Did you install HP Scan and Photo software on the pc it's connected to?? It uses USB so check in device manager for any conflicts. Check for me on the front panel of the scanner/printer for buttons that's marked Copy, Scan, Fax.

           It is a network printer so it is not attached to any pc in particular.I have added it as a local printer to my laptop to try and see if something was hidden on the DC\Fileserver.I used the install cd that came with the device but it is only for the printer.I belive this model printer prints to e-mail only but have no idea how to set this up.

Wgpierce is right. The HP LaserJet 4100 MFP includes a very fast scanning technology that automatically sends your document directly to an email address.

Using the flatbed scanner on the top of the machine – or the 30 page automatic document feeder – you can quickly and easily scan in anything you would normally fax – and ‘beam’ it to where it needs to be. It arrives practically instantly, at virtually no cost – and in colour! The recipient can even receive your faxes on the move. It beats your old fax hands down.
