LaserWriter IINT Problem - "Printer Needs Servicing."

I am running a LaserWriter IINT with a PowerPC 8500 (OS 8.1).

When I try to print I get a message "Take printer in for service."

Is there any way around this?

I think it has a set amount of pages it can print before that message
comes up, is there a way to reset the memory or something of that sort?
Both of the redlights stay on and it refuses to print.

Much Thanks,


Are the red lights on steady or blinking? If they are on steady, turn it off and pull out the logic board (2 screws in back). On the bottom, center right of the printer, you'll see a small 4" long L shaped piece of plastic. Put your fingers under it and pop it off. Beneath it is an engine test. Power up the printer and after it warms up, stick something in the hole. If it does an engine test (sheet with lines on it) you'll have to replace the logic board.
