A voltage spike is the best explanation I've heard yet as to why your printer failed so early and after so little usage. I've lost quite a few items over the years because of not having adequate protection, most recently a 9800 and 7800 within a few weeks of each other after some drunken idiot took out my power pole and the resulting outage overwhelmed my surge protector blowing out one printer immediately and weakening the other where it died a few weeks later. I now no longer trust surge protectors for anything and have all my equipment protected by a UPS.

In fact I think I will now add that to my recommendations to anyone who wants to get into printing. If you don't have a UPS protecting it then expect it to be destroyed eventually by a voltage spike.

That seems the only reasonable explanation to me too. Voltage spike.
