It looks like scanning isn't configured correctly.

Run terminal. Click: Applications -> Accesories -> Terminal

Type:

sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/dll.conf

Press enter. Then at the bottom of the file add

hpaio

save, exit.

Then to configure the printer run:

sudo hp-setup

Then follow the steps. Be sure to have the printer IP available if you are going to set up the printer queue for over the network.

Thanks for your support of HPLIP--we appreciate it.

Think I made it worse, hp setup cannot find printer and now hp-check gives me 15 errors!

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the
HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies
are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode
will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).

Hi

  The problem is with the hplip version which you have in you linux box which does not support scanning, you need to upgrade to the latest version which is there on the hplip site.

    You need to upgrade to the latest HPLIP 2.8.12 which is there in the below url.
