The majority of ink-jet printers has an ink sensor used to detect the amount of ink remaining in the cartridge. When cartridges goes empty, the driver will notify you.

Unfortunately, it seems that driver (perhaps the printer itself) doesn't allow to work without the sensor in perfect conditions; thus, I think you have no choice other than carrying printer to service.

What error codes is it giving you?  Which lights blink, and how many beeps?  This information will enable to pinpoint the exact problem and enable us to arrive at your solution.

The  Canon BJC 610 has a known problem with the INk sensor testing as bad or giving the error as such. What you need to do is either call canon or hit the web site:

GREETINGS!

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
