Printer for Dicon 400

Post by Cityopticians » Mon Apr 15, 2019 5:26 pm

Hi, I need a replacement printer for my Dicon 400.

It’s the Canon BJ or BJC.

Does anyone know of a better option with this Dicon?

Ooops , I am dreading the day my BJC200 dies , already had the transformer fail but managed to source a new transformer . I spent days trawling every site I knew of to source a spare but no joy .
I know of this device

Sounds right but Im a tight git and didnt want to order in case it does not work , then again Amazons returns policy is second to none

Hi,

The ipt2usb may work. To save cost just get a ipt1usb and a male to male 25pin DSUB. Total Cost £6

I'll try it and give an update.

Isn’t the ipt1usb for connecting old printer to newer pc with a USB port not the other way round.
I’ve ordered a ipt2usb and will let you know if it works

Hanson wanted 700 pounds to allow USB port for my dicon
