I have just purchased a Canon Multipass C20 printer/fax/copier/scanner with my new pentium system. I have and intermittant problem with the printer dropping out. One minute its there and printing the next my system tells me there is no printer attached to the LPT port. I have tried changing systems and cables and still have the same problem. I have a pentium II 350 with 128mg Ram running win98. The error message reads as follows:-
The Multipass hardware could not be initialised.
The connected device may not be the same as the Multipass device that was installed. Please check your setup and configuration to make sure that the Multipass system connected matches your installation.
The thing is that I can lose the printer whilst printing a run between one page and the next.
I'm hoping that someone out there has had a similar problem.
