Welcome to HP support community.

 

Check Windows Image Acquisition settings

  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.

thank you Sandy, it was a wonderful idea but I still cant set my scanner to work.  It has worked for the past 3 years.

I am wondering if it is goofy to have this many printers listed I only have one all in one HP printer I am trying to attach a snip of my printer options but it isn't working but I must have 7 different ones.

Hi @MiLi3

Welcome to the HP Support Community. To assist you better, I would like to know the following:

  • Which model printer are you using?
  • To which device are you trying to scan?
  • How is the printer connected?

For now, let us try these steps:

 

Run HP Print and Scan Doctor to diagnose and fix any driver issue (Win PC)

Click here to download the file. Once downloaded, make sure to run the file to start the installation and click on 'Fix Scanning'.

If the issue persists, proceed to the next step.

 

Use HP Smart app to scan and check if the issue persists

Click here to download and know more about the app.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted. 

 

Please click “Accept as Solution” if you feel my post solved your issue, it will help others find the solution.

Click the “Kudos, Thumbs Up" on the bottom right to say “Thanks” for helping!

Have a great day!
