Is there a way to disable the scanner altogether?
In the past, she's turned the power off then on again dozens of times, and eventually, when it passes the test for some reason; It will print. I was unable to duplicate this after several times trying and I couldn't imagine doing this every time. I also couldn't imagine that HP would manufacture a device that would be worthless if one function failed.

Try the good ole reset first:
1.Verify that the 6110 is switched ON.
2.Remove the power cable from the back of the machine.
3.Wait 20 seconds. Press and hold down the POWER button as you reinsert the power cable.
5.Release the POWER button when the unit is ON.
Unplug the power cord when the printer is ON, then press and hold the # key & 6 key together while reconnect the power cable ... release the buttons.
Let us know.

The scanner portion of this device is not used often. If there was a way to disable this and only use the printing capabilities, that would be great. I looked around for information on this and was unsuccessful.

You'd want the problem fixed, if possible. Make sure the 6110 is plugged directly into a wall outlet [not surge protector.] And, this non-HP forum thread may give you more ideas, even though it refers to other model *-in-ones:

This action is written only for ITRC Support Forums and I do not approve to anybody to copy it, redistribute, publish it etc.
If CCD line sensor is operational than this action should do the job. It requires some technical experience, one torx T-10 Screwdriver, one 0,4x4mm flat screwdriver, one lint-free cloth and one spare Hg scanner bulb diameter 3-4mm 245mm long.
I am saying again: if you are not certain what are you doing you will destroy it. Also this may not solve the problem!
Unplug power and USB cable from device!!!
1. Remove ADF unit from scanner top.
2. Remove front panel bezel
3. Remove front panel (unlock latch in middle bottom than pick up for 20 degree and remove flat cable from back.
4. Unscrew four screws from top of scanner
5. Release two latches from front of scanner and remove scanner top with glass.
6. Clean the glass with lint free cloth especially part where is white stripe (white balance calibration tool)
7. Easily move scanner carriage to left of scanner. WATCH out not to brake any mechanical part!!!
8. Pick-up a bit scanner rood from left (opposite to the stepper motor) and remove toothed belt from scanner carriage.
9. From top two rectangular holes, using small flat screwdriver, release scanner carriage cover.
10. Release scanner flat cable from carriage PCB.
11. Remove scanner carriage from scanner.
12. Remove scanner bulb. Be very gentle! First remove cable from small inverter board than on cable side remove bulb from white holder. Release the holderâ s latch in the middle and remove the bulb with bulb white holder.
13. Clean scanner mirror without removing them (if you remove any of them you will distort optical geometry and focus) with lint-free cloth as much as you can. Also be very careful when cleaning lenses in the middle of carriage.
14. Exchange scanner bulb with new one in bulb holder and than put it back in scanner carriage.
15. Attach scanner carriage flat cable back. Put carriage back in its chamber. Put cover back on. Attach toothed belt for scanner carriage.
16. Put back the cover, front panel, bezel, ADFâ ¦ in couple of word put back all together as it was.
17. Plug power to device without connection USB cable. Push power on button.
This is also applicable to LaserJet 3300, 3310, 3320, 3330, 3020, 3030, 3380 than officejet 5510, photo smart 2175 Ail etc. Basically this applies to problem that may occur on devices whose scanner is made with Line CCD that operates longer than year or two, 24x7, in dusty environment.

Before to trash your printer try to open it, with a bit of attention it is practicable, and clean the scanner equipment. Sticks, glasses and mirrors, all is accessible.
I guess this is the main solution to this problem.
Come potete vedere qui:
Prima di buttare la vostra stampante provate ad aprirla
e a pulire tutte le parti relative alla funzionalitÃ di scansione.
Aste, vetri e specchi, tutto Ã¨ accessibile.
Credo che questa sia la soluzione principale a questo problema.

Worked for me too. All problems resloved with this quick fix.

Once I used the printer and restarted it the problem returned.
However, after cleaning the underside of the glass the problem was resolved! I only tried this after reading the following post and seeing many others have success after cleaning the glass.
Hope this helps!

Turn on the unit and as the scanner head moves about two cm to the left, pull out the power cord. Repeat this process about ten times so that the scanner bulb is now exposed where the thin strip of glass was. Clean the bulb VERY CAREFULLY with a cotton bud, and the mirror underneath it. Replace the thin strip of glass and the plastic frame and power on. Hope this helps.
