My epson decided this morning not to make copies. It will print from the computer, just doesn't appear to scan to copy. Error message-see documentation? Unplugged unit, turned off and retried. Hit reset to default. No idea what else to try.

Re: will print wont copy
Turn the Epson unit off. Now lift the scanner cover and look on the left-side for a toggle switch with the familiar lock/unlock symbols. Change the switch to unlock, turn the unit back on, and test for proper functionality.
The following picture should help in locating the toggle switch:

You can diagnose most problems by checking the control panel LED's for ink out, paper-out or copier problem. If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer. It may also be helpful to try running a printer nozzle check.

Check if there are no parts in the printer, making it impossible to close all lids, or can block free flow of the paper. Check if you have paper in the printer. Connect it to a computer to check if it gives an error.

Install another scanning software, if you have photoshop or any imaging software, you can use the scanner by going to the menu, then choose File, Import, TWAIN, Acquire and the scanner control will appear.
Or just go to My Computer and double click the scanner icon (in XP) to start the scanning assistant.
How often do you need to "copy" documents. Do you have a document scanner? Your Epson is a printer. You'll need a scanner to scan a document into your PC then you can print it out on your Epson. If you only need a copy once in a blue moon, and you don't have a scanner, save yourself a few bucks and just go to Kinko's or maybe even your local grocery store or library and run your copies there. They probably cost about 25 cents a page. A new scanner will run you about $100 bucks. If you decide that you need a scanner, you might even want to consider investing in a multi function printer which will scan-print-copy-fax. Hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate my solution. Thanks.
