your scanner can not scan above 300. you can try windows scanning, but i wouldn't recommend. New scanners are still a little pricey but are worth it.

I don't think it's any of those things. I think it's a Twain Data Source problem. When you install the software for your scanner, make sure you also install the twain data source files. This is the scanning protocol used by all scanners and if not present, the scanner won't import images into Photoshop under the command "File" -> "Acquire."

I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.

Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.
