Mach3 is pretty straight on LPT. I would suggest you to please go through following steps to resolve your LPT issue.
1. Are you sure that your LPT port is in working condition. You may connect an external LPT printer to quickly test your LPT port.
2. Are you sure that you are looking at the right pin at LPT port? please see following p

I am using thermal printer FTP644MCL001 and taking head up and paper sensor outputs(which are high) as interrupts and then i need to run the stepper motor.. if any 1 is not high, then it should enter LPM (low power mode) i am attaching the code.. the program is getting terminated without going into the function call.. mostly there (...)

I don't think you will be able to find any datasheet, this is probably from an oki printer and sometimes these are custom made for the printer company.
