The Laser Writer is a laser printer with built-in Post Script interpreter introduced by
Apple Computer in 1985. It was one of the first laser printers available to the mass
market. In combination with WYSIWYG publishing software like Page Maker, that
operated on top of the graphical user interface of Macintosh computers, the Laser
Writer was a key component at the beginning of the desktop publishing revolution.
Development of laser printing:
Laser printing traces its history to efforts by Gary Stark weather at Xerox in 1969,
which resulted in a commercial system called the Xerox 9700. IBM followed this with
the IBM 3800 system in 1976. Both machines were large, room-filling devices
handling the combined output of many users. During the mid-1970s, Canon started
working on similar machines, and partnered with Hewlett-Packard to produce 1980\'s
HP 2680, which filled only part of a room. Other copier companies also started
development of similar systems.
HP introduced their first desktop model with a Ricoh engine for $12,800 in 1983. Sales
of the non-networked product were unsurprisingly poor. In 1983 Canon introduced
the LBP-CX, a desktop laser printer engine using a laser diode and featuring an output
resolution of 300 dpi. In 1984, HP released the first commercially available system
based on the LBP-CX, the HP Laser Jet.
The Laser Writer used the same Canon CX printing engine as the HP Laser Jet, and
as a consequence early Laser WriterserWriters and Laser Jets shared the same toner
cartridges and paper trays. Post Script is a complete programming language that
has to be run in a suitable interpreter and then sent to a software rasterizer program,
all inside the printer. To support this, the Laser Writer featured a Motorola 68000
CPU running at 12 MHz, 512 KB of work space RAM, and a 1 MB frame buffer.
At introduction, the Laser Writer had the most processing power in Apple’s product
line—more than the 8 MHz Macintosh. As a result, the Laser Writer was also one of
Apple\'s most expensive offerings. For implementation purposes, the Laser Writer
employed a small number of medium-scale-integration Monolithic Memories Pals,
and no custom LSI, whereas the Laser Jet employed a large number small-scale-
integration Texas Instruments 74-Series gates, and one custom LSI. The Laser Writer
was, thereby, in the same form factor (for its RIP), able to provide much greater
function, and, indeed, much greater performance, all within the very same LBP-CX
form factor, although the external packaging was, for marketing purposes, somewhat
Since the cost of a LaserWriter was several times that of a dot-matrix impact printer,
some means to share the printer with several Macs was desired. LANs were complex and
expensive, so Apple developed its own networking scheme, LocalTalk. Based on the
AppleTalk protocol stack, LocalTalk connected the LaserWriter to the Mac over an RS-422
serial port. At 230.4 kbit/s LocalTalk was slower than the Centronics PC parallel interface,
but allowed several computers to share a single LaserWriter. PostScript enabled the
LaserWriter to print complex pages containing high-resolution bitmap graphics, outline
fonts, and vector illustrations. The LaserWriter could print more complex layouts than the
HP Laserjet and other non-Postscript printers. Paired with the program Aldus PageMaker,
the LaserWriter gave the layout editor an exact replica of the printed page. The
LaserWriter offered a generally faithful proofing tool for preparing documents for
quantity publication, and could print smaller quantities directly. The Mac platform quickly
gained the favor of the emerging desktop-publishing industry, a market in which the Mac
is still important.
Problem No. 1 Why do I get an incorrect printout?
Solution No. 1 Some possible reasons are:
You may have chosen Binary encoding to print the file. Try to use ASCII encoding.
Some of the fonts in your print file may not be supported by the printer . Try selecting
laser Writer 7 instead of LaserWriter8.
Problem No. 2 Can’t find the IOPRINT+ Print Server’s name in the chooser.
Solution No. 2 Try the following:
1. Make sure that Apple Talk is on (the button next to Active is highlighted in the chooser)
2.Make sure the printer has been on and in the READY state for a few minutes.
3.Make sure the printer has not been renamed since its last appearance in the Chooser.
4.If the printer resides on a network with multiple ones, make sure the correct zone is
selected from the Apple Talk Zones box in the Chooser.
Problem No. 3 My document didn’t print to the right printer.
Solution No. 3 Check the following:
Another IOPRINT+ Print Server with the same name
may have received your print job. Use the PSTOOL to
reconfigure your IOPRINT+ Print Server name and
ensure all IOPRINT+ Print Servers have unique
Make sure your application output encode is set to
ASCII. If not, change it to ASCII.
Problem No. 4 My file doesn’t print with the correct fonts.
Solution No. 4 Try changing your printer driver to Laser Writer 7.
Problem No. 5 My EPS file doesn’t print with the correct fonts.
Solution No. 5 This is a problem that occurs in some application
programs. Try downloading the fonts contained in the
EPS file before printing the saved EPS file.
Problem No. 6 I can’t select the “Remaining from:” item in the print
Solution No. 6 If you have selected the Layout value, 2 Up, or 4 Up, you
cannot access the Remaining from: item. Choose other
Problem No. 7 A cover page prints either on the first or the last page
of the document.
Solution No. 7 Select one of these solutions
Turn the cover page feature off.
· Insert extra page breaks in your document to avoid the
cover page printing on the first or last page of your
· Install the Apple Laser Writer 7 driver. You are having
trouble printing with the Apple Laser Writer 8 driver.
