I looked at whatsopuny said and went from there. I used windows search utility to look the file he suggested, didnt find it, and then did a search for *.ds. I found a file named per1670.ds in th epson folder -- which I figured was the same thing. I copied that and then saw a file located in the TWAIN_32 folder. I clicked on that, then on the toolbar clicked on file, then "open containing folder." When I got there, I went up one level to get to the TWAIN_32 folder and pasted in the per1670.ds file that I had copied. I didnt know if that would do it, but I restarted my computer, and it worked.

Had same problem with mac os 10.4 solution was downloading the latest epson driver from epson it still didn't work. turned out that the "epson perfection 1670.ds " old file was in the trash and the scanner was still using it. I turned off the scanner, rebooted the mac and "empty trash". Turned scanner back on and it worked. If you still have the problem make sure that you only have on "epson perfection 1670.ds" file in your HD,library,image capture,twain data sources.

Hello, I am attempting to scan an important document and the printer keeps saying "set the document on the platen glass" the document is there but it keeps saying the message


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

Did you ever get a resolution to your problem? I have exactly the same problem with same error message - and very loud clicking noises coming from the scanner. Powering it down - allowing it to "cool" for 5 minutes will get probably 1 or 2 documents through the scanner before the error message reappears. But this is only a workaround rather than a solution.
