    I have a Mac with the latest system 10 software. The scanner on my Epson CX 6600 used to work before I had system 10. I have tried downloading the latest drivers but it still will not scan.

My Epson Styluss CX6600 won't charge


This may be very simple. Turn the unit off and lift up the top. On the forward side of the unit you will find a little 'slider switch'. This is the scanner unlock - toggle the switch back and forth several times and leave in the unlock position. Turn on the printer and all will be well.
