Apple Apple StyleWriter II

LaserWriter II- Fuser light if ACpwr module broke?

I replaced a AC power module on a LaserWriter IIg last night. The unit fired right up and printed a new page. I took it off my work bench and hooked it up to my network. When I powered it up again, it went back to two blinking lights.

I am now wondering if I received a bad power module (from ebay) or I have a bad fuser. If the AC power module is still bad, will the fuser bulb light? Can a bad fuser generate a fine test page on one try and cause errors later?

Here are some other observations:

-I hear a power supply click after about 30 seconds from power up.
-I didn't see a fuser light while looking into the unit with the cover open.
-Apple printer utility status "attempting to fix temperature problem" message. A
-Upon switching unit on, the green ready light blinks for upto a minute before the red blinking lights take over.
-The unit has been set up to NOT print a test page.

I have 2 other non-functioning LWIIs that I can steel fuser assemblies from. But I want to know if I should suspect a bad fuser assembly in my main machine.

The fact that you did get a test page pretty much eliminates a fuser assembly. I wouldn't trust anything I bought on EBay. Try swapping out the power supplies. If that don't work, see our tweaking page in the troubleshooting section.

I have the same problem too. Mine does the same like the below:
-I hear a power supply click after about 30 seconds from power up.
-I didn't see a fuser light while looking into the unit with the cover open.
-Apple printer utility status "attempting to fix temperature problem" message. A
-Upon switching unit on, the green ready light blinks for upto a minute before the red blinking lights take over.

How can I resolve this?? Please help.

Thanks,
Rick

Tami,

You need to open a new thread, this thread deals with a totally different machine type.

PLEASE read the posting rules when you open the new thread.

Thank you,
Stephen

It's been years since I have worked on the above model but do remember seeing a good power supply go bad due to another component/assembly.
