Multifunction printer

Whats the best multifunction printer. Don't print photos so just use it for scanning occassionly and printing. Currently have a Canon MP 150 but the ink waste thingy is full and I can't fix it or get it to reset so maybe it is time to get a new one. Think individual tanks are best aren't they. Any advise would be great. Thanks

If you don't need colour and can afford it, get a perm, oh sorry, get a laser.

I have a
EPSON CX5900 that I use for the same reason.
Has very cheap ink replacement costs and multi inks.
Very good priced unit and has worked well for me for over a year now.

But would you agree that you have used or abused that MP150 so much that the waste ink collector really is full? Have you tried resetting the counter? I can't say that the procedure on the MP150 is the same service mode method as follows on this link, but give it a try. Skip steps 1 through 5 which illustrate how to change the waste ink pads, and go straight to the Step 6 link at the bottom, labelled "Seite 11": http://www.druckerchannel.de/artikel.php?ID=1831&seite=1

I have an older HP all in one.... really pleased with it. Inkwise etc... might check the HP site

If this Canon iP3000 dies on me, I'd buy a Canon MP980 multifunction, because as well as the DVD printing feature, it has a 35mm/slide scanner at a reasonably good resolution.
