Question about Epson Perfection 1250U Photo Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Epson 1250 scanner will now not open ''Scan to application''

I have spent 3 hours scanning 35 documents and the 36th will not scan to application. The ''Scan to Application'' button appears in the Smart Panel and the bottom of my screen. When I press either nothing happens. Also when I attempt to close ''Scan to Application'' a message appears saying that I will lose all my scanned images, so they are there somewhere.

All other scanning functions do not work either.

Any help you can give me please?

Thank you.

How do set up my lexmark pro901 to scan to my pc so that I can email the scans

Make sure the Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer driver is installed on your computer. If you have the install disc that came with your printer, just insert it to your computer hard driver and follow the instructions on your computer screen. You can also the download the printer driver from the Lexmark website at Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Again, just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Note: The install disc contains the Lexmark OCR scan software necessary for scanning documents for editing and saving them as PDF files. The downloaded driver does not contain the OCR software.
To scan to your computer using the printer operator panel:

1. From the home screen, navigate to Scan to Computer: Scan > Scan to Computer

2. Touch USB-Connected Computer or the name of a network computer. The local or network computer is the destination that will receive the scan. Wait until the printer has finished downloading a list of the scan applications available on the selected computer.

3. Select an application (in your case your email), and then touch Accept.

4. Select the color, resolution quality and the original image size. If necessary, touch Accept each time you make a selection.

5. Press the start button to start scanning. The scan is complete when the application you selected in step 4 opens on the destination computer, and the scan appears within the application as a new file.

To scan to your computer using the printer software (Lexmark Printer Home):

For Windows:

1. Click Start.

2. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.

3. Select Printer Home.

4. Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

5. Click Email, and then select Photo, Document or PDF.

Note: You can select Document only if an OCR application is stored on your computer. Scanning starts and the scan progress dialog appears.

6. When the scan is finished, a new e-mail message is created with the scanned document automatically attached.

7. Compose your e-mail message. Note: If your e-mail program does not open automatically, then you can scan the document to the computer and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.

For Mac:

1. From the Finder desktop, double-click the printer program folder.

2. Double-click the printer Center to open the All-In-One Center.

3. From the "What is being scanned?" menu on the main screen, select a document type.

4. From the "How will the scanned image be used?" menu, choose To be viewed on monitor/web page.

5. From the "Send scanned image to" menu, choose an application.

6. Click Scan.

7. Retrieve the scanned image from the application, and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.

I hope this information has been helpful.

    I am out of ink cartridges (none in the printer) but I just want to scan can I do this?

    You can still scan using either the command menu on the scanner or the HP software from you computer. As long as you are not trying to print, having no ink should not effect the scanning.
    If you have the HP solution center software, you can open that application and pick scan a document or scan a picture.
    From the PSC 1610v controls follow these directions:

    Scan to an application

    You can scan originals placed on the glass directly from the control panel.

    1. Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.

    User Guide 59

    Use the scan features

    2. In the Scan area, press Scan To.

    The Scan To menu appears. The Scan To menu lists destinations, including

    applications, for anything you scan. The default destination is the one you

    selected the last time you used this menu.

    The Scan To menu can be configured. You can designate which applications and

    other destinations appear on the Scan To menu by using the HP Image Zone

    software on your computer.

    3. To select an application to receive the scan, press until the destination you

    want appears on the control panel display, and then press Start Scan.

    A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Scan window on the computer,

    where you can edit it.

    For more information about editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image

    Zone Help that came with your software.

    4. Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have

    finished, click Accept.

    For more information on editing a scan in the HP Scan window, see the onscreen

    HP Image Zone Help.

    The HP All-in-One sends the scan to the selected application. For example, if you
    chose the HP Image Zone, it automatically opens and displays the image.

    Sorry my scaner not working but printer will be working please tell me whats wrong

    1. The firewall must allow the following traffic.
      • TCP on ports 9400 and 9401
      • UDP on port 6000
    2. Make sure Scan Manager is configured for the correct IP address of the printer. If Scan Manager will not launch from SmartPanel and it does not show up in Control Panel, check <WindowsDirectory>\twain_32\Samsung. Without Scan Manager installed the printer will not be able to scan to PC.

    To use Scan Manager you will need to have installed and configured the following items:

    • Installed the Print Driver, including the Smart Panel application
    • Installed the Scan Driver, including the Scan Manager application
    • Have an active connection between the Printer and PC

    Important: If you don't have these items in place, stop now and perform the installation.

    To scan to the PC using Scan Manager, follow these steps:

    1. Right click Smart Panel in the task bar, and then select Scan Manager. (Scan Manager Admin dialog appears)
    2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&

    1. Select the Printer you want to use, and then click Quick Scan. (Quick Scan dialog appears)
    2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&

    1. Once the Quick Scan dialog appears set the following parameters:
      • Save Location - To change the default location click the Folder Icon to Browse for Folder.
      • File Name - The default file name is the date and time the scan is performed. To change the File Name, select the File Name field.
      • File Format - The file type selected will be the default file type for each consecutive scan. Select from the following formats. (TIFF, PDF, BMP, and JPG)


    1. After entering the previous information, click OK. (Scan Manager appears)
    2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&

    1. Click Scan to scan the document to the PC.
    2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&

    For additional information about Scan Managers' features and settings, click the question mark icon (?) at the top of the application window.

    I need to scan A document using an epson RX425 printer how do I do it #

    It depends somewhat on your OS and the software installed you have installed. With a Automatic Document Feed, the pages need to be face up and the top edge forward in the feeder. On the glass platen, put the documents face down.

    Open a TWAIN-compliant scanning application (XP, Vista and Win7 all have Paint which can acquire scans). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan. If you installed other software (such as that which came with the scanner), you would use that - Epson Smart Panel or ArcSoft Photo Impressions. Next open Epson Scan (this doesn't work with the Mac software so look at for Mac info). This runs the scan (and any specific resolution adjustments you make). It will generally launch when you hit Scan in the application. You can run Epson Scan alone if you do not want to edit the documents right away. Click Start > All Programs > Epson Scan > Epson Scan to use Epson Scan. In the Epson Smart Panel, you would click Scan and Save to start scanning or Scan with Options to adjust the settings prior to scanning.

    If the Epson Smart Panel is installed and set up for it (including having a monitor running), you can also initiate scans from the scan button on the unit. Scan problems most often occur when there is a block in two-way communication. Try a new data cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. The cable should be under 6' long for best results.

    I hope this helps.

    How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?

    Hi there,

    Scanning images,
    About Scanning images
    You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

    * Before scanning
    Before scanning images, confirm the following :
    - Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
    If the software is not installed, install it.
    - Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
    - Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
    Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

    Scanning Methods.

    A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
    MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
    You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

    Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
    Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

    You can launch the following application software from the MP Navigator.
    * Easy-PhotoPrint (Photo Printing)
    * ArcSoft PhotoStudio (Photo image editing)
    * ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
    - This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

    Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
    For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.

    B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
    You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.
    Important : Do not insert or remove USB cables when scanning images with the machine connected to a computer, or when the computer is at sleep or standby mode.
    *If you are using Windows XP
    The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

    *When using Mac OS X
    For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

    1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
    2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
    3) Select the scan option.
    a) Press [Scan].
    The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
    b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
    Scan standby screen is displayed.
    Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.
    Save as PDF file : The document is scanned and stored as a PDF file.
    Attach to E-Mail : The document is scanned, and the image is attached to an e-mai using the e-mail application software.
    OPen with application : The document is scanned and displayed on the registered application software.

    4) Press [Color] or [Black].
    The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
    Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
    Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

    C) Scanning from an Application Software
    You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).

    Hope this helps.
    Please rate my response.
    Have a good day.
