VIC Printer Improvement

I have purchased a VIC-1525 printer and have used it with good results. However, every once in a while the printer will make a noise as if it is going to print, and then stop. The final result is that the computer hangs up and nothing is printed. Can someone explain why this is happening and how I can stop it from happening again?

The first of the VIC-1525 printers had a bug in their internal ROMs which occasionally caused the printer and computer to hang up. If you take your printer to the nearest Commodore service center, they will replace the original ROMs which will correct this problem.
