HP Envy 5660 won't scan to computer

HP Recommended

I am getting an error message saying the computer is not connected. But it is. I can print fine, and everything is plugged in properly.

Hello Sparkerart,  

Green Turtle's plan is good, he's an expert.  You might try this first, your computer is just not wirelessly connected to the printer.  Reboot the modem, printer and computer, by turning all three off, leaving the modem off 60 seconds and then power up each successively in that order.  Let each completely turn on (no flashing lights).  Green turtle's ideas about "Enable Scan to Computer" etc. possibly are needed (and could be the root of the problelm).  Good luck.  I am not an HP employee.

Despite being connected and able to print wirelessly, computer message when I try to scan is that I am not connected.

Forum says uninstall and reinstall, but not online.  I have  no software with the printer, and was told to do everything (drivers etc) online. at hp.123.

I am so far quite disappointed with what was supposed to be an all-in-one printer/scanner.
