Canon PIXMA MP980 help?

I purchased this all-in-one secondhand on my birthday Friday. It starts up fine, and it came with the cable, but not the installation CD. That was fine, I thought I could just download whatever I needed.

 

I was wrong. So, so wrong. 

 

I installed several applications and drives hoping that I'd have the right one, but the best I can do is get the computer to tell me that the ink needs to be replaced. The scanner won't scan and send to the computer, nor will the printer pick up the paper I loaded in the rear tray. Am I missing something?

 

It was only $5 so it isn't a big deal, but the ink is really affordable versus other printers. I'd really like to get it to work

Hi SPerry,

 

What version of Windows is installed on your computer?

 

If using a Mac, what version of OS X is installed?
