      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?

      Regards,
      Michael
