Re: Scanner Problem

In the menu(on the printer), there is a option where in you can specify if you want the scanner to scan in mono or colour it is set to mono that is why you are not getting any colour scans.

I have printer plus scanner epson l200. and I thought there is option for scanning a film. but it turned out the option is greyed out. I wonder if this type is available for scanning film or there is

To scan film, your scanner needs a light above the film. Not just a light, but a calibrated light. That is why the scanners who can scan film and transparent sheets, have a lit with a light in it. Your scanner does not have this, so scanning film is not possible. One of the cheapest (flat bed) scanners from Epson is the V600 and costs about $200, Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner

I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.

Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.

How do i use my scanner?

If you want Photocopy by using scanner just put your original document on scanner and press copy option.
here is two copy black and color for black copy and color copy

If you want to scan from printer to PC. Install scanner software from your driver CD and use scan sofware.
Remember that you can use only page for scan. can not use book. because this is not flatbed scanner.

First off, I'm not too sure if that Printer is a color printer. Its a color scanner yes, but i don't think is a Color Laser Printer! Secondly, can you explain in more detail what kind of scanning and printing issues you have witht the printer? Prints unclear as in blurry or too light? are u having trouble installing the scanner or is it not scanning the images correctly? regards babb
