Post Laser Printer Trouble

I just got a pretty old Blaser Star 2 laser printer from my grandpa, emulating a hp laserjet series 2 laser printer for sake of drivers. Whenever I try to print ANYTHING on it, it starts warming up, sounds like it just might print, but then it stops, and gives me a red maintenence light saying paper jam, section j0. Only one problem. There IS no paper jam in any section. It was sitting out in my garage for a month (have anything to do with it?), but it has a new toner bottle and new paper. Anybody?

Default Well...

Look for a container of sorts that acumulates the used toner. If it gets full and is not emptied then the printer will send a signal back saying something is wrong. Since you're emulating another brand name printer the error signal may be getting misinterpited.

Yeah thats true... could be if its empty too I guess?

Hmm...I wonder if theres any chance those drivers are downloadable? Just looking for you

I can't seem to find one. Is it that old?

Is it made by a company called Blaser? Or is that a mis-spelling?

I've tried searching for Blaser and blaser star 2, II, everything really and can't seem to find one

Yeah, but depending on how expensive it would be, it might not be worth it (I got a developer unit and tons of toner stuff free). Anyone find any HP laserjet series II drivers??? (I couldn't)

Your using the wrong driver though for the printer, so it is probably that, since the driver is what maeks windows understand and be able to send data to the printer to be printed in the first place, and every printer driver will be different.

What make is the one you have? Is it a Blaser (never heard of them), or is this a model of HP's or what? Your best using a driver from teh same company who made the printer if possible.

It's not the wrong driver , my printer is emulating a hp laserjet series II, so it will accept the driver for it . Besides, I can't find blaser drivers anyhow...

You would be better off taking it into a service repair shop, and getting them to sort it out. There is something in the works that is causing the malfunction, that only a service can fix...

I have a Blaser Star 2 (inherited from my Dad in 1990) and user manual.
J0 jam is a failure to pick up paper from the tray and feed it (around the gray curved guide at the back) into the print mechanism. Nothing to do with software.

This is very likely to be due to the rubber rollers which pick up the paper having gone hard and not "sticky". Mine does this periodically, I made a mechanical modification to mine so the shaft with the rollers can be removed from the RHS without needing to strip the printer down. I find rubbing some "brasso" on the rubber renews it (temporarily).

I would be possible to do it with the roller in situ (with the paper tray out).

As I'm rather familiar now with this ancient machine, I'm happy to discuss it with people if anyone is interested. Msg me.

I know this is an ancient thread, but it is one of the few useful hits one gets when searching in Google for this printer model. So I felt it was useful to add my info here.
