"Scan Only" is a secondary queue created (possibly) by the Print and Scan Doctor.

 

In particular, the older "Offline" version of the Doctor is capable of setting up this queue to manage (correct) issues with the printer port.

 

Normally, the "scan only" queue is accompanied (in Devices and Printers) by the main printing device (the printer).

 

Offline Doctor V5.0.7

 

  http://ftp.hp.com/pub/printers/hppsdr/patches/HPPSdr.exe

 

  • Download and Save the doctor to your computer
  • Open File Explorer > Navigate to the folder in which you saved the file (likely Downloads)
  • Execute the doctor – Answer any prompts /  let the process complete
  • Restart the computer, log in, and wait for the final steps in the Doctor to finish.
  • Check for any difference.

Connection Issues

  • Print and Scan Doctor Version 5.0.7 creates a secondary queue for printing with TCP/IP port.

 

After the Offline Doctor completes…

Verify / Adjust the “Default” printing device (Default Printer)

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

UNCHECK (clear box) Let Windows manage my default printer

Select (Left-Click) your printer from the list of printers > Manage > Set as Default

 

OR

Open Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on printer > Set printer as Default

 

NOTES – Selecting Default Printer 

  1. Do not select the printer marked as “Scan Only / DO NOT DELETE”
  2. Do not select the printer marked as “Fax”

 

Example Default Printer:  Set “Default” Printer = HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series PCL-3 (Net)

ReferenceHP Printers - Printer is Offline (Windows) > Step 2: Manually set the default printer
