Atari Unix

I am trying to resurect some ancient HP laserjets. Two Laserjet II's
and one Laserjet 4v. Prior to failure they were all three running fine
and giving nice output. Then each just stoped and began to give the same
error message, "50 Service". Just what does this mean? Is it a
counter that has to be reset or is there really something wrong with
them. If the latter I am going to pull the ink cartridges and set them
out by the curb. If the former, can someone shed some light on the
correct procedure to get them going again.
