Greetings! I stored my Canon i560s in the original box and packaging for six months. When I put it in the box it was working like new. Now it won't even power on. The power cord is seated snugly on the printer and the outlet is live. Any ideas on what is wrong?

Re: Canon i560s Power
It surely sounds like a strange issue as everything was working fine when you packed your printer. In this kind of a scenario i will give you few steps and you can try them out.
- Unplugg the power cord and the data cord from the printer. ( I mean it should not be connected to the power and to the computer ) - Press and hold the power button on the printer for 20 seconds. ( You wont feel anything happening, its a way to drain out static charges from the printer )
- Plug in the power cord from both ends and make sure that its fitted properly. - Try a different power outlet - You may not have another power cord, if you have one try that as well.
Hope that this resolves your issue or you may have to take it back to the manufacturer.

The i560 and MP560 are different beasts.
According the Canon, the i560 takes 1x BCI-3eBK, 1x BCI-6M, 1x BCI-6C & 1x BCI-6Y,
and the MP560 takes 1x PGI-520BK, 1x CLI521BK, 1x CLI-521M, 1x CLI-521C & 1x CLI-521Y
Although the BCI-3eBK and the PGI-520BK look similar, they are in fact different.
Also the 3 colour carts look the same but are again different, the BCI carts all have microchips in them and the optical sensor in the bottom is also slightly different.
Searching the Canon supplies section, I cannot find either PGI-220 or CLI-221.
after a month of not using the printer, most probably the print head is clogged.. try using the printer utility to clean the print head.. it's under the printer properties.. normally that should resolve the print missing issue...unless your print head is really clogged up... some would suggest to partial soak the print head onto warm water..but it doesn't work everytime..
Sure it is, try removing the inks and then the printhead. If it will power up with them out, you need a new printhead. Don't put the old one back in as you could fry the logic pcb. The printhead part number is stamped on the side.
Double-click print centreicon.
when it opens up, select I560, then click configure.
click I560 then click select
click the down arrow to select test print.
nozzle, alignment etc...
run the tests try resolve the problem.
