I've repaired many CX and SX engined printers, and I found it a lot 
cheaper to buy just those bits that wear out. You don't need to replace 
the whole fuser, jsut the rollers and/or lamp, for example. Yes, it's a 
bit more work, but time is worth nothing to me.

I figured out how to repair the CX printer by taking one apart and 
putting it back together _without the benefit of any instructions_. And 
if I can do  it, anyone can. They're just not that complicated.
