I have a wide (132-column) Toshiba dot matrix printer I picked up for
a few bucks at a flea market (as part of a package deal). It needs a
new printhead. A couple of local computer stores want $100 to replace
the printhead, and attempts to contact Toshiba about it only led to a
900-number, voice mail jail.

Any ideas on what I should do with it?
