I talked to a printer repair technician, and he said that it's impossible to order that replacement part from the manufacturer.
His recommendation was to buy a new printer, and to responsibly recycle the old printer -- cheaper than trying to repair.

I got. My oil changed now my car has burnt smelling oil and smoke was coming from the engine car stop running what's wrong

burnt out rings or cracked block. Hopefully not - expensive repair

Blown head gasket or Warped head - less expensive. Compression test would eliminate or prove this to be cause.

Timing belt may be broken or bearings shattered in timing belt runners.

My 2002 Hyundai Sonata sgx won't start. Someone said it could be the timimgbelt and someone else said a fly wheel. It made it to the corner oneday then just died. Has gas in it...and anew battery..

If the flywheel failed you'd surely know it. There'd be pieces of car all over the road. As far as the timing belt is concerned, that's is a distinct possibility. If the car has more than 70K miles on it and the timing belt has never been changed, then in the case of a sudden no-start condition, the timing belt is always a real possibility.
There are a couple ways to check for a broken belt, but before I tell you them I must tell you this. The engine in your car is referred to as an INTERFERENCE engine. This means that if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running, the camshaft and crankshaft will be out of synchronization and the valves in the head will hit the pistons in the block and bend or break. Now, to check for a broken belt, the easiest way is just to crank the engine. If it seems to crank over much faster than it normally does, then there is a good change the belt is broken. If you cannot tell for sure, you may be able to see if the cams are turning by removing the oil filler cap and looking down into the valve cover. If you can see the camshaft when looking into the valve cover, crank the engine and see if the camshaft is turning. If not, you got a broken belt and a trashed motor. It will require, at a minimum, the head to be repaired and resurfaced, new head gasket and timing belt and tensioner. If you have the 2.7L engine, you should replace the water pump at this time as it is driven by the timing belt. There may be additional damage done to pistons depending on how fast the engine was turning when the belt broke.

Stearing box oil was leaking then belt from dianoma broken then engine is not working .mechanic told that broken belt and timing belt is changed ,he need to open head to repare the vave ,is it true . all...

The steering box oil leak and the timing belt problem may or may not be related. Oil will deteriorate belts. Timing belts should be changed from about 60,000 to 80,000 max. Most people neglect changing there timing belt (yours was probably over due). The overhead cam performance, inexpensive price of the automobile, and the room to have a larger motor in a smaller car all hinge on the timing belt design that you benefit from. The only down fall of this design is the fact that in higher performance versions of this engine , if the timing belt breaks the pistons will hit and bend/break the overhead valves. That is why manufacturers give you a breakdown of when you should be performing scheduled maintenance in your owners manual or warranty manual. Depending on the cost of the repair sometimes it is cheaper to replace the head with a complete assembly from a salvage yard than pay some one to rebuild the one you have . If your funds are limited I would price the repair both ways. A used head assembly might be less than the cost of the valves. your sweat equity can save you money.
