Question about Epson ACULASER CX11NF All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Can not get scanning to work over a wireless/network

Scanning has always been elusive. We've been able, in the past, to scan from a pc that is directly connected via USB to the All In One, but never from our networked laptops.

The printer has from it's menu to initiate a scan, and to send it to either a "Local" pc or a "networked" PC and there are never any of the networked PC's listed.

We've read through the manual and it does not have detailed enough instructions We think we need to find the IP Address of the Scanner, but can not locate that!?

What can we do? are there other applications we can use to control the Epson? The on printer menu doesn't allow very much configuration? elp?

The ip address for you scanner is already set. If you are able to print to it over the network than you will be able to scan from it over the network. The trick is that you will need to initiate the scan from your pc and not from the scanner. Look in your program files and find epson scan. there you will find epson scan setings. open this up and select a scanner, the cx11nf. Tell it that it is a network scanner and allow the program to find the scanner. Once found, you will need to test it. If you get full communication back from the scanner than you are connected and can then use epson scan to scan your documents and pictures to file.
If you cant find epson scan than you have not loaded the program and will need to reload the program.

How to scan from computer on Canon Pixma NX474

Install the EX Navigator software and make sure the scanner shows up in your scanners and camera devices. You should then be able to scan from the computer. If you are trying to scan over a network, try connecting directly with a USB cable. Scanning wireless is almost always a nogo.

I am trying to set up my PC which uses Windows XP to be able to scan to a folder from my CS-1820.

Two way to scan to the computer from this model from the USB or the ethernet connection. It depends on how the computer is connected to the computer. If you are connected through the USB than TWAIN scanning is what you will be using. You will need to go to this link to download the driver.

Just copy and paste that link. With Twain scanning you will need a photo edit program to pull the pic into your computer. As for the network scanning using the network port just ask how to scan using the network port that is another beast altogether. Hope this helps.

L7780 won't scan

First test: try a photocopy to check the scanner is actually working. If copy is blank or defective then you have a faulty scanner.

Second test: are you scanning to device/PC by USB cable or network. Network scanning is notoriously fickle and may need you to completely uninstall and then completely re-install the device. You may also need to remove all references to the scanner in you registry. If scanning by wireless - forget it and use a cable.

Not networked properly

Solution To resolve the issue, follow the steps in the solutions below in the order presented. Solution one: Scan from the EWS (Embedded Web Server) Verify that the product can scan and is connected to your network by scanning from the embedded Web server (EWS) on the product. Use the following steps to scan from the EWS:
  1. Print a Network Configuration Page from the product. NOTE: See the product documentation, User Guide, or online resources for information on how to print the Network Configuration Page.
  2. Locate the IP address.
    • Check in the Wired section if the product is connected with an Ethernet cable
    • Check in the Wireless section if the product is connected using a wireless network connection.
  3. Make a note of the IP address found in the appropriate section (wired or wireless); for example,
  4. Open the Web browser.
  5. Type the IP address into the address bar of the Web browser (such as . Then press Enter . The EWS for the product opens. If it does not open, STOP and click here to check the network connection between the computer and the product (c00047176) (in English).
  6. If the EWS page opened, find the Scan on option.
  7. Click Scan to perform a scanning operation.
  8. If you can scan from the EWS and not from the HP Director/Solution Center or from the product front panel, then continue to Solution two.
Solution two: Check the personal firewall settings When the firewall program is re-enabled after installing the All-in-One software over the network, it may block HP programs or ports required for scanning. If you see pop-up screens asking you to permit access to the network when you try to scan, you should permit access. NOTE: Firewall programs may also block the scanning operation even if they were enabled while installing the All-in-One software. Firewall programs do not always provide messages when blocking access. Follow Step one to allow access to HP program files and ports needed for scanning. Step one: Add programs to the firewall exception list
  1. Open the firewall program.
  2. Add the following files to the Highly Trusted programs list:
    • hpqkygrp.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
    • hpqscnvw.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
    • hpqste08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
    • hpzipm12.exe , located in the C:\windows\system32 directory.
    • hpzinw12.exe , located in the C:\windows\system32 directory.
    • hpqtra08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
    • hpqthb08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
  3. If these files are already added, check whether full access has been granted to them.
  4. Open the following ports on the firewall utility by following the instructions provided by the manufacturer:
    • UDP ports: 161, 427 and 137
    • TCP ports: 9220, 9500 and 9290
Step two: Restart devices on the network After making the changes to your firewall application, turn off the All-in-One, the computer you made the firewall changes on, and your router, and then turn on these devices in the following order:
  1. Router
  2. HP All-in-One device
  3. Computer
