Hi! My name is***** the scanner is the only thing not working on the printer, then it is probably an issue on the computer with the drivers. A driver is the software that tells the technology equipment what to do. Would you feel comfortable, with my help, to update or reinstall your printer drivers? If not, I can offer to remote into your system but there is an extra charge for that. I would be happy to instruct you via message.
