Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!
I understand you can print but can't scan.
I will be happy to help you.
There are a few different Deskjet f2100. Could you provide the full model please.
I would do a power reset to see if that will resolve the issue.
With the printer still turned on, disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer, if the printer has external power module with a detachable power cord disconnect it for 15 seconds and then reconnect it.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to drain the power.
Then disconnect the power cable from the wall outlet.
Wait 10 seconds and reconnect the power cable back to the wall outlet first, then the back of the printer and power it on again.
Make sure the printer is connected directly to wall outlet. (don't use a power hub or a surge protector)
Try and print a hardware self test.
Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
Did the self test print?
I would download and run the Print and Scan Doctor since it might resolve the
issue automatically. Find and Fix Common Printer Problems Using HP Diagnostic Tools for Windows.
Please let me know the results if you are still having issues.
Thank you for posting on the HP Forums.
Have a great weekend!

thankyou for your surgesstions. Printer wil not print test page.
Model is HP Deskjet F2180
Problem is power and ink/paper lights keep flashing.
Have read that this will need to be repaired by PC World.
I live in England and have littel faith in them.

Thank You for providing that information.
I have provided a document for Blinking Lights. Go to the section for Issue: The Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights are both blinking.
I believe that this will provide a resolution to your issue. Thank you
