Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Printer

1 Answer

Can't get it to scan

I have an Epson RX500. I have the twain Drivers downloaded but can't get it to respond to the scan command on the printer itself. If I open the smart panel icon on my computer and click it, it only gives me a list of various printers/scanners to select. I select mine and click OK and it does absolutely nothing. I followed all the steps from Epson's support web site, deleting all Epson folders and redownloading and installing. I have downloaded the following drivers from Epson's site: 10973, 11284, 10908, 11390 and installed each of them, with the exception of 11284: it keeps giving me an error message stating it could not install due to a file of the Epson Smart Panel not being found. I use OS X 1.3.9 operating system, FYI. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You do not actually need Smart panel to use the scanner. Epson scan will allow you to scan and save to the PC etc. To install the printer and scanner download and install Epson Scan and Driver from the following page. http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7MDXMcEkJfQFa89pC7QCDCv&tc=6#7
