Re: Epson 2580 scanner

The only thing I can think of is to turn you to be scanned image up side down in the scanner bed.. IE Rotate 180' As another work arround simply open up Paint etc,and rotate the image 180' and save, ya should be all good.

How do you scan a slide on an epson 2580 scanner? It's scanning like a photograph not a slide.


You need the slide attachment, Read the Manual by clicking below.

And the adapter should be included in the box which you purchased

Epson perfection 2580 scanner will not start. Programs installed w/cd. Epson updates added. Just says" scanner can not start"

The first thing to try: a new USB cable and a different port. (If you are using a hub, try directly connecting to the computer). What does the device manager say about the scanner? (In Windows, access from the Control Panel > Hardware. Exact directions depend on the OS version.)

Check the transport lock on the bottom of the scanner - do not put the scanner on its side when you check the lock.

Make sure the scanner was on and had already warmed up (stopped blinking) before you tried to start the scanner software (either by the buttons or from the scanner). You may want to reboot the computer (in case the computer thinks one program has locked access to the scanner).

I hope this helps.

(scanners require two-way communication with the computer and a bad cable will stop the scan even when the computer sees the scanner and the software installed without a problem.)

I have a 2580 Epson Scanner and for some reason can't work with my Mac Pro, Can you please help me?

hi there, it may be that Epson hasn't developed drivers compatible with your system. My suggestion is to try it on another computer that has windows and see if it works. If so, go on Safari and type in Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed scanner drivers and see what comes up on Epson's website.

I have an epson 2580 it now produces somewhat

The only way you're going to know if it's the scanner or the driver for sure is to install it on say an XP machine and see what results you get. If it's still dark, it's the scanner, if not, it's the driver.

File settings dialog box is too high on screen to read, doesn't drag down

Go to the display properties of your computer and change the resolution.
