Scanning ink usage

kenzMay 29, 2009

I recently purchased an HP Photosmart C6380 all-in-one. Is there any way to shut off the head cleaning that this printer goes through between scans? There should not be any ink usage with just scanning but for some reason this unit does. I have printed out only two pages but have scanned numerous things. The ink is nearly out. Ouch! Any suggestions would be appreciated.
