i have a MP240 Canon Multi functional device, connected via USB to Windows 7, all thing :drivers and so on are perfect installed.
The Problem: i dont have and "i dont need" the color ink cartridge(i installed only a new black cartridge), i have configured the driver for "Black Only" printing on "Plain Paper" but i can do nothing with the device as long as the color cartridge is not inside, Error code E,5 displayed(with 'c' LED flashes) and device doesnt print or scan or copy, neither via computer commands nor buttons on device.
My Question: MUST be both the black and color cartridge inside, to be the device alive? how can use the device without color cartridge?(i dont need it now)
thank u for every helping tipp
Setting the printer to print using only the black cartridge as you have done will allow you to print in black, even if the color ink cartridge is low/out of ink, however both ink cartridges will need to be in the printer in order for the printer to scan, copy, or print. Hope this helps!
