I beleive a clicking noise on that model is the waste toner is full. I think the waste toner is in the drum unit but not certain if on that model if you can empty it. You can pull the drum out and take a look if there is usually a clear plastic cap that can be removed and empty the waste toner.

How to copy and paste images

I think the best way is to take a screenshot of the image and copy it to the clipboard. After that, you can paste it to blank sheets as long as it supports displaying images directly. Free Online Screenshot allows you to take a screenshot and offers an option of copying the screenshot.

How to attach pictures to appear in Yahoo mail

Some are having a hard time emailing a picture to recipients using yahoo email. They want the exact picture to show in the body of the message but somehow cannot do it and end up just attaching the image as file.

The fact is, you can only be able to place pictures which is already uploaded in the internet. In other words, the image that you want to place inside the body of the email should have a static URL or the exact web address of that particular image file. To explain this further, open your yahoo email and compose a new email.

Take for example you're going to insert this image in the body of your message:

You need to select the image to HIGHLIGHT the picture. Click at the end of the image and drag to the left to highlight the image just like what is shown below.

Once the image is selected, press ctrl + c to copy. Do not right click on the image to choose copy because that wont work.

Now, go back to your new message in your yahoo mail and right click on the area where you want to paste it and then choose paste.

That's it!

Because of high humidity, the photographic print has stuck to the exposure glass. Place the print on the exposure glass in either of the following ways:
  • Place an OHP transparency on the exposure glass, and then place the print on the OHP transparency.
  • Place the print on the exposure glass, and then place two or three sheets of white paper on it. Leave the ADF open when copying.
White stripes appear on the OHP. Fragments of paper are stuck to the OHP. Use a dry cloth to wipe any paper fragments off the back of the OHP. The image on the back side of duplex copies has mottled blank patches or is smudged. Missing patches and smudges are caused by moisture leaking from the paper.
  • Do not install the machine in areas that are susceptible to low temperatures.
  • Use paper that has been stored where temperature and humidity conditions meet the limitations we recommend. For details about the paper storage conditions we recommend, see "Paper Storage", About This Machine .
  • Install the Optional anti-humidity heater. For details about the anti-humidity heater, contact your service representative.

I want to change the signature on my outgoing emails. How do I do that? Can I add a logo to it?

1. Go to your email box.

2. Click on 'Options' (upper right, blue letters).

3. Scroll down to and click on 'Signature' (second column, under 'Management').

4. Select> 'Editor: Plain | Color and Graphics.

5. Enter signature text and/or graphics (you can 'Copy' and 'Paste' text and/or graphics directly into the input field).

8. Check the box:
'[/] Add signature to all outgoing messages'
Or leave the '[_] Add signature....' box unchecked and check box below compose area (when sending messages) '[/] Use my signature'

9. Click on the 'Save' button (upper left, under 'Mail' tab).


You can 'Copy' and 'Paste' your pictures directly into the input field (if the image is JPEG format - ".gif" or ".jpg"), but there is limited space. If your picture suddenly disappears, it may have gotten corrupted during the process, try it again. Note: some images may not allow you to copy them due to HTML restrictions on the page.

If your picture is in your computer, you can send it to yourself via an attachment and it will be in your 'Search Shrtcuts' > 'My Attachments' - 'My Photos' folders.

After you locate your picture in the search shortcuts folder:
1. Double-Left click on the photo to open.

2. One-Right click on open photo to reveal the pop-up menu.

3. Choose 'Copy'.

4. Go to signature input box and one-Left click on target area to set cursor.

5. One-Right click to reveal pop-up menu.

6. Choose 'Paste'.

Or you can upload your image to '' and 'Copy' it from there.


The Color and Graphics version of Yahoo! Mail also gives you the ability to include HTML graphics in your signature, by doing the following:

1. Locate an image (".gif" or ".jpg") that you wish to add to your message. This image can be selected from the Web.
2. Once you find your your picture of choice, right-click your mouse and select "Copy" from the menu that appears next to your cursor. Note: some images may not allow you to copy them due to HTML restrictions on the page.
3. Login to your Yahoo! Mail account.
4. Click the "Mail Options" link in the upper right-hand area of the page.
5. Click the "signature" link in the left-hand Personaliztion column.
6. Make sure the cursor is in the Color and Graphics signature field and paste your copied image by pressing "Ctrl+V". Your fonts, sizes and colors should all remain the same. You can also resize your image.

If you would like to edit your signature in the future, just return to the Signature area, make the changes you want, and click "Save."

Scanner not responsive. You can choose to have the document scanned to your PC but nothing happens and either location.

Hi, we need to check first if this issue is caused by the scanner it self or by the scanner driver. Please try the following to check if your scanner is physically functioning or not:

Basic Copying
1. Open the scanner lid.
2. Place your document face-down on the glass. Move your document about 0.1 inch from the top and side edge so your entire document is scanned.
3. Close the scanner lid.
4. Be sure the COPY button is lit. The default copy settings are displayed on the control panel.
5. Press the Color Copy button (for color copies) or B&W Copy button (for black and white copies). Your document is scanned and then printed.
Note: Depending on the copy settings chosen, your copied image size may not be the exact same size as your original.
If the image was successfully copied please uninstall the scanner driverm download the latest driver in and install it. Try scanning.

If the issue still present we will need to ensure the scanner is being recognized correctly. Have you had any other scanners installed on the computer previously? We would suggest checking the DEVICE MANAGER for any conflicts.

Get to the Device Manager by:
1. Right-Clicking on MY COMPUTER
2. Left-click on PROPERTIES.
3. Click on the HARDWARE tab, then DEVICE MANAGER.
In the Device Manager please for the following:
1. Any yellow or red X's, question marks or exclamation marks.
2. Under the Category of Imaging Devices - Check for Epson Product name.
If IMAGING DEVICES is listed, test the scanner from PAINT.

To scan in paint:
3. Choose COLOR PHOTO.
4. Scan.

It is also possible your Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service is not started.

To start this process please follow the steps listed bellow.
1. Click on Start, go to Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel window you will Performance and Maintenance, please left click that option.
3. Next we are looking for Administrative Tools, please left click on that option.
4. We are looking for the Services icon please left on that icon.
5. In the Services window we are going to scroll down to the bottom and look for the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) Service, Please Right click it with your right mouse button.
6. We want to select the STOP option with your left mouse button.
7. Next we want to Right click on the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service again and select the START option with your Left mouse button please.

Wide blank area on Lead Edge, or Misregistration possibly accompanied by noise. The noise may be described as a clicking, buzzing noise while making copies. The noise may stop for short periods while making copies. Cause:
The registration Sol. pawl is not capturing the clutch to keep it from turning. This is caused by the Registration Sol. return spring being out of position, or when installing the Main Drive Assy., the pawl is "trapped" in the actuated position.
