How much will the repairs cost? (Other than charity donated labour)

The way that it goes blank exactly halfway down (or so)
might mean that a memory chip is loose, or a CPU address line is out.
You might try reseating all the chips, boards and connectors

The price of a new laser is #50, 2000-page toner #40, P+P to make #100
(but I have no idea which is best per-page value).
BUT 2M is only enough for 300 dpi - unless it has internal compression
