HP Laserjet 4 - Varying Problems/Results

My WONDERFUL Lj4 that I bought new, which now has 209K pages is acting differently almost each time I turn it on. It started this behavior after I left in on overnight, which I don't normally do. Sometimes it works flawlessly and I can get some pages out of it. But it seems when it has been on for even a few minutes it stops working flawlessly and I might get a 41.2 error and the page prints with lines across it like I've seen discussed in different threads; or all the lights (Ready, On Line, Form Feed) stay on, but none of the buttons react when pressed; or none of the lights come on; sometimes no display, but Online and Form Feed are lit. You just never know! When it does print, it's perfect as it has always been in the past.
From what you describe, it would point at laser scanner related issues. That would cause the lines you describe and the 41.2 error. It's very rare that those scanners fail.
