If the Toolbox was not installed with the other printer software components, you can install it
using the installation program on the Starter CD.

Without being able to see your machine, I'm going to make an educated guess at your problem. Many times, when a printer is used over a network, only the printer driver itself is actually installed on each user's machine. Utilities, such as the HP Toolbox, may not be installed. If your network administrator allows it, you could download and install the complete printer software package off the HP website, which I'm highly confident would solve your issue. If not, I'd advise you to contact your IT person and have him/her install the complete package for you.
Good luck and I hope this helps. Please let me know, and also provide a rating if you deem it appropriate.
Network Configuration page NOTE The Network Configuration page is only available on the HP LaserJet p2015n, HP LaserJet p215tn, and HP LaserJet p215nw printers. A Network Configuration page prints whenever a printer configuration page is printed. You can also print a Network Configuration page by pressing the network Reset button at the back of the printer The Network Configuration page provides information about the network configuration, including the IP address, firmware revision, network statistics, protocol information, and so on. The Network Configuration page automatically prints when you print a configuration page from the control panel. ENWW Printer information pages 37 Using the HP Toolbox The HP Toolbox is a Web-based program that you can use for the following tasks: ● Check the printer status. ● Configure the printer settings. ● View troubleshooting information. ● View online documentation. You can view the HP Toolbox when the printer is directly connected to your computer or when you are using a supported network connection. You must have performed a complete software installation to use the HP Toolbox. NOTE You do not have to have Internet access to open and use the HP Toolbox. However, if you click a link in the Other Links area, you must have Internet access in order to go to the site associated with the link. See Other links for more information. To install the HP Toolbox, you must install the TCP/IP protocol and the most recent version of the Java™ Virtual Machine on the computer. You must also install the DOT4 protocol for all USB connections, LPT connections for Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and LPT1 connections for Windows 98 S.E., Windows Me, and Windows NT 4.0. See the system administrator or computer manufacturer's documentation for more information about installing the TCP/IP protocol and the DOT4 protocol.
This has happened to me on several occasions with a couple of different HP all-in-one scanner/printer's. The HP driver/program itself may be in a phase where it's attempting to complete a scan, which would prevent you from scanning anything else. You can confirm whether or not this is the problem by restarting your computer and attempting another scan. You'll get an error message saying the scanner is currently in use.
You may want to try to completely remove the installation files for the scanner, and reinstall either from the disk or let windows install it for you via "plug and play". Then update the drivers from hp's website. See if that resolves your problem.
