E4 says the ink is empty, sometimes you can print if you just press and hold the OK button for a few seconds, but if the error doesn't clear, you will have to replace the color ink before you can print in just black.
Check our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/hp.htm We have a reset procedure that should get your printer back running. The problem that causes the ink system failure is air in the ink feed tubes. The reset procedure will purge the ink lines and reset the ink sensors.
I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Good to excellent chance that by not using the ink jet for "years" that they are hopelessly clogged. You can try the cleaning procedure but I'd bet that your lack of use has ruined the ink jet portion.
I had this happen to me and went through (and wasted) a lot of time and money cleaning the printer and trying to get ink to come through.
On the bright side You have a lovely scanner. Time to go buy a printer. Sorry but I think your "printing in years" is probably a self imposed problem created by lack of use. Ink's pesky and clogs if it's not spit through at regular interfals.
To print without color ink go to START>control panel>PRINTERS & OTHER HARDWARES>PRINTERS & FAXES>Right click to your printer>PROPERTIES>MAINTAINANCE>INK CARTRIDGE SETTING>then select BLACK ONLY. I think it fix your problem.
