I have paralle printer connectet to PC with USB printer adapter. When I print long document, the end of document is not printed. It means that PC does not work with busy signal or has bad time out.
Could you help me?

Hi sidlo,

You may need to check your page setup & or printer setup, look for the option for printing the document straight away, your print spool buffer area may be set incorrectly.

I hope this is of help
