    I have two printers that have taken storage duties... trying to get rid of or repurpose them. One is an ooooold school HP Laskerjet 4L, still works to my knowledge. The other is a Canon Pixma MX850, but this one is broken.... not really sure what's wrong with it but I think the printing mechanism is off track. Could be an easy fix, not sure.

    Are these worth anything? Chuck them or ebay or ...?

    Post an ad on craigslist and give them away or recycle them at best buy.

    The Laser printer is still useful at schools...

    If you print a lot of print only and/or b/w pages, I'd use the laser printer for that and keep any other printers for better quality/colour jobs.

    The laserjet uses an old plug... any way to get this to work with USB?

    Cheaper to trash / sell the old 4L and get a new printer. A networked Brother HL-2270DW (Duplexing / Wireless) on sale here in Toronto was $99. Cheaper than a toner for my old LJ4000.
