Question about Xante ScreenWriter (Refurbished) Laser Printer
My Screenwriter3 will turn on but will not power up properly to even print a startup page, nor will it receive a print job from the computer and print. This occured a couple of weeks ago and after it was turned on an hour or two it suddenly powered up and printed the startup sheet and received jobs from the computer as normal. Two weeks went by with no problems and it suddenly did it again when I turned it on in the A.M. I tried plugging it into another wall outlet but still it stalls. There is no error message on the printer readout and it goes through initialization as normal to Ready/Idle but no normal noise and startup printout. I tried rebooting computer with no results and also had the outlets checked and they are OK. PLEASE HELP!
This can also be caused by a power supply problem, specificaly low voltage. It may be an occasional problem from your utility, or it can also be cused by the power cable to the printer not being heavy enough, or the outlet it is plugged in to may be on the same circuit as some other voltage grabbing machine.

I had a similar problem a couple weeks ago. We found that for some reason the printer was on "Pause" on our main network PC. This was of course effecting the whole network. Hope this helps!
