Question about Epson Perfection 3490 PHOTO Flatbed Scanner
My scanner quit communicating properly with my PC. I reinstalled the software on a new PC and have the same problem. It communicates partially, because when I push the "pdf" button on the scanner, I get a message dialogue box titled "EPSON Scan" stating that
"Cannot properly communicate with the scanner.
Make sure the scanner is on, properly connected, and properly set up to scan.
If using a SCSI connection, restart your computer."
I've rebooted, disconnected and reconnected cables -- always same result.
What suggestions do you have? Thank you.
The new PC was Vista and the CD that came with the scanner completed loading a driver without complaint. However, a new driver was needed for Vista. After downloading the new driver from Epson, uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver, it worked.
