It sounds like the scanner lamp is not coming on, the scanner shipping lock is still set, or the scanner unit is not coming to the home position

Can I get a driver for the epson perfection 1200 scanner that is compatible with windows vista. at present it will not work with vista and I am told no driver is available, otherwise I have to buy new...


this is pretty ancient model, but... you can try to use winxp twain driver and it should work, your registry most probably will need bit of tweaking... version which will most probably work is TWAIN Driver v5.53A,

follow this procedure, disconnect your scanner from computer, run ccleaner to clean all rubbish, including registry clean.

download twain driver and then run it, force vista to accept it, reboot your computer. connect scanner and you will have then warning from vista about digital signature, disregard it and force install software. scanner should work.

i still would suggest newer version...

Trying to install my epson stylus cx3200 to my HP desktop computer. It's not one of the listed models. I need a name of model that is compatible with epson stylus cx3200.


If I knew what software you have, I would have had instruction for your too

Go to the web site below and download and install
Twain Driver ver 3.04 for Vista and the Printer Driver version 6.5 or 5.5 for Vista
The Twain Driver ver 3.04is number 5 down the list for both 32-bit and 64-bit Vista
If your computer is 64 bit, and that is what I thought your computer was, because you have home premium. Then you need number 4 down the list. It be number 5 if you have 32-bit Vista.


The printer driver version 6.5 is number 4 down the list
www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/.../supDetail.jsp?oid

When you go to that web site you'll see a tab Support and Driver-select tab
Next select All in One-view all
and then a meun will display and select your printer model and just follow the steps To the file to download above.

Power off the Epson. Your twain software did not install correctly.

unfortunately Epson has not made a driver for this scanner that is compatible with Vista and from the looks of it, they don't seem to have any plans on making one!
Sorry
