I just bought the HP 6978 and can not get the scanner to connect to the computer. My computer shows on printer.  It keeps saying make sure the printer is connected to the printer.  The Hp scan and printer doctor jams as I am trying to fix this.  Please help me connect the scanner to the computer

@jen120702

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 

 

As I understand the printer works, however, the scanner does not,

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution: 

Did you upgrade the windows 10 or install any updates recently?

Have you installed the latest drivers using the HP website? If you haven't, please install the same using this link: Click here

 

If you have issues with the scanner connection, try the steps mentioned on this link:

Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum.  Have a great day!
