HP ENVY Photo 6255 All in One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My scanner stopped working through HP Smart. I tried the Print/Scan Doctor software, but it does not seem to help.  The HP smart says that the Printer status is unknown. I tried re-installing the printer but this did not help. I noticed that the IP address for the printer is off by one digit from the IP address of the printer listed. I can print from my laptop via wireless printing. I can sometimes scan using the scan shortcut although it is unreliable. Is there a way to fix this? If so what steps do I take. 

The software did work previously and then one day it didn't. I am not sure if a update mess this up. Thanks in advance for any help.
