My Oric does not like my Oric Printer :(

If you want to ask questions about how the machine works, peculiar details, the differences between models, here it is !
How to program the oric hardware (VIA, FDC, ...) is also welcome.

My Oric does not like my Oric Printer :(

Post by Godzil » Sun Apr 14, 2013 12:35 pm

That's strange, when I connect the official Oric Printer (Atmos colored) the keyboard start to work erratically, or I should say some key of the keyboard does not behave the way they should. For exemple right shift will display a *, but lots of other will still work correctly..

I know that the printer port and the keyboard sadly shares some line on the PSG and the VIA (what a pity) but this should not happen or maybe my printer have something bad.

Does someone know about such a bug? Or do I have to check my hardware?

By the way does someone find a way to buy compatible ballpen for thoses printers?

Hello
Did you try to connect the centronics wire without the printer?

Try sharpmz.org you can perhaps find some pencils for the printer

I'm still unable to use both Atmos and the printer, but I've found this!

I wish I still had my MCP 40, it was very a nice little printer: Could probably even transform it as a base for 3d printing :D
