HP Deskjet 3052a won't scan at all

Hello, I've had this all-in-one device for a while now, and I moved into a new house with it, but during to move I lost the physical copy of the software. I installed new software from the site: and the printing works great, but I haven't been able to get it to scan once. I have it connected via USB cord instead of wireless.

When I try to scan it from the computer, it says my printer can't be found, and when I try to scan it from the printer it says my computer can't be found, yet it prints just fine.

I tried using the HP Print and Scan Doctor, downloaded from the posted link, and it told me that my software wasn't fulling installed.

So I reinstalled the software and nothing changed. Printing still works and scanning doesn't. Anything I can do to fix this?

Hello DeHayala,


Welcome to the HP Support Forums.  I understand that since moving you are unable to scan to or from your Deskjet 3052a.


I have included a document with detailed trouble shooting steps to take when you are unable to scan. There is a section dedicated to the different operating systems. It is important to follow the steps in order.


A 'Computer Not Found', 'No Computer Detected', or 'Connection Error' Message Displays During Scanning
