Is it that hard to find 1 STUPID PRINTER CABLE!!! Arrrggghh this is crap. I bought a Sagem 3850 colour laser printer last week but cant print to it via Lan due to no supported lan software and trying to find a cable......AAARRRRGGGG

The cable is a HPCN36 half the size of a normal parallel port and about 5 or 6 years oldNO ONE HAS ONE or no one knows they have one

ANY HELP FROM ANY ONE AT ALL WOULD JUST ROCK MY WORLD : )

Not a lot of help so far people SOME ONE MUST HAVE A CLUE??? or is trademe full of clueless sella's from asia lol

Is it the same plug as used on some HP lasers? http://tinyurl.com/mtfawf

how come you cant use the lan to print? Just add a port with the printers IP address and windows will normally do it all from there.

I could pull one out of my.No Sorry, wrong cable.

me_bob1, Sep 2, 4:23am
No imagination thats it! Yea i tried adding the port using the ip number but no good. I think it needs some driver or some thing for it to work.

me_bob1, Sep 2, 4:30am
Ascent is out of stock aaarrrggghhh And the tiny URL is perfect if only I knew were it was??

Look for a HP laserjet parallel cable in that case.

45kiwi you didn't check very hard then, they manufacture fax machines, printers, set top boxes, internet radios, video projectors, digital photo frames..

richms, Sep 2, 4:52am
The one you bought on the 26th looks like a piece of crap qms magicolor2 printer that the brother 2400 was based off, The printserver in the brother 2400 was a brother one so no idea what sagem may have put in their one. Would be suprised if you cant just add the IP and if needed change it over to LPR mode to get it going to it. No web interface on it at all?

me_bob1, Sep 2, 4:53am
Yup they do Just dont buy an old one cause you cant get any bloody bits for them...

me_bob1, Sep 2, 4:57am
No web interface at all! useless

little_egypt, Sep 2, 4:58am
I'd check the manual http://support.sagem-communications.com/site/livret/um_mf3830_3850_en.pdf
network printing should be the easiest option but perhaps it's been turned off? otherwise the cable you want is probably a 'mini-centronics 36' and no I don't have any. I used to though ;)

Rebrand mostlyThey are a native french company that rebrands so that french people think they are supporting their own. Very hard to get support on their stuff.
