    I have an Epson Perfection 4490 Photo scanner that I've used for at least a year and a half with out a problem (G5 iMac with OS X, v10.5). This past week it just quit. The green power light comes on, but scanning software can not find the scanner. In the "About this Mac" utility, the scanner does not show up as an attached USB device. Any ideas of what has happened?

You have to verify the cable. It must be half disconnected

How do I make my Epson Perfection V33 scanner work with my mac laptop? It worked fine before I installed Yosemite. Thanks!


Hi
It is very likely that the drivers for your latest OS are different to those for your previous OS, and that the OS is not upgrading them automatically as is usual with Apple OSs.
I suggest you go here:
Epson Perfection V33 Scanner
select the relevant Mac OS from the drop down menu - I think it should go direct but it may not - download and all the relevant drivers and software from the page. Install the drivers from the downloaded files and then the software.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I am able to print again but cannot scan . Can someone help me ? I have the disc and have uninstalled and re installed the program...


Since you have a USB connection, try a new USB cable or connecting to a different USB port. Make sure that you have the Epson utilities and drivers for your version of Windows 7 installed. (To check if you have the 32-bit or 64-bit OS, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise it's the 32-bit version.) You can find the drivers for printers from Epson.com. Click on the Drivers and Downloads tab at the top of the page. Then select your printer. (I've seen two versions of your request - one listed the printer as the ESP 3 and another added it was the 310. The only 310 all-in-one that I was listed at Epson was the Workforce 310. Please clarify this.)

If you installed a generic OS driver, you may only have a printer driver. Unplug your USB cable and uninstall this generic driver before attempting to install the Epson software. To launch scans by pressing the buttons on the scanner, you will need the Epson monitoring software running and the destinations for the buttons set up. Start your scans from your computer first.

Windows Fax and Scan and Paint are included in the Windows 7 software (except in the Starter version) and will acquire scans if the scanner driver is installed. Fax and Scan: New Scan. Paint: File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan. Photo Gallery in the Windows Live software can also acquire scans. Trying one of these alternatives may give a better idea of what your error is.

Windows may not think a scanner is installed or a communication issue may be at fault.

I hope this helps.

I have upgraded my system Os from XP SP3 to Windows 7, after that when I installed Epson Stylus CX2800, everything was working fine except Scan program


Get a windows 7 driver for the printer or an update from epson, un-install the old one then reinstall the upgraded software.It did the same with my Lexmark,but I did get the newer driver from Lexmark and it worked out fine.

My Epson perfection 3490 photo scanner doesn't work on leopard. It worked fine on tiger. Do I need to download new software? The CD that came with my scanner says it is for Mac 10.2 to 10.4.


I googled Epson support and found the answer. Here it is:
Macintosh Leopard Support Contact Supportrightmenudottedline.gif apple_leopard_logo.jpg
Welcome to Macintosh OS X 10.5 Leopard support for Epson products. Here you can find out how to get drivers and other Epson software for your Epson product that work with Macintosh OS X 10.5.
Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers. If the CD indicates support for Macintosh OS X 10.5, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your drivers and other software.
If your CD does not list OS X 10.5 Leopard, follow the Step-by-Step Instructions below.

Epson scanner 1240U


needle3000:  The Epson "Perfection" 1240U Scanner won't work with Mac OS X 10.4.11 possibly due to the program it is being run from. Like you, I had the same problem: it wasn't being recognized. Epson's drivers installed and ran correctly. Scanner even appeared under Bus in USB Device Tree in System Profile. Finally, I discovered that the Scanner runs if opened directly from EPSON Scan.app under Applications. The problem, in my case, was my ancient version of Photoshop (5.5.) from which I was running it.
 Hope that helps!

Epson scan application won't open


Do you mean the old powerbook has the same OS as the new one, or the same epson software version?

In any case, this is all I found on it:
