Apple Apple LaserWriter 360

Apple Laserwriter select 360--endless startup

I hooked up my LW360 to my XP PC some months ago, and it's been working quite well after toner cartridge replacement. Today, however, when I turn on the printer it prints an ?endless series of pages with a few lines of random characters. I can't stop it without turning off the printer and unhooking the parallel cable. If I turn on the printer, it goes to standby, but once I reconnect the parallel cable, the printing starts anew. I tried bebooting without luck. I tried removing the printer and reinstalling it, without luck. I tried changing the roatry switch without luck. Any ideas?
