HP B210 will not scan

The unit is networked with a Win XP Pro and will not scan.  Scan to computer is activated, and the puter appears on the printer.  I've followed the complete diagnostics, uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers from the HP Website, and turned off the firewall.  I am able to print, but not scan.  The unit message is: The computer is not corresponding.  Please check the following, then try again.

*Printer software is running

*"Scan from Computer"  is acitivated via printer software.

The message on the computer is:  Scanner Unreachable     Scanner communication cannot be established. Ensure your product is powered on.... etc, etc.

 

I've seen some similar posts but no solutions, so your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Re: HP B210 will not scan

Hello uvantu

 

Do you have any firewall or antivirus software running? I found an article that states you can get the "Scanner Unreachable" error if BitDefender (a firewall application) is running. Since the printer is installed on the network it may be being blocked. Does the scan problem persist if you attach it with a USB cable?

HP Network Scan Fails to Install or Function with BitDefender

 

The second part of that article indicates to run the HP Print and Scan Doctor. This can also be found here: http://www.hp.com/go/tools.

Don't forgot to say thanks by giving "Kudos" to those that help solve your problems.

When a solution is found please mark the post that solves your issue.
