Have a multimeter? You might want to check the line voltage going in -- you
might be suffering from low voltage. It happens frequently at my house...
I'm just down the road from our 105-year-old hydro plant, and while after a
century it's doing an admirable job, sometimes power's not quite up to par.
(on the good side, tho: as I'm so close, my section of town is usually the
first to get power resorted in the event of an outage.)

Note, this says *minutes* - not seconds. Also, if they're on at the same
time, on the same circuit, it's probably the circuit that's at fault, not
the printers... You might want to see what else is on that circuit that
might have a decent current draw, and the power company can't keep up...

By the way - not sure how long you've been with the list, but if not, I'll
give you a tip: Just because cctalk is unmoderated, doesn't mean it won't
be commented on! Just the opposite -- *Everything* gets commented on here,
the good, the bad, and *especially* the ugly. ;-)

My previous post was but a friendly reminder... [[ If you'll note, I
haven't changed my .sigs, either... ;-) ]]
