I have a hand-me-down PIXMA MG 3222. I only want to use it to scan and save old photos to my laptop. It doesnt have any ink cartridges. Is it possible to scan without cartridges installed?

Greetings. Not possible. Printer manufacturers require that ink be installed. True for consumer printers (Canon, Epson, HP, Lexmark) . Professionsal products might be different. I have not tried to scan from the 3 image runners we have without ink installed, they might work. But consumer printers, no.
