ok, what is the error you get when you try to print to the PhotoSmart?

I can print but can't scan because the webscan is enabled. I don't know how to put it back online.

Click start, type in mspaint and press enter

In Mspaint, click on the down arrow then click on From Scanner and it should now scan for you and you then save the file

Where do I go to get Mspaint?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.

This was part of the instructions but you may have missed this

Please click Start, then type in

mspaint

And press enter

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

I very little about computers setup. Please let me know what it will cost if I give permission for you to handle the problem remotely.
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.

It is $39 (a lot cheaper then a computer technician to visit you) then I can connect to your computer and do this for you.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
After you have corrected the problem what will be the total charges?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.

I do not see what you initially paid, this you need to email customer service at***@******.*** but it is only that one time deposit you made in addition

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
