If yours has the standard HPLJ-II paper pickup problem, you can get a
bottle of rubber renu and thoroughly clean the pickup roller and that will
usually fix your problem. if that isn't the problem, email me with what is
broken, i -MAY- have spare parts here in a LJ-II I have with a fried logic
board that I use for donor parts.
