My HP OfficeJet 6500A is unable to scan. The error message is san driver unable to communicate. I have windows 8. I have tried switching everything off and this will help occasionally on flat screen.
When I try to use docufeed it will pull the first page through and then stop and send the commuication error.

Welcome to the HP Support Forums! I understand you are getting a communication error when trying to scan with your HP Officejet 6500A.
I would like you to run the HP Print and Scan Doctor- It was designed by HP to provide users with the troubleshooting and problem solving features needed to resolve many common problems experienced with HP print and scan products connected to Windows-based computers.
If you are still running into the error, please continue here: A 'No Computer Detected' or 'Connection Error' Message Displays during Scanning.
Let me know the outcome, I will watch for your reply.
