HP Officejet 6110 - Scanning Error. Cannot connect to PC

The printer and fax work fine so obviously it is connected to my PC OK, but when I try to scan, nothing happens for about one minute, then it says" Scanning Error. Cannot Connect to PC". I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

Keep getting scanning error message

How do you have the HP6110 connected to your system? This problem can sometimes be caused by using to long a cable between the computer and the multifunction printer. I would use a short cable (6 foot or less) to make sure that it's not a communications problem. This ususally manifests itself with an error message while scanning although the printing function work ok.

How do I fix an "error 442" on the fax part of my hp 6110 all-in-one

Per HP:


An error occurred during transmission after one or more partial pages were sent. The sending machine was unable to restart the control channel connection(handshake) before sending more data. This error typically occurs when the receiving fax disconnects after receiving part of a page. It can also be caused if the receiving fax is using a fax format incompatible with the HP fax (usually during color faxing).


Try the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

Before scanning from the printer front panel, make sure your Solution Center is properly installed. Try scanning from the Solution Center first. The status of the printer should say ready before scanning.
