Printer Not Scanning

Are you experiencing issues with your HP LaserJet MFP M234dwe printer when trying to scan documents? Don’t worry. You’re not alone! Many users have reported this problem, and you can fix it in no time.

  • First, make sure your printer is properly connected to your computer or network.
  • If your printer is properly connected and turned on, try restarting both your printer and computer. This can help reset any potential software or hardware issues that may be causing the scanning problem.
  • Next, check to see if your printer’s scanner drivers are up-to-date. If not, update them, and then try to scan the document.
  • If updating your drivers does not work, try checking your printer settings. Ensure that the scanning settings are correctly configured and that the right resolution and file format are selected.
  • Another common reason for scanning issues is a malfunctioning scanner. Check the printer’s scanner glass for any visible damage or obstruction, and clean it thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
  • It’s also a good idea to check if the scanning lamp is working properly.
  • Finally, if none of these solutions work, consider resetting your printer to its default settings. This can help eliminate any software glitches that may be causing the problem. In this printer’s case, you can do it only from its EWS page.
  • Visit your printer’s EWS page.
  • Go to the System tab. Click “Service”> “Restore Defaults.”

With a bit of troubleshooting, you can get your printer back up and running in no time.
