I have recently bougth CX9300F but every time one of inks end the device is completly locked. how can we run other functions like scan at this case. really this problem rased alot of dissatisfied and...

in the application of the multifunctional printer there should be a option to ignore cartridge status when using scanner, also scan should be started on pc side and not on printer side, the cartridges stop scanning because once you press that button it scans document and then prints it, not sending it to pc.

also there are lots of applications online which can replace your scanning application from epson.

hope that helped, best regards

Try running these scans in Safe Mode.

Keep pressing F8 on startup, and choose 'Safe Mode' from the list that appears.

If you still find it locking up during scans, you may have a hardware problem that needs fixing.

My computer locks up after a few minutes and you have to hard power off

have you installed any new software? run an antivirus scan and malwayre bytes scan to make sure your not locking up do to faulty software . also if that doesnt fix it let me know bc you can re-install it back to normal like the day you bought it really easily with the boot partition . but first run it in safe mode if it doesnt lock up then its an issue with a program running on your pc go to msconfig
BUT FIRST do this
win xp
start-run-msconfig- start up and shut off everything you dont need all programs especially ones with weird names
vista-7 start menu search box for msconfig and do the rest.
let me know

PC is for ever locking up, either in standard windows operations or on the internet. Locks up 7 or more times every hour...Too the point I quit using it; Basic info: Intel Pentium D 830 3.0GHz chip -775...

Change your Bios to tolerate greater or wider changes in temperature. Virus scan, malware scan, make sure you know what is coming in and going out of the computer.
