HP Smart doesn't recognize scanner but I can print

HP Recommended
LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I try to scan through HP Smart, it tells me my printer is offline and it cannot scan.  But if I print a document, it prints fine.  Only scanning results in this problem.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Follow the steps below to resolve scanning and connectivity problems using the HP Print and Scan Doctor

  1. Download the HP Print and Scan Doctor.
  2. Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer.
  3. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor is open, click Start, and then choose your printer.
    • If your printer is not listed, turn it on and click Retry.
    • If there is a connection problem, follow the instructions in the tool.
  4. Click Fix Scanning.

Check Windows Image Acquisition settings

  • 1. In Windows, search for and open View local services .

  • 2. In the Services window, scroll down the list and find Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) .

  • 3. Look at the Status and Startup Type values.

    • If the status is Started or Running and the Startup Type is Automatic, WIA is running correctly. Skip to the next step.

      Making sure WIA Status is Running and Startup Type is Automatic

    • If the status is Disabled or no status displays, right-click Windows Image Acquisition (WIA), click Properties, click the General tab, select Automatic from the Startup type dropdown menu, and then click Start.

      If the Start button is grayed out, go back to the Services menu, make sure Remote Procedure Call, Shell Hardware Detection, RPC Endpoint Mapper, and DCOM Server Process Launcher are running and set as Automatic, and then start WIA.
