Wouldn’t you know it, the same day I decide to order a ribbon and some paper for my HP 82905B (aka Epson MX80) printer, the AC line filter cap (C1 on the MFIL board), expelled its magic smoke rather impressively.  After some cleanup, the printer has been banished to the garage until the smell diminishes.  It appears to be a 250 V, 0.1 µF X type.  What manufacturers have good reliability for this application, in your opinion?
