Hi, I recently acquired a Panasonic dot-matrix printer (I'm very stuck in my ways when it comes to technology). The printer advertises itself as "Quiet", though when printing can be heard several rooms away with the doors closed. I'm aware matrix printers are generally loud, however, when I pull the paper tight as it comes out, the unit can barely be heard whilst printing. This makes me think there's a specific way of loading it or an add-on? Or do I just have to pull the paper tight whilst it prints? The issue seems to be the sound reverberates through the paper whilst it prints.
It's a Panasonic KX-2023: as you can imagine there's not much help on Panasonic's website as the unit is from around 1991, although I have managed to find a manual for it, but it mainly tells you how to load tractor-feed paper rather than single A4 sheets.
Has anyone had experience with one of these before?
