If the print head isn't dead you should be good.  If it is or needs 
work, they're like $1300.

You also should never adjust certain aspects of the printhead without 
the special diagnostic cable, the head to drum gap adjuster, the 
service manual, and the diagnostic floppy.  It's much better to replace 
this printer with an 860 or newer at some point because A. they waste 
much less ink B. the diagnostics are onboard.

If you are going to use the printer, don't turn it off often. (They're 
meant to run all the time or they clean themselves too much)
