How long is the cables that you are using?
should not be longer that 30cm (1 foot)
Nope its approx 20cm
One good thing,ive got the soldering to a t now (unless thats the issue lol???) having redone it so many times but this is breaking my bloody heart i tell you!
Any other ideas,tried with or without resistors.
Could it be the lead or is that quite unlikely?

Is it going red immediately after plugging it in, or does it change to any other colour before getting to red?
Hi Martin,no it just goes straight to red now all the time,i think it worked for a while but now its given up lol.I was kinda (naively!) wondering if it was going to red because wires were touching which would have been good news in a sense,at least id have known iwas on the right trck,kinda!
Ill have to grab another PROPER 203w but i still think ill return with the same issue as i did have a 203 and was getting the same non detect results!
Is the Lpt settings ie DMA etc important,i understand the whole SPP thing .Ive heard of people having to set up text virtual printers or similar,do i have to go through all these different methods or should it really be quite straight forward as long as your lengths and points are in check?
I appreciate all the help guys and would love it if you could follow a dude through with this.
