Remove the ink cartridges. try it now, should work if not, reinstall the cartridges don't do a print alignment. Go directly to scanning, printer should think the ink is full again.

Wont scan without ink cartridge empty


Failing to scan when an ink cartridge is empty is the normal behavior of most ink-jet printers. They are printers first and the manufacturers put in a lock to prevent air bubbles or dried blobs of ink stuck in the print system.

Replace the empty ink cartridge and then scan your document. To avoid the issue in the future, get a stand-alone scanner.

I wish that I had a better solution for you.

Canon mp 145 scan not working ink catridge empty... scan wont work without ink catridge?


Hi, The scanning unit is independent from printing unit. You can scan even with empty ink cartridges. At sametime, if you wanna copy documents, you need both scanning and copying units to work. Try reinstalling the Driver from the provided drive CD.

Can i still scan photos if my ink is empty


YES, it will scan without the printer cartridges. I picked up a Canon MP160 for free at a yard sale this morning. It didn't come with either ink cartridge. When I powered it up, both the cartridge lights came on but it didn't display any error codes. I installed the Mac OS X scanner driver, and MP Navigator. I then used it to scan a 99-page text document into a PDF file. I have not installed the Mac OS X printer driver for it.

Brother MFC-5460CN won't scan because cyan ink empty


Brother is telling us that sometimes the cartridge can be installed too fast causing it not to read. Install it slowly to see if that helps. Also, power down, remove all the inks and power up. Add the inks one at a time when it asks.

Scanning with no ink in an EPSON RX510


Simply Open EPSON SCAN Software from your computer and scan from there. It WILL WORK even if the Printer is blocked due to Low Ink Issue.

MX700 Will not scan with an empty ink cartidge?!


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.

Epson RX600 will not scan or nuthin' with empty ink cartridges


I cannot help about the Printing problem, because it seems it needs to have all the catridges with some ink to Print.But i can help you about the scan problem.I was having the same issue as you and gave up trying to print, but when i needed to scan i realized the printer didnt let me touch any of the buttons, repeating the same message "change catridge".If you use the EPSON SCAN application that comes with the printer, it lets you scan directly from the PC. It takes longer, dont know why, but at least it scans.I hope it helps.

Why can't I scan when an ink tank is empty?


look into the options for your printer. you should be able to assign file extensions, i.e. .BMP, .JPG, .TIF, GIF etc to your scanned documents without printing them. No ink effects print functions or copy functions.
