I just came up with the same problem. But if you keep pressing the right most button (the red one) for 5 seconds the message "replace ink cartridge" disappears and then you can use it as a scanner.

In printer utility settings, you have to modify the ink cartridge settings and specify that printer should use only black ink cartridge. Click apply. Then press "stop\reset" button for 5-7 sec. and then release
it. Then it will work!

The answer I got from Canon tech support is to hold down the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds and that should clear the "Out of ink" message. I tried it and this did indeed clear the message and allowed me to use the scanner. My multifunction is the MP600.
