  1. Printer / Scanner Error


    I am running Windows 10 and all of a sudden I am getting the following error when I try to print or scan anything.


    Error = 0x800706ba


    I shut down my computer and waited awhile and then my system came up clean but I am still getting the error.


    I googled the error number and saw that there is a hotfix for this error and it says it is for all platforms. When I go to download this fix it says it is for windows XP.


    I did not download the hotfix.


    Can anyone please help me with this problem?


    Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 recognizes my printer+scanner only as a printer.

    Hello,

    Another method you may try is to uninstall and reinstall the printer. The following are the steps:



    Remove your printer

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Devices > Printers and Scanners.
    • Under Printers & scanners, find the printer, select it, and then select Remove device.


    Install or add a local printer

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Devices > Printers and Scanners.
    • Under Printers & Scanners, see if your printer is installed.
    • If you don’t see your device, select Add a printer or scanner. Wait for it to find available printers, choose the one you want, and then select Add device.


    On the other hand, we suggest also that you reach out the manufacturer of your printer/scanner for the driver availability or work around.



    Regards.

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Step 1: Go to store.
    Step 2: Buy a less shitty printer.
    Step 3: Pick up some beer while you are there.
    Step 4: Enjoy both your new printer and your beer.

    In all seriousness, I have had more issues with Lexmark printers and their shitty drivers then any other manufacturer, HP is a close second though.

    However, if you don't want to get a new printer*Laugh :laugh:, and I can understand that, when my Lexmark was giving me the same troubles in Win7(and Vista) I had to make sure the Windows firewall was ON and the firewall service was enabled and running. After I shared it I could re-disable the firewall and firewall services.

  4. Printer / Scanner Error

    Scanner

    Hi JSmith,

    Your scanner should be installed first in order for your computer to recognize it. Since you're using a printer/scanner in one, you need to add or install the device as a printer and as a scanner. Make sure that the printer is properly connected to your
    computer and is turned on when you try to install it. Follow these steps:

    • Click Start > Settings > Devices.
    • Under Add printers & scanners, click the + sign and select
      Add device.

    Once added, try checking if you're able to scan. If your computer still doesn't detect the scanner, then we suggest that you get in touch with HP Support for further assistance.

    Feel free to let us know if you need more information.

    Regards.
