Printer won't scan because it's out of ink


Unfortunately, all-in-one printers are printers/copiers. The scan to a computer function is a secondary function and the unit has interlocks to keep it from being damaged when the ink is out. There is a way to print with only one ink cartridge in place but this only allows print jobs from the computer. The copy and scan functions are locked. For details, see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01673672&tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3742086#N2374 . See the section on Ink Level Indicator (!) and the bottom notch of the indicator blink fast and the Workaround: Print in ink-backup mode

You need a stand-alone scanner if you routinely want to scan to your computer without a printer ink level OK status report.

I wish that I had better news for you.

When I print from the internet my copy prints my color comes out a different color I think it might be my black ink is off I have a dell 946 all-in-one printer.


Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Can you copy a document under the glass? Black & White and color? Do they look ok?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges .

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Check color ink light blinking


You probably need to clean the jets. On your computer you should have an icon for your printer type? Lexmark, Epson, etc? Well doubleclick it and it should have options for troubleshooting or maintenance. Go there and follow the instructions for cleaning and aligning the printer. Until you do that most printers won't reset to show the real levels anyway. Hope this helps. Let me know.

Error code 5100


Here's what worked for me in solving this error code 5100 problem. Not only was I unable to print anything because I kept getting that code, but there was a thunking sound when the carriage stopped moving, and every time I turned the machine on it was feeding through one sheet of blank paper. I was about to go out and buy a new printer of a different brand because the Canon was unusable.
Then, fooling around with the machine's menu and settings buttons, I came across an option, I think it was in the Maintenance menu, to Restore Factory Settings. I chose that option and it asked me again if I wanted to restore the original factory settings, Yes or No. I said Yes, and immediately the printer started behaving itself. No more 5100, no more funny noises, no more blanks sheets of paper. It is back to its old self again.
That still doesn't solve the problem of spending a fortune to buy ink cartridges, but I just hooked up my old Panasonic 24-pin dot matrix printer to the printer port of my CPU (a ribbon lasts me a year and costs less than $15), and the Canon to another port, so now I can print the day-to-day stuff on the cheap dot matrix and use the Canon for the important stuff.
I don't know if restoring the factory settings will work for you, but it was the solution in my case. Hope it helps you out.
