This is a great location to get assistance! I read your post and see that you are unable to scan to your computer. I would like to help you resolve this issue. 

 

However, I will need a few details to provide an accurate solution,

  • How is the printer connected to the computer, wired or wireless?
  • Did you do any hardware or software changes recently?

Meanwhile:

  • Restart devices and check driver scan settings.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • Make sure the printer power cord connects directly to an electrical outlet and not through a surge protector or power strip.
  • Close all running programs on your computer, and then shut down the computer.
  • Turn on the printer.
  • Turn on the computer.

Let me know how it goes.

The printer is being replaced under warrenty. This is the second time this has happened so I am concerned there is an under lying problem with this model of printer. Can anyone confirm this or am I just unlucky? The printer continues to print but does not scan or copy.
