If you're using windows try using window's built in scanning camera wizard (this worked perfectly for my psc 1315). Go to Start -> settings -> control panel -> Scanners and Cameras

You can try resetting the printer.
Step 1. Unplug the power cord at the back of the printer while the printer is still on
Step 2. Press and hold the # and 6 button on the printer while the power cord is disconnected. And keep holdig the two buttons until you plug in the power back again.
Note : do not release the # and 6 when you plug the power cord back in. keep holding the two buttons until the printer would turn on then turn off or the printer would say anything about "reset"
Step 3. Try sending a fax after the successful reset of the printer

SOURCE: hp officejet 5600 wont turn on
I cannot solve that, but when my printer does that, i turn off the computor and printer then redo the cording, unplug and plug it back and usualy it is enough. Sometime the cartridge in not well inserted, or there is a paper jam.
I have a similar problem except that now my printer do not even have the question mark. It is like it is totaly out of power

This issue is common with every HP scanning software used with Windows OS which have a firewall running.
If you would try the following:
- check the task bar if HP digital imaging monitor is up and running
- if not, go to C:\program files\hp\digital imaging\bin and double click the file HPQTRA08.EXE
- now the monitor should run
- if not, pls reinstall the software (*)
- if yes, pls try to open HP solution center
- if solution center starts, pls try to scan or to fax
- if successful, no other steps are required
- if faxing is not successful, check in the printer folder, if you find a HP <device name> series fax entry
- if you cannot find it, unplug the printer and delete the entries in both the printer folder and scanner folder
- also run the software CD and start the uninstall_l1.bat and uninstall_l2.bat in the util\CCC on the CD (if 64 bit OS, the run the 64 bit versions)
- restart the PC with the loaded CD
- replug the printer and let it be reinstalled
(*) For a clean reinstall it is recommended to contact HP support. They know the best way to leave a clean system on the PC.
Hope it helps.

Tips for a great answer:
A flashing exclamation mark is typically associated with a sever cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print
cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics
of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. Have you tried replacing the ink cartridge with a new HP genuine cartridge to confirm?
NOTE: The cartridge's electrical wire
runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat
susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In
addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal
electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to
check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass
the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to
