I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it.
Go to control panel
look to left and find scanners and cameras
a pop up should direct you to scanning options and will lead your scanner to scan the item
hope this helps

13. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
