Default DATA Port on the CE T35bl

How do you use the data port on the T35BL? I have a DB9 Male and Female Cable. I connect the Male end to the Charger, Female End plugs into a DB9 to DB25 Coverter. Then the Null Modem Male End plugs into the Converter and the Printer Cable plugs into the Female end of the Null Modem. Every time I try and print the graph of my Cycle it says that my printer is offline. I have even tried connecting the DB9 wire straight into the Serial Port on my Computer to see if the charger will put a file on the computer but it says to "Check Cable" Anyone have any luck with this? I have a LaserJet 6L Printer.

Hey Mike, I own the same charger and I get the same readings on the display if I try to connect it to my canon bubble jet printer. Yeah, after I got it I went out to comp usa and bought all the converters and cables but had no success with printing. After that I got online and started asking around why this is happening, I beleive someone from rcracing.com told me that you have to have a dot matrix type printer for the charger to print (that is if your going straight to the printer). I've been meaning to email CE about it but its been slippin my mind. Hope this helps.

I had the same trouble. However, if you are using a windows type product, your computer came with a nifty demo product called Hyperterminal.

Bring up Hyperterminal, and configure a new connection for COM1, or COM2 (which ever you happen to be using) with the recomended connection speed and settings, and ask it to connect.

It will sit there and wait for data.

Then on the Turbo35, ask it to print the data to a PRINTER not COMP. COMP mode is encoded for the turbolabel software, but printer mode will actually dump to Hyperterminal.

From there, you can copy and paste for printing.

To use the printer function you need a serial printer....

Most people take the info into Hyperterm or other comm. program....

You can buy serial to parallel adapter....

Hope this helps...
