Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.I am very sorry about your HP printer issues. So after the upgrade, you have not reinstalled your HP printer software and it will still print. But it cannot scan so you tried to reinstall it but it will not reinstall. Is this what happened?Please let me know so that I can help you further.Best regards,Jess

Thank you for writing back with that information and I am very sorry about the persisting issues. But was the reinstall successful? Or did it give you an error during the reinstall process leaving the software still not installed?Or did it install fine but still the scan won't work?

Thank you for writing back. I truly understand and respect your decision regarding remote access, If you want, I will just provide you detailed procedures that you can try yourself. Please give me a moment.
Thank you for patiently waiting. I have already checked and it appears that your printer has support for Windows 10 already. This means that HP released a driver that is compatible for Windows 10.To install this new driver or software, please do the following:A. Disconnect the PrinterTurn off the printerDisconnect the USB cable of the printer FROM the computer. B. Uninstall the HP SoftwareWith the printer turned OFF and the USB cable unplugged, please go to Control Panel and then uninstall ALL of the HP drivers and softwareAfter the removal, do not restart the computer yet. Instead, please perform the CCleaner cleanup described in the next stepsC. Perform a CCleaner CleanupCCleaner is a free tool for home use. It is a trusted tool to perform cleanup of unwanted and orphaned files (left overs after software uninstall) and eliminate registry errors.Please refer to the link below for the detailed procedures in doing the CCleaner cleanup: the CCleaner cleanup, please restart your computer.D. Download the Windows 10 version of your Printer DriverPlease go to the link below to access and download your printer driver software: HP site automatically detects your version of Windows but if it does not, make sure to check it to Windows 10 so that you will get the recent Windows 10 drivers of your printer.E. Install the printer softwareThe last step is to actually install the printer software you downloaded in the steps above. Please do these steps:DO NOT turn on and connect the printer yetLocate the downloaded file and then double click on it to start the installation processDuring installation, you will be prompted by the install WHEN to connect the printer. That is the only time that you plug the printer's USB to the computer and then turn it on.The computer will then detect it and install all the drivers needed for it to work on your Windows 10 computer.I hope that helped.Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.Thank you!Best regards,Jess
