i560 USED INK TANK FULL


Canon seems to have arranged that certain printers, including the i560, fail after a while with an error:

The used ink tank is full.


There seem to be various complex and messy procedures on the internet (though Canon's own web site is not too helpful... I'll try e-mail support) for addressing this problem; and the cost of giving it to some service center for repair is about comparable with the cost of the printer (now about $100).

So, basically, they are saying -- or designing into the product the requirement -- that the printer should be replaced every couple of years.
Of course, when a printer fails I also lose the money for any ink cartridges I've bought in advance.

Sorry, but I won't replace it with another Canon... Ill try something else.

Products should live longer.
