Go to the scanner options menu, and select B&W only instead of color.

Scanning get ink cartridge message


Unfortunately, you need to replace the ink. The scanner is a bonus feature of the all-in-one; it's a printer first. To prevent damage to the print system, the unit will give the error message if the ink is out or the cartridges are missing.

If you want to scan without the ink issue, purchase a stand-alone scanner.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Printer won't scan because it's out of ink


Unfortunately, all-in-one printers are printers/copiers. The scan to a computer function is a secondary function and the unit has interlocks to keep it from being damaged when the ink is out. There is a way to print with only one ink cartridge in place but this only allows print jobs from the computer. The copy and scan functions are locked. For details, see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01673672&tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3742086#N2374 . See the section on Ink Level Indicator (!) and the bottom notch of the indicator blink fast and the Workaround: Print in ink-backup mode

You need a stand-alone scanner if you routinely want to scan to your computer without a printer ink level OK status report.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I just want to scan. I can't find ink locally and I don't need it, yet Brother tech support says to correct the problems that come up on the lcd screen. The only error is "Replace...


From past experience and current research, you can not scan with an error on the LCD screen. Therefore you would have to replace the ink before the scanner will work.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Can u use the scanner on a hp pcs 1610 all in one inkjet printer without the color ink cartridge?


Hi, the answer is no you cannot, the printer will only work if both cartridges (black and color) are installed, if you install just one the check print cartridge light will flash.

Hope this helps

Can i still scan photos if my ink is empty


YES, it will scan without the printer cartridges. I picked up a Canon MP160 for free at a yard sale this morning. It didn't come with either ink cartridge. When I powered it up, both the cartridge lights came on but it didn't display any error codes. I installed the Mac OS X scanner driver, and MP Navigator. I then used it to scan a 99-page text document into a PDF file. I have not installed the Mac OS X printer driver for it.

I just came up with the same problem. But if you keep pressing the right most button (the red one) for 5 seconds the message "replace ink cartridge" disappears and then you can use it as a scanner.
