Serial Port Pinging

Specs: Windows Vista/ XP
I have this camera that communicates with the PC using RS232 Port.
Can you please explain me how i can use the Hyper Terminal program to check that this device connected to my PC's Serial Port is Pinging or not.

You make a loop back connector to test. The loop back connects transmit to receive and anything your send out returns to your terminal (be sure not to confuse the local echo feature).

By the way, I have almost never seen a rs-232C port go bad. It is almost always the port speed and settings that are wrong.
