Question about Scanners

Interface not connected

I have just bought an Epson SX600FW, and the copier and printing side of it works fantastically - I just tried to scan, however, and it says that the interface is not connected - but the USB is connected, otherwise it wouldn't be able to print...so what does this mean? I have two other cables I haven't used to that came in the packaging - one I think is an ethernet, and the other is a telephone cable for the fax part, I think.

Do you know what I could do to overcome this? Thanks a lot!

    Problem Solved. Cheers anyway.

    Hey, I actually had my neighbour come over to see what he could do, and left him alone - 10 minutes later, the printer wasn't working either. He'd done a good old muck up. Well, I suppose even pc-whizzes can get it wrong sometimes >.>

    I basically uninstalled all the software for it, disconnected it all, and then started from scratch to reinstall the software first and then reconnect the USB cable to it and the computer.

    Hey presto - it worked.

    Must have been a software installation problem.

Just bought it at thrift shop,new never used, no instructions, How do I use? can I use it on any scanner?


No these only fit on epson scanners due to the specific plug on the attached cable.you need and epson most models from 1200 series,1600 or 2400 series or 3600 will accept the transparency adapter.i have an old 1640 series that has one of these adapters.you can source a cheap scanner off eBay and download the drivers off epson site.then attach the scanner AFTER you install the software and it will find the scanner and connect to computer.Epson do provide a good scanning program as part of the download.you will need to choose negative or positive to scan.higher spec scanners have built in transparency hoods and can scan at higher resolutions.quite honestly if you are okay with say 6x4 inch prints a basic scanner is fine if it scans at least 2400 dpi.

Prints 1" wide blue streak from top to bottom of page


If you're holding the paper so the narrow side is up, and the blue streak is vertical, then it's not a bad print head. If the stripe is from side to side with the paper held that way, then possible that the head is bad. The 4530 is an office type printer with large carts that connect to the print heads with hoses. It's possible that a hose has come off and is dumping ink that way, or that the hose is leaking...

Epson scanner cannot communicate


My solution was that Epson Scan was set to connect via network instead of local. (All was working fine, then it quit-something changed this setting) Try this, go to start, choose all programs, choose Epson folder, choose Epson Scan, choose Epson Scan Setting. In the pop up box set the connection to local or network, whichever is appropriate. Close the window and open photoshop and all works fine. It could be that your problem is the opposite of mine- I try switching this to the other setting even if the change is wrong, then switch it back to see if that works too.

Good Luck.

Epson scan icon missing


I have the same problem. Re-installing the 141mb Epson software does not fix the problem. I can print just fine but since there is no scan icon I am unable to scan. If I try scanning from the printer, it says "communication error". I'm fast approaching "junk it: stage and will search for another printer brand. Wasting way too much time on this one simple task.

My Epson SX600FW will not scan to my computer


It should, Im assuming its usb, you need the latest drivers installed first.You can get them here but select the right ones for your operating system.

http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=YZnBT5wk60a27fZjPcy5GXVbrM4aWfZe7L9AKBeB0qAU003D&tc=6

When you do the install of the new drivers unplug your scanner from your computer, install the drivers first. Then Im sure it will prompt you to plug your scanner back in to your computer after that you should be able to scan anything you want too.If it doesnt prompt you then plug the scanner in and reboot the computer (restart) after that you should be good to scan.

I hope this helps you out if it does give me I Yes that I did help you. Thank you!!!!

Not printing from Smart Panel option


Because they can't talk directly to each other. Kind of like the scanner is speaking in German and the printer is Spanish....The application used for the scanner is bilingual, therefore the printer can understand what it is supposed to print.

Epson Perfection v200 stopped working on my imac


Try to scan using epson scan to isolate the issue. You can launch epson scan from applications. If you can scan using epson scan, call adobe to troubleshoot further on photoshop.
If you get an error epson scan cannot be started or if it won't launch. It could be connection or driver issue.
To uninstall/re-install twain on mac, follow the instructions:
- go to applications. Trash epson scan and epson scanner monitor
- Go to library then application support. Trash epson scanner module.
- Go to library then image capture. Trash twain data sources.
- Go to the hard drive. Click on user. Click on the name of your computer. Click on library. Click on preferences. Click on epson. Trash epson scan.
- Empty the trash.
- Restart your mac.
- Log on to support.epson.com. Type in v200 in the search box on the top right corner of the page then click search. click on the first search result. Click on the drop down box and select macintosh operating system instead of windows. click on the second driver down, epson12527.dmg then click on download now. Select no thanks, i prefer not to receive this information then click accept. Install the epson scan installer after the download.
- Then try to scan using epson scan.
If epson scan won't launch or you get an error, try a different usb cable.

Goodluck.

1670 no image scan


Same Problem (WinXP System). I found leaving it off when not using it fixes my problems. (Its like the scanner light overheats or overloads the light receptors and it just sees white from then on, no matter what you do on the pc side of things). Other problems while stumbling into this "fix" include WIA drivers loaded which will stop scanner working properly, and finally scanner drivers seemingly working when USB cable in connected to another port other than what it was installed on but no image is shown (Not 100% sure if it was same problem as detailed at top)

Printer Port is used by another device


Just only check and delete error print task queue in all of printers.

Start->settings->printers and faxes.

Right click and open each printer on your machine to find which printer remain error queue and delete it.

Good luck...
