What's the problem?
Are you losing sales or money? Google's not the be-all and end-all, rather it is but a means to an end. Keep your eye on the goal.

Get rid of the duplicate content, get a few more quality links to the page, and you should be back (unless there is some other penalty involved).

Agreed. Too much emphasis is made with Google when there are two other tough guys on the block - Y! and MSN. True, Google has the market share, but ignoring the collective market share from the other two is a big mistake.
Correct the error of your ways and focus on all three, not just one.

Just ignore Google, who needs their 98% of potential traffic! Rather, fight your way to the top of Yahoo and MSN and claim your share of the remaining 2%.
I had a site PR0 penalized by Google. Overall traffic dropped to 1/10th -- even though the site was still top-3 in Yahoo and MSN! Even with a Google PR0 ban I still get more traffic from Google than MSN and Yahoo (combined) with top-SERPs.
Google may be pure evil, but they are still the only game in town.

good one, heh heh.
What about deleting the old one and using htaccess permamnent redirect on the old page url to the new.
Isnt that normal and then remove the redirect after a couple months?
I just did this exact same thing and now with the new adsense rules conforming to Google webmaster guidelines on redirects ive sent a letter asking them if that could cause any violation of TOS, still waiting.
