Most all-in-ones still behave like a printer. So when you run out of ink, the computer inside decides nothing will work. In many printers that take both color and black ink cartridges act, even if you just want to print in black it won't let you print at all with a missing or empty color cartridge. In this case even the scanner function is disabled. That's just how it was designed. Sometimes you're better off with separate units, even if they take more space.

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.

I installed the drivers for a canon pixma mp210 and it wont scan. it keeps saying " E 1 6"


"E 1 6" error code means Ink has run out.

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.

MY ALARM ON MY MP210 IS ON AN MY COLOR INK FLASHES WHAT DO I DO


Hi there,
Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
You have 3 lamps
(A) Alarm lamp
(B) Black ink lamp
(C) Color ink lamp
Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
a) If the ink lamp lights.
Cause : Ink is low.
Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
* If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
Action : Ink may have run out.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

* If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
Cause : Ink has run out.
Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 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.

c) Only the ink lamp flashes
Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

CANON MP830 WILL NOT FAX OR SCAN IF ONE INK IS EMPTY


It's true, you need inks before you can scan or fax, It's not just Canon, All of the all in one machines are the same way. HP, Brother, Samsung, It's the drawback to having an all-in-one machine.

Mx310 out of ink


when you see the check ink notice press cancel, then the other functions should operate correctly! Ink level has nothing to do with the scan function

Use MFC-465CN withou cartridges


in order to scan you need to have ink in cartridges?... great design!!! cheat the printer - use black electric tape to cover transparent slots at the back of your cartridges (printer will think that it has ink and it should stop that annoying beeping)
