Re: AVTS Printer Error Message

Of 18 machines tested in today's Logic and Accuracy 6 of them choked during the printing and are hosed at that point.  If a machine has this problem, it seems to continue to have the problem.  Shutting it down and bringing it back up doesn't appear to be much help. 
What leads me to believe that its hardware related (maybe some memory limit) is that some of the printers choke at the same point.  Others seem to choke at different points.  Not consistent enough to tell what's happening, but I've seen three units print 1 signature line and then part of race 60 and then stop with the No Name Error message.

    This message comes from the WinNT print manager.  I think there may be a hardware problem on that unit.  Ian had mentioned a while ago that on some units the power connection to the printer would shake loose and the printer would stop printing.
Ian do you have any comments?

I Set one AVTS unit for Election.
Started running zero report.  It printed an inch of the report.
Then came up with this error:
    Error writing to LPT1: for document no name document name: The requested resource is in use.  Do you wish to retry or cancel the job?
Any ideas on what to do?
