SOURCE: HP All-in-one will not scan

Had the exact same problem - All-in-one would not scan with the same error message. Found the solution. Go to my computer (in XP) -> Control Panel -> Printers and Other Hardware -> View Installed Printers. Look at the bottom left in the side column of the window, you'll see "Scanners and Cameras". Click that option and it will walk you through the process. It works perfectly! Good luck!!

Ink light of my tx101 keeps blinking

Hello, Amit.

From FixYa, give this a try:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

Hope this helps.

I can't manage to scan directly from the scanner

Have you installed full software from the CD that came with the printer?
if not do that first, do you mean that you cant push printer button and automatic scan to computer?

FULL NVM RESET:-Take the Ink Cartridges out, Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold OK/ENTER and CANCEL button and connect the Power cord while holding the buttons.keep Holding the buttons until the printer goes off ,release the button and Push the ON button.
