Question about Epson Stylus CX5000 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

Epson Scan application won't open.. Mac OSX, Epson CX5000

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?

SOURCE: Mac OSX 10.4.11 Error when installing the Epson NX400

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.

How to scan documents to computer EPSON stylus sx410/tx410 ?


Hi Susan,
Basic Scanning
You can scan original documents and photos and save them as files on your
computer using the Epson Scan software. You can also launch Epson Scan from
any TWAIN-compliant application, such as Adobe Photoshop
1. Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the scanner
glass, in the front right corner, as shown on page 9.
2. Close the cover gently so you don't move the original.
3. Do one of the following to start Epson Scan:
Windows:
Double-click the EPSON Scan icon on your desktop.
Macintosh:
Double-click EPSON Scan in the Applications folder.
If you are scanning from an application, start your application. Then
open the File menu, choose Import or Acquire, and select your Epson
product
Select Full Auto Mode as the Mode setting
in the upper right corner. (If you are in
Home, Office, or Professional Mode, you see
a different Epson Scan window.)
5. If you want to restore faded color in a photo
or make other corrections, click Customize.
Then follow the instructions in the next
section.
6. Click the Scan button. The image is scanned
and you see its icon in Windows Explorer or
Macintosh Finder.

I can not scan from my HP Photosmart C7180 All in one. Mac OSX 10.6.8 I can copy, print but not scan.


Launch the OSX system preferences, click on the Print & Scan Icon located in the Hardware row, select your printer in the left hand column, click the Scan button above the right hand box, click on the Open Scanner button, a new window will open, click on the scan button in the upper right hand corner of that new window, set your document on the flat glass panel of your multi function printer/scanner, and click the scan button located in the lower right hand corner of the window, once scanning is complete, your document image should appear in a new window and save the image from there.

If you are running the drivers included in the Mac OSX, you won't have levels. These are generic/running drivers only.

How do you get an Epson Stylus NX410 out of copy mode?


The NX400 will automatically go into Scan or Print mode from software. So if you want to scan, launching the Epson Scan software will control the scan functions. Similarly, printing from any application will cause the NX400 to go into Print mode. Copy Mode is the only mode you control from the printer device itself.

Hope this helps.

I need to scan A document using an epson RX425 printer how do I do it #


It depends somewhat on your OS and the software installed you have installed. With a Automatic Document Feed, the pages need to be face up and the top edge forward in the feeder. On the glass platen, put the documents face down.

Open a TWAIN-compliant scanning application (XP, Vista and Win7 all have Paint which can acquire scans). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan. If you installed other software (such as that which came with the scanner), you would use that - Epson Smart Panel or ArcSoft Photo Impressions. Next open Epson Scan (this doesn't work with the Mac software so look at epson.com for Mac info). This runs the scan (and any specific resolution adjustments you make). It will generally launch when you hit Scan in the application. You can run Epson Scan alone if you do not want to edit the documents right away. Click Start > All Programs > Epson Scan > Epson Scan to use Epson Scan. In the Epson Smart Panel, you would click Scan and Save to start scanning or Scan with Options to adjust the settings prior to scanning.

If the Epson Smart Panel is installed and set up for it (including having a monitor running), you can also initiate scans from the scan button on the unit. Scan problems most often occur when there is a block in two-way communication. Try a new data cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. The cable should be under 6' long for best results.

I hope this helps.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

EPSON STYLUS CX4800


You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.
