You have no alternate solution, just insert the both cartridges.

Can my canon mp270 still scan if it is out of ink


Sadly not. Canon inkjet printer don't tend to let you do anything without a full set of cartridges.

I've just changed the black ink cartridge on a canon mp140 without changing the colour one but it still won't work. Do i have to change the colour one too because i only want black?


Hi both of the ink cartridges need to have ink in if one is empty then it just wont work, a lot of people think they can just replace the black but find out they need to replace both to be able to use the printer, their is no way around this and their are no settings you can change to turn the color ink off,

sorry their is no easy solution but without replacing the color as well it just keeps giving you warning and wont allow you to print anything

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My canon mp140 shows E4


From CANON FAQs for your printer:

Issue: ERROR LED: E, 4
Solution: Press and hold Stop/Reset button for at least five seconds.
Clearing the Ink Error If you want to continue printing in this condition, press and hold the <Stop/Reset> button on the printer for at least five seconds, and then release it. Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

I placed a re-filled ink cartridges in my canon mp140 printer and


Computer chips in cartridges must be reset before the printer will recognize them as full. If you paid a shop to refill your cartridges take them back and complain. The best places will test the refilled cartridge before giving it to you.

Please note durability of prints using cheap ink is usually very poor, and as a result the manufacturers ink is usually much the better choice.

Mp140 e2


E3 – Paper jam error.
How to correct, fix: Remove the jammed paper. If paper jams frequently occur, check the following:
1. Confirm there is no foreign material inside the machine.
2. Confirm only recommended paper is installed.
3. Confirm paper is installed properly.
4. Confirm the maximum number of sheets in the auto sheet feeder is within the paper limit mark.

E4 – Empty ink tank.
How to correct, fix: An ink cartridge is empty. To cancel printing, press the <Stop/Reset> button. To continue printing, press <Black> or <Color> button. After printing completes, replace the empty ink cartridge. Printing with an empty ink cartridge may cause the machine to malfunction.

E5 – The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.
How to correct, fix: Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing. If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur.

E7 – The ink cartridge is not installed in the appropriate position.
How to correct, fix: The ink cartridge is not installed in the proper position. Install each ink cartridge in the proper position.

E8 – The ink wasteabsorber is almost full.
How to correct, fix: The waste ink absorber is getting full. Press the <Black> or <Color> button to clear the error and continue printing. Printing can continue until the waste ink absorber becomes full. If the waste ink absorber becomes full, the machine will require service. The waste ink absorber is a part inside the machine, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations.

E9 – A specified period of time has elapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera. A print mode compliant with PictBridge is not selected. A specified period of time has elapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera.
How to correct, fix: The machine cannot communicate with the connected camera. Disconnect the cable between the machine and the camera to clear the error. Check the following items, then try printing again.
1. Confirm that the camera you are using supports PictBridge or Canon Bubble Jet Direct. If the camera does not support either one, the machine cannot print directly from the camera.
2. Set the camera in PictBridge print mode before it is connected to the machine. This is required before printing for some cameras that support PictBridge. Please refer to the camera instructions for more information about procedures required before and after connection to the machine.
3. There may have been no response from the camera for the prescribed time. Re-connect the cable between the camera and the machine.

E14 – Ink cartridge cannot be recognized.
How to correct, fix: Unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.

E15 – Install only recommended ink cartridges.
How to correct, fix: Install only recommended ink cartridges.

E16 – The ink level cannot be correctly recognized or detected.
How to correct, fix: A used ink cartridge may be installed, or the ink cartridge is empty. Press the <Black> or <Color> button, to clear the error and continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge. However, the remaining ink amount cannot be detected properly, so the function to detect the remaining ink amount does not operate.

E19 – Scanning failed error.
How to correct, fix: Scanning a document failed. Check if the document is placed in the correct orientation position and try the operation again.
