The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner. You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way: 1) Place photo on scanner 2) Open scanner software 3) Using the software, Initiate scan 4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures 5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned
Also, if you are just scanning, it should not matter what the ink situation is.
By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.
As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.
Scanning using the Operation Panel

platen glass. 2. Press the [Scan] button on the
MP Navigator starts on the connected computer. You can scan in
documents placed on the platen glass using MP Navigator.
Hello, you can a document using a scanner. 1. you have to find a SCANNER machine that is responsible in scanning the files you want to scan. 2. Then after you find a scanner, next thing to do is to place the document file in the scanner and make sure that your scanner is properly connected and turn on. 3. Click and run the software that is bundled with the scanner to scan the document and then you have to set the path where your scanned file is to be place. 4. Then after the scanning process finished then click the save button to save the scanned files.
I had a similar problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250 all-in-one, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were in low ink (almost without ink).
I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it.
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.
