Oh yeah, *those* messages. I did have those too.
As a last gasp effort, I gave my LJ4+ a thorough cleaning and replaced
the rollers for the output feed in the back. And hey, it seems to be
working now! The way it had been sounding, I was sure I'd broken
something the last time I replaced the toner cartridge after clearing a
paper jam. But maybe I just didn't have the cartridge properly
So now I'm looking into ways to adapt it to use a network connection.
