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

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.

Printing Error


you're problem is not with the printer. It is the set up you are using in the program you are sending to print for example: in InDESIGN after you hit apple P for the print command you will have a dialog box that says printer (the middle top) you will need to select your printer also at the bottom there is a printer button which must also be selected with your printer. Whatever program you are running will need to be set to the printer you are printing to. if you do not see your printers ID you will need to "add printer" and search out the proper driver for your printer.
