Scanning has nothing to do with the printing ...so ...in theory it has to scan just fine without ink at all in the printer ...so ..if you have unexpected errors...probably it has something to do with the operating system and the driver ...so ...first remove with the add /remove software ( control panel ) the driver ...and reinstall it clean ..if this would not fix the problem ....you probably have to reinstall the operating system as well cause it has issues that interfere with the accurate function of the scanner /printer

How do I operate the scanner on a MP240 Cannon Printer?


You have to scan through software, wither the built in windows program (if you have one) or the software that came with the printer, or an aftermarket program like Abbey Fine Reader.

I am out of blue ink, but nned to scan, but the printer is locked and says that an error occured, to switch off and if it doesn't help, look in the handbook.


Hi,
Looks like Canon does not allow to scan without ink, but, you can disable the ink status viewer, you do that by holding start/stop button for at least 5 sec.

I am using windows 7 and windows live mail with Cannon MP240. when scanning to email i get the message "failed to send email. check you mail program settings" I have updated printer drivers.


> check your mail program settings

Updating your printer's device-drivers will not be helpful.

Within Internet Explorer:
click File
point at Send
click Link by E-mail

This should open your "E-mail program".
Check the settings, e.g. "outgoing SMTP server".

Stop your printer running while you are scanning photos.
It defines error because your printer and scanner running simultaneously.
Eject your printer while scanning.

Canon PIXMA mp240 All-in-one InkJet Printer. Error code: 2,140,2


If you get a warning regarding Ink is Empty and even you cannot Scan your documents then you might require a small R&D, Just hold Stop/Reset button for about 5 seconds, then open cartridge access door, Remove both the Cartridge's and wipe it with the wet tissue or cloth... spray water or deodorant on the exposed golden surface of the cartridge and do not let it dry, install as soon as possible... Then close the cartridge access door and switch off your printer, then Re-start it and connect to your computer, Hold Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds and then enjoy scanning...
