What to do with an old, somewhat broken printer/copier/fax/scanner?

I hooked up a new printer for my parents, and they gave me the old one.
It's an HP C7280 Photosmart printer, fax, copier, scanner, high end model from 2008.
I had troubleshot it all I could and the black ink still wouldn't print, so they got a whole new one for a good deal.
So now, I'm wondering what I can do with the old one. I'm thinking of cannibalizing it and turning components of it into separate devices. maybe I can turn bits of it into spy gadgets or something cool like that.
Any ideas?

There's probably at least one stepper motor in it.
