If you have the old cartridge, remove it, put it back in and tell the computer that it is a new one and then lie your way through the set up procedure.  It obviously won't print in colour but it should scan and print using the black  cartridge.

I have a completely different printer but that worked for me.

So it seems to be  -   even if the cartridge is empty, leave it in the machine.     This appears to be the answer, but too late now if you've thrown it !!      >:(

Are you perhaps telling your printer that it will be  scanning a coloured photograph?

Probably yes  :D
If I could just get the E5 to stop flashing, then from what I've read I should be able to scan after it's been reset... But it just aint happening  :'( ;D
