Apple pro 600 not working

I have a G3 blue and white with Mac OS 8.6. I have the pro 600 hooked up to an asante talk to make it ethernet so I can connect it into the computer. About a month ago, the printer started printing unstable, sometimes the pages came out blank, sometimes fine, but most of the time it printed these black snow lines across the pages. Last week, the printer icon disappeared from the chooser, even after I reinstalled the printer software. Also, the startup page and the engine test page showed only black snow lines. Does anyone know what this problem is? Thanks.
