Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.
There are no known issues with that printer, I think you just got (un)lucky getting a second bad printer. However, that would depend on how much you use your printer. Printers that are under $100 are meant for light use. If you use it often, I would suggest upgrading to an office-grade printer. They cost a little more, but they work great for heavier usage.
There is a warranty, not a lemon law. The warranty is good for one year, you shouldn't have a problem getting a new one for free. They cover parts and labor for one full year.
Are you able to get a new printer from Canon?
