How do I scan a document into my computer with an EPSON printer?

My printer can be used as a scanner too. But when I press on "copy" on my printer *** scanner, nothing appears on my computer asking me to scan or whatsover.It would only scan the details of that document onto another piece of paper, and not into my computer which is what I want.

You need to have OCR (Optical character recognition) software on the computer. There are several free programs avaliable. Do a google search for OCR. That will give you a location on your computer to send you document to.

How do you scan a document using a pc?


The printer can be used for scanning without a computer in sense of the scanner offering a copying facility - in B+W or Colour just by pressing the appropriate button on the printer. However, for scanning via the computer, if you are using a Photo programme (like say Adobe Photoshop or virtually all such programmes) normally you will find under the FILE menu (when programme is open) that you should see a menu item on the drop down menu when you click on FILE something like IMPORT - and the Epson printer will be seen listed in the menu that pops up. If you click on that, the Epson scanner programme will start. Normally there is a simple mode but you can change that to the PRO (or may be called Advanced mode) when you can do things like PREVIEW - which will then scan the document or photo in the scanner - and you can in the PRO mode change such as the resolution, what type of documents and so forth. When the Preview runs, you will see the document appear after the quick scan in the main RH panel. You can use a select tool to select the bit you want to scan if not the whole - most into on this will be in their manual - which you should have on the CD that came with the printer. Anyway - always worth ensuring you have the latest drivers, etc. so go to this link on the Epson website, click on Scanner Driver and Scanner Utility and download and install. Whilst on the Epson website, download the manual for that model as it will answer many queries for you as regards printing and scanning. All such info and software for downloading is under SUPPORT area - you select the region in the World where you live, then search for your printer model. The Epson website will normally auto-detect your computer's operating system to ensure you get the right version of Printer Drivers, other software and so forth. If you have no Photo Programme as yet - get Faststone Image Viewer (free) as an excellent programme. http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDownload.htm

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.

I cant seem to find a scan option on my epson


Once all of the drivers are downloaded and the printer is connected to your computer, you can initiate a scan of a document two ways.

First, you can select Copy on the printer and it will copy the document placed on the scanner.

Second, you can scan a document to your computer by going to: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint.

When the Paint program opens, (in the upper toolbar) click: 'File' and scroll to 'From Scanner or Camera'. Then, select your device (Epson scanner) and click, 'OK'.

Continue with the prompts and your scan will be imported into the Paint Program. To save your scan, Click, File > Save As > (name your document) and select a folder for your scan to be sent to.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks.

I want to copy a document


How often do you need to "copy" documents. Do you have a document scanner?  Your Epson is a printer.  You'll need a scanner to scan a document into your PC then you can print it out on your Epson.  If you only need a copy once in a blue moon, and you don't have a scanner, save yourself a few bucks and just go to Kinko's or maybe even your local grocery store or library and run your copies there.  They probably cost about 25 cents a page.  A new scanner will run you about $100 bucks.  If you decide that you need a scanner, you might even want to consider investing in a multi function printer which will scan-print-copy-fax.  Hope this helps.  If so, please remember to rate my solution.  Thanks.

How to use the scanner on my Epson 60000


there are different type of scannig programs. I am not that particular with your epson scanner. You can try scanning the document and if you want to archive it you can try choosig the option of file type as compressed tif. If you do not have this option there would be times that scanning software will have the preview of the document you have scanned and will asked you if you want to reduce or enlarge size. If resizing option is not available in your scanner software you can try saving it first in your computer. After saving the document try to open microsoft word and create a new file. Then look for the document you have scanned and copy that document. Once you have copied it go back to microsoft word and paste the documet. you could now resize the document manually. but for further clarification you can try calling your scanner provider. they might have some programs for it and will give it to you

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 http://support.epson.com 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:
1. Click on START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > PAINT.
2. Click on FROM SCANNER OR CAMERA.
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.
