Hi Scratchpatch,
My husband and I have just had the same problem. If you make sure all the ink cartridges are still in there, empty or not, and then press the Stop/Reset/Cancel button for 5 seconds it will take you back on to the main menu. this button is located in the middleish right of the button pad and is the only red coloured button on there. I hope this helps!!!

There is a characteristic problem with these models and others that use that ink, that the part of the carrier that delivers the ink to the printhead cracks. There is no real solution, because there are no parts available for ANY HP ink printer. It's time for a new one. HP's solution is to `upgrade' you.... Wanna buy another HP???

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.

Scan Color document by Toshiba E-Studio 45


E-studio 45 or E4500 is a black and white copier. Hence, it can only scan original document to black and white only. There are some copiers which have the color scan capability but not this one.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine


If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Scanning when out of ink


I don't think the Scanner neeeds a Cartridge to Scan a Document. You should be able to scan your Document even if your Tanks ran out of Ink. Just use the same process of scanning that you used so far and will be successful to scan the Document you're about to.
If you can't do anything regarding this, contact Vendor.
