OfficeJet 8600 911a Won't Scan Full A4 Sheet

I have a Hp Office jet 8600 at home and I have been using it for quite sometime now. It is a n all-in-one printer with scan function too. Yesterday while I tried to scan a paper it returned nothing. I tried it several times but again no result. What is the issue with my printer scanner and why can it scan an A4 sheet?
