Scan Failure

HP Printer 6978
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have a HP 6978 all-in-one printer.  I have uploaded the most recent software for printing and scanning.


When I scan with my item on glass plate, my scan is unsuccessful with the following message:


Scan Filed.  No items detected in the automatic document feeder.  Please place your originals in the automatic feeder and start scan again.


The point is: I don't want to use the Automatic Feeder.


Suggestions for solving this problem?  Thanks in advance.  R

Scan Failure

@Ronnyroll, Welcome to HP Support Community!


I understand the inconvenience caused. I would recommend you to go through a similar post that speaks about the scanning issues after Mac OS update. For more details, refer to the document HP Printers - HP Easy Scan Is Not Currently Supported in macOS Catalina


Also, try using the HP Smart App to scan. Refer to the document HP Printers - Using the HP Smart App (Mac) for help.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
