"Document Feeder Empty" - Why am I getting this in my status?

Hi, I have a similar problem. When I try to scan from the flat bed I am getting a message up which says 'Automatic Document feeder is empty' - but I am NIOT using the ADF..... I have adjusted paper and tried again to no avail.

This has never happened since I biought the printer - but has started since my iMac had an OS Catalina update two days ago - cannot scan at all now!! Can you help please.

@Mario-pol, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

HP Easy Scan is not yet supported with 10.15 Catalina. Instead, you can use Apple Image Capture. A compatible version of HP Easy Scan should be released soon.

Can you please put an announcement to let us know once it is ready.  Truly wasted 2 hours of my day today on this.  Not fair.
