HP Officejet 6600 - Will not copy or scan

HP Recommended

Hi,

 

I've been using Officejet 6600 for about 9 months. In last days, I am unable to scan or make copies, but it will print fine. I am running Apple OX 10.9.3. I have interchangeably used the direct driver and Airprint. 

 

I have restarted both iMac and Printer multiple times, deleted and reinstalled printer in System Preferences, pressed "on" button on printer for one minute while unplugged to reset, checked that firmware is up to date, and used both Apple Preview and HP apps for scanning, but nothing works. When trying to scan, I keep getting error that "scanner is busy". When I try to simply copy, the printer hangs and even cancelling print job, just crashes and obliges me to unplug printer. 

 

I would love some help to figure this out. 

 

Thanks,

 

 

AJ

Hi @AJCHP,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

I noticed that your HP Officejet 6600 will not copy or scan, and I am happy to help!

 

I appreciate all the troubleshooting you have done so far, as it definitely helps.

 

Just a question, if you lift up the scanner lid while copying, do you see the scanner bar move, or the light turning on?

 

In the meantime, please try the following:

 

 

Hope this will help, and have a nice day! Smiley Happy

Thank you for your quick response.  I tried all of your suggested solutions that I found from another post.  Unfortunately, I have re-downloaded software, installed and uninstalled....but it sounds like the issue is that the light does not go on because I cannot scan or copy.  The bar moves when machine turned on and that's it.

 

I am very dissapointed because I have only had this printer since 10/30/13 which means after 16.5 months it is no longer capable of performing 2/3 of its jobs.

 

Very dissapointed,

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post serial numbers and case details.

I have just started to have the same issue; the printer will not copy or scan.  I also tried the recommended trouleshooting of hard restart and re-downloading the software from HP. Neither of them worked. I am also disappointed as I had to set up another older printer to do my copying and scanning.  This is also an HP printer (a C4780;  I bought the 6600 to replace that one) which has network connectivity issues. So I now have two printers set up in my office to do the job that one should be able to do. I have been purchasing HP products for a number of years but I am not sure if I will purchase another HP printer when I purchase my next printer.
