Apple Apple LaserWriter 360

Doesn't sense paper

I just used the video (which i highly recommend) to repair the right side fade on three Apple Laserwriter Select 360 printers that were around the high school I teach at not being used. Now I have some new problems.

First: one of the printers suddenly stopped sensing the paper in the paper try and instead just sits there with the paper out light on. One minute it was working fine and then nothing. Any ideas on the cause/cure?

Second: Two of the three catridges are no good. Where can I get new ones?

Thanks in advance for all of your help.
You might have dislodged one of the paper sensor connectors while doing the repair. I think that it is mentioned in the video. It's the one below the scanner assembly on the right side. There are a lot of connectors that have to come off and they all need to be firmly seated. Those cartridges are increasingly difficult to find. If you ship us the empty cartridges, we have someone who rebuilds them for us. Send it to the address on your receipt.

Yeah, like I kept the receipt - that would require someone who is organized!
How much would it cost to get a cartridge rebuilt?

The printer worked OK for some time after I repaired it, do you still think that it's a loose sensor? If so, how do I fix it? - scapple
We can do those for $49. Address is on the Contact Us Page. The connector could have come loose from vibration if it weren't seated firmly enough. Only thing you can do is to redo the whole video.
