Apple Apple StyleWriter II

LaserWriter II EEROM Integrity BAD!

Message in subject line appears on my printer's configuration page. Is there any way to resolve this?

I had disabled the printer's startup page many years ago with the Apple Printer Utility from the early to mid-'90s. Today the startup page mysteriously began printing again every time I turn on the printer. Along with other information the startup page reports how many total pages the printer has printed, and this number has reset to 0.

The printer works just fine except for my inability to disable the startup page. If the EEROM is bad, how does this affect the operation of the printer? Is it important that I fix this? How do I do it?
That would involve replacing the main logic board. If all the problems that you're having is one wasted sheet on startup, it would be cheaper to live with it.

Thanks for your reply, Moe. I had come to that conclusion after I read another post on the Apple support forum. It said "there is nothing you can do about it, but it doesn't affect the operation of the printer." I appreciate learning I could replace the logic board. I didn't know whether the EEROM was on that IIg board or somewhere else inside the printer. IF I can find one cheap, I may replace it. The last time I bought one (7 or 8 years ago), it was about $70, but I couldn't find one at any price on eBay today.

Correction: What I actually read was a posting by Marc on the fixyourownprinter.com printer forum from July 2003. It said,

"Nothing you can do about it. Doesn't in any way render the printer unusable."

I had to give credit where credit is due.
