Summary: Printer had internal printing defects-same defect copying (garbled lines every 3-4 lines & uneven lines). Could not meet 2 dayreturn conditions as printer could not print return labels properly. Junked MP280 and bought a new printer. Learned a lesson-don't buy used tech online!
Summary: Very Unsatisfied. I have so much trouble with this printer I often give up and just go to the library. If it isn't one thing it is another. It sucks too much ink and the heads always have to be cleaned. By the time I get some decent prints out of it - it's out of ink.
Summary: I have had trouble with this printer since I received it 11/16/11. First I couldn't get it to print in color than the ink ran out in after about 3 weeks. it was the ink that was in the box with the printer.
Summary: I purchased this item at a local superstore (yes, THAT one). Usually I use Amazon, but I sinned. PROS: - Good price. - Comes with 2 ink cartridges (which didn't work, see below). - Black, my fave color. - Decently compact, and not very heavy. - Canon has always been a winner for me, till today.
Awful print quality and thinks color cartridge is empty

Summary: Worked fine for about 5 weeks and then text began to have tons of wavy lines. Absolutely horrible print quality. Then, after never once using the color cartridge, it is saying that it is empty. Would never recommend this printer.
Summary: Since day one we have had trouble with this printer. It prints fine, it just really sucks up ink. You cannot refill the ink on you own nor can you use refurbished ink cartridges, the printer will reject them and not work! Very frustrating.
Summary: I googled what it could mean, and it means that the ink is either not recognised, or not loaded correctly. I read the manual on how to install it correctly. No dice. Keeps doing the same dumb error. No USB cable included in the box, so I had to go out and buy one.
Summary: Nach knapp 3 Jahren (in denen der Drucker nur wenig gebraucht wurde, ich habe erst einmal die Tintenpatronen gewechselt) ist der Drucker kaputt! Handbuch half nicht weiter, telefonischer Support riet zu Werkstattbesuch - bei dem Preis des Geräts ein schlechter Witz!
