Disconnect the scanner, uninstall the drivers. Restart the comp and connect the scanner with power-on. The comp would respond a new device found. Reinstall correct drivers and your are on!.

My Epson Perfection 4490 Scanner insists on scanning my 35 mm slides as regular color photos. How can I switch the dscanner to scan my slides as slides?


Of course that is what it will do. The same as ti will do as a negative. Neither can be printed out other than as a picture.

EPSON Perfection 4490 - Ireflective media scans, film doesn't


There are two lamps with this model. One in the base for reflective and one in the lid for negatives and slides. If the base one is going out then it will be trying to use the one in the lid. You must remove the white document mat from underneath the lid to expose this lamp so it can scan your negatives.

Epson 4490 photo scanner drivers will not install on winxp system


I'm running Windows XP and have had similar problems - where the install process informs of a problem (at beginning of install) and to "Restart and try again".

Eventually resolved issue by selecting "Custom" install, then ticking all the selection boxes as had been automatically done in "Recommended" install - then continue with the install.

All sections of software now installed correctly.

Pc does not recognize 4490


HI-

Try to replace the usb cable and try to plug it in a different USB port on your computer. Hope it didnt break aything when it fell, try to check the ports from the scanner as well. make sure you are not getting any red light when scanner is turned on. check under device manager for conflicts under imaging devices. If you see a question mark or if the scanner is not listed unde imaging devices, keep me posted so that we can check on your unit. Thanks!!

Epson 1660 Flat Bed Photo Scanner


The Epson scanner (about 8 yrs old) doesn't shut off when attached to an iMac w/the Leopard operating system.  To "solve" the problem I bought a small desktop Canon LIDE 90 scanner that runs on 2.5 watts of power and uses 1 watt on standby mode.  It appears that they all need to be unplugged to shut down the power.
