+Philsan Posted January 23, 2008 Share Posted January 23, 2008 (edited) I have received a new Atari XM801 dot-matrix graphic printer. The printer in itself works (I am able to do the self test) but when I try to print something from my 130XE (LPRINT) I get an error #138 (timeout). The SIO cables and printer's 2 SIO ports seem to work because I have attached 130XE and SIO2SD to the printer and SIO2SD works (in other words there is communication between computer and SIO2SD through the printer). I have also connected the printer directly to the computer without SIO2SD but I always get the error. Obviously the printer is in online mode! The printer is American (110v) and the computer is pal but I don't think this can be a problem. Is it a known problem that can be solved? Update: I have tested the printer with an Atari 800XL and it works. I have tested again the printer with the 130XE and now it works! Very strange!
