Hp HP DeskJet 1100

HP 1100 cable

I was given a HP Lazerjet 1100, but no cable?? Where can I find a cable for the printer?? Also how do I idenify this cable it has a different connection at the printer??

Hi Bill, you need a Bi-Directional Parallel Printer Cable D25M - C36M . One end has a 25 PIN plug the other a weird oval shaped plug with a square bittrix plug in the middle.

Hello, did someone say South Bay? World headquarters of FYOP is in Redondo Beach and we have them in stock.

I need one of these printer cables as well. I live in San Jose, CA. Would be willing to pay a fair price. Need it quick.

Thank you.

I just got a case of them in Friday. San Jose is a bit of drive, but we can get one to you by Wednesday using UPS ground.

I want to connect my HP 1100 to my Dell but it needs a USB connection. Does that site have the cable that I need? It looks like it but I don't know for sure. I know that the 1100 requires some type of special cable connector.

What you need is a standard usb to parallel adapter and the item in the link below:


In fact look to the right on top as they also sell the standard usb to parallel adapter.

I am looking for some connection cable to my laptop from HP Laser 1100A as my laptop has only USP connection. Can u please help. I am writing from Fiji.

Nope. if your laptop does not have a parrellel port, you have to sell yout laserjet 1100 and buy a newer printer. I already went through that.

Gatrman you did not look hard enough and now you are giving out wrong info. There are many usb to parallel adapters out there and the only additional item needed is one to convert from regular parallel to miniparallel. Here is a link to a combo unit which many people have reported success.

I need a cable to connect my printer HP 1100 Lazerjet with my DSL.
The DSL only have ethernet connection

There is no cable since your printer does not have a ethernet port. The only way would be to order the cable set from sewell and then order an external parallel jetdirect. To expensive and I would just hook the printer directly to one of my computers using the usb adapter or mini parallel cable. - dmzcompute
thanks for the info - do you know if anyone has had success with hooking up the hp 1100 to usb with a vista system?
