    Mitch,

    What you are reporting would indicate there could be a failure/damage on the breakout board, cable, or parallel port. Two ways of troubleshooting this may be:

    - Swapping pins, test other pins on the BOB.
    - Swap componentes, use a different parallel port, cable, breakout board.
    - Use a multimeter to try and measure the signal on the DB25 on the breakout board.
    - Measure continuity on the pins of the cable.
    - Test the parallel port using a jumper cable.

    I know all this is not easy, but that would be the path.

    Switched the probe out for another input pin. It works now. I checked the DB25 cable and there seems to be a bad pin. I'll replace it in the next couple days and let you know if that was it. Thanks for everything.

    The new DB25 cable came in today. Hooked it in and the digitizer light is finally working. Now all I need to do is install a program to run the probe. Can anyone suggest a place to find
    one?
