HP deskjet F2400 printer/scanner. scanner error message.

deskjet F2400 printer/scanner

Windows 7 / 64-bit

See above

No recent changes to computer or software.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the software

 

The scanner errors out, claiming that another computer or network member is using the scanner. There are no other computers, and I'm not on a network.

Re: HP deskjet F2400 printer/scanner. scanner error message.

In this document it discribes what to do if the scanner says another program is using it.  The steps should be what you need to clear up the error that your getting as well.  Let me know if it works or not.
