GETTING TO KNOW YOUR BT-0260 PRINTER COMBO ADAPTER
BT-0260 printer combo adapter supports two interfaces which can
be used to connect with your printer.
1). IEEE-1284 - It is a 36-pin male connector on the front. Connect it to
your printer. If your printer hides its female connector inside its case,
then you have to open it.
2). USB - It is a USB type A connector. You need to connect one end of the
USB cable to BT-0260 printer combo adapter, then connect another
end to the printer.
Note : If your printer supports both interfaces, we recommend you to
choose just one to connect with BT-0260 printer combo adapter. If you
connect BT-0260 printer combo adapter to both of them, 1284 interface
will be the functioning one.
3). Apply power to BT-0260 adapter by using the 7.5V DC power adapter
accompanied, it is also the only way to RESET BT-0260.
4). Mode button is used by the advanced user to configure the printer
adapter for some special purposes, it is normally left unused. You also
can refer to the Utility Manual in CD for how to use it.
