Epson Stylus Photo RX595

I just bought a new all in one & everything else works fine on it , except the scanner. I get the scanner icon on my desktop , however when i fo to use it , it tells me " epson scan can not be started . & for me to use the trouble shooting assistance, which doesn't help at all. uninstalling & reinstalling the all in one doesn't either. when I finally do get it to work, as soon as it tells me I need to restart PC , the problem starts all over again. I got it work work for a short peroid of time in Twain. Now I can not get it to work at all. been to the update drivers section - tried that- Nothing - Nada.

Most of the all -in-ones require calibration. Ensure this is done. Assuming there is no hardware problem in the scanner, reinstall OS. You may have to install all other software also.

When I turn on the Epson v700 scanner, only the little blue light on top blinks but the scanner will not fully turn on and it makes no sounds. It was working fine a few days ago. I never had any problems...

Epson scanner cannot communicate


My solution was that Epson Scan was set to connect via network instead of local. (All was working fine, then it quit-something changed this setting) Try this, go to start, choose all programs, choose Epson folder, choose Epson Scan, choose Epson Scan Setting. In the pop up box set the connection to local or network, whichever is appropriate. Close the window and open photoshop and all works fine. It could be that your problem is the opposite of mine- I try switching this to the other setting even if the change is wrong, then switch it back to see if that works too.

Good Luck.

Epson scan icon missing


I have the same problem. Re-installing the 141mb Epson software does not fix the problem. I can print just fine but since there is no scan icon I am unable to scan. If I try scanning from the printer, it says "communication error". I'm fast approaching "junk it: stage and will search for another printer brand. Wasting way too much time on this one simple task.

My printer/scanner says that for some reason,


The ink is very caustic, it may have seeped out of the sump and ruined the print heads. No way to repair, sorry.

Epson 1660 Flat Bed Photo Scanner


The Epson scanner (about 8 yrs old) doesn't shut off when attached to an iMac w/the Leopard operating system.  To "solve" the problem I bought a small desktop Canon LIDE 90 scanner that runs on 2.5 watts of power and uses 1 watt on standby mode.  It appears that they all need to be unplugged to shut down the power.

EPSON V700 Photo Scanner


Unplug the power supply from the power port on the scanner then plug it back in after a few seconds and power-up if it isn't already on. This happens to me a lot and this works every time. Frustrating though.
