Am I able to scan a picture into my computer. I have windows 7, the model is a mfc-5440cnz and do you need ink to do this? thank you for help


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

Also, if you are just scanning, it should not matter what the ink situation is.

PIXMA MP610 can't scan without ink (makes no sense)


You can scan when out of ink. You have to press and hold the reset button (red triangle inside a circle) for five seconds which tells the printer to ignore ink problems and continue.

The short Question Is there a way for me to scan without ink on my MP610? The descriptive question. I have a Cannon Mp610. I previously had success scanning by installing the drivers and the software but...


if the printer will let you run it without an error for the ink, than yes, scan to your pc. usually if you look there is an ink sensor like a button in a washing maching that allows it to spin only when the lid is closed, you follow me...anyway if you can find it sometimes you can fool the printer into thinking it has ink. other than that, if it wont let you than there isnt any way other than to get ink. this is why i always frown on buying the cute all in ones because if something goes, the whole thing goes.

Stripes on scanned photo


Do copies come out the same? How about when you print? If you get the stripes whenever the printer prints from the computer or copies, then you probably have a bad ink cartridge. If you get it only when you make copies or scan, then check for dirt on the scan glass. Clean it anyway with some commercial glass cleaner. See if that works.

Scanning when out of ink


I don't think the Scanner neeeds a Cartridge to Scan a Document. You should be able to scan your Document even if your Tanks ran out of Ink. Just use the same process of scanning that you used so far and will be successful to scan the Document you're about to.
If you can't do anything regarding this, contact Vendor.
