Hey, has anyone taken their C8100 into a hp repair place and gotten the bad capacitors or whatever is wrong that causes this recycling-on/off-with-no-end PROBLEM fixed? If so, how much did it cost?
I'm not handy enough to open my machine, find the faulty part and start sodering in new ones. Not gonna happen.
Is the repair visit fix less expensive than a new machine? Let me know -- if anyone has tried REPAIR SERVICE. Thanks!

Hi ! Not sure has Your problem has been solved and i understand You have posted this message 3 years ago but decided to post what i have done anyway.
1. Find new PCB and replace the unit - cost 95 dollars or 60 pounds avaiable only in USA. (if you live somwhere else You need to add quite high delivery charge by UPS)
2. Open Your printer...disconnect and remove your old PCB...look up for swallen or leaking capacitors... Unsolder them, replace with new ones. Place everything back and Your printer is ready to use. Thats what i have done and it's all working fine .Cost 3 pounds if you know what You are doing.
I went for second option as didn't want to spend double the price for delivery.
