Scan an original
You can start a scan from a computer or from the control panel. This section explains

You can also use the HP Photosmart Software to scan an image,

To use the scan features, your device and computer must be connected and turned
on. The printer software must also be installed and running on your computer prior to
scanning. To verify that the printer software is running on a computer running
Windows, look for the device icon in the system tray at the lower-right side of the
screen, near the clock. To verify this on a computer using the Mac OS, open the HP
Device Manager, and click Scan Picture. If a scanner is available, it will launch the HP
ScanPro application. If it is not available, a message appears to let you know that a
scanner was not found.
Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in your Windows system tray
can cause your device to lose some of its scan functionality and result in the No
Connection error message. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by
restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
