Ever since February, two months after we got a Cyrix 686 P-150+ computer,
my Panasonic KX-P2123 has been acting very erratically. For example,
sometimes it will work fine on Windows WordPad and not on Microsoft Works
word processor. To clarify the problem, I can't get it to print Draft or
Letter Quality. I tried over the next 4 months or so I reinstalling the
driver over and over again, and every time I printed a text page it would
work, but when I wanted to print something in Draft or Letter Quality it
starts to print and then stalls. A message comes up saying "A timeout
error occurred. To increase the timeout settings for your printer. open
the Printers folder, click the icon for your printer, click the File menu,
and then click Properties. To continue printing, click retry. Windows
will automatically retry after 5 seconds."
I have done this on a number of occasions and it never works. I have been
in touch with a variety of computer stores, including the one where we
bought it. I've tried everything they've suggested and it still doesn't
work. I did get a little help from a computer solving firm, resulting in
downloading a driver for a Panasonic KX-P2180, which worked for a while,
but this past July, it conked out.
I am using Windows 95 version 4.00B, if anybody else who has this version
and the same printer as I is having the same problems as I and has solved
them, please let me know!!
