unable to access 4655 for scanning with Apple Preview

Officejet 4655
macOS 10.15 Catalina

Unable to scan from my MacBook Pro running Catalina OS to OfficeJet 4655 printer.  How do I make that connection?

Edit:  I just realized this says Preview.  My apologies.  Try scanning with the device in Image Capture first and see if it adds it to the list of devices after that.


Image Capture should see the 4655 as a scanner with out needing any additional software.  I tested this to be sure.


Whether connected wireless or USB the OfficeJet is listed under the Shared section, which is collapsed by default.  If you click on Show next to where it says SHARED on the left side, you should see the 4655 listed.

If it is not showing there, double check the connection between the macOS client and the printer.
