Thanks, that is just what I was suspecting. But since I get my printers
from the thrift shop for $5-$10 its hardly worth replacing a power
supply. I will just wait until the next one comes along. And, I think
I have at least three more down in the basement so I will try a few
more. Maybe swap a power supply from one that has some other problem.
 If they all give 50 SERVICE error then I will just save the ink and
wait until another one pops up at the thrift shop. At $5- $10 each,
they are always worth that to get the half full ink cartridge out of them.
