    Please friends, I have a laserjet printer HP 1000 and cant get a
    cable for it. The port on the printer is just like the parallel port
    (D 25 ) on the PC. Is there any special cable for this printer or I
    can easily make one by joining two parallel printer cables ( D 25 to
    D25, Pin 1 to 1, pin 2 to 2 etc.)? If there is any way of making the
    cable I will be glad to know. thanks

    Is your printer like the one described here?

    If so, it has a USB interface, if not, please reply with the
    exact model number of your printer. The connector you described
    in your post may well be a serial port.

    Regards,

    IEEE bidirection 25 pin cable, I just bought a new one
    not to long ago. I don't understand why you can't ?

    The LaserJet 1000 uses a special USB formatter cable.

    From
    http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...Id=18972&prodSeriesId=45674&objectID=bpl11004:
    The printer does not connect to the computer's parallel port.
    The HP LaserJet 1000 series printer is designed to connect only to the
    computer's USB port.

    Here's one source for the cable:

    Of course it would probably be cheaper just to buy a used printer with
    the cable on ebay.
