I am considering it but as my only source for a cartridge seems to be eBay
it may not make much of a difference either way (in terms of having to wait
for it to arrive and wondering if that's any good.. :)). I am going to order
a cartridge anyhow and in the mean time I may just recap the board for good
measure. Since this is not my usual cup of tea ordering parts is a pain. I
am ordering one offs and then paying for S&H so the total cost is a pin
compared to some guys who just have supplies in bins around...

Yes they are. Currently all of my main printers are rescues: a Color LJ
5500HDN, LJ 2100, LS 4Si and this one which is actually going to a family
member once I can guarantee trouble free printing...
