Re: Printer not responding to the printer
What kind of printer is it?
remove printer from USB, and un-install, reboot
insert CD that came with printer and run installation "DO NOT CONNECT PRINTER" installation should ask what kind of connection USB or parallel AND it will tell you when to connect it
NOTE: connect it to a different USB port that the one you used.
again, this is general instructions as I have no clue on what printer you have.

Could you provide a printer brand and model number? Without that information it is nearly impossible to give you good advise. I would disconnect the USB cable from the computer then turn off the printer and disconnected the printer power cord from the electrical outlet. After about 1 minute plug the printer back into the outlet, turn the printer on and reconnect the USB cable to the computer. If you are lucky the printer might reset and start working again.
Check the power supply cords; make sure they are attached properly. If you are using a power strip, surge protector or any other device where the power supply cord is not plugged directly into a wall outlet, bypass them and plug the printer into a wall outlet; see if that changes anything.
If that doesn't work, remove the printer's power cord from the outlet and all the other cables that the printer connects to the computer to.
Wait 5 or 10 minutes for the printer's CMOS and RAM chips to power off completely.
After enough time has elapsed, plug only the printer's power cord into the wall outlet (do not hook up any of the communication cables in e.g. USB, or serial cables, or network cables.)
Then press the power "on" button.
If the error message is gone, power off the printer.
Uninstall the printer and all its programs from the computer.
Do a clean install and follow the procedures of hooking up the printer as though you are installing it for the very 1st time.
You may have to obtain firmware and/or software updates from HP on your specific printer.
You may also have to check with your OS vendor to make sure you have all the updates/service packs on your PC or laptop

Try removing your 926 icon in Printers and Faxes, disconnect the USB cable, restart your computer, reconnect the USB cable, see the 926 and install the driver again. If scan has never worked, you probably need a different driver.
