    1. Learning that scanning is not permitted unless the cartridges are installed.

  12. I was getting this error. I observed that the catridge door was open by mistake. The power LED was also blinking (on off on off..). Just closed the catridge door and everything normal.

  14. it looks very stupid Illogical, I wanted to use my scanner and the scanner wont work because of ink cartridges.
    Eventually I had to get new ink Cartridges to Scan documents.
    Seems no logic, anyhow after installing new cartridges the scanner is now working

  19. I only use mine as a Scanner on my Office PC. And this is killing me because it takes hours to scan paperwork. Another issue is do you know that if you print in Black only it still uses your Color Cartridge. What's up with that? But I try turning it on and off and sometimes I get lucky and it will scan. Otherwise I have to wait and keep trying it over and over again until it finally scans my papers. I have had this Printer for a long time so I guess it's time to buy a new one. And I will buy a Kodak All-in-One for my next one. Since I have heard nothing but good reviews on them. Am I going to have to hook up my Old Scanner from 1998 (My Microtek ScanMaker 4800)? Sorry Canon, But I will never buy another printer from you ever. And I own a Computer Store, I'm an IT and I promise you that I won't ever recommend your printers or sell them at my store. Does anyone have any advice for me? I need to finish scanning all of these papers and make them into a PDF File. That is why I use to love this Printer / Scanner.
