6 pages per minute of blazing fast monchrome printing. Document quality and the price was $350.00
I however, got the printer for $150.00 (in 1996 a deal for sure). This printer served us well and as time progressed, it sat neglected on the top the desk. A new color printer took over the job as print master.
Sad- to see this dirty old warrior silent, un-used. Every reboot, the printer would rachet to life, grinding, grunting and wheeze, then wait. Poor lonely printer waiting for a print job.
Print jobs that until recently, did not come.
It's time to resurrect you- Old Printer of the Monochrome, Grandpa Laser.
Some cleaning and maintenance should do it.
Here's how I cleaned the printer, to bring it back to life.....
Step 1: CheapGeek- Gather materials
2. Isopropyl Alcohol at least 70% by volume. <70% by volume will allow the alcohol and cleaner mix to evaporate quickly with very little residue.>
3. Small spray bottle. For the mix.
4. Paper towels.
5. 1 1/2 inch paintbrush.
6. Cotton tipped swabs.
7. Vacuum cleaner or canned air.
8. Dust mask- couldn't hurt, for safety.
