Recently picked up an HP Laserjet 4050TN on e-bay for £60 (which had a page count of 130000 or so - service intervals of 200000). It printed small text OK, but V large (96pt) showed some fading. So after digging around, it appeared that it probably needed servicing. I managed to get a full HP maintainence kit from e-bay for £75.
I've just done the service and the printer now seems to print excellently on large and small text (it even shows up stuff like the shading and watermarks from the config menu/test pages nice and clearly). I figured that £135 for an effectively refurbed 4050tn is not too bad.
Anyway, I'm now left with a fuser assembly that can also be refurbished (recycled if you like). The prices for just a fuser seem to be about the £50 to £70 mark, so I figure it's got to be worth £15 to £20 or so.
I remember seeing a couple of ad's on the net for companies buying old fuser's for refurb/resale (which I now can't find) and I wondered if any of you might have any links/suggestions/advice for me to be able to pass it on (preferably for the £15 to 20 or so).
I'd really rather try to make some use of it, but as I'm not any kind of "wheeler/dealer" any info would be greatfully appreciated.
