    I get the same problem. I have the latest drivers for my OS (Vista Home Basic), installed correctly (reinstalled a few times now just in case) and I tried your solution as well, I'm also having the same problem with the print queue not clearing. It says its deleting, but never does. I need to turn off the printer, manually delete the print queue, then turn the printer back on to be able to print anything else.



    Normally, when I hit the scan start button, the Lexmark software pops up and asks where it wants me to save. Now, the scanner does nothing and the LCD screen on theprinter goes back to the selection screen. Nada. Any ideas? I find it odd that so many people have just recently, in the last coupe of months, have started having this problem. This has to be from a Vista update, wouldn't you think?

Try resetting it by turning it off and unplugging it, reverse steps and try again. If no go, try claering print queue, if this fails, get your driver disc and uninstall the cheeky beggar and reinstall it. cheers lilacgerry xxx

How do I scan an item and send a copy to a friendI am using a Photosmart C5280 printer


Please follow the steps below to do a clean installation of your scanner.

The first thing we need to do is remove any files that have been installed and start with a fresh installation.

1) RIGHT-CLICK on the MY COMPUTER icon and click on PROPERTIES.
2) Select the HARDWARE tab, then the DEVICE MANAGER button.
3) Remove the Epson Scanner from under IMAGING DEVICE and/or UNKNOWN and/or OTHER DEVICES by RIGHT-CLICKING on it and clicking UNINSTALL.
4) Disconnect the USB cable and close all open windows.
5) Click on START, and CONTROL PANELS.
6) Double-click on ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS. Highlight EPSON SCAN and click on CHANGE/REMOVE.
7) Restart your computer.

DOWNLOAD

Please follow the steps below to download and install your scanner in XP:
1. Go to the website http://support.epson.com
2. Under the SCANNERS heading select PERFECTION SERIES and then your scanner model.
3. Under the Drivers & Downloads section select Windows.(Make sure it is the Epson Scan utility. Download the most current version of the Scanner Driver for your Windows operating system to your DESKTOP.

Reinstall

1) Double Click on the Epson1**.exe file that you downloaded to your DESKTOP.
2) Click OK, Unzip, and then OK again.
3) The installer will copy the files to the system. Click on FINISH when prompted.
4) Connect the USB cable. Windows will tell you new hardware is found and complete the install.
5) If a message appears indicating THE SCANNER HAS NOT PASSED WINDOWS LOGO TESTING, click CONTINUE ANYWAY. Then click FINISH.
6) Your scanner is now ready to use.


Use the following steps to scan with the Epson Scan utility:
1. Open Epson Scan by going into START, PROGRAMS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.


-LOCATION defaults to MY DOCUMENTS. Click BROWSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG". More settings for file format are found under OPTIONS.



  1. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
  2. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
  3. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
  4. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.
  5. Now you can use them in mail and send to your friend.

You need a program that you can use on your PC with this program you scan it to your PC and then print it out, ok you need a program like art or photo or paint or some thing like this that have a scan in it.

The best program to put on your Pc is what I use and it is Free you, it is called PagePluse SE, you should try it you can do all sort of things with it but there no scan on it, just scan your photos to the your pc with another program witch has scan on it and put them in the SE program and you can do any size you wont and after adding text to it or backgrounds you can send it to the printer and print, an other program I use for scanning from the printer to the PC is called PainShop Pro 7 witch is a old program there newer ones out now but I am happy just using the old one it does the trick.

The Free version is Called PagePluse SE you not need the version 9.

HP PSC 1610 - multiple lines in scans and copies, prints OK


Try a sky scan (No paper on glass and lid up) watch the scanner to see if it is smooth or a somepoint jumpy. If not smooth, you will have to open it up and 1 of two things, dirty and needs lubracation, silicone grease is best vasoline will work. OR 2 the drive belt is loose because the spring tensioner is broken or the belt is dammaged. Good luck
