Hi. I just bought a Pixma MG5420. My most immediate need is the scan function. I would like to postpone opening the print cartridges to maximize their longevitty.
Am I able to set up and operate the printer, including the wireless connection, without the print cartridges installed?
For set-up, the control screen seems to be stuck on the images showing how to install the cartridges, which suggests that the answer to my question is No, but I'm hoping there is a work-around.

Hello jmueller ,
You will need to have the inks inserted to continue setup and use of the printer. Without the inks inserted to resume the start-up procedure screen, the printer will not progress any further.
