HP DeskJet 2540 All-In-One Printer scanning problems

HP Recommended
HP DeskJet 2540 All-In-One Printe
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My printer can actually still print, but when I want it to scan, a message comes up that says "The HP DeskJet 2540 series was not found".  I've tried uninstalling and then reinstalling, yet I still have the same problem.  Any help on this matter would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Run the Print and Scan Doctor

Download and run HP Print and Scan Doctor  to automatically diagnose and resolve printer hardware and connection issues.

After the Print and Scan Doctor opens, click Fix Scanning to test your scanner, and then follow any instructions to resolve the issue.

 

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.
