Apple Apple LaserWriter 360

Apple LaserWrtier 360

Upon turning on my old LaserWriter 360 it went thru the warmup process, but after a few seconds, only the green status light continued to blink and the printer make a continuous "clink" "clink" "clink" sound, and nothing could be printed. I turned the printer off, waited a few seconds, turned it back on, and the same process repeated itself. I would appreciate any troubleshooting suggestions. Also, on a very old previous post on this site, someone offered to email a PDF Repair Manual for this printer. If anyone still has such an offer I'd like to receive a copy. Thanks.
I'm going to give you a reality check. The printer is an old Fuji/Xerox engine. It wasn't a very good printer when it was new. Parts are impossible to obtain. I'm sure it's extremely difficult to obtain toner cartridges since so few are still operational. I, myself haven't worked on one in over 10 years, so I'm very rusty on diagnosing them. If it were in front of me, I could probably tell you what is wrong, but since there aren't any parts available, it wouldn't do you much good.
