Answer:-Sometimes it happens that HP Envy Printer will print the documents from the computer and also the copier will work fine, but the Scanning part doesn’t work. It’s not the problem with HP Envy 4500 printer. There is a problem with computer services and drivers.

If you are pressing the SCAN button on the printer and it shows you “HP Envy 4500 Scan to computer is unavailable” that means computer services that have been corrupted. Your printer is not able to communicate with computer services.msc.

NOTE:-  If HP Envy 4500 Scan to the computer will not enable after following these troubleshooting steps, then you have to fix the computer services.
