Question about Epson Perfection 1670 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning App won't open.

I get the following message when I try to open the EPSON scan application: "EPSON scan cannot be started.  Please use the Troubleshooting assistant to..."  etc. etc.  I'm using a Macbook Pro running OS X.4, and the scanner had worked fine up with this config until a few days ago.  The scanner light turns white as soon as I plug in the USB cable, stays that way, and none of the usual sounds are made.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Actually, it's okay- I just installed the windows drivers under Boot Camp, and that seemed to 'reset' the scanner under OSX.

Epson perfection application not working on G5 10.5.8


hi there. you actually downloaded the right driver :

try this Run Photoshop in Rosetta mode; Epson Scan 2.77A only runs in Rosetta mode.

Follow the steps below to run Photoshop in Rosetta mode:
  1. Open the Hard Drive, select Applications > Adobe Photoshop, then select the Adobe Photoshop icon.

  2. Hold down the drv_mac_407_er.gif-I keys to open the Get Info window.

  3. Check the Open Using Rosetta option, then close the window.

  4. Start Photoshop.

Can't calibrate the scan before scanning


I had the same problem when upgrading to mac os x. I was trying to scan directly from Photoshop but got the calibration message. I tried the two solutions given at the Canon website but they didn't work. I ended up downloading the Toolbox application to scan directly from there but the same message appeared. After installing the Toolbox application I unistalled the driver (11250) and reinstalled it. I opened Photoshop and tried scanning and the calibration window appeared only this time it didn't stop to give me the "Flim Adapter" warning. I must point that the scanner lid was open when this happend but I'm not sure that had anything to do with it.

So apparently it works if you have the Toolbox installed prior to installing the driver. The driver, Toolbox application and unistall driver can be found at Canon's website. Hope this helps.

Ciao!

Epson Perfection v200 stopped working on my imac


Try to scan using epson scan to isolate the issue. You can launch epson scan from applications. If you can scan using epson scan, call adobe to troubleshoot further on photoshop.
If you get an error epson scan cannot be started or if it won't launch. It could be connection or driver issue.
To uninstall/re-install twain on mac, follow the instructions:
- go to applications. Trash epson scan and epson scanner monitor
- Go to library then application support. Trash epson scanner module.
- Go to library then image capture. Trash twain data sources.
- Go to the hard drive. Click on user. Click on the name of your computer. Click on library. Click on preferences. Click on epson. Trash epson scan.
- Empty the trash.
- Restart your mac.
- Log on to support.epson.com. Type in v200 in the search box on the top right corner of the page then click search. click on the first search result. Click on the drop down box and select macintosh operating system instead of windows. click on the second driver down, epson12527.dmg then click on download now. Select no thanks, i prefer not to receive this information then click accept. Install the epson scan installer after the download.
- Then try to scan using epson scan.
If epson scan won't launch or you get an error, try a different usb cable.

Goodluck.

Try just using the epson scan utility


1. Launch Epson Scan by going into your HARD DRIVE, APPLICATIONS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

-LOCATION defaults to HD/USERS/(YOUR USER NAME)/PICTURES. Click CHOOSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG"
4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.

Scan copy to computer


Please check the original software disk that accompanied the scanner. You should have the option to install a twain or twain32 driver at the least, which would allow you to scan from within a graphics program (photoshop, or even paint).

Scanning neg


Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
For scanning transparencies in HOME mode - for EPSON SCAN models, not Epson Twain/Manual mode models.
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in FULL AUTO MODE as the scan begins click PAUSE or CANCEL, then change "Full Auto Mode" to "Home Mode".
2) You will now see all Epson Scan settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the large preview button to get a visual of what is on the scanner.
3) Ensure the settings on the Epson Scan are correct for what you wish to scan. For example, the DOCUMENT TYPE for transparencies must be either "Color negative film", "B&W Negative Film" or "Positive film"*.
* FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is set for a flatbed related option, ie PHOTO, the scanner is looking for reflective items and will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT TYPES for "FILM" are greyed out or cannot be selected, close the Epson Scan, reseat the power/communication cable connecting the base of the scanner to the transparency unit, then reopen Epson Scan and try again.
NOTE for PROFESSIONAL MODE users: DOCUMENT TYPE should read TRANSPARENCY for film scans.
4) Ensure the other scanner settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing. For example:
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no means to calculate what your exact needs will be in this situation; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing a THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, or you see in the preview that part of the scan is cut off, click the down arrow next to the large PREVIEW button and click NORMAL, then PREVIEW again. In NORMAL PREVIEW mode, the scanner will capture all information on the flatbed; you will then have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button (click, hold, drag) to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.
