GETTING TO KNOW YOUR PRINTER COMBO ADAPTER
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 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 printer combo adapter. If you connect printer combo
adapter to both of them, 1284 interface will be the functioning one.
3). Apply power to printer combo adapter by using the power adapter
accompanied.
4). RESET button is to re-initialize the printer adapter, it is normally left unused.
You also can un-plug the power adapter, then plug it again to get the same
result.
