Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm thinking of going in for the Brother 5460 CN printer, but I want to know whether it would scan without the cartridges, sorry if this query appears a little dumb!
That's not a dumb question at all. Actually an excellent on, And I would really think you need to go to Brother.com and call customer supprt. My best guess from knowledge of past equipment experience, would be if the cartridges are ampty or out of the machine, It will lock out and not scan.

Simple solution is to just use opaque tape and cover the ink cartridges so that the printer thinks they are full. :)

This has got to be one of the biggest design flaws made on purpose to attack your wallet. This machine will not do anything if it has no ink. I have one at my work and it really tries to be thrown out the window daily. I am so glad it isn't mine. I will never buy any of their products just because of this. It is obviously a ploy to force you to buy more ink that costs way to much money.
