  • HP Envy 5660: Win 10-5660 Envy - Scan of the computer is enabled no longer

    I understand that this has been reported several times by others.  No proposed solution does work for me.  Periodically, I get the error message "Scan of the computer is no longer enabled.»  The network connection to the printer has been lost.  This started only after the upgrade to Windows 10.  This is a false message I still able to scan from the printer.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled but false error notifications always appear.  I can easily disable scan of the computer in the management of the scanning and uncheck the box there.  There is a work around.

    Is - this position of HP to use the autour work and waive the functionality of scanning directly from the printer?

    Thank you.


    Thank you for using the HP Forums.

    The pop-up message occurs because the software is not able to detect the Scanner (because the Scan of the computer is activated).

    Win 10 uses WSD and WSD is maybe not as reliable (where the popup).

    Maybe you can try a TCP/IP port?  What could reduce disconnect it temporarily.

    Can you try using a TCP/IP port?

    Creating a TCP IP port:

    1. print a Configuration Page to get the printer IPv4 address (you can also tap on the icon wireless on the front panel of your printer to obtain the IP address)
    2. on your PC, go to the Panel control, devices and printers, right-click the printer and on the left, click printer properties, select the Ports tab.
    3. click Add Port, select the Port TCP/IP Standard, then New Port and follow the instructions in the wizard.
    4. Enter the IP address of the printer.

    This video resource will show you how do:

    Create & port use TCP IP

    Note that you can ALWAYS go back to the original port the HP software installed by selecting the HP port on the Ports tab (in the properties of the printer)

    Let us know if it works.

    Otherwise, if you do not use the function "Scan to Computer" regularly, you can always disable.

    Thank you.

  • HP Deskjet 6700 Premium: Scan of the computer no longer works

    When I run a scan of my printer to the computer, I get an error message that says that there is no connection, or that the application of scanning the computer is currently in use.

    I can Scanner normally when you use the HP Scan SW initiated from my computer. I can Scanner normally the printer to a memory device to the printer.

    The HP Print & Scan Doctor SW says that everything is OK and day.

    Any ideas?


    Thank you for using the HP Forums.

    YUO must ensure that you have the FULL features software installed first and then turn on computer scanning.

    If you have not installed the software FULL of features, the following resources will help you:

    How to scan to computer

    Once you have installed the software:

    1. click the printer (on your desktop) and it will bring up the HP printer Assistant.
    2. in the menu analyze, there is a 'manage Scan to Computer', click on that.
    3 make sure you have "Enable" Scan of the computer. Also, make sure that the tab "automatically start Scan of the computer when I connect Windows" is checked if you want to perpetuate this feature. (the following video will show you how)

    If it does not, we suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the software features FULL.

  • How can I enable ICS?

    For some reason, my HP Vista computer disconnects all internet access whenever I try to turn on ICS.  It reconnects instantly when I disable it again.  How can I enable ICS without my computer's internet access "Local"? only

    I'm trying to run my Xbox360 turned off the WiFi computers via ICS, enabling to work perfectly.  I tried to fill, but after hours and hours of "Red Bar" (gal/poor connections) I really want to come back to the method that I knew worked without a hitch, ICS.


    I'm sure you're account than a help on the line 9opr of edition of the help link above) is possible when, assuming that the configuration is a standard.

    There is no way to account for special configurations and changes (such as your static IP number), unless the OP is aware of them and disclose.

    Try to reset every thing by default, including the network menu of X - Box, and then configure it as if it is a new system that came in 'yesterday '.

    Also check the firewall to ensure that it adjusts to the new intellectual property regime and does not block the traffic.
