What do you do with a damaged printer?

For some months now my HP Laserjet has been hors de combat after something fell into it and munged up the transfer roller. Today I finally got bored enough to look into the various options for repair & replacement, and the bottom line is that I could fix it...if I didn't have ten thumbs and the mechanical aptitude of a retarded howler monkey. I also don't feel much like throwing $50 (or more) at the Geek Squad to replace a ten-dollar roller. So, either I find somebody to fix the thing who is willing to swap labor for dinner, or donate it to someplace that can fix it, after which I'll make do with something a little more low-end, like, say, this Deskjet.

Oh, man. Remember The Printer that I bought on eBay? Same problem. I haven't got around to doing it, and probably won't until I can take it into the backyard to fix it.

Oh, what do you do with a damaged printer,
What do you do with a damaged printer,
What do you do with a damaged printer er-lie in the mornin'!

Throw it down an airshaft 'till it shatters,
Throw it down an airshaft 'till it shatters,
Throw it down an airshaft 'till it shatters er-lie in the mornin'!

Kick it hard with your hobnail punk boots,
Kick it hard with your hobnail punk boots,
Kick it hard with your hobnail punk boots er-lie in the mornin'!

Pour hot coffee down its manual feed tray,
Pour hot coffee down its manual feed tray,
Pour hot coffee down its manual feed tray er-lie in the mornin'!

That's what you do with a damaged printer,
That's what you do with a damaged printer,
That's what you do with a damaged printer er-lie in the mornin'!
