SUMMARY: SPARCprinter printing lines...

The consensus on this problem (5 for 5 with email responses) is that the
problem is a dying ROS (Raster Output Scanner). Apparently, for those whose
warranty has expired, Sun charges $1250 for a new one. A re-furbished ROS is
available with trade-in, from:

I believe Xerox can also replace this component.

Thanks for the responses....when I get a chance to swap ROSs with another printer,
I'll be able to confirm this - I'll post again if this is NOT the problem here.
