Question about Panasonic KX-P2023 Matrix Printer

P2023 prints garbage with vista

Even though windows vista has built-in drivers for panasonic dot-matrix printers, including the kx-p2023 printer, it prints nothing but garbage. It seems definitely to be a driver problem, as I tried all of the other panasonic dot matrix drivers, and the kx-p1695 will at least give me one line of good text printing before continuously form-feeding. The Printer is good because I still use it with my old emachines T3104 under Windows XP.

Did you get the Vista driver for your machine from Panasonic? If not, it may not work. I use VM ware and run windows xp in virtual machine in order to use some of the older drivers.

Network printer printing rubbish when printed from Vista


The problem with dot matrix printers is that these are very old printers and you may not find a printer driver for them that run with Vista. If the incorrect printer driver is installed, the printer will print rubbish.
The only suggestion I can offer is to try various generic printer drivers until you find one that works. Connect it to the LPT1 printer port first and when you get it to work then set it up on the print server.
Also try Panasonic support and ask if they have a printer driver for this model printer that works with Vista.

Panasonic kx-p1121 driver


Dot matrix printers usually work with IBM compatible native drivers. I have tried similar model with Vista worked fine. You may need to perform manual installation by using LPT1 parallel port. If you cant see similar model in the list you can choose generic text printer or IBM Proprinter.

Good Luck

I NEED TO GET A DISK SO I CAN ADD TO MY COMPUTER. PANASONIC KX-P2023


If your looking for the printer driver, it should already be in the computer. Windows 2000, XP and Vista all come with the KX-P2023 driver pre-loaded. If you can't find it, you can use just about any of the KX-P2000 series drivers that are pre-loaded wqith Windows.
