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

My suggestion is to install the printer a second time. This way you will not be prompted to delete drivers no longer in use.
Just name the second printer "copy 2".
Try printing a test page, if it works, delete your original and rename copy 2 to Panasonic Printer.

I sincerely hope someone has given you an answer that has worked by now but, if you are still looking at the same problem. The only thing they didn't tell you to do is to exit Windows, shut down the PC, turn off the Printer, and wait five to ten minutes or even better over-night, and try again in the morning.

Dear Friend

My name is James, I am still learning the A+ course about Hardware, so I will try to get you out off the problem.
First of all, What is your computer Processor? Even, try to reboot your computer ( Shut it down ) and turn it on again.If the computer boots normaly, means the computer loads normaly your operating system ( Windows 98 ) but it does not print your document, in that case it maight be a problem of your printer. So for that, turn your printer off, and check all the connections from the computer to the printer ( we call it parallel cable ), if you are sure it is good, try to find out if your printer software ( device driver ) was installed successfully, to do that go to START menu, SETTINGS, PRINTER, ADD, click ADD,choose the printer name ( on the left column), and the printer reference ( on the right column), if you do not see your printer model in the list, you need to install it once again. Remember, when you buy a device such as printer or CD drive, a CD ROM or Floppy disks co
