If you are using a computer with a Windows Operating System (XP, Vista, etc., ) I can help. Just follow these directions: (From beginning to end)

1) Make sure that the power to your scanner is On but do not plug your scanner into your computer until instructed to do so by the software.

2) Place the CD that came with your scanner into the CD drive of your computer. Install the software for your scanner and plug your scanner into your computer.

3) Re-boot your computer.

4) After re-boot, place a document you want to scan under the lid of your scanner.

5) Go to:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint (and click on the Paint program.)

6) When Paint opens, go to the upper toolbar in the program and click on, 'File' then scroll down and click on, 'From Scanner or Camera.'
(a window will open)

7) Click on the icon for your scanner and then click, 'OK".
(a window will open)

8) Choose the type of document you wish to scan and click, 'Scan".

9) Note: Some scanners take a moment to 'warm up' before scanning. If your scan doesn't begin immediately, just be patient.)

10) Your document will be scanned and automatically imported into the Paint program.

11) When you can see the scanned document in Paint, (again) go to the upper toolbar and select, 'File' > scroll down and select, 'Save As' > (your Pictures Folder will open) > type in a name for your document > and click, 'Save'.

12) You can now exit the Paint program and go to your Pictures folder. There, click on your scanned document to view it.

This could be a symptom of a bad cable. Scanning requires bi-directional communication with the computer. So print servers, usb hubs and any other poor connection will sometimes block the scanner from working when the printer works. Make sure that the Epson monitor program is running.

I hope this helps.

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.

To scan a picture into your PC you will need the Epson Scan program installed on the PC. This program comes on the CD with the printer, but if you don't have the CD it can be downloaded from Epson:
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=lkuCfcvA9cw9QvTDrIKIPz9cEUPBvKk9
It may already be installed, if you have Windows go to the Start menu and look for Epson Scan Utility. Turn the printer on and place your photo on the glass under the scanner cover. Click on Epson scan and you can choose 3 methods. Fully automatic, home mode or proffessional mode. fully automatic is the simplest method, simply click on the scan button. For the others be brave and experiment!

Getting to just scan pic into the pc


First of all ensure that you have all of the drivers for both the printer & scanner installed on your PC. You will also need the Epson Scan utility installing. These should all be on the disks that came with the printer or are available to download from Epson:
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=106004&prodoid=63075469&infoType=Downloads&platform=All

To scan a picture into your PC, just click on the Epson scan icon on your desktop (or from within your Start menu's). Place the picture to be scanned face down under the scanner lid and press the scan button. Don't forget to save your picture before exiting the scan utility.

Instruction manual for Epson CX8400


Hi,

You can scan magazines and newspapers using this machine. You will need to use the Epson Scan software which is included in your printer driver disc. The picture below shows you need to select Home Mode and the important setting is for you to check the Descreening Filter option. You can just select other option to your own needs. For other question regarding this, please email me. Thanks!

EPSON DX4450


1- Is software loaded? try reloading it.
2-check to make sure it is selected as the printer to print to.
File - print - click on epson then print
3- Try going to My computer - printers and faxes see if it's there then double click on it go to scan picture

sometimes it will not recognize the scan button on the printer, probably because there is a problem with the driver, but it will recognize it through the pc.

good luck
