If it is your first time using your printer, then you need to install the driver for it to work.
If you have used your printer without any problem before then, there are two possible reasons why your printer/scanner is having that issue:
1. Connection error 2. Driver problem
First thing's first. Restart your computer and your printer. there are times that computers and printers just need a restart for it to work. Yes, it's strange but it's how things work with machines. They need rebooting to work smoothly.
If rebooting your computer and printer won't fix the problem. Here are the things that you can do.
1. Connection error: . a. Turn off your printer and turn it back on. Try scanning, if no go.. proceed to step b.
b. Unplug your printer from your computer and unplug it's power cord and press and hold the printer's power button to 5-8 seconds to completely drain the power. Plug it back in to the wall outlet leaving the connection between your computer and the printer still unplugged. wait until your printer completely turns on. Plug it to your computer and do the scanning process.
If all steps above don't work, then you need to check the driver.
Uinstall the driver of your computer by going to the control panel. After uinstalling it, then reinstall it by using the dvd that came with your printer. Follow the on-screen instructions and try scanning. It should work.
