I only want to scan but need a new cartridge - do i have to replace cartridge before scanning is enabled.


You will need a new cartridge before you can scan.
What you could try is to remove both ink cartridges.
Turn printer off and unplug from outlet.
Wait at least 30 minutes, this will let the printer to reset
Turn your ink cartridge upside down for 2 minutes before installing.
This will let some of the ink from the bottom to reach the printhead.
Plug printer back in and turn on and install ink cartridges.
This might work if your printer only detected a low ink condition at first.
For the scanner to work, the printer must have no alarm.

Install black cartridge, but will not print


Lets do it this way. Follow these steps again carefully and try to install the Ink.

Introduction
Follow the instructions below to replace the ink cartridges.
Replacing the ink cartridges
1. Verify that the unit is on.
2. Open the ink cartridge door.
3. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch and then lift the latch.

1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge
2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
NOTE: The ink cartridge areas are color-coded for easy reference. From left to right, the ink cartridges are black, yellow, light cyan, cyan, light magenta, and magenta.
4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.

5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
6. Hold the ink cartridge by the handle and then slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
NOTE: Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the ink cartridge. The copper-colored contacts should be facing the printer as the ink cartridge is inserted.

7. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.

8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 for each ink cartridge that needs to be replaced.
NOTE: All six cartridges must be installed. The printer will not work if an ink cartridge is missing.
9. Close the ink cartridge door. Print a test page.
If after doing this it does'nt work, then i will ask you to unplug the printer cable from the computer and uninstall the printer driver/Software completely.
Shut down your computer and restart it.
Re-install the printer driver/software from the start as you did when you bought it.
Good luck

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer


Hello!
Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
