Scan function on HP 4480 doesn't work, worked before.

 

I am unable to use the scan function on my hp deskjet f4480.  I uninstalled and reinstalled HP software, but the HP Scan software doesn't seem to 'find' my printer.   If I press the 'scan' button on the printer directly, I get the error message:
"The scan cannot be performed because another program has control of the HP Imaging Device."  I get this message whether I am running the HP Scan program or not.  
The device has worked in the past.

PS - I tried online help, gave up after waiting for an 'expert' for over 5 minutes.
