HP Laserjet IIIP useful life
I picked up a Laserjet IIIP at a thrift store for $20USD the other day. It seemed to print a test page fine at the store and I was able to install it on my home network, printed windows setup pages from all 4 computers just fine. After about 45 minutes I started getting error 52. I see I can get a kit here to fix this problem. What I would like to know is this: This printer has a little over 30,000 pages printed through it. Is it worth it to fix the scanner motor problem or should I junk it? What is the usable life of this printer?
