use scanner without printer
Printer is broken. would like to use scanner and fax only
Can't do it. HP builds them so that it won't work unless the printer is working. Can't make any money if you're not using ink.
Found the answer on Consumerist.
On my Mac, I used Image Capture to scan successfully despite a missing print cartridge, open cartridge door, and flashing warning light.
Have not tried faxing because I scan, then use eFax.
