95LX Locks Up In Lotus While Printing

95LX Locks Up In Lotus While Printing

I was working with Lotus and decided to retrieve a file, make some modifications, and print it. I pressed (MENU) Print Printer Align Go.

While I was viewing the WAIT massage on the top right corner of the monitor, the printer started to print the file. After some time, I realized that the print range was not proper and I turned off the printer in order to reset it. I pressed (CTRL)-(<Break>) immediately after turning off the printer, but the WAIT massage on my 95LX did not disappear. I tried (CTRL)-C and (ESC), with no success.

Finally, I disconnected the AC adapter and while the backup batteries were in the computer, I removed the MAIN batteries. As a result, the system reset itself, causing loss of everything. Now, the 95LX is working perfectly again, but I could not understand what caused this paralysis and I really want to know whether it will happen again or not and was there a way of saving the files in the system?

[I'm not sure why it locked up, but if it happens again, press (CTRL)-(<Shift>)-(ON) for a hard reboot, instead of pulling the batteries. Be sure and answer No when the hard reboot asks if you want to reinitialize the disk. This should get you out of a lock up without loosing your files. Also, there is no reason to disconnect the AC adapter when changing batteries -- Hal.]
