Printer Best Cheap Scanner/printer????

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this.

I have had a great inexpensive Cannon Mp190. It prints and scans, exactly everything I need for my jobs and my coupons.
Now I ran into a problem where the printer will no longer work with just a black cartrdige, and purchasing another color cartridge may not solve the problem.

A newer version of the same printer is only like $38 at Wallyworld. Not sure now much a color cartridge is, but I am thinking it would be cheaper all the way around to get a newer printer/scanner.

I had just opened a brand new black ink cartridge.. hasn't been used.

So, before I purchase the same brand, only newer version I thought I would ask if anyone recently purchased a good printer/scanner that runs only on black ink, or is inexpensive?

Any thoughts or pointers?

Yeh I agree with the OP, I have al exmark, needed a new black ink...so i go and the thing costs 50 bucks! AHHHHH Um i'm not paying that when i could buy a new printer, so i'm in the same boat....i noticed HP and kodak have the cheapest ink cost but haven't been able to research further! buzzillions is a great site to look up reviews on almost anything!!!

Have you guys tried refilling your ink cartridges . I buy my black ink in a 8 or 12 oz bottle for just 20 dollars and it works just fine . I have the canon printers from walmart also the pixma mp250 and it works just fine and have lasted a long tome also . Im able to refil about 10 times befor print quality is affected and I always refill before its out of ink .

It seems that at least with the Kodak printer the cartridges have a chip in them that counts the pages and even if you refill them it still says it's emtpy! Grrr. Also the one I have at least (cheap from Walmart) *uses* color ink to print black. Why I dont know so when the color is out it wont print ANYTHING. another GRR.

the canon pixma from walmart has a reset button and if you hold it it will reset the ink light is still on but that will still allow it to print

Not really any more. They are now putting chips on the cartridges so that when you refill them it will still show they are empty and won't print.

If you want just a b/w printer/scanner I would suggest going with a Brother multifunction that is laser. We use one as a fax machine at our office and the cartridge lasts forever. If not a Brother then I would go with a HP. I avoid Epson, Lexmark & most of the others. If you check out a laser it will cost more initially but you will save in the long run with the cost of inkjet cartridges verses a laser cartridge that lasts for a lot longer. Also on a laser when it is near being empty take the cartridge out and shake it and put it back in and you will get quite a bit more use out of it before it is empty.

The canon printer from walmart still show as empty after being refilled but if you hold the reset button for 5 seconds it resets and allows you to continue printing

i do not recommend getting the cheapest printer strictly because that often means it has the most expensive ink. We recently got an HP Photosmart Wireless All-in-one and it has been wonderful! the ink is super reasonable too which was the main reason we bought it. Look at the cost of replacement cartridges before you buy!!!
