I have an old laser printer, HP LaserJet 2100, with 2 ports:
- a parallel port;
- an 8-pin mini-DIN female "LocalTalk port" connector:
I am using a Raspberry Pi as a network print server. The Pi is connected to the parallel port via a USB-to-Parallel cable. Raspberry Pi is powered by a micro-USB connector and cable.
I was thinking of finding or making a DIN8-to-Micro-USB power-only cable.
Does the extra DIN8 port supply (enough) power that can be used to power the Pi?
If so, what would the correct pinout be?
