Re: Scanned pages randomly flipped upside down

HP Recommended

I am seeing this as an issue within the printer software, considering so many printer models are affected by this "bug" that was magically resolved with some form of firmware update, though I don't think it's hardware related.  This issue exists with my 9019 Premier printer as well, and it has the latest firmware self installed on it. (001.2042A (70.2MB) updated Nov 17, 2020, according to the /drivers/selfservice/hp-officejet-pro-9010-all-in-one-printer-series/23903057/model/23918431 page) .  The randomization occurs when using HP Smart, or any Windows controlled environment.  The issue is OMITTED when scanning to a USB device.  Something within the software driver is causing the issue.  OCR, OMR, or some other image recognition controller is causing pages to falsely flip documents prior to output.  There is no option to disable image recognition within the scan preview window, nor is there an option to keep orientation of scanned set.  This is a driver/software issue outside of the printer, and not necessarily a driver issue.

Hi @LiquidZero,


I'd like to help!


Let's try and uninstall the printer software from the root level on your PC and install the full feature printer software.

First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present.

  • Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP printer entries and uninstall them.
    • Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
    • Restart your computer.
    • Click the bottom-left Start button on desktop, type device manager in the search box and tap Device Manager on the menu.
    • Once in device manager, click on the view tab in the top & choose “Show hidden devices”.
    • Then from the device manager list, check the entries under “Printer” – If there are any entries, please right click and choose “uninstall” – In the confirm device un-install pop-up, make sure you select the box which says “Delete the driver software for this device". 
    • Also, check the entries under "printer queue" and "imaging devices" and repeat the same exercise. Delete any printer entry or any entry which says “Unknown device”.
    • Once done, close device-manger. Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
    • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
    • Again, go running window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.
    • Once done you can try cleaning out your temporary files and cached files. You can try using automated applications like some cleaner software's that you can download from the internet.
    • Now restart your computer again.
    • Open the Run window again, type “services.msc” and press ok to get services window.
    • Scroll down to “Remote Procedure Call (RPC)” – right-click and go to properties. Make sure the service is started and startup type is “Automatic”.
    • Now scroll up and go to “Function Discovery Provider Host” – right-click and select properties – Change the startup type to “manual” and start the service.
    • Repeat the same exercise on “Function Discovery Resource Publication” as well
    • Windows image acquisition stop and restart the service 

Reinstall the drivers from Software and drivers page


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

I am having the same problem both on a new 9010j I just bought and 8715 at home. Is there a quick fix. This is an incredible waste of time when scanning a lot of pages that you then have to flip.
