    I have a similar problem, except I can print. But when scanning I get a "Scanner Failure" message after each page. I have to power down after scanning every page.

Try HP's web site suggestions first.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077492&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=61736

If your sacnner still fails to function, uninstall everything for the Officejet through add/remove in control panel. (Power off printer before uninstalling).
Go to Hp's web site. http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
Step 1. Click, Download drivers and software (and firmware).
Go to step 2. For product, type in Officejet k60xi .
Power on your printer. (Wait for printer to fully power on).
Click, Start Detection>> button.
Allow HP to scan your system & install the latest software.
Follow the on scren instructions. (When finished, restart your PC). Test your scanner by scanning something.
If your scanner still fails to scan, you may be missing basic HP files loaceted in windows system & windows system32 folders.
(These missing files were not installed during your install of windows). Not your fault.

This error usually occurs when trying to scan, to make copies, or during the product start up.
Try the solutions in this document until the issue is resolved. It is not necessary to continue to the next solution if one solution resolves the issue.
Solution one: Check the scanner light
Make a color copy of any document by pressing the Start Copy Color button on the control panel. While the product is making the copy, slightly lift the scanner lid to see if the scanner light is visible.

Solution two: Check operating conditions
Extreme temperatures can affect the operation of the product. Make sure the operating conditions match those recommended in the User Guide provided with the product.
Solution three: Check the power connections

1.
Make sure that the product is connected directly to a grounded wall outlet and not plugged into a power strip.
2.
Make a color copy by pressing the Start Copy Color button on the control panel.
3.
If the error message persists, temporarily move the product to a different room or outlet, and then make a color copy by pressing the Start Copy Color button on the control panel.

My HP Photosmart C5240 will print from computer but will not scan or make copies.


Is there any error message displayed on the control panel of the printer just like one of the following:
Scanner failure, power off and on
Scanner System Failure
Scanner failed, cannot make copies or fax
Scanner failure. Unable to scan, copy, or send a fax
Scanner failure, cycle power

You may want to try following these steps:
1. Check if the scanner light does turn on when you initiated the scanning process, if not you need to reset the product.
2. Try using your other electrical outlet because your AVR or Surge Extension may not be providing enough voltage for the printer.
3. Try using dirty cycle, meaning you need to directly cut the power of your printer by pulling of the power cord from the rear side of your printer and wait for about 30 seconds before inserting again and turn it on.

If all these steps do not improve your printer functionality, you may want to call the HP online help and ask for replacement.

I have an hp digital copier, stand alone, not connected to any computer. When I turn the power on the warm up message lasts for a long time. It then tells me there is a scanner failure and will not print....


Hello.

Give this a try (from HP Support):

The Scanner System Failure error occurs if the scanner bulb is not being heated up to the correct temperature or there is some other issue with the scanner hardware. Verify that the scanner bulb is lit.
Power cycle the all-in-one product and see if the error comes back. Perform the steps given below to power cycle your all-in-one product.

1. Shut the computer system off, then disconnect the all-in-one product from the power source. Leave the all-in-one product disconnected from the power source for at least one full minute.
2. Reconnect the power, then restart the computer system.

If it does, take it off of any power strip and plug it directly into a wall power outlet. The power strip may not be supplying enough power to the product. Cold ambient room temperatures may also cause this
error. Try moving the unit to a warmer room and see if the error reoccurs. The unit will need to be serviced if the bulb does not come on.

Perform a semi-full reset by following the steps given below:

Caution: A semi-full reset will reset or clear the following information:

* Return the user settings to the factory defaults
* Delete language and country settings on some models
* Fax logs
* Fax headers
* Fax speed dial information

Hope this helps.

HP 1610 "scanner Failure" message


It MIGHT be that the unit is no good. The downside of ALL IN ONE products. BUT, unplug the power cord from the back of the all in one, then unplug the USB cable, then unplug power cord from wall. Wait 10 minutes and plug everything back in in reverse order and see if it works. If not it is bad.

I keep getting a scanner failure error


Let's try this. Turn power off, unplug the cord from the surge strip or wall socket. Leave unplugged for about 30 minutes, then plug back in and turn on. Hopefully this will fix your problem. Good luck.

Printer error


Just had this problem myself on my HP PSC 1610 All in one. After some fiddling, I found out that the power connector in the back was not fully inserted and must have slid out a little over time and with movement. After pushing it the whole way in, it started up fine and didn't give the error.

To make sure that was in fact the problem, I pulled the connector out slightly and started it up to find it gave me the error again. Then pushed it in the whole way, and it started up fine with no error.

Hopefully this works for others as well.

Our scanner wont work the printer and copier work fine


You should be able to find a white sticker on the bottom of the printer. The serial number will be there as well. If you have the PCS 1610 than follow the uninstall instructions given by Hp at this link:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00265838&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=390315&dlc=en&lang=en
Than go to the link below and download & install the 1610 software: HP Full Feature software/driver: No Network Support &
HP Image Zone/Photo and Imaging Unexpected Internal Error and Communications Failure Patch
That should fix your troubles. Look at the fixes while at Hp and if you feel you need other upgrades now would be a good time to download.
