PLW NT startup problems

- all 3 lights come on
- jam flashes, paper out flashes
- all lights go off
- fan speeds up for a couple of seconds then returns to normal
- no ready light and no start page, all lights off
- fan continues to run, not able to print
Check out our Apple "all lights out" kit. I think it fits your problem perfectly.

Since replacing density board the light sequence and the fan are (I believe) back to normal.
New situation. After jam and paper light blink the ready light blinks for 30 sec before the scanner motor starts and runs for about 20 sec. Then motor and ready light shut down and both jam and paper lights blink simultaneously. Your video mentions the 2 light scanner motor problem. The apple manual mentions printer engine service. Are they the same?
Before this all happened I had to try starting it about 20 times before it would catch hold but once running it printed perfectly.

That's definitely a scanner motor. Printer engine service is a "catchall". It means anything on the printer.
