    Cartridges are empty, do not need to print, only want to scan. No matter what I do (cartridges in our out), the Copy Scan and Print buttons flash and I either get the message "insert right cartridge" or "check cartridge". How do I get around these errors so it will let me scan?

Wont scan without ink cartridge empty


Failing to scan when an ink cartridge is empty is the normal behavior of most ink-jet printers. They are printers first and the manufacturers put in a lock to prevent air bubbles or dried blobs of ink stuck in the print system.

Replace the empty ink cartridge and then scan your document. To avoid the issue in the future, get a stand-alone scanner.

I wish that I had a better solution for you.

I am trying to scan a document, however the black ink is empty. It only shows the error message that I should refill my ink. Shouldn't I still be able to scan documents?


Must be using PG830 or PG40 50?

For Canon, if either color or black cartridge is empty or out of ink, "Scanner" doesn't work.

That's why your scanner is not properly working.

It's all connected... That's Canon.

Are you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needles are needed.
It's not only easy to refill, you can have quality printing.

Check out my youtube video, will find how easy refill can be done.

How to change ink cartridges on an Epson CX 3800


Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start replacing a cartridge you must complete all steps in one session.

1. Make sure the Epson CX printer is on.
2 Make sure the document cover is closed, then open the scanner
Caution: Do Not open the scanner when the document cover cover is open.
3. Press and release the " ink " button. The ink cartridge moves to the check position and the
" On " and " ink " lights flash. If one of the cartridges is low or empty, the printer moves the
cartridge to the _ink out mark.
Note: Don't hold down the " ink " button for 3 or more seconds or the printer starts cleaning the print head.
Caution: Do Not move the print head by hand; this may damage the printer, always press the ink
button to move it.
4. Press the " ink " button again
a. If more than one cartridge is low or empty, the next cartridge moves to the_ink out position.
b. If all of the empty or low cartridges have been identified, the print head moves to the ink
cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the empty/low cartridge and lift it straight out.
7. Before you open the new ink cartridge package shake it four or five times, then remove it
from the package.
Caution: Do Not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; otherwise ink will leak.
Do Not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge, this can damage the
ink cartridge.
8. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down until it snaps into
place.
a. Replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10.Close the scanner.
11. Press the " ink " button The print starts charging ink and the " On " light starts flashing. This
takes about one minute. When it's finished the " On " light stops flashing and remains on.
and the " ink " light goes out.
Caution: Never turn off the printer while the " On " light is flashing or you'll waste ink.
Note: If the " ink " light stays on ( not flashing ), the ink cartridge may not be installed correctly.
Press the " ink " button again and reinstall the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.

If black or Color cartridge is empty in canon MP145 all in one printer, so scanner is not scan. how to scan without cartridge?pleae help me.


Hi, The scanning unit is independent from printing unit. You can scan even with empty ink cartridges. At sametime, if you wanna copy documents, you need both scanning and copying units to work. Try reinstalling the Driver from the provided driver CD.

    Can i still scan photos if my ink is empty


    YES, it will scan without the printer cartridges. I picked up a Canon MP160 for free at a yard sale this morning. It didn't come with either ink cartridge. When I powered it up, both the cartridge lights came on but it didn't display any error codes. I installed the Mac OS X scanner driver, and MP Navigator. I then used it to scan a 99-page text document into a PDF file. I have not installed the Mac OS X printer driver for it.

    Epson RX600 will not scan or nuthin' with empty ink cartridges


    I cannot help about the Printing problem, because it seems it needs to have all the catridges with some ink to Print.But i can help you about the scan problem.I was having the same issue as you and gave up trying to print, but when i needed to scan i realized the printer didnt let me touch any of the buttons, repeating the same message "change catridge".If you use the EPSON SCAN application that comes with the printer, it lets you scan directly from the PC. It takes longer, dont know why, but at least it scans.I hope it helps.

    3. Press and release the ink button. The 'On' and 'Ink' lights flash.
    If one of the cartridges is low or empty the printer moves that cartridge to the 'ink out' mark. Go to step 4.
