Look for help in our forum for printers from various manufacturers.


This printer has 3 input ports: Centronics parallel, serial, Appletalk.

The MC68000 processor is supposed to recognize which input needs attending. I have only the parallel port hooked up.

The parallel port seemed to work fine when the BIOS settings for it were SPP instead of anything fancy, like EPP or ECP.

My setup was Linux 2.2.5 (a la SuSE 6.1).

My /etc/printcap lacked a trailing colon after the sh specification which caused lpd not to work until it was fixed.

It has both PostScript and PCL emulation modes, but I only use the PostScript mode.

Consumables/Refills: toner cartridge
