Hello NeXT Community: So I just spoke to a customer Greg that was the system admin for 300 NeXTstations and matching printers on a government network back in the day. He used to have to print out up to 2000 page documents using a NeXT laser printer for the secretary of state in a Ohio state .
As we all know "your paper is jammed in your printer ", is a common problem.
Ah but he has a solution that he said used to workl like a charm and I'm sure as heck going to try it now.
The key he says , buy specifically Laser Printer Paper which is higher quality and thicker (Georgia Pacific) and then microwave it, an inch to 1 1/2" stack at a time for 15 to 20 seconds this removes any moisture and humidity.
Make sure the microwave is clean obviously and with any luck it should work.
I have replacement intake rollers $15, Exit gears $10 as well as rejuvenate for rubber $15 a can and even complete NeXT printers starting at $100 as well so potentially we may have away to awaken them again! Please let me know if you have success and I'll make a video as well for my youtube.com/robblessin channel. Best regards Rob Blessin Also complete Factory manual and Trouble shooting and repair guides here http://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Docs/Hardware/
Did he happen to say what weight/bond the paper needs to be for best functioning, other than just being "thicker"?
In my experience, there are good results with 100 or 120 gr. paper.
Getting my printer going is on my to-do list; I need to source a paper tray somewhere first.
