    Post Help with Parallel Port

    I just got a used 40x4 LCD from SuperMatty here unfortunately I need to do some extra soldering. Problem is, all I have is a bunch of color-coded wires from this parallel cable. Does anyone know what which color correlates with which pin?? Please help!

    There is a standard, but your cable probably doesn't follow it. You will need to use a continuity tester to pinout the cable.
