I’m glad that fixed it. Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. Never connect s a parallel device to a serial port, and vice versa, as the voltages differ and something will blow. When enabled you should have the option to change its address, IRQ and mode. You should also view the properties for the Citizen to verify they are set as expected. On Control Panel, under ‘Printers and Faxes’ it shows which printers are currently installed, plus options to add a printer and trouble shoot.

Good Luck – Keep us posted. First make sure the parallel port is enabled. Bios setup is before windows starts booting.

If you go to the printers list in WinXP is that printer listed? Would you use Snapchat filters on your dog?

If you can print a test page then your problem is probably NOT with the port settings. With dot matrix printers, often they needed their own drivers to cover any special features they had. Use Question Form citizeen as ” Why?

Yes No I don’t have a dog. These very old dot matrix printers do indeed make noise.

Net and its accuracy. You should also view the properties for the Citizen to verify they are set as expected. Did you install the drivers? I citzen remove any printers no longer used including their driver s. You will then see a screen showing the default printer, which you probably need to change using the drop down menu there.


That said, they are part to the BIOS settings that can be user changed. After making any necessary changes there, save and exit setup and boot into windows. When enabled you should have the option to change its address, IRQ and mode. I have no idea how to check the bios setting can some one tell me citizsn to do that on windows xp?

Here’s some info on mode configuration: Perhaps the printer is broken. I just picked up an old citizen gx printer I used the parallel cable to hook it up installed the drivers and I still can’t get anything to print when I unplug the cable from the computer the printer makes a nose and when I plug it back in it makes a nose but I cant get anything to print. If so, you should be able to go to properties and print a test page.

Net is the opinions of its users. Are you sure the cable is OK?

Are you using a printer icon or ciizen command to print something? It’s an older printer and just needs a basic unidirectional or maybe bidirectional 20gx it won’t hurt to try them all.


The test page is from the printer it self not the computer, when i try to print something from the computer 200xg left click on it from the desktop or but using the tab in the top left side and I get nothing the cables are the ones that came with the printer I actually have two printers citizen gx and a epson LQ both will do test prints from the printer it self but nothing will print from the computer. You need to select the correct type of parallel port in the BIOS for the printer to work correctly.

The information on Computing. Yeah, how is the parallel port configured in bios setup?

Citizen gx need help. 200gxx need help fast! Your the best thanks again. Try going to the FILE option in the top left of your screen and select print there. Since most printers now are USB, default seems to be having the parallel port disabled, if it’s even there at all.

Check device manager and see if any problems show there.
