It seems that the drivers for the All in One have got corrupted somehow. Do the following:
1. Disconnect the device.
2. Uninstall from Control Panel.
3. Reboot.
4. Reinstall the device drivers from the CD that came with it.
5. Reboot the pc/laptop.
6. Reconnect the device.
7. Allow Windows to detect and load the drivers.
8. After it tells you 'The new HW is ready for use' start using it.
All the best.

Scan does not respond, the printer works but the scanning does not seem to work and no scanner appears on control panel.

Please check whether the unit make stand alone copies fine. If the unit does not copies fine then this is a hardware issue with the scanning mechanism of the unit and unit needs a replacement. If the unit copies fine, then please get back to me, we will chek the software part.

My all in one printer/scanner is not scanning. prints and copies fine, but does not scan

Form your issue that you are able to print and copy but unable to scan it is very clear that it is a software issue. Copy and scan fuctions work this way.

Copy - completely related to hardware.
Scan - related to software

uninstall and reinstall the full version software from Hp for the operation system of your computer.

Suddenly stopped scanning and now won't copy or print b/c keeps saying it's still scanning. Canon mp830. Scanning Wizard starts but just dies in the middle. Any button I'm not hitting or solution you can...

Any lightning strikes locally?
You can try to reset back to factory by removing cartridges and head.Power off unit ,then unplug for 45 minutes.repower and install all.
Do a nozzle check and see what happens.

Lexmark X9350 will not scan or copy

Hi, have you had any luck repairing this? I also had this problem. I rang Lexmark support who, after 45min on phone, decided to send me a new machine. They did not want the old one back so I intend to try and repair it when I have time. I reckon the x9350 are prone to scan head problems as mine was making strange noises before it packed up and I have seen other reports of problems on various forums.
