Centronix733+IBMPC=FIRE Why?

If you connect an Atari 825 printer to a PC, the printer fries itself.
This is an OEM Centronics 733 printer. Why does it make smoke? I've
burned three printers and know my signals/cables are correct. I've run
tons of printers off ataris that weren't atari printers. Why does this
printer call the fire dept when connected to the PC??

P.S. I've one more that works perfectly so I can
experiment.................................. I will produce the pinouts
for each machine, but wanted instant gratification.....

Regards all,
