I have a Canon Pixma MP620 with an empty black ink cartridge. This particular printer is an "all-in-one" and can scan documents. However, every time I turn the printer on, the LCD shows the following error message:
U163 The following ink has run out. Replace the ink tank. [image of ink cartridge with "
bk" written at the top]
I can't afford a new cartridge right now, but I would still like to use the built-in scanner. However, I can't get rid of the "U163" error message. Therefore, I cannot use the printer user interface to actually scan a document.
How do I bypass this error message & use the scanner? I've pressed each button on the printer to no avail.
