Logic Board appears bad (three technicians agree). Where can I find a used Logic Board for the 3100? New cost appears to be over $170 .. know of a lower cost new?

At over $170 the new cost is too high to salvage the unit, since it is only needed as a FAX, and a new HP fax can be had with warranty in the low $200's.

Perhaps you could locate a mechanically broken 3100 someplace and scavenge it.

Have you checked on EBay?  I'll bet you can get a fully functional unit for less than the cost of a replacement logic board.

Call around to all local places that deal with used printers (computer sales AND printer service places) and tell them what you are looking for (3100 that is being junked). You might want to email or send them a printed note so they have something to remind them.

If they don't have anything right away, eventually something will show up. You can also post an "I want" message at a number of sites. I'm also posting your question at Google Groups to look for other ideas or resources (I see nothing like it posted).

Further resource: If any chips on the logic board can be reseated, reseat them! (Pull off and push back into place.) This has a definite chance (not as small a chance as you might think), of fixing the problem. It's likely one of the first things an independant tech would try.
