Hi guy's, thanks for your assistance. No you diddn't solve my proble, but it did make me think and go back to basic principles.
I was trying to operate my EPSON DX8450 printer in scanner mode fron the machine, can't be done! You have to access it and operate from your SET-UP system in your computer!

Regards & thanks
Ian

I have printer plus scanner epson l200. and I thought there is option for scanning a film. but it turned out the option is greyed out. I wonder if this type is available for scanning film or there is


To scan film, your scanner needs a light above the film. Not just a light, but a calibrated light. That is why the scanners who can scan film and transparent sheets, have a lit with a light in it. Your scanner does not have this, so scanning film is not possible. One of the cheapest (flat bed) scanners from Epson is the V600 and costs about $200, Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner

I have never used my scanner


Make sure that you install Drivers and Programs/Software that you got when you purchased this printer/scanner first.

Usually, Scanning Program Comes with the Scanner and they are very easy to use.

If you do not have the CD that came with, then go to Epson site and download should be available for you.

If Scanning software is not available from Epson Website, then Download Driver at least then install.

You should be able to find any Free image editing program and usually they have Scanning Capability.

EPSON ACULASER CX11NF Scanning problem


Your epson scan software is most likely corrupted or there is another application consuming the memory on your pc. Try uninstalling the software and reinstalling. If this does not fix the issue, then you have another application on your pc causing you issues.
The epson scanner will not appear in your scanners and cameras in the control panel, this is one of the known funnies with windows and most manufacturers know about it. the create their own interface which you can find through you program files under epson scan.
