May be it is programed for that, because it see the ink is out so you can't copy papers so try changing its settings to make it works if the ink is out.

The ink system failure is a pain to troubleshoot. It could mean that the ink cartridges are not communicating with the print head, the print head is bad or the entire printer needs service.

Try resetting the printer to clear the error from memory:
First with the printer on, unplug the USB cable (if using one) from the printer (and the computer).. Then remove all of the ink cartridges from the printer (lift the scanner unit as if to change the ink). Wait for the printer to indicate "Insert ink cartridge). Then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. (Note: do not turn off the printer just disconnect the power cord.) I also disconnect the power cord from the outlet and the power adapter (this resets the adapter). Wait 60 seconds or longer. Then reconnect the power cord to the printer, the adapter and then the outlet. Turn on the printer if it doesn't turn on on its own. Reinsert the ink cartridges and close the printer. Print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable. Try printing again.

If the message repeats, the unit needs service. This printer doesn't allow the user to service the print head so the cost for servicing is variable. If the printer is under warranty, contact HP for service. Otherwise decide if it is worth the cost of service (expect a minimum charge of $50 just to determine the problem.)

I hope this helps.

Hello. My Epson Stylus CX 4200 now flashes the letter E and all the lights flash, including "error." How do I get it working again?


here's what you can do:-disconnect the printer from the computer-turn off the printer-inspect for anything foreign inside like jammed paper-turn the power back on-remove the ink cartridge-check the chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. If its dirty clean it with soft moist cloth. -check the status monitor. which ink tank not recognized. -press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.
if that doesn't work, replace ink cartridge ONLY if you have a spare. DO NOT BUY new ink as the printer is bound for repair.

Canon mp 980 won't even copy or scan if any ink runs out. Is there any way to change that?


Sorry, but no. As far as I know that's how all of these all-in-ones work. If the printer doesn't work because the cartridges run dry, nothing else works either. They don't allow you to use the scanner as a standalone piece.

How to replace ink cartridge for mfc-240c


The cartridges are under the scanner and stay off to the right side of the unit except when printing or when you lift the scanner unit cover while the unit on. If the cartridges returns to the right, close the scanner unit cover and then reopen it. If the cartridge carrier doesn't move, make sure that the unit is turned on.

The black ink goes on the right side.

I am trying to scan a document, however the black ink is empty. It only shows the error message that I should refill my ink. Shouldn't I still be able to scan documents?


Must be using PG830 or PG40 50?

For Canon, if either color or black cartridge is empty or out of ink, "Scanner" doesn't work.

That's why your scanner is not properly working.

It's all connected... That's Canon.

Are you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needles are needed.
It's not only easy to refill, you can have quality printing.

Check out my youtube video, will find how easy refill can be done.

Sanning problems for printer PIXMA MP 160


some printers can detect that the cartridges are refilled based ona barcode or scanning of the cartridges. Does this Cannon have ink tanks or ink cartridges. If it has intakes then the print head needs to be cleaned wth rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. If they are cartridges then it would be good just to buy the original cartidges. As far as the scanning goes this can be a direct connection to the printer going through maintenance. If it continues to not scan then you may need to uninstall the scanner. see if the scanner shows up in your scanners area. if not then it will need to be re-installed.
