Message "Scanner can't establish connection with PC"

Officejet 4630
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

HP Officejet 4630, Windows 7 (64 bit), wireless connection works - printer works OK, but scanner doesn't.

Scanning dialog - OK, then after clicking "Scan" message pops up on the PC monitor: "Scanner communication can't be established".

 

After running Printer and Scan Doctor I got a message "Driver error".

After uninstalling and installing software situation is the same. "Wireless direct" mode doesn't work as well.

Any help will be appreciated.

Message "Scanner can't establish connection with PC"

@Mikhail6 To check the functionality of the printer, I suggest we use the copier as a stand-alone device and check if the copier works fine,

If you continue to have the issues, this could be a hardware malfunction, however, if the copier works fine, try the below steps:

 

Press "Windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window.

Type "services.msc" to get Services - Go to "Print spooler" - Right-click and "Stop" the service.

Now again open "Run" - Type "spool" and ok - Go to PRINTERS folder - delete everything in that folder.

Go to services again - Start the print spooler.

Now check for issue resolution.

If the issue persists, unplug the USB cable from the printer (if present). 

Go to Control panel - Programs and feature - Select all the HP printer entries and uninstall them.

Now go to Control panel - Devices and printer - Select all the printer entries and remove the device.

Press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" (There is a space between .exe & /) and press enter.

Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.

Again, go to the Run window, type - "c:/programdata" - Go to the Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

Restart your computer.

 

Then, use this link to access the HP website, find the drivers compatible with your windows and install it: click here
