My printer has new carthridges prints from computer but does not make copies

Try scanning from MS Paint or Acrobat & see if it works. If it does, the HP/Vista software is probably at fault. If not, the scanner is probably faulty.

Did it ever work or did you just plug it in? (Did you load the correct drivers?)

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.

Prints but cannot scan

Check first if you can try to make a copy as standalone (without the help of the computer)

If that works it means scan feature is working fine and printer is not the issue.
then you might look to troubleshoot issues with software side

try making scan from MS Paint
click File then click from scanner or camera

if that works then the driver is not the problem but it could be HP software

How to scan

Slow / No response from scanner

The Scan Button on the Printer Does Not Function When the Product is Connected to a Windows Vista Computer on a Network

A 'No Scan Options' or 'Scan settings are not set' Message Displays on the All-in-One

Error Messages Display When Trying to Scan with the HP All-in-One Product

A 'Scanner Failure' Error Message Displays on the HP All-in-One Product Control Panel

Hope I help you a bit.

Message says "Scanner Failure" and "Unable to scan or copy"

Obviously its scanner error,the whole scanner assembly needs replacement.It could be the bulb or the scanner board, but upon replacing it needs both.

My hp deskjet printer can not copy or scan

Error message?
Just put something on the scanner glass and press the print button in the printer itself, leave the computer alone.
Did it work? if so... there's something wrong with the HP software, re-install.
That machine takes copies without the computer on, so, it should work.

try scanning from your printer/scanner program on the computer. My scanner will not work stand alone, but does work this way
