Well, a couple of cached pages on Google from the Panasonic site said that there were NO Windows drivers for this printer, DOS drivers only.
Is this printer that old???
Anyway, another page said the following:

KXP-155 is compatible with the following printers
Panasonic KX-P 1524 [+]
Panasonic KX-P 1540 [+]
Panasonic KX-P 1624 [+]
Panasonic KX-P 1654 [+]
Panasonic KX-P 2624 [+]
Panasonic KX-P 3624 [+]
Roland DG PR-2450 [+]
Roland DG PR-2465 [+]

So, see if you can get drivers for any of these other printers. Try and setup the printer in XP, but don't have it autodetect the printer and drivers. Do it manually. When you get to the printer driver selection window, see if any of these other printers are in the XP driver list, and use them.
You might not get any luck, though. A lot of older hardware just does not work on XP.
Good luck.

One more thing you need to know. This printer will NOT work if you have your printer port set to ECP/EPP it must be set to Normal/Standard. This is because as of win98 before win98se Microsoft removed all support for allowing slow speed access when the port is set to ECP/EPP. As such the printer will notoriously miss characters/formatting/control-codes etc.

Either install another printer port into the pc if this is your situation and you need ECP/EPP stuff
or go into bios and make sure port is normal.

PS: I use this printer alot great for wasting boxes and boxes of paper on program coding

rick
