HP Easy Scan can't find my HP Deskjet 2540

HP Recommended
macOS 10.14 Mojave

After working for years, my USB connected Deskjet 2540 is not recognized by HP Easy Scan. I open the app and it just spins. I tried removing the printer and putting it back in System Preferences. I downloaded a new version of EasyScan too. Not working.

@leahbrooks, Welcome to HP Support Community!

Are you able to print from the computer?

Have you tried using the Apple Image Capture to scan?


Refer to the document HP Printers - How to Scan (Mac) to learn about alternate scanning methods.


Keep me posted for further assistance.
