Good Day. A warm welcome to the HP community. I reviewed the case regarding issues with scanning as the first page is scanned upside down. I will be delighted to assist you here.

Superb description, brilliant troubleshooting and terrific observations made before posting. Kudos to you for that. 🙂

To assist you with accurate information I would require more information regarding this:

  • Which application is being used to scan? Is it an HP app or a third party app?
  • Did this happen after a recent software or windows update?
  • Did you update the printer’s firmware?

For now please try these steps:

  • If you are using a third party app to scan, uninstall and reinstall the latest version of the app and check if the issue gets resolved.
  • If it persists, Please update the printer firmware also by following instructions from this link:
  • Now check for issue resolution.

If the issue continues then perform all these steps to uninstall and reinstall the printer at the root level:

  • Uninstall the printer from "programs and features" which can be accessed by doing a right-click on the Windows button (Please have the printer Off and disconnected during uninstallation.)
  • Check in device manager, if the printer is listed there, please delete it. (Right click on the Windows button to access device manager)
  • Go to devices and printers, in control panel and select any printer listed there and you will get some options on the top.
  • Click on print server properties.
  • You will get a popup, click on the drivers tab and delete all the HP printer drivers listed there if any.
  • Delete all the instances of your printer listed in devices and printers.
  • Restart the PC.
  • Once the PC is on the desktop, press Win + R, it would bring a Run dialog box,
  • Type %temp% in the run box and click Ok or hit the Enter button.
  • It would bring up the temporary files folder. Delete the files in the folder (You might not be able to delete all the files).
  • If possible, delete the printer from the registries using Regedit or using any other 3rd party application.
  • Ignore the Regedit option if it cannot be done.
  • Restart the PC again.


Then download the latest full feature driver from and install it on the computer after selecting the correct operating system.

Connect the printer to your computer only when the setup prompts for the printer.

This should fix the issue.

You could also update the printer's firmware from the same link used to install the printer's full feature drivers.
