Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

If you use Windows software, try the built-in Scanner and Camera Wizard to drive the scanner rather than its own button. The Wireless Test report is a different button on the little screen menu so that's probably become associatged withthe scanner button somehow. By-pass that and see if it works properly then we can take the problem from there.

That HP should scan and copy independently of a wireless or any other connection to a computer.
