For the LaserJet Series II, "50 SERVICE" is likely to be the power
supply. It's less likely to be the fusing station. The power supply
would be about $30-$70 for a replacement part, which is not that hard
to replace yourself if you can work a screwdriver. Webby URLs to
check for more information include <http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/>

For my money, replacing the power supply and keeping a 15-year-old HP
printer gives me more warm fuzzies than buying inkjet cartridges from
today's HP. And I like the control panel on the LaserJet II a lot
better than what passes for one on the LaserJet 2100 at the office;
for example, I can tell whether the LaserJet II is online and whether
it has something in its buffer.

Could you please trim excessive quoted text in your e-mail replies?
