I don't need Magenta to print black text!

My HP deskjet 8000's printer drivers won't allow me to print at all when 1 color of ink is out. Yes, even if I only want to print in black and white. Aside from going back and time and telling me not to buy this POS, can you help me? Are there hacked drivers? [more inside]

My printer will only print infinite blank pages

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]

Large Printer for the Home

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]

Any port in a storm.

Time sensitive hardware question: I have a Biloxon SRP-370 thermal receipt printer. It uses an LPT cable. The POS computer uses lpt or com, but the software only talks to COM. Therefore, I need the printer to use COM instead. Where can I buy a com port that will fit it and get it shipped overnight?

Best home office printer, scanner?

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. (I don't need the fax function; this is done directly from the computers.) Looking for recommendations for color / black-and-white printers, and scanners, that you've found to be robust and reliable. Please cite brands and models. Thanks!
