Question about Panasonic Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Winxp home printer dirvers are not compatible with the windows 98 drivers so when you update to xp you lose your printer. Any thing you print winds up in the print spooler but can't get thru LPT1 to the printer. MicroSoft knew this was going to happen when they released the xp windows series. Thier arguement was that it would take to long and be to expensive to rewrite all those printer drivers. So here millions of people are with out thier printers. The problem is widely thought to be corrupt spooler files or a bad LTP1 port but it just is not true. I have a Panasonic KX-P1180 that I've been looking all over the web for for over a year and evevy time I find some one who touts to have the answer and offers a free down load and I try to use what ever it I downloaded I can vision the ******* that wrote the **** laughing his head off. I'ts discusting! If you have any good ideas or suggestions please share them with me. Thanks John Dahle [email protected]

John,
This is business. You keep making newer products discarding the old ones. However, MS is not making everything. It is the producers of those non MS products to keep pace with the operating systems. Your grudge against them is understandable but try to understand their points of view too.

Here is an excerpt from one of the sites
Has this printer ever operated properly with this computer with the Windows
XP operating system?

If no:

The usual problem that gives the symptoms you describe is the setting for
the LPT port in the computer's BIOS. If set for EPP or ECP or ESC&EPP, it
can happen that the data is sent to the printer too rapidly.

The fix at your disposal is to change the setting for the port the printer
uses to standard parallel port. The language used for the setting differs as
between BIOSs. Look for something like SPP, bi-directional printer port,
standard or the like.

OK out and save the setting change.

Allow the computer to re-boot.

Trying to install HP Deskjet 712c on computer with windows xp


You shouldn't need any software to print to this printer under XP, just let XP find the best or closest match to your printer and install it. It might be a Deskjet 700 or something but it'll work as a printer. The old software was probably for Windows 98.

Not supports bi-directional printing on win98 + winxp network


this is compatability problem. You should install your printer on Windows XP system. Then make it share for all. I think it will print from both 98 and XP. try this.......good luck.
