Scanning should be easy  - have you tried using the scanner interface on the computer not by pressing buttons on the printer - HP Photosmart Software as specified in the manual page 27 http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01855375.pdf
That printer only has a USB interface so it need to be within reach of the computer

Page 28 of the manual describes the procedure and involves initiating a scan using the HP Photosmart software.
