I can't work out how to use the scanner

I want to scan some A4 documents on to my Mac using my Epson Stylus photo RX520.  I'm evidently being a bit dim but I can't work out how to do it.

Instead of people just posting links to websites and instruction manuals or general drivers, it it more helpful to answer the question.
The resolution to the issue of not being able to scan A4 directly from the RX520 is that you can't do it from the printers control panel. You need the software, Epson Scan. The one I needed for my mac is here.. http://esupport.epson-europe.com/FileDetails.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=vRaxNXeC8zjpwXneB3wC0JM+3mL8GgugSyPaKr4sHqEU003D&id=325981
For other machines/OS versions you may need to navigate around this part of Epson's site. You can also use their free chat facility to speak with an agent. It's very good

How do you scan a document using a pc?


The printer can be used for scanning without a computer in sense of the scanner offering a copying facility - in B+W or Colour just by pressing the appropriate button on the printer. However, for scanning via the computer, if you are using a Photo programme (like say Adobe Photoshop or virtually all such programmes) normally you will find under the FILE menu (when programme is open) that you should see a menu item on the drop down menu when you click on FILE something like IMPORT - and the Epson printer will be seen listed in the menu that pops up. If you click on that, the Epson scanner programme will start. Normally there is a simple mode but you can change that to the PRO (or may be called Advanced mode) when you can do things like PREVIEW - which will then scan the document or photo in the scanner - and you can in the PRO mode change such as the resolution, what type of documents and so forth. When the Preview runs, you will see the document appear after the quick scan in the main RH panel. You can use a select tool to select the bit you want to scan if not the whole - most into on this will be in their manual - which you should have on the CD that came with the printer. Anyway - always worth ensuring you have the latest drivers, etc. so go to this link on the Epson website, click on Scanner Driver and Scanner Utility and download and install. Whilst on the Epson website, download the manual for that model as it will answer many queries for you as regards printing and scanning. All such info and software for downloading is under SUPPORT area - you select the region in the World where you live, then search for your printer model. The Epson website will normally auto-detect your computer's operating system to ensure you get the right version of Printer Drivers, other software and so forth. If you have no Photo Programme as yet - get Faststone Image Viewer (free) as an excellent programme. http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDownload.htm

My computor does not recognise my scanner


Hi

Pls check for updated driver for scanner on support.epson.com, because i believe that this printer doesn't have a wireless scanner server so the scanner will not work wirelessly.

Hope this helps

Scan problem


try copying a page and see if that works

that will prove the unit is not faulty

if that works unplug the printer uninstall the printer software restart the computer reinstall the printer software and plug the printer in when asked.

if copy doesnt work the unit is most likely faulty
