HP Officejet 7310 All-in-One Scanner problem

Help! After a month of working wonderfully, I came into the office one day and the 7310 tells me I have to reinstall the HP software. I don't know what happened overnight with it. After re-install, scanner only works on the glass - no longer taking from the feeder. Also scanner pop-up message keeps saying it's busy. Everything else still works fine. Company IT is no help, contracted HP rep is worse - he broke my last HP officejet. Anyone have insight to this problem? Thanks!

    Thanks Tonerman for trying to help! I should have added that I acquired this all-in-one from an employee that was laid off. IT doesn't keep track of equipment so packaging and receipts are history. Do you think this could be a firewall problem?

    When I attempt to scan, 7310 says I have to install software before scanning will work. Worked fine for a year or more. All other functions work, and scanner works when accessed via browser.

    I have exactly the same problem. I've reloaded that software several times. Has anyone found an actual solution? Taking it back is NOT going to solve the problem. I'm looking for a REAL solution such as a software patch or update.

    I have the same problem with scanner, will not scan to computer. Tells me I need the software. Contacted tech support, told me where to go & install complete installation, didn't help. So I uninstalled everything & then went on line & reinstalled, nothing, same thing.

I had this problem with my 7310 and again with my L7780. Never got scanner on 7310 to work except from browser, but when I got my L7780, the CD that came with it would not install the scanner properly. I went to and downloaded the installation software (300+MB), installed the printer using that, and all problems were solved. You would think that HP could figure this out, but I gave up after hours on-line with them and more hours on the phone. Good luck.

HP office jet 7310 all in one. when trying to fax it says scanner failure. Turn off power and restart. This accomplishes nothing. Suggestions?

This means that there is an internal failure of some kind (e.g. the scanner is stuck). Be sure that the shipping lock has been removed and try again. HP is very good about support, try contacting them through their website or by phone.

Good Luck!

OfficeJet 7310 FAX issue

Did anything happen prior to the issue? It almost sounds as if the DC controller (main board) has gone bad. What happens if you try to make a copy on it?
