1980's Panasonic electronic TYPEWRITER as PRINTER (using KX-R60adapter)


B

Does anyone still have the instruction pamphlet for the Panasonic KX-
R60 electronic typewriter - computer printer adapter? I need the
complete list of control codes to set up the Windows generic text
printer driver.

(I can get BOLD text to work but not underline -- unless I underline
the whole print job; also want to be able to change type pitch on-the-
fly from 10-12-15)

Thank you!

My opinion is that you're trying to do this a very hard way. Much easier
just to buy a used modern printer. Most daisy-wheel printers (some
typewriters too) ran too fast, and as a result, damaged themselves in
normal use. But I found that printers built by Nakajima (under their own
name and others, including Olympia) ran a little slower and safer.

It's possible that your Panasonic typewriter emulates other standard
daisy-wheel printers. I don't know -- I did use this method way back
when, but my brain is foggy: it was so long ago. But considering that
I've bought perfectly good inkjet machines at a thrift store for $10
each -- well, you can see my point. This post is not a put-down, by the
way. In fact, I'd like to know why you want to do this. I might dig your
reasoning.

I have the instruction booklet and the Panasonic KX-60 device.
I can scan it if you want but I need help on how to configure the typewriter to use the adapter.
