Question about Apple LaserWriter 8500 Printer
My LW8500 will print 8.5x11 from the cassette but won't print tabloid from the manual feed. It displays a paper jam light but never attempts to pick up the 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.

Tips for a great answer:
Error 5C10 means a paper jam or the printer has encountered an internal error. And error 6A00 is caused due a paper jam in the sheet feed unit or near the print head. You can also reset the printer to resolve this issue. On the printer press and hold the ON/OFF button or unplug the power cord. Wait for 10 seconds, press power button ON/OFF button again. If this doesn't resolve the error code then unplug the printer for 10 minutes. Also, inspect the back panel of the printer for any paper jams. To clear the paper jams---
Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord
and USB cable. Remove the jammed paper slowly using the following procedure.
Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed. Pull out the cassette and
check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Stand the printer with
the rear side down, holding the document cover. Press the tabs together and
pull the green cover toward you. Check if the paper is jammed. (If you were not
doing Duplex printing, you do not have to follow this procedure.) Close the
green cover and place the printer back to a normal position. Reconnect the
power cord and power on the printer. Confirm the Alarm light is off. Load paper
back into the ASF or cassette. Press to clear the message and continue
printing. If you are printing from application software, follow the
instructions displayed on your computer. Hope this helps... Please post back if
you need more information.
Clearing credit card-sized paper jammed inside the printer
Credit card-sized and 4" x 6" sized paper must be loaded properly. If this media is not loaded properly, it will feed into the printer and will not exit. Credit card-sized paper should only be loaded in the ASF and in portrait orientation. 4" x 6" sized paper can be loaded in the ASF or cassette. But must be loaded portrait orientation.
If credit card-sized paper was loaded in landscape orientation in the ASF and did not eject (exit), please follow this procedure.
