Apple pro 600 help!!

My apple pro 600 printer started printing very unstable about a month ago. With all lights working fine, first it started printing pages with snow gray lines and sometimes just blank pages. Then it started printing out gray over the start up page and gray over lines when I tried the test page. I'm suspecting that it's the formatter board. Moe, do you know where about can I purchase a formatter board or do you think it's another problem that it might have?
Hello, Vivian:

Have you tried an engine test yet? Please try that and see if the Engine test is OK or not. If it is OK, then it could be your formatter board. Go to the engine test section for procedure.

Just a thought.

Regards.

The kind of problems you describe are most likely toner cartridge related. Could also be a high voltage power supply problem. Formatter would be very low on the list of possibilities.

I just did the engine test and it appeared to have verticle grid lines with snow lines covering the top to the bottom of the page. When I tried to print a page it also has gray lines covering the entire page and I can't even see a slightest image of what it's supposed to print. If this is a high voltage power supply problem, how do you fix it? Any help would be appreciated as I'm hitting a wall with this...

I'd try a toner cartridge first. You can always use it later.
