Hello barnes9585

 

What operating system are you using and how is the printer connected to the computer? Do you receive any errors when you try to scan? In the meantime try running the HP Scan Diagnostic Utility as it may resolve your issue.

Hello barnes9585

 

How is your printer and computer connected (USB or network)? Did the HP Print and Scan Doctor find any problems? Also what is the exact error you are getting?

Hello barnes9585

 

Do you have another computer you can install the printer on to see if scanning is working? If the printer works fine on another machine the problem lies on the computer. This way we can isolate the issue. If not that is ok just let me know.

Hello barnes9585

 

Try the following procedure. It will remove all traces of the HP printer software and should let you re-install as if it was the first time. If you cannot find the folders let me know.

 

If software was downloaded and extracted to your system:

1. Type %temp% in the run field

2. Look for, and open the folder starting with 7z (Example: 7zS2356)

3. Open folder Util

4. Open folder CCC

5. Run the L4uninstall.bat

6. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer

7. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools

8. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

9. Download the full feature software and drivers

Officejet 6310 Software (Vista)

10. Run the download to reinstall the printer
