Welcome to the HP Forums!
I appreciate you taking the time to share your concern and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.
I reviewed your post and I understand that you are unable to open the scanned files.
I’d love to help!
In order that I may provide you with an accurate solution, I will need a few more details.
When was the last time the printer was working fine?
Are you scanning documents to PDF?
What software are you using to open the scanning documents?
Have you made any software or hardware changes on the computer?
Have you performed any troubleshooting steps before posting?
Meanwhile, I recommend you to use Adobe reader to open the PDF files and check if it helps. Here is how it is done.
- Right-click the PDF, and then choose Open With > Choose default program (or "Choose another app" in Windows 10).
- Choose Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat in the list of programs, and then do the following: ...
- Click OK.
Let me know how it works and you have a good day ahead.
