Check to see if you need a bidirection cord connecting the 2 units.

Does not print


Epson sylus notorious getting getting corrupted software
1st Uninstall all Epson stylus printer software prividing you have instalation disk
Disconnect Printer
Restart computer and check to make sure under control panel / printers that there is no primary printer in there if there is delete it
2nd give printer power cable /communication cable good clean and check the printer port on computer isnt damaged.
3rd turn computer off reconnect printer have software ready but only if it is required most window systems have enough data with them that it will recognise new printer and install auto but if it asks for disk you will have it ready.
4th turn computer back on see if it notices new printer if not not to worry put disk in and install software,which will normally take you through a connect cables and power and install guide after that it should do a test print, if this comes out everything should ok again, but just check in control panel/ printer, and make sure its marked as default printer
hope this helps

Did you ever get a resolution to your problem? I have exactly the same problem with same error message - and very loud clicking noises coming from the scanner. Powering it down - allowing it to "cool" for 5 minutes will get probably 1 or 2 documents through the scanner before the error message reappears. But this is only a workaround rather than a solution.

You do not actually need Smart panel to use the scanner. Epson scan will allow you to scan and save to the PC etc. To install the printer and scanner download and install Epson Scan and Driver from the following page. http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7MDXMcEkJfQFa89pC7QCDCv&tc=6#7

My Epson CX3900 prints fine. It's when I try to open Epson scan that I get an error message "Cannot properly communicate with scanner"


if the unit is directly connected via USB, another program or prev installed scanner software is using "the path" to communicate with the scanner. Can only use one scanner at a time with windows.
