Scanning issue

HP Recommended
HP 9018
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello.  I have a 9018 Officejet pro.  on the HP smart app it tells me the computer is ready, but when I try and scan it tells me that the scanner is unavailable at this time.  Any idea how to make the scanner work?  Additionally, I can't seem to get it set up to scan to email correctly.

Welcome to HP Support Community


I would like to help

 

Are you able to make Photocopies?

 

Please ensure the printer has the latest Firmware https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/ish_1776648-1643972-16

 

Next assign a Manual IP Address

 

- Print a Network Config Page from the printer. Note the printer's IP address.

- Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.

- Choose the Networking tab, then Wireless along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.

- On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). If you do not know the range, change the last set of numbers (those after the last '.') to 250

- Use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)

- Enter your router's IP (on the Network Config Page) for the gateway.

- Enter 8.8.8.8 for the first DNS and 8.8.4.4 for the second DNS. This is Google DNS.

- Click 'Apply'.


Thank you
