Problem with communication from computer

By amhiggs ·
Hello, my problem is my computer got shut down by accident with windows 98 up and my panasonic kx-p1124i printer open. The only thing that seems that happened was my printer keeps saying their is a time out error. I went and thought I'd increased mytimeout settings but so far it keeps saying the same thing. And it won't print my document. I'd appreciate all the help you can give me. I hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards,
Mary Higgs

First thing I recommend doing is downloading the latest drivers from panasonic's website, next I would just delete the printer from the printer folder and just re-install the printer just to be on the safe side. I highly doubt there is anything wrong with your hardware, just a software problem. This should correct it. Hope this helps.

I agree,Its sounds as though the printer drivers were corrupted when you shut down the computer and the printer was still on. Just remove the printer from the printer folder and reinstall it again. It should be fine.

Mary
When windows shuts down due to error or just improperly it will not save what is being used at the time of shutdown. Sometimes you get lucky and nothing happens, somtimes a driver or document will get corrupt, sometimes the cache will corrupt. The first thing to go after is the the driver. Delete the printer from the printer folder and re-install it. I bet it works. If not, check your connetions, while looking over the printer you may have loosened one up. Good Luck

Make sure all print jobs are out of the cue and delete the current printer and then resinstall.
