Uninstall the software and reinstall. Use an ethernet cable and try scanning. If that does not work then your scanner feature has a problem. Probably very expensive so I suggest you go to the Epson site and look under Clearance. New/Refurbished have a 1 year warranty, replacements are quick and free shipping both ways. A All-In-One is $45 shipped, the ink costs more than that. Check this website for CISS system which saves lots of money.

That's because you can't scan over wireless. In order to scan, you need to be connected via USB, so I hope you've got a MacBook...

Wont connect to each other


connect the airport extreme to the voyager using a network cable... factory reset the extreme and then connect to it using the airport utility... you should get a setup screen where you can switch the extreme to "bridge mode" .. everything else should happen automatically.. you will then have 2 wireless networks?

When connected to Airport Express via USB, it will


Airport Express provides only a print server, not a networked usb hub so it can only print. I'm afraid you'll have to go back to wired for scanning.

I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)


I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.
