Is that a catch 22, I dont need ink to scan, But it wont let me scan,
Canon pixma 210

Sounds odd. Maybe it is a peculiarity with that model?

My neighbour has the same model. And the same problem, NO ink = no scanning allowed. DUMB idea on Canon's part.

No, I don't think this fits the definition of Catch-22, as I understand it.

There's some things here that you could try to reset the printer: http://tinyurl.com/ygc4mxh

It's cannons lovely way of getting you to fork out more for ink than you did for the printer in the first place. You can get cheap imitation cartridges online, although you will probably void your warranty using them, and sometimes their cheap ink will clog the head if they aren't used for a while.

Umm hold the stop button for 5 seconds if it is a canon this will bypass the ink message and allow you to scan, fax and even print.
