    When I start scanning a document, there is an error message appearing that says:

    Cannot properly communicate with the scanner. The carriage unit may be locked depending on your scanning model. Make sure the scanner is properly connected and set up to scan. Then, turn the scanner off and back on again.

SOURCE: Scanner not recognized by computer

Try to check control panel>device manager>check if there is an imaging device on the list. If none, it means that the computer is not detecting your printer. Try to plug it in to other port or try to use another usb cable. If still won't work, you need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the scanner

SOURCE: EPSON PRINTERS how to replace inks in epson DX 7450

You must surely have sorted this one out by now Doris! However, if you haven't, how to change print cartridges on a DX7450 is very clearly explained in the user handbook (on the CD that came with your printer). Insert the CD and select "Custom Install" then "Users Guide". Once its installed, double click the new Epson Icon on your screen and selct "Printing" then "Replacing Ink Cartridges". If you don't have a CD, download the User's Guide from the Epson website at http://www.epson.com - just choose your locale, then select Get Drivers and Support - Printers.

SOURCE: Scanner problem of Epson stylus CX5500

There is 4 buttons on the left hand side of the unit, these are for copying only. the scanning component of you printer is software driven. You will need to have setup the Epson scanning utilities on your computer. These came with the printer when you purchased it, however are also available for download from Epson in your country / region. Just go to www.epson.com and select your country and download the scanning utilities for your printer.

SOURCE: Epson DX7450 won t charge ink

In some cases the chip on the cartridge will work for multiple models but this doesn't always mean that ALL cartridge colours will be the same.

It sounds like you either have the wrong magenta type or you have a cartridge which is incompatible. I'd look for a supplier that can confirm 100% that they have the correct chip for your printer and try that.

I should warn you that you may find that fixing the magenta provides you with a warning on a different cartridge as sometimes the chips interact with the printer in rather odd ways that give false positives or error indicators.. So be prepared.

Hope this helps somewhat.

SOURCE: epson stylus cx8400 cannot recognize ink cartridges

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.
