I'm looking for a home office solution for B&W laser printing, scanning, copying (in approximately that order of importance, with the ability to fax coming in a very distant fourth). I'd like to spend less than $350. Network connectivity nice but not critical. Pony optional. Suggestions? Am I doomed to a choice between an endless string of near-disposable crappy all-in-one desktop models and far-out-of-budget business class maintenance contract solutions?
I'm wondering if this is even possible... my client wants to be able add the ability to select from the list of available printers; a remote fax machine. The original file will be quickbooks invoices. All my searches turn up what seem to be really old 'almost' solutions.
I have a Canon MX320 multifunction copier/printer/scanner/fax. The ink cartridges don't last very long, so I refilled them. But, I can't get it to recognize that the cartridge is now full. Am unable to reset it. Have looked & looked on Google & tried lots of methods. It prints fine, since there is ink, but the problem is since the printer thinks there's no ink, it stores new faxes in memory rather than printing them out. I can retrieve them there, but it's a hassle. So, I'd like to figure out how to reset the machine to tell it that it does have a new cartridge or to over ride the storing new faxes in memory & forcing it to print automatically.
Are there (preferably laser) printers designed to print on smaller paper than normal laser printers? Like onto 3x5 cards?

I bought a new computer (stalkers may check out my previous 'asks') running 64 bit windows 7, and I'd like it to connect to my HP 6840 wireless printer; that is, I need an appropriate driver. HP's website says that windows 7, has the driver built in and all I have to do is connect the printer via usb cable and stand back. Well, I tried that and several other things but my Windows 7 home, even after running update, has no driver for my printer (which it correctly identifies). HP tech support is of no help, merely repeating the same advice as the web sites I've already seen. I know such a driver exists because other people have solved this problem. How can I get it?

I have a 4 year old Samsung ML-2510 printer that will no longer print. It takes in a sheet of paper about halfway, then stops for ~20 seconds then spits the page out a blank page. It will keep doing this until it runs out of paper. The red error light is slowly flashing. The problem appeared a couple of years ago, but I've always been able to get it to go away before. It worked fine the first time I used it this semester but stopped working the second time I used it. Since then I've only been able to get it to spit out one non-blank page, and that was involved in a paperjam. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get it working? I've tried Google and the Samsung site, but I get the same 4 questions answered over and over again. [more inside]

Let's say I'm willing to spend $500 for a printer...but my only incentive to do so (I have a normal printer now) would be that it allows me to print my own larger-format prints, on 11 x 17 paper (or even larger if that was possible). Does such a creature exist? If so, what would you recommend? [more inside]

Having had 3 all-in-one printer/fax/scanner units go kerblooey after less than a year of moderate use each, I'm thinking I need to go to separate printer and scanner units.

Please cite brands and models. Thanks!
