Dump this shit! I cannot scan nor print greyscale if the color tint is freshed out. Either it adds color tint to black and white documents or it is a complet liability.

Our model is MX497 and after I retried reinserting the cartridges and inputting the settings on the lcd display the error is gone. This is a brand new printer/scanner and how stupid is their design!!! I just cant correlate how ink cartridges are related to the scanner!
