Hello my name is ***** ***** JustAnswer,

I am really sorry for the trouble you are facing in right now

But I'm here and happy to assist you today.

Resetting the printer might clear the error message.

With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

Unplug the power cord from the power source.

Wait 5 minutes

Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.

Turn the printer on and try to scan again.
