    I scanned 3 pages fine. On the 4th page, I heard this clicking noise and the scanner bar is stuck and will not move. I turned off, unplugged, but did not correct problem.

There is a micro switch in there somewhere and you need to make sure and press it. This will unlock the bar. If you cannot find it, your best bet is to take the scanner apart, carefully. push the scanner bar back to the starting position. Make sure it is snug at the end or you will have to redo the whole thing.

When I try to scan one 4x5 positive sheet film it gives me 6 thumbnail pieces rather then one image?


Open Epson Scan and select Professional Mode. Turn off the Auto Thumbnail option which if it is not on the main page then check the small drop down menus next to the Scan/Preview options. Once that is off do a preview and the in the preview window manually draw a marquee around the area you need.

Scanner error


Press the On button to turn off the Stylus Photo RX500. Unlock the transportation lock. Make sure that all packaging materials have been removed. Turn on your Stylus Photo RX500 again. If the error message still appears, call Epson so they can replace your printer.
Goodluck.

Hi FYI, A lamp Circuit board and assembly would cost around 80% of the total cost of a brand new printer. Plus labor costs.

Scanner not scanning


Your 'transportation locks' may have been engaged. (Check lower-left-hand-corner of the inside the scanner cover and the left-back side) See the manual: http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/pr48ph/pr48phrf/maint_3.htm
