Question: Printer Expires in 2011?

I have a Canon MX310 printer that has worked adequately for a while now. It has suddenly stopped working and isn't recognized by my computer. A unplugging or resetting and installing new driver didn't help.
Then I realized that it is January 1, 2011! Is it possible that the printer has literally expired in 2011? Is it worth the repair?
