HP Cloud services error preventing scanning to HP OfficeJet Pro 8025

HP Recommended

I am having issues scanning to my HP OfficeJet Pro 8025.  The printer is setup wirelessly and prints fine and shows available ink.  When attempting to scan, the HP Smart app generates the below error when I choose to either sign in to HP Cloud services or create a new account.  Is there a way around using HP Cloud services to scan (I can connect via USB if necessary)?  How do I correct this HP Cloud services error?  I am able to sign into my HP account with no issues.  Thanks for any tips anyone can provide.

Welcome to the HP Community.

Reminder to those reading:

Do NOT respond to vermin who post phone numbers or email addresses.

HP does not post phone numbers or email in Community messages.



If you have not done so, Restart everything, including the router used to control your network.


The immediate solution is to use a different application to scan.

What you can use depends on your Operating System / version (not provided).


In general, if you are not using Windows, consider:


Webscan – located in the Embedded Web Server (EWS) – No additional software

NOTE:  Webscan feature  is not available on Laser printers

If the printer is on the network,

If the EWS feature is available on your printer,

First, make sure Webscan is "enabled"

  • Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar
  • Tab Settings > Security > Administrator Settings > Enable >> Check box next to Webscan
  • Click Apply to save any changes


  • Tab Scan > Webscan 
  • Set up Webscan the way you want it - for example, set the Source to ADF
  • Click Start Scan to scan your document / image using Webscan
  • After the scan is complete, Save the scan to your computer.


If you are using Windows (at least version 8.x), consider using HP Scan and Capture.



HP Scan and Capture - Microsoft Store (formally Windows Store) - Requires Windows 8 or higher


Windows Scan – Microsoft Store (formally Windows Store) - Requires Windows 8 or higher


and (Windows)

If you have not done so, download-save-install the Full Feature Software for the printer

HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software 


  • Download-and-Save the printer software (Full Feature Software / HP Smart / Easy Start)
  • Right-Click on the downloaded package and "Run as Administrator" to start the installation
  • Reminder:  If using Easy Start, select the Full Driver

➡️  About 2/3 of the way through the setup, you will be given the opportunity to select the software - select the "Full" driver set (as opposed to the basic driver).


Full driver provides print and scan functions (even if HP Smart continues to be stubborn).

Example - HP Scan Menu
