Question about Panasonic KX-P2130 24-Pin Impact Printer

1 Answer

Print is very light and I put in a new ribbon. This printer is hooked to a parallel port on an AVAYA phone system terminal. I don't believe there is an option to download drivers. Not sure why the new ribbon isn't working as I can see the print very very light on the page.

    Since I had NO manual for the printer, I just started messing with the knobs. There was a page gap indicator knob and I set that to the lowest setting and I can now see my print. I'm not sure how long the printer ribbon will last, but it did solve the problem

Hi
Check if the ribbon is seating correctly, the Avaya PBX does not have a driver for this that is correct also some printers have a "draft"setting make sure this is off as the printer will only go once over the print in draft

I have two identical 4420 printers. suddenly one prints much slower than the other. What mechanism needs replacing? I don't have any manuals or anything


I think parallel port issues. Assuming your fastest printer connected to onboard parallel port. connect slow printer on pci2parallel port.

Dell 2330dn - my printer won't print my work. It keep reading Parallel busy. What does this mean?


How is this printer connected to your computer? Is it connected by a parallel/centronics cable, or USB, or perhaps not connected physically at all, but via network (it's a network-capable printer)?

Also, you don't specify the operating system.

I would guess, that it was installed on the LPT (parallel) port, instead of a network port, and because in reality nothing is connected to the parallel port it is producing an error (explaining why it's called busy would be long and boring).

Anyway, please either check the setting of the port to which this printer is printing (find that in Printer Properties), or be more specific as to what your current situation is.

Printer prints test pages but will con print from


Has this printer ever worked? If so, what changed between its working and failing

What is your method of connection, parallel port, serial port, USB 1 or 2 ports?

Are you running stand-alone tests to it or are you printing the test page from the operating system? What operating system do you have installed and is the printer and its related software approved for this operating system?

Do you have the correct driver for this printer and operating system?

Can your PC see (identify) that it has a printer attached to it?

Can not print with Epson LX-300


The USB to parallel converter does not always work.

You should buy a Parallel port for your computer if you have can extra slot inside the machine. The cost for the parallel port is usually under $20.

My print out cat read some line very light and some line very dark priner is tally genicom 2348


I would recomend the following;

  1. Check the ribbon is seated correctly in the printer
  2. Check the ribbon is not jammed or tight to move
  3. Check the print head gap, ensure this is not trapping the ribbon
  4. Change the ribbon for a new one
  5. Check the ribbon drive is ok

No response from 105Se


if the data light comes on and nothing prints chances are that the serial settings are set improperly. all of my printers are 25 pin serial, not parallel. i don't have one in front of me but i believe the settings are 19200, 8, 1, none. hope this helps.
