Imagewriter II all LEDs on, no printehead movement

Recommended Posts

I salvaged an imagewriter from a local recycler.  It's been a long time since I've used one.  When I turn mine on, there is no movement of the print head, and all of the leds turn on steady.  There is no response from any of the buttons (feed, quality, etc).  From the manual, it mentions that the red led comes on steady when there is no paper, so I've inserted a piece of paper.  Still nothing.  I think there's something wrong with it, but it's been many moons since I've had one.  Does this sound like normal behavior or abnormal behavior?  All of the macs that I have near it are sans-imagewriter software, so I can't do any further testing at the moment.

I'm pretty sure I've performed the self-tests correctly and gotten to response, so I think I'll have to open it up and trouble shoot.

There's a Larry Pina book that covers the IWII, and since those have all (AFAIK) been posted on line, you might search for it.  It's probably something like Macintosh Printer Secrets or some such.

 

Also, Tech Knight did a really good IWII repair/refurbishment thread on these forums a while back.

Thanks, those are good tips I didn't know about.

You're welcome.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.   Those of us too lazy or too busy to work on projects enjoy reading the narratives of those of you who do work on projects...
