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

When I press the scan button, it gives error message about documentation


you should look through the documentation that came with your scanner. The error message is probably telling you to read the documentation for troubleshooting why the scanner isn't working. Most documentation that comes with devices like that has a troubleshooint section that describes common problems.

Epson V100 Document Mat error


Please check if the option cable connected on the back of the scanner is seated properly.
If you are using epson scan to scan from your computer, try to scan using either professional or home mode and choose the correct settings.
