I was at one point employed primarily as a printer repair tech full
time. The prices you're quoting are reasonable. Printers are cheap -
your best bet really is to just replace them most of the time. If I knew
what model and manufacturer I could provide a better answer, or at least
a more definitive one (Oh yeah, replace, or no, that one you can fix).

Also, printer repair is very, very easy. If you have a bunch of the same
printers, get the maintenance manual, and just buy the parts. It's
really not hard.
