Trash or Treasure?

Some weeks ago I found a Canon Pixma MP510 on the street. A "Photo All-in-One with economical single inks that prints, copies or scans in colour". Someone had thrown it away regarding it as a piece of junk. I saw a pile of gold.

Taking it apart I got...

  • four nice motors: two stepper and two DC motors
  • a 33x25 cm piece of glass
  • boxed and reusable 220V power supply
  • a small LCD colour display
  • a scanner head
  • some LEDs
  • five infrared sensors (paper sensors)
  • lots of screws and springs
  • wire and cog belts
  • some switch buttons
  • two USB jacks
  • various other components
