Question about Epson Stylus CX5000 InkJet Photo Printer
My Epson CX5000 works as a printer and copier, but it's scan function won't launch at all when I click on the Epson Scan icon in my applications folder (Mac OSX 10.4). There was a time when I would get some sort of error message. I've installed the same driver again, and also download the combo driver package from the Epson support page. In both instances, I've repaired all disk permissions using Disk Utility. Epson Scan still won't open at all, and I don't even get any sort of message, or response, at all. The only thing that does happen is that the Epson Scan logo turns into a transparent ghost that rapidly increases in size and floats upward for a split second (the same way any icon responds when you open a program), but beyond this, I get nothing. I just wrote Epson about this but haven't receive a response yet.
Is there any way out of this, or should I see how far the printer will go when I toss it out the window?

If you're running the install program from the install disk CD, it may be attempting to create a work folder on the CD instead of your hard drive. I would drag a copy of the install program onto your hard drive first and then launch the copy on your hard drive.
Let me know if that solves your install woes...
best of luck on this.
