My new HP computer is not compatible with my old printer

Hi,

I have recently bought a new HP computer and I am having a problem connecting my old printer to it. I have an old HP LaserJet 4 that still uses a Centronics printer cable. Since my computer is new, I want to find ways of how I can make my old printer work. What cable do I need to buy to make these two compatible with each other?

Hi,

You have not mentioned the model of your HP computer, as such it is assumed that this computer do not have a parallel printer port.

As such, you need to have a convertor to attach a USB printer port to a parallel printer port.

There are multiple products available in the market, for example see the picture

The cost of this item is between the range of 9 USD to 20 USD.

Hi Hannah,

You need a USB cable and printer drivers to start.

1. USB drivers can be like as per this site,

2. Printer drivers are available from the HP website,

Select the driver which suits to your printer. I am sure the same should work.

Best of luck!
