HP printer Panel will not be upward, it will print. but NO Scan or Fax

I have an HP 6500 A more. The front panel will not light.  It will only print, no fax or scan.  Why?


It is possible that the printer has internal firmware hung up and is not responding or that there is a problem of internal with display electrical connection.

Have you tried a hard reset of the printer?

Unplug the unit when turned on

Disconnect the other end of the power cord from the wall jack directly

* Wait 30 seconds

* Unit back in

Thus, try to plug the device into a direct socket instead of a surge protector.  This is to ensure that the unit becomes the right tension works as expected.

If the hard reset does not address the issue, then try the steps outlined in the document, found here, to troubleshoot a non-responsive printer.  I hope this helps.

  • Very frustrated! Can print but cannot scan

    HI -.

    I have a PC with Vista and a C4280 all-in-one.  No problem printing, but it behaves as if there is no connection between the printer and the scanner when I try to scan.  I can't even open the HP Solution Center.  When I do I get the error: No. HP devices have been detected.  HP Solution Center will be closed.

    I did research on what to do and I tried to uninstall, then reinstall the driver, disconnect all cables and usb.  I know I'm not the only one who has this problem, but none so I see a ton of questions about topics I read enabled.

    Don't mean to be grumpy, but I am VERY FRUSTATRED!  Can anyone help?  Thanks a lot if you have any ideas.

Wait until your previous task is completed, and then try again. "The problem is the scanner is not in use and I do not see how to delete it.  This same printer/scanner device other users can connect their computers and scan from it.

    Please try the steps below...

    1. While the printer turned on, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
    2. Wait 60 seconds.
    3. Plug the power cord printer directly to a wall jack (bypass surge / power strip) and then to the printer.
    4. Now, make a copy.
    5. If the problem persists, select SETUP (wrench) > tools > Restore Factory Defaults
    6. Wait 30 seconds and then try to make a COPY.
    7. If the problem persists, open the lid of the scanner, and then press black COPY. Check if the scan transport moves and it's on.
    8. Transport scan is not turned on or move in all, then its time to replace the printer.

  • Photosmart Premium C410 can print but cannot scan

    This printer has been installed and working properly on our home wireless network.

    This morning (coincidentally or not?) after a Windows update last night, this morning, I can't open the solution Center HP to scan; He told me that my installation is incomplete.

    I then tried on our another computer (which has not been used recently and so doesn't have the latest update of Windows Installer) and was able to scan successfully.

    Now, when I try to scan directly from the printer, it does not recognize my laptop and scans directly to the other PC (and yet I can print to it).

    After several unsuccessful attempts, I finally got to re - install the two HP Solution Center and the printer (since the last driver available online) driver. Still having the same problem.

    I've removed what I could from Windows yesterday updated (although it is dated yesterday) but unable to remove one for Silverlight. It made no difference.

    I would like suggestions as to what I can do.


    Download and run the HP utility digitization of diagnostic located here. It can solve a lot of problems and if not give us a better idea of what is happening with the printer.

    Good luck!

  • MX922 prints but cannot scan

    I had some problems and had to reinstall my MX922 on my computer Windows 7 Pro (64 bit). I used an Ethernet cable during installation but then opted for the wireless. But Canon IJ Scanner selector always shows the MAC address for the LAN port wired on the MX922 so he reports that the scanner is not connected and I can't scan anything. How can I get IJ Scanner selector use the right MAC address for the wireless LAN port?

    I thought about it. I reinstalled the drivers of MP (again!) and that fixed it. IJ Scanner selector now has two cables and wireless MAC address for the scanner so all I have to do is to make sure to choose the right pair.

  • All OfficeJet5610v in a HP: HP printer will print but not copy

    HP printer will print, but not copy.  This computer printout, will be printed over the clouds, will analyse and will fax, very well. However, he suddenly stopped making copies. The scanner bar through the glass and lights, but he won't have a copy. All pages Gush in white.

    Hello @MTAI,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I would like to help you today to address the issue of copies in white that you encounter during the copy of your HP Officejet 5610v all-in-One Printer. To be honest, this problem looks more because of printing system, rather than a failure of the copy. The reason is because the copy uses the same exact material like scanning components. Because you are able to scan without problem on your computer Windows 8.1, we know that copy/scanning mechanism works within your printer. However, when you print from your computer, if the document is sent to your printer as a file of type 'image' the ink color is used to 'do' or 'enrich' the black ink. Therefore, your machine may be appearing in print in fine black ink of your computer, when in reality, it's just the color ink making the black color. When you copy from your printer, if you decide to make a copy of only black ink black will be used. If you choose to make a color copy will only color ink. To check if the cartridges and the print in your printer system working properly, I'll make you start troubleshooting by a quality diagnostic report print to your printer. Can I please you follow the steps below.

    How to print a report of quality diagnostic:

    1. Make sure the product is on and not used, plain white paper loaded.
    2. On the Control Panel, support on * and #, then press 1, 2, and 7.
    3. Press the right arrow key () until the reports displayed on the control panel and press OK.
    4. Press the left arrow button () until the vpp self test displays on the control panel and press OK. The test page will print.

    • (1) printed by the right cartridge
    • (2) printed by the left cartridge
    • If this report print with color and black: that the problem you are experiencing is not caused by your printing system. On the contrary, there may be a problem of programming that takes place within your printer which is originally the function copy to fail, while the scan function continues to work. Can I please have you check on your computer that your scan function always works right now.
    • If this report prints with lack of color or lack of black ink: that the problem you are experiencing is actually caused by a conflict of printing system in your printer, rather than a failure of the copy. To solve this problem please can I you click here. Once the support document opens, please run through the second step, step 3, step 4 and step 5. This includes measures void under the steps listed to complete. Once the troubleshooting is complete please try to copy again.

    Please reply to this message with the result of your troubleshooting. I look forward to hear from you!
