Have loads of second hand Brother HL 5240 printers,think they are about £20 each and think postage is around a £5.and have at least 60% ink in them.

I know a few clubs that have used these second hand printers,hope this helps.give them a call.

The 5240 has been a good printer for ETS use, the only negative is the lag time between finishing unikon base station prompts and the printer to start printing, must be around 6-10 seconds, Taurus system is even slower with a lag time of 12+ secs before printing begins.


If anyone knows of a faster printer then it would be great to know for when club is going to renew??

Our club has this printer - anybody know which connection is used ( on the back of the base station) when installing the printer driver?


There is a choice of about 10!!


Select the port your printer is connected to











XPS Port


UNIKON offer no help....!


We are assuming that - because it is a parallel port - it will be one of the LPT options - any help anyone?

(Parallel port to printer - and parallel port to base station - it will not be connected directly to the laptop)

I thought the idea of a parallel printer port to parallel printer port was it uses a computer language so no drivers need to be installed
