I'm having problems with my HP Photosmart 6520 when using the scan to email function. When I press scan to email it comes up with "Preparing scanning..." on the screen, but it doesn't get past this stage, it appears to just get stuck in a loop. After several minutes it will stop and the error message is
Temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."
I have unplugged the printer and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Can you advise how I can solve this?

I see that you're having problems with the scan to email app. I have a couple of questions for you.
Have you setup ePrint?
Do any of the other apps work?

Same exact symptom on my 6520 today. I have scanned around 50 documents over the past two weeks. Suddenly stopped working today after successful scan to e-mail about 2 hours earlier. Tried unplugging printer. Tried resetting it to factory defaults. Looks like I'm off to dig up how to do the hard reset of everything again, just like the last time I had a problem with the 6520. I'm not sure scanning should be this hard...
