Hello Tony! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Were you able to scan with this printer on this new windows 8 PC previously?

Are you still able to print?

Are you still able to scan with this printer on the old computer?

Please let me know. Thank you,
