Thinkpad T20 laptop problem
« on: September 26, 2007, 02:53:25 PM »
My first post. I had this problem last time I had to reload windows and Art was able to solve it with an address change which of course I have lost and forgotten.
Problem is my printer port is not outputting any pulses. Bios and windows report lpt1 is at hex 03bc. I put this in the config and enable but of course nothing.
Any ideas?
Tnx
Tp

only thing I can think of at the moment is you have the letter O instead of a Zero.
 If you attach your xml we can have a look and see if we notice anything.

Look on the ports and pins then motor outputs page, you dont have Port 1 in the boxes for each of your step and dir pins.
