My IT folks from my job are suggesting that the problem is with the nature of the App itself.

 

While HP Smart was a really good App, it was based upon Adobe Flash Player.  That's the hypothesis they're going with anyway.

 

Now that Flash Player is disfavored and being phased out, the App doesn't work with updated systems.

 

If so, that may explain why HP isn't answering these posts with a fix.

The Flash phase-out is not an acceptable excuse.  It was well-known and well-anticipated.  That HP allowed their software to be made redundant or obsolete without planning, without a replacement, without notification to users - compromising work efficiencies for how many tens of thousands of people or more - is what class action lawsuits are made for.

Same issue and very frustrated with trying to find a solution. Working from home...this is a necessity. Any updates from an HP employee?

PLEASE CAN'T YOU HELP US WITH THIS?  I DESPERATELY NEED TO SCAN AND THE SCAN FEATURE OR ANYTHING WON'T COME UP!

HP Recommended

 The provided link takes us to a page entitled "HP print is offline or not responding"  It says absolutely zero about scanning.  How is providing this link supposed to do anything except increase our already-incredibly high levels of frustration?  Seems rather cruel of you.  

HP Recommended

HP needs to resolve this now.  Why should local scanning be hung up because of an error on HP's end.  Please escalate this as this seems to be a systemwide error on HP's part.

Same issue here. Killing productivity for a lot of us today!

Same issue and will be buying a non-HP printer if not fixed today.....
