Scan Directly to HP Laptop using HP OfficeJet Pro 8610

Officejet Pro 8610
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to scan directly to my HP Laptop using the Officejet Pro 8610. Under Computer my laptop is not listed. This is using a wireless connection . I have un-installed and re-installed the full set of drivers and have also used the HP Print and Scan Doctor a couple of different times without success. I am also unable to start the HP Printer Assistant to check the box to allow scanning to the computer However, I am able to scan to the computer by by selecting "Scan to Hp-Laptop X". I am able to scan directly to my 2nd HP laptop without issue. My laptop is running Windows 10 with the latest updates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@PaysonMtMan, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

I understand you have issues with scanning to the PC. This could be an issue with connectivity or drivers installed. Follow the steps below-

 

Update the printer firmware

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates. Refer to the document HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware

 

Check Windows Image Acquisition settings

Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) is a Windows service that helps communication between the computer and scanners. If WIA is not activated, scan jobs can fail.

  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. Try to scan.

 

If the issue persists,  I’d suggest you assign a public DNS to try and fix this issue. Here are the steps:

  • Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to get the IP address.
  • Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.
  • Go to "Network" tab - General - Select "Network protocols" - Select "Enable IPv4 only" (or similar) - Apply the settings.
  • Go to the “Network” tab – Click on “Wireless (802.11) – Then click on “Network address (IPv4)
  • Click on the radio button which says “Manual IP” and then click “Suggest a manual IP address” to give a manual IP address to your printer.
  • Click on the radio button which says “Manual DNS Server” and under manual preferred type 8.8.8.8 and under manual alternate type 8.8.4.4 (This is Google DNS server address)

Restart the printer and the router and check for issue resolution.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
