Go to Control Panel and then Devices & Printers. Click on your printer icon and then choose: Customize Your Printer. Go to the Ports tab and verify which port is configured for you printer. You can change the port settings there.

This is one reason why I only use the USB connections for printers and scanners, faster and more reliable.

Is there a reason you are using the parallel port? As far as I can tell, that printer should be able to use a USB cable, which is much easier :).

Do you know if you are using a parallel cable on this printer, as it could be that you actually are using a USB cable and this is why there is a problem. Sorry if you are already aware of this, but it is worth mentioning just in case. I've attached an image of what a parallel cable looks like:

My Printer is already functioning. Thanks!

Good deal, glad you got it fixed. What did you do to fix it?

Others here may want to know for future reference.
