Re: failure to go to sub routine

Yeah, but it's been many years since I've done anything with a printer from QBASIC. At the moment, I only have two suggestions:
Try LPRINTing something, then LPRINT CHR$(12); which is the form feed character. See if that causes it to spit out a page.
Perhaps, try OPENing "LPT1" FOR OUTPUT, and PRINT #1, etc. You might also send CHR$(12), then CLOSE the device, and see if that causes it to print...
Note: these are just ideas. I really don't know if they will work.
You're trying to print whole pages at once, right, not just a few lines at a time?
