Specifically the control panel (display) and the paper trays?
I know some parts are numbered different, but they look EXACTLY the

I'm losing a bunch of pixels as time goes on.  It's almost impossible
to read even "warming up".  More of a annoyance than anything.

Actually, not the paper trays. Normally hardware items are
interchangeable, but I have a 5Si and an 8000 and trays 2 and 3 are
not interchangeable. I never tried the manual feed unit, and perhaps
the optional 2000 sheet feeder can be used on either, but trays 2 and
3, while they look identical at a casual glance, have a little gadget
on the side at the back that won't let them be interchanged.
But you're right about the control panel.
Bogus e-mail address, but I read this newsgroup regularly, so reply here.

Any idea why?  Internally they appear the same.  The functions on the
menus are the same, the connector is the same, it's the same size.
Heck, the only difference I can see between them is the button shape
(contacts in the exact same place) and the color of the plastic case the
actual electronics is mounted in.  Physically they are interchangable.

The paper trays maybe, but definetly not the control panel.
