer
switch to its * busy-light-on-mode again !!
what the heck is going on here ?
when* a canon-bj200 to the same cable this one seem to have a
quite normal behavior.
