Apple LaserWriter 8500 not turning on

I have an Apple Laserwriter 8500 which decided to just not turn on one day. Absolutely nothing happens when turned on. Does this mean it is the power supply(internally) if such a thing? or could it mean something else??? I checked the wires and plugs everything seems to be okay as far as connections, etc.
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks, D.

There is a glass-tube fuse inside, near the power switch that blew on mine a couple of years ago. Being the curious type, I popped off the side cover to see if there was any obvious reason, loose connectors, burned resistors, etc., and found the blown fuse. Can't remember where I got the replacement, but think it was Radio Shack. It's a common type.

Laserwriter 8500 prints splotches all over the page.


Toner bubbles are characterized by large blotches of color toner on
printed pages caused by color toner leaking from cartridges directly
onto the transfer drum.

Solve the problem of toner bubbles by checking the manufacturing
codes on the toner cartridges and replacing cartridges as needed. Compatible carts are notoroius for this so don't use them.

Heat-stamped on the toner cartridge, opposite the label-end of the
cartridge, is a manufacturing code. If a portion of the code does not
match the list below, replace the toner cartridge.

Use toner cartridges that contain any of the following manufacturing
codes:
 9I
 9J
 9K
 9L
 and any cartridge that begins with the numbers 0 through 6 in place of
the 9

PSC 2175 wont work with print server


Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

Description
LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.

In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.

Requirements

· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.

· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer

· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)

· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:

- LaserWriter 8500
- LaserWriter 16/600 PS
- LaserWriter 12/640 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/660 PS Procedure

1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu.
2.Open up the Utilities folder
3.Now open up the Print Center
4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add.
5.On the following screen, select LPR printing.
6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address.
7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer.
8.Select the printer model.
9.The completed settings should be similar to the following:
(LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER)
10.Click on Add
11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.

12/640 Laserwriter - driver needed.


I had the same problem when I got a new computer with Vista. I just went through the available 600 DPI printer drivers until I found one that worked ok with the 12/640 printer. The driver I used was the Samsung 6000 PS. I have had no problems with it.

Turns on and sends out test page


This means I believe that the thermistor, or possibly the fuser, has failed. Our 8500 is in exactly this state at present. It occasionally works for a few pages after it is turned on, then it stops when the two rear LEDs turn on.
We had a new thermistor fitted but this has not resolved the issue. Not currently clear whether the new thermistor was incorrectly fitted, the base had to be filed to fit and it may not be close enough to the hot roller, or whether we have a more fundimental problem.
Any other views on this?
Thanks

A slight burning smell from the fuser region ...


Although a faulty thermistor could be to blame for the fuser running above target temperature, the usual explanation for a slight burning smell is a bit of paper debris stuck inside the fuser, slowly scorching away to nothing.

Won't print tabloid paper


I had this problem a couple of years back and took the printer to a service company. They replaced the paper pickup rollers and I have not had the problem since. Other problems, yes, but not that problem.
