I had the exact same problem with my MP150 & it is most definitely a scanner issue.
I slowly & very carefully pulled my printer apart (remembering where the parts & screws came from). On the left hand side of the scanner a small ribbon had been disconnected (the result of pulling it apart earlier to fix a severe paper jam) I simply pushed the ribbon back in & put the printer back together.
Although this procedure is pretty basic, I wouldn't recommend doing this yourself unless you have some computer building/ repair skills up your sleeve as the parts can look a little daunting if you do not know what you are looking at.
But then again if its broken & your looking at getting another printer anyway, whats the harm of trying.
Just make sure you disconnect the power first & its usually a good idea to ground yourself or use a static strap to avoid any damage to your printer.
