No Scan without more$$$$$?!?
Well i have no need to print at the moment, but I do need to scan pages for school . Turns out if an ink cartridge is empty it will not let you scan. Essentially making the product useless. I feel this is a really low way to scam your customers. Mech/Elec Engineering Technologist.

Black printing problems
Bought printer couple of years ago and don't print a ton but print something every week or so. Printing some things, depending on whether from internet, copy, or photo, takes forever although when I bought it, it was advertised as a lot faster. Now I cannot print anything in black - when I did a print test only the colored lines appeared (all good) including the black, but no black patterns appeared above the colors. Looks like there have been plenty of problems with that & I don't feel confident taking the thing apart to repair the problem.

Refuses to scan if you run out of ink.
I love the MP560 and it has served me well since I received it as a Christmas gift from my sister some years ago. So why am I only giving an Overall Rating of just one star?
Well, I only recently learned that this thing absolutely REFUSES to scan anything if you run out of ink! This printer uses 5 ink cartridges:
*black (fatter cartridge)
And you can't print greyscale (or black & white) if ANY of the cartridges are empty... that includes any one or more of the color cartridges.
For this serious flaw, I can't recommend that anyone buy this model (or similar) if there isn't going to be a firmware release to fix it.
Seriously? I can't scan my important documents if this thing has no ink? Very frustrating! I'm seriously considering dumping this model and getting a stand-alone printer and a separate stand-alone scanner just to avoid this nightmare!
