View Full Version : LaserWriter help

18th March 2004, 11:24 PM
I have a LaserWriter II NTX, which isn't working.

Originally I stopped using it as it was not taking paper from the feeder tray.

Now, when I turn the printer on, it does not warm up like usual, but instead the paperjam & no paper lights come on.

There is no paper jam.... there is paper in the cartridge...

Anyone know what I can do to fix this? No one around here (Darwin NT) will touch it.

When you say this, does that mean that the LW doesn't become warm after a while? Leave it on for 15 minutes, and if you're fuser doesn't warm up it could be that. Or, something simple like the paper pick-up roller might be worn out. I'de clean the rollers/paper detection switch with Isopropyl Alcohol wipes.

Also, try reseating the SIMMS on the NTX's logic board.

This site (http://home.att.net/~t.f.cook/tc12.htm) outlines the error codes (that is, the combination of flashing lights) on a Laserwriter.
