cannot scan with HP Smart (windows 10) via wifi

HP Recommended
HP ENVY PRO 6420
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I installed my all in one printer in wifi and I cannot scan with HP smart without having the following message : "Scanner problem
A problem with the scanner has been detected. Restart the printer and try again. If the problem persists, visit the HP support website." (in french : "Problème lié au scanner. Un problème lié au scanner a été détecté. Redémarrez l'imprimante et réessayer. Si le problème persiste, consultez le site web d'assistance HP.").

I have no problem to scan/print with my smartphone over wifi.

I can print in wifi but not scan from my PC and HP smart. I try to connect the printer with USB and I can scan with HP smart on my PC.

I suppose it's a problem with HP Smart but I absolutely need to go to wifi and to HP smart because on my work laptop, I can't install the software to scan and therefore bypass HP smart. Can you please help me quickly. Otherwise I would have to send my printer back to amazon and move on...
Thank you in advance,


Windows 10 Pro

Printer : HP ENVY PRO 6420 (firmware VASPLSPP1N001.2034A.00)

Same here with an ENVY Photo 6232...

 

W10 x64 20H2 install. No issue before the 20H2 update I think.

 

No issue with other Scan software like HP Scan.

HPO Doctor found no error because it use HP Scan.

 

Only HP Smart (last version : 121.1.193.0) have an issue... Grrrrrrrrrr

When I posted my post I didn't have 20H2 installed. I have since installed w10 x64 20H2 and have the same problem. I don't think it's related to Windows.

Hi, I have exactly the same issue on HP envy Photo 7830 since I updated HP Smart today.

I was able to scan before and since the update I have the same message 

"A problem with the scanner has been detected. Restart the printer and try again. If the problem persists, visit the HP support website"

I tried to uninstall and reinstall, restart the printer and the computer, used HP Print & scan doctor but the issue remained

But it is not a scanner issue, I can scan directly through the printer option and not a windows issue as I did the update of windows few days ago.

 

Best,

Thanks for the update:)  Its sems like HP is to busy to take action. They are more concern about witch languages you write in then fixing the real problem. It’s seems like it’s a bug on the latest patch and they need to fix it, either fix or let us download the latest update that actually works. This is bad customer treatment:( 

Lets hope something Happens soon.

 

Kindly regards

Hi @kilebo,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below suggestions-

 

Uninstall the HP Smart App

 

Install all the available Windows updates

If it is been a while since you updated your Windows, that is the main reason why Windows says your HP printer driver is unavailable. Here are the steps on how to do a Windows Update to install all accessible operating system update.

 

If you are accessing Windows 10, then these steps are for you.

  1. Hit the Start menu and write an update. After that, click on the “Check for updates” option.
  2. Tap on the “Check for updates” option.
  3. After clicking on that option, Windows will install the updates automatically.
  4. When Windows completes all its updates, start your computer again and attempt to print a file to check if your printer works.

Install the HP Smart App and then try adding the printer

 

If the issue persists, install the full-featured drivers and then follow the onscreen instructions

 

And then try and scan.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
