        Over time the pickup roller on these printers gets soft and
leaves black marks on the paper, as well as not completely feeding
the paper. Randy at ChannelU still sells repair kits for these
printers (new roller, ejection gear and ozone filter). I think he
charged me $20 for the three parts. Worn/broken ejection gears are
almost as common a problem on these pritners as the bad roller. He
also has detailed instructions on his website for installing them.
