Atari SLM 804 Laserprinter and Panasonic Drum kit?

Postby 1st1 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 8:38 pm

Hello, I am searching for an information about a replacement drum kit for the SLM 804. As it is known, the SLM is originally an TEC LB-1301 printer with different interface and chassis design/color. Some time ago I collected a list of all printers from OEM brands which used the TEC LB-1301 mechanics and probably electronics. The idea was to make it easier to find spareparts, drum kits and toner. I did also the same for SLM-605 which originally is a TEC LB-1305. While it is not impossible for the 605 to get drum kits and toner over ebay sellers or other sources as ATARI, Olivetti, Xerox or Mannesmann branded, it was until now impossible for me to get something for the 804.

Soon I will get another fully working 804, except for the drum kit which is very weakm so it prints, but allmost unreadable. But that guy told me that there is a drum kit from Panasonic which would fit, and which still should be available. But Panasonic does not exist on any compatibility lists for the 1301 mechanics. Does anybody here knows something about that? The interesting information would be the model name of that Panasonic printer (series).

By the way, the compatibility list for 804 and 605 so far as I collected it until now: http://wiki.newtosworld.de/index.php?title=SLM-804

Charles, which of the two printers do you have? The weak point on 804 is the heating unit, no idea where to get spares for that. The weak point for 605 is it's power supply, probably dryed capacitors. Additionally 605 has a countdown module, which you have to replace with the drum kit. Sometimes I have seen 1305 compatible drum kits on ebay without that module. New drum kit with old module won't print, and nothing found on how to reset that modue. You first should test, both printers would start with empty toner. At least for 804 you also could buy a cheap plastic bottle of Xerox "universal toner" which can be used to refill 804's toner box, Xerox also offers "developer", that is fine iron pulver which has to be added to the toner from time to time (Atari sold "initial toner" for that purpose, what is a mixture of toner and iron powder). But all of that does not make sense if the drum is too weak, you won't see well what has been printed.

I have 2 x SLM 605 boxed toner cartridges and i think it contains 2 x toners?

and 1 x SLM 804 boxed toner cartridge, not sure if it contains 1 or 2 toners

I can upload some pics next week if that helps

Also note that even though these are new and sealed, they are 30 years old so i have no idea at all if they are still any good, ie: maybe the ink has dried out?

I've a SLM 605, with broken PSU.
Is there someone who can repair this ?

Also, I didn't found some diagrams of the PSU in the service manual.


Kind regards,

Mark
