Well, I had some exposure to a Phaser III, but it's been a while, and I
don't think I've ever seen anything like the above message.

I suppose you've gone through the whole "check the cables, make sure
nothing's stuck, check for grilled cheese in the ink-wells" thing? (The one
I used, at least, was a thermal transfer printer. Very nice.)

I might also suggest removing the cables, and if there's a NIC, pulling it
to see if that's the fault location.

Otherwise, it's unfortunate that most people/institutions don't have the
good taste to purchase such printers ;) I'd have liked to have more
exposure to them.
