Question about Epson Perfection V350 Flatbed Scanner
I'm on a Mac Pro with OSX 10.4.11. Scanner no more than 6 months old. No problems before with either if them. All cables correctly connected. Computer and scanner do have contact -- warms up when starting computer and software (Epsons). Hates me when clicking Preview or Scan, leaving me with message: "Epson Scan cannot be started." Also tried VueScan and mess is: "Cannot properly communicate w the scanner. The carriage unit may be locked dep on your scanner model. Make sure the scanner is properly ... bla bla. Then turn the scanner off and back ...".
I cannot find any carriage lock -- if any. Seems software and scanner don't talk all the way?
Urgent help is needed, my hair is growing very gray ... Thanks in advance.
I had the same problem. Re-installed the drivers 3 times with no luck. Read this post then swaped USB ports, turned the scanner off and on again, and it worked. So weird and so simple!!??

Thanks for your answer. I already tried all that -- the USB didn't show up at in the system profiler. Finally I pulled out all USB connections and tried all over = working!!! The problem was a relatively new USB con to a JBL loudspeaker. I never thought USB could intefer with each other, but now I learned something new :-)

Try to reseat or unplug and replug the usb cable for the scanner to your mac, errors indicating that the computer is not communicating with it. you can also go to apple icon then go to system prefences or system profiler, click on hardware then USB check if there is an epson scanner under USB device tree
keep me posted
