I cannot scan anymore and the message is saying that the scanner is not connected, however the printer is working so it must be connected.


Sounds like the twain drivers for the Epson scanner part of the unit are not installed. When that happens the computer won't see a scanner, just the printer. Try re-installing the Epson software that came with the unit.

Hello.

Either the driver is corrupted or the scanner component is faulty.

Reinstall the driver for your device. If still a problem and the other functions work, but not the scanner, the scanner part is faulty.

Hope this helps.

Hi mil0153, go to this web site: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
Make sure your printer is connected to the computer & the printer is turned on.
In Step 1. Click the emty circle next to, "Download drivers and software (and firmware)".
In Step 2, click "Start Detection >>" button. Allow HP to install some software. HP will scan your system & find your printer. HP will install the correct updated software & or tell you what is needed for the LaserJet 2840 to function correctly. Follow all on screen instructions.

Good luck mil0153!

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
