If you have an issue with your printer, bring it to the
Landscape forum if you can't fix it from the info on these pages.
It's a great resource for many issues and it has great folks on it!
That way, you can benefit from other opinions as well.
Please remember, I have made this page for my own notes - as I get older
I forget how I fixed something, so this is a kind of journal. If
you use the information, do so at your own risk. If it works, I'm
a genius. If not, I warned you. Take care of your printer
and it will take care of you.
The best way to get long life out of the belt is
