SOURCE: Document Jam Error Message on Brother MFC-8660DN

I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-8460 and called Brother's support line. The solution that worked for me was to lift the top cover where the sheets of paper go through when you fax. On the right of the black rectangluar piece with grey roller there is a slot in the tray with a black lever inside. The black piece was stuck down inside the slot and had to be popped back out. Once it was out I hit the stop button and it was fixed!!

SOURCE: error message 0xc18a0001 Ink system has failed.

Easy fix. I found elsewhere on this site that the solution is to RESET the printer via the following instructions from HP...

1) Unplug Printer
2) Simultaneously press and hold the HELP & OK buttons
3) Re-plug in printer, while still holding the two buttons.

That's it ! You are reset. It will take a little time for the printer to re-configure, but you'll be printing in 5 or so minutes.

SOURCE: I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Mp495 scan without cartridge


It's a funny thing but, after trying everything above, I just pressed the SCAN button on the printer, instead of trying to do it from a program in the computer. It scanned the document and launched MP Navigator!

I want to scan with canon mx330 without ink in the printer


I have a canon mx330 fax print and scan all in one printer
To scan without ink just hold the back button in after the ink message comes up it should eventually take you to the main menu then you can hit the scan button.

It looks that you can receive data (eg.scanned) from your MFC but cannot send information to it {eg. reference to 2-ways communications not working):
I suspect that it is a 'Firewall' problem or 'Antivirus' issue: review possible logs and try turning both Firewall and Antivirus to check if they are the problems.

Good luck!

Will the HP 2700 scan without an ink cartridge loaded? I am getting an error message about a problem with the black ink cartridge and it is overriding everything else. All I want to do is scan.


Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


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.

Scan without replacing print cartridges on Epson Stylus NX410?


You actually can scan documents when you dont have ink. Instead you will have to activate the scan function from the epson driver/program instead of pressing the scan button directly on the printer. I had the same problem and it took a while to figure out.
