bypass p

I want to use my scanner feature ONLY on my HP Photosmart C4780.  I have downloaded the driver to my Chromebook, so it will work on Chrome OS. Can I scan documents and somehow bypass the HP printer requirement that there be printer cartridges installed?

HP printer is designed in such a way that we cannot use any functional when the printer is on error state.


Put the cartridges to get the printer running.


Keep me posted, how it goes!
